You're not really being as truthful as you seem to think. Part of the
definition of a lie is "something meant to deceive or give a wrong
impression". Regardless of whether or not what you are saying is
literally true, looking away from someone and saying you don't see
them is by your own admission something you are doing to give a wrong
impression and so it's a lie just the same.
