BellyI cannot distinguish evade and avoid, anybody help?
You avoid something or somebody when you keep away from them. She was getting tired of him and tried to avoid him whenever possible.

You evade something when you manage to avoid dealing with it or accept it. He was never a person who evaded responsibility or duty.

'Evade' also means 'escape'. She managed to evade the police.

Hope the above helps.

He’s been avoiding me all week
He's been evading me all week
