    I don't go out of my way to talk to them, but I don't try to avoid them unless they're only interested in spreading rumors and gossip or give me advice when I haven't ask for it.

      hi sheilamyers, that's a good point, plus it's actually a good approach to take.

    I am polite when I have to deal with them, but otherwise I try not to interact with them if I don't have to.

      Totally agree FatFreddysCats. Sometimes it easier that way. Don't engage when at all possible.

    I would be polite but distant. If I really don't like someone, I would never be rude but I would not go out of my way to engage them in conversation. But sometimes it helps to figure out why you don't like someone to get peace with it.

      Yes, I think that's going to their level, I think giving people the benefit of the doubt is a good thing, but sometimes that limit can be reached. Plus some people just have an attitude that never disappears.

    I'm polite to those people but try not to interact with them if I don't have to especially if they have a destructive energy such as being a gossip or being negative.

      Ya, I'm like that too. I'm at a point now that I don't like being around people who criticize others or who bring down the mood of the group with negative attitudes.

    It is difficult to be with those you dislike the best is to ignore that person mingle with those you like and can have a conversations with. Avoidance is better than confrontation.

      Very true. At least if you avoid them, you don't have to deal with them.

    If you have to be around the person every day, that sucks. You just have to establish boundaries in how you relate with the person. Know your non-negotiables and don't let the person cross them. By keeping a safe distance, you can prevent it from happening. Limit conversations and when you must, choose topics that aren't incendiary. When worse comes to worst, pretend you're asleep, if the situation allows you to.

      That's good advice. I think trying to stay as well away from them is the best approach. Plus if all else fails, pretend to be totally engrossed in work or rushing to get to another floor.
