Hi everyone, Do all these sentences mean the same?
Here is the context- A girl and a boy are in a relationship.The girl is very angry with the boy because he went to Paris without her knowledge and did not contact her for a long time.
Now she tells him the following thing.
1) I don't want to see you around / around me.
2) Don't move around me.
3) Don't show up in front of me.
To my mind 1 and 2 work better in this context.
Thanks a lot.

    Only the first part of 1) makes sense: I don't want to see you (around). (The 'around' is not really necessary)

    The rest don't make sense in this context – and are not very likely in ANY context (although one can always invent a strange context where they might work).
