I can have a pretty decent conversation and then it take a huge left turn by me saying something awkward. The person kind of pauses, and if they’re cool, they’ll make a joke or play along. How do you prevent these moments? HOW DO NORMAL PEOPLE CONVERSE?
"Many people need desperately to receive this message: 'I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone.'" ― Kurt Vonnegut
Do you listen in on other peoples conversations? I guess I do cause Im often the quiet one. Theres a lot of awkward moments. And people always ask for advice on how to handle a conversation theyre going to have or that they had but they didnt feel good about. People just move past it because its a brief moment in a 24 hour day that no one will remember
Well, like others have said, everyone has awkward moments/conversations with people at least occasionally. Working on your social and conversational skills is good but you- and most everyone else- will never be absolutely "perfect" at it. Some of us may have many more awkward moments and conversations than most other people but there isn't anything that can totally prevent them from ever happening. Just learn to push past it and move on.
