Well that's a little rude I think. I mean there are social "obligations". I mean when someone extends a handshake, you don't HAVE to shake it but....I think you can convey your disinterest in a cordial way (which isn't to say he won't get his feelings hurt or be disappointed) but just think how you would like to be treated if you approached someone you liked.
..I'm just saying, girls have it a lot easier. Guys are always the ones who have to initiate contact with the girl.
...There's also the fact that girls have to put up with this 'initiated contact,' even if we don't want it, which for some of us, is gosh darn terrifying!
^^Approaching someone can also be terrifying. Plus on average who can LEAST get away with showing no confidence, the approacher or the approachee?
Not to beat a dead horse, but being approached by the opposite sex is a nice problem to have. OK so I beat a dead horse.
You would honestly prefer NO approaches? I get that it's scary, but hey you can have it both ways. Be the approached or approach someone. You must be very attractive to be approached so often. You should look on the bright side and think how great that is.
Some people don't have that option.
As far as what to say or do, pick a line or two that you feel comfortable with like "so where are you from?" or "come here often?" (kidding), but I bet asking the guy's name is a good way to show interest. Don't forget to tell them your name if interested. If not interested, yeah, like ayven said, mention a boyfriend or husband or something. (That won't work 100% of the time though just FYI)
In which case a baseball bat would help.
