  • Basically just kind of unfriendly, difficult to engage. It might not even be intentional, but just outwardly unfriendly behavior.

    Example:
    - "So, [insert name], what did you do last weekend?"
    - "Stuff."

    - "What kind of stuff?"
    - "You know, stuff."

    ... maybe while she's kind of crossing her arms and responding with a very apathetic tone of voice.

  • Being a snob and stand offish appears to be less friendly. It's like having resting bitch face and so forth.
