    get rid of/get around

    I don't know how to get rid of him.

    I don't know how to get around him.[I can understand it as, "I don't know how to avoid him"]

    What is the difference in meaning between these sentences?

    Re: get rid of/get around

    I don't know how to get rid of him >> for instance: He is talking without stopping and I don't know how to make him stop and go away so that I am rid of him

    I don't know how to get around him >> I want to do something; "he" is preventing me for this; I cannot find a way to avoid this or persuade him that I am right.
