Stand right in my face when they are talking to me!!!

Lmao, I mean really. I realize that many cultures are not taught about giving people their personal space, but come on! I was talking to this dude at work today and I felt like he was about to make out with me! Cant they just "feel" like it is too close to be chatting with someone, let alone someone they dont even know.........?

I just step back. And if they step forward I have no problem asking for a little personal space.

Step back, if they step forward ask for a little personal space.  I hate when people get in my bubble.  I can't STAND when people touch me when they speak to me.  I just flat out say dont touch me.

Change your body language. Don't stand straight up, lol that is supposed to mean your are inviting a person to your space. Keep one foot forward and cross your arms. I was told that in some class in college and tried it out. It actually worked for some people.

I like to look at the person I'm talking to. Eye contact. But not in your face

You don't have to be rude about it. You can just say I'm uncomfortable with you being so close to me. Or something like that.
