I don't like it when people are physically too close to me. When standing, this isn't a problem since I can move a little and distance myself from the person being too close to me. However, when sitting, moving can be harder or not possible.
It seems that, on average, I need more personal space than other people, so the situation where someone is too close to me happens a lot. I encounter this problem with strangers, coworkers and even my aunt.
So, is there any non-verbal clue that I could use to let another person know that they are sitting too close to me?
Currently, my main issue is with a coworker sitting too close to me but if there is a solution that would work for strangers and family too, that would be great.
Note: I feel like verbal communication wouldn't be a good option because verbal communication tends to be more confrontational and see as ruder than non-verbal one.
Notes and clarifications
With coworkers, they usually get too close when they are coming to me or my coworker's desk. We both have our own chairs and they are easily moved, but my computer isn't so easy to move on my desk (because there is a lot of stuff on my desk).
For my aunt, this happens when I'm sitting on a bench and she will sit really close to me, even when there is plenty of room on the bench.
