  • Unless I'm actually in a rush to go somewhere, I'm the type to always steer to a conversation to something I know we'd both like before I leave the conversation. It's easy to change the subject. Just make a rabbit trail that leads into the thing you wanna talk about. Even if you have to say, "Hey, I know this is random but ______."

    If they are a reasonable person they will acknowledge that you wanna talk about something else and won't hold it against you.

    If you want to end it without starting another convo and not come across as rude then just say something along the lines of, "Hey, I'd love to talk to you more but I gotta go do ______."

    If they're a person you can be real to then just tell them how it is. Tell them that you don't like talking about the current topic and that you should switch to something else. Better them know for future references. Maybe they won't bring it up as often after that.

  • Start talking about something else or if you’re not in the mode to talk then make a reason to excuse yourself

  • I say I have to go do something, and I'll talk to them later.

    Or if it's a phone call, tell them someone else is calling in (mom, dad, boss... someone you can't ignore) and I need to answer it. If it's my cellphone, I tell them my battery is dying and I need to go

  • I don't. I believe in respect. If I find the conversation boring, that's my problem and it shows that I am being rude. When its time to leave I would just make sure to not talk or avoid that person for good.

  • "Gotta go..."
    "hey... a squirrel!!"
    Roll your eyes.
    Take a deep breath.
    Get up and walk away.
    Tell them to STFU

    Seriously, I feel for ya dude. The women your age have this uncanny idea that every little feeling or thought that comes into their little brain should be verbalized. Dear god. And if you question it AT ALL they'll tell you it's 'their right', as in a first amendment right. Sure honey.

  • set your phone on a timer with the ringer on, the same ringer as your phone ringtone. Then excuse yourself to answer the call when the timer is up!

  • Bully conversation tactic. Force a conversation hard left. I usually say something ridiculous, and become animated. The distraction guides the conversation into something more interesting

  • I'm sorry, but I've got to return a call.
    I'm sorry but I need to grab this person before they leave.
    Or whatever else is fitting given the situation.

  • Lol all the majority of these responses bar a couple tell me only one thing - that people have no communicative skills...

    The simple practicalities of having to end a conversation are one thing, that's normal, but I also think that most people are spineless down to the core.

    People hide behind these false nicities and little polite nuances, using them to flee a conversation (aka dealing with someone they either don't like, can't handle, or aren't in the mood for), rather than simply being straight down the line and sincere.

    I've always been highly attuned to the pathetic falsities of most human behaviour, and its decrepit weakness and false, conceited bullshit just makes me cringe.

    If I don't like someone, I'll tell them. If I do like someone and simply cannot carry on the conversation at hand, it's really no big deal...

  • I’d try to change the topic first. If it doesn’t work, I would start playing with my phone because where I’m gonna go after I leave that person? Still better than rotting at home. At least I can train my patience.
