I crossed the street to avoid meeting him, but he saw me and came running towards me.
Ithink seeing is the correct answer ...isnt it?
Yes, it is. One simply cannot "avoid to see" somebody.Originally Posted by red rose

First I thought that it's "avoid seeing her". Then I checked in the dictionary and found out that I was right. Great! My English is not that bad at all.Originally Posted by MikeNewYork

I do avoid using infinitive after the verb "avoid" :D
