Even those I am not well acquainted with tend to do this.
They always greet or small talk with me when I am alone.
But if they see me with another guy , they will not say "Hello". They will clearly notice me but act as if they do not see me.
Another scenario is,
Those who are clear that this other guy is my boyfriend (people that are my neighbors in this case),
Will make every effort to make eye contact with my guy when they say "hello". They don't acknowledge me much unless I am by myself.
They smile and greet me when I am alone.
But make eye contact with my guy to say "hello" when we are together , but do not say anything to me.
Most Helpful Guy
Men are threats to other men, physically, and men tend to be more unpredictable concerning anger and jealousy. Therefore, a man won't risk a potential conflict with another man by greeting his woman right in front of him without acknowledging the man first. It has nothing to do with the lady; we're assessing whether the guy with you is a threat to us. Most of the time, we'd rather not deal with any of that, so we prefer to talk to you when you're alone instead.5
