So I have a friend on skype that keeps asking my to play video games, xbox, etc with him.

If I say "I don't feel like it" or anything like that he calls me and won't stop bugging me.

So is there a way to go offline (not block) to that user only?

    I'm fairly certain that blocking a user makes you simply appear offline to them. You wouldn't be able to talk to them while they're blocked, though.

Seems like the best way to go is to block the contact.

In this link that points to a thread in Skype Community you can find more information:


in your case, you can temporarily block the contact/s whom you don't want to see you online. Blocked contacts will not be able to see the status on the contact that blocked them. Then you can just unblock them anytime you wish to. They will receive no notification or whatsoever when you block them, so they will be clueless that you blocked/unblocked them.

If you need to block/unblock multiple contacts, you can also place those contacts under a contact category.
