It's generally accepted that these moments are pretty awkward (whether the other person is attractive or not - just any time you pass someone else). Especially when you start out far away but can easily see each other. I personally usually just look to the side or down. I try to see if I can make eye contact for about half a second so that I can give a brief, polite smile, but usually that doesn't happen because the other person almost always makes sure never to look at me during the "passing" haha. What do you do? If you found the person attractive would you ever try to act on it?
For the poll, if you've ever done A, D or E, choose those options. Otherwise, choose B or C, depending on which one you do more often.
I (sometimes) bump into them on purpose to try and create an opportunity for introductions

I (sometimes) just straight out introduce myself (balls/ovaries of steel are required for this)
I'll stop and introduce myself if they meet my gaze at all...if they look away, I make a point of looking a woman up and down and check out her behind, just to show her for being such a snob...she of course, averted eyes or not, is totally aware of me looking her over!
i'm very shy, so I avoid eye contact and look the other way, especially if he's attractive to me.
I'm super shy so I pretend I don't take much notice in them, when I really do. And I don't really make eye contact either. I hate being shy :p
The spring semester of my senior year in high school there was this guy that I really liked and found attractive. and his 2nd period class was across the hall from my 2nd period class (and these were in the middle of the hall). coming from our 1st period classes we'd walk from opposite ends of the hallway towards the middle. and often we would start down the hallway relatively at the same time. almost everyday that semester it was an awkward "do I look at him? do I look straight down the hallway? maybe at my feet?" for about 30 seconds haha. we often locked eyes and it was weird but awesome at the same time haha.
I go up and talk to her. Girls are often more scared of guys than guys realize. It takes balls to talk to a girl, especially an attractive one. If she says "yes", it shows me that it was worth my time and effort. If she says "no" then I move on to the next girl. Girls love it when you know what you want and aren't afraid to try and take it.
I just look at them, make eye contact and just keep on walking. I currently don't have balls of steel, so I don't introduce myself. I generally do make eye contact a lot of the time with girls but I never make a conversation out of it or introduce myself. :\
