  • Talk about yourself if they aren't talking to keep the conversation going or talk about the news or talk about your last vacation - anything you know you can talk about for a long time. Today a lady came to my house and she was very quite so I kept talking to keep the conversation going.

  • Fill them or talk myself into thinking they're not awkward at all. It's hard being an extrovert, yo.

  • I sit there and watch everyone else. Silence doesn't really bother me since I'm usually just listening to everyone talk anyways
