Awkward moments are made of these; when you meet someone you don’t want to meet. Avoidr is a web based app that can help you out of those jams.

We always talk of being social. The web has helped to propagate the ‘social movement’ with a bunch of social networking sites. On the web, you can easily avoid someone by ignoring their messages or deleting the contact info altogether. The real world is not so convenient.
The man behind the web application, Jesper Andersen’s Eureka moment did not come in a bathtub. But the idea for designing Avoidr came from the face-offs he saw between his friends and their exes.
"It was an emotionally resonant feeling — you don't actually want to go to this bar because your ex is there."

To avoid these very awkward moments, he thought of an application that will let you know where the friends you want to avoid are right now. Avoidr is based on Foursquare and you will need your Foursquare account to log-in and select the people in your friends list that you want to steer clear of.
According to Andersen, the site has taken off with around 20,000 people, and around 2,500 active users.
