If someone is following me I tend to honk my horn to show that I'm not a complete psychopath and while on foot I will salute

I try to be friendly :)
 
doesn't work always,but I did meet few interesting people that way in this violent GTA world ;)

Same here. Any chance I can I offer friendliness, whether it be driving people around or fighting police with them. If it fails I just drive off.

If they have a mic and let their peaceful intentions known then I will give them the benefit of the doubt.  But no mic = no mercy.  I have been burned too many times before to trust random people running up to me uninvited.

Depends on my mood, really. Most often I'm friendly, especially with lower level players, but every now and then I use my AP Pistol as a personal greeter.

Do not follow me. I've been tagged AWEC (Approach With Extreme Caution).

 

I've lost all trust for Randy the Random. White dots become black X's.

 

I blame all of the white dots, who have killed or tried to kill me, for my horrible social behavior in GTA: Online.

I'm friendly, but also completely paranoid.

I'd start driving off quickly the moment someone is about 4 blocks from me.

As often as I've been killed undoing my own business I'm pointing a firearm at you to say the least.

If I am in my Entity, I back up to them, and honk, and if they try to get in, i let them, but if they shoot, i kill them and drive off into the sunset! :D lol

If interested in greeting another player I will typically roll up to their flank and honk my clown horn, while off radar.  It's a great technique for making new friends!

Mostly.. if i see someone following me i assume there going to murder me(has almost alwas been the case) so.. i drive faster .

If i see them in foot, I assume they're going to shoot me -if passive mode is off-

if someones running toward my car o.O i slowly start to move the car.

I always assume people are going to attack me..because this so far has been my experience. ... during a mission i was going to give a ride to a teamate, an they tried to steal my car!.

 

>.< so..yeah..but I usually hesitate to kill someone i might shoot at them.. an the ndrive off but more of a warning then an attempt to kill-though my lucks horrible so i usualyl miss alot o.O.

I've been there... on that live and let live sh*t. You'll move past this mindset, if you keep playing, sooner or later. ;)

Depends, if they're on foot I'll drive past them on my Akuma and honk to see if they will shoot at me

 

or if the other way around wait for them to honk if they don't honk I'll consider them hostile and will fire warning shots

Earlier today, i was driving about the city with a bounty on me and a Vinewood tour bus with 4 people pulled up beside me. Wasn't sure if they were inviting me on the bus or about to attack me for the bounty. Was about to get on the bus when one of them took a few shots at me, so they met the business end of my grenade launcher.

 

Suffice to say i received a few angry messages after lol

I used to be friendly but don't take the risk any more. If you are not in my crew and you come near me in your car or on foot holding a weapon I will fire first. 

 

Its worth noting that playing as a scantly clad female avatar does attract a lot of teen piss-ants who assume you are a female gamer and they want to hang out with you! Auto shotty to the face teaches them a valuable lesson.

It all depends on if they're hostile or not. Depends on the situation, if its someone I notice thats been killing people randomly or has been shooting at me then I engage but I always take safety precautions. I look for signs of engagement such as throwing stickies from the car or shooting. If I go to offer someone a ride I make sure im in a position to make a getaway and give them a small window if fire just incase they try to shoot me. Such as if you own a Entity always pick someone up with the rear facing towards them, chances are if they're looking to kill you they will shoot first before they try to sticky. If they start firing then you know to leave. If someone is chasing me in a car then i move around and dodge around and see if they try to throw a sticky or fire at me if not then i know its safe to ride with them. 

 

If someone is running up to your car without pointing any sort of weapon that usually means they're friendly, it takes time to pull out a weapon but i always watch their hands to see if they have weapons already out or not. If they're already aiming at me coming up to my car I leave or kill them.

Waitin' to rob you, waitin' to beat you,
A bullet in ya head is how I'll greet you...

Nice bars
But why would someone beat a person that has been shot in the head.

If someones follow me I just go faster and try avoiding them until they are proven hostile.

 

If someone comes to me on foot unarmed I will stay friendly until they are proven hostile.

 

If someone comes to my car with a weapon I shoot. There is nothing more annoying than an idiot shooting you in the head while you jsut wanted to offer a ride so now I don't take anymore risk with that.

If I'm being followed while driving, I make two lefts. If they do the same, I put some distance between us, find a good spot to pull in, get out and show them how effective the RPG is.

 

If someone approaches on foot, I aim at them before they have time to aim at me.

 

If a player runs toward my car, I assume it's to hit it with a sticky bomb. So, I kill them.
