Are they male or female? We all have our own ways of communicating conciously & un-conciously. Try to read the person’s personality, I diffuse alot of unwanted contact with slight humor. Its can be as simple as what u say and how u say it. Body language and direct eye contact are what people look 4 n communications (reply’s), remember that and make sure to convey ur feeling strongly that way. Top it off wit a lil smart [email protected]# humor, not playful, direct, without the uncomfortable body language & c what reaction u get.
If subtle doesn’t work, some only learn from the direct approach. All n all, I feel if you are a professional demand/command that respect from all. The $ is never worth more than my respect.
