  1. I agree it's a day of reflection. May Allah give us sabr.
  2. وَعَلَيْكُم السَّلَام Theres no easy way to determine the "middle" way. I personally because of the upbringing I have had have struggled to determine what behaviour or actions constitute a "middle" way. My opinion is that in terms of School, Business and work context(s) we must to some degree be proactive in our interactions regardless of the gender of those we study or work with. But socially we need to maintain segregation to respectable degree that doesn't mean to ignore or as you put it refuse eye contact. We need to be respectful so a greeting isn't necessarily bad.
  3. عَلَيْكُمُ السَّلَام That is just the price you have to pay. Salafi, Wahhabi etc are that insecure in their beliefs.

But when dealing with members of the Ahlus Sunnah I tend not to bring up religion as many are my relatives, friends, neighbours, customers etc. I can't say I like their beliefs and their glorifying of certain historical figures but as people some of my best friends are Sunnis as are some of my best friends atheists. I can like the person but dislike their beliefs.
