I agree with BG, I would want to be left alone.

This woman at the gym started talking to me once about why people take their mobiles into the gym. So I gave her some possible reasons, and she went on and on, then started telling me about how friendly she is and likes chatting to people. I wish I could have told her that I am not friendly and want to be left alone, she didn't seem to be getting hints from my body language.

Sometimes a full on conversation can be too much, especially if i'm in an anti-social mood or i'm in a rush.
To be honest, just a nice smile from someone can make a huge difference. You don't need to use words. x
