How do you guys deal with getting out of awkward situations?

lately I've found my self in some real awkward situations with some friends lately... making up with old mates I turned my back on a few months back.. the awkward silence after saying I'd like to be mates again... how do you guys get out of that without making things worse?

I've also found my self in some awkward situations with girls too. girls I'd like to be friends with. but nothing else. then trying to explain or give the idea that's all I want to be without hurting them or being rude.

How do you guys deal with this?
any tips!?

cause I'm seriously failing.. record was 3 minutes silence between me and a friend as everyone else also went quiet around us.. some bell rang and it practically saved my day ...life >_>

discuss!

3minutes of utter silence?? ouch!

I best deal with it by putting on a fake smile, pretend everything is alrite. DOnt bring up matters of the past.

Start by asking them what they've been up to lately. Emphasise is on getting them to talk and you just listen and add in parts that are relevant to the topic of discussion. If the convo dies i'd just bolt and get outa there!

Why are you scared of heights?
Many people are scared of heights.
It's not the height that bothers me. It's the impact that terrifies me.

dude, if you cant hold a conversation with your "friends" then you pretty much fail.

With girls...just dont be a loser. The worst thing is to sit there and say nothing. dont try and be too funny or you will just look like a retard. Its a mix of general chit-chat (while getting information...) ask stuff that makes you seem interested in them and be funny at the same time.

Anyway back to friends..... time with friends should be all about laughs and fun. If thats not happening then you have shit friends/are a shit friend.

If EA was a parent, social services would have arrested it.

To escape an awkward situation, I whip out my PC and show 'em how hard I can pwn noobs in BF2142. That usually shuts them up and makes them respect me instantly.

Yes, I carry my PC in my pocket... and yes, I own a car.

I make fun of the awkwardness of the situation, if I happen to be in a situation like that. However, my friends and I have alot in common, so I never really need something to talk about, cause we can just talk about Pure Pwnage, and all the noobs on the forums making stupid posts. Or we boot up the ol Wii and pwn shit up. (its the ol' wii after 2 days)

Yeah, we don't have a ton of awkward situations that can't be resolved by Wii Sports.

well my friends mum asks awkward questions, and puts me and my other friends in awkward situations.
Well her son/ my friend is well fat, lol, and every time i or one of us goes round she asks stuff like- "Do you like to bully my son".

She also thinks you dislike her food when you cant eat anymore.

Alot more i'd go on but i cant be bothered, and she's to awkward to deserve it lol.

I cock my leg up and fart REALLY loud, then I do a big fake laugh and slap everyone on the shoulder and shout "WASNT THAT SOOO FUCKING FUNNY!?"


Nah but seriously, whenever I'm in an awkward situation, I just stare at the ground.
If quizzez are quizzical then what are tests?

Awkward?, hmm well when the girl I like starts playing around with my feelings, and starts cybering me in the MIDDLE OF IRONFORGE... I took her to the secret place in Stormwind to do that icon_wink.gif

anyway, pretty much all my awkward situations revolve around her, she know's I really like her, and she dosn't hesitite torturing me over it, today I am just planning to ask her if she feels the same about me if I do her.... that will put her in my shoes >:D

i usually end up saying somthing like "so......." and then repeat somthing i said earlier, like "what games did you say you had again?" which kind of gives you some time to think of somthing to talk about while they tell you what games they have (again). Although you should note that this also gives the impression that you arent interested in the convo because you didnt listen first time 'round.

I show them how awesome my Pokemon cards are, they're so scared of my Charizard that they just have to laugh at my bad jokes.

But seriously? There are usually situations between me and a couple mates where one of us (admitedly me a lot of the time) says something and fails to pull off the funny-factor. If there's a silence, we just stare each other down, and in turn staring at something for a long time eventually becomes funny.

And with that, we sort of just chuckle it off and continue with what we were initially talking about. If that sort of thing doesn't work you could just do the old "... Yeah.. I'll just... be... over... uh... here..." *turns around and does something*.
