Gossip magazines are for the dullest people on earth. Gossipers are not worth a second of your time.
Why? Because you are far more interesting than that.
You really don’t care that Justin Bieber smoked a bong. You’re bored hearing about Kardashians being morons. You aren’t stupid enough to enjoy petty updates about Kanye West.
Some people fall into the gossip mag traps. They strive to entertain their brain but are too lazy & uninspired to do it properly.
It’s like drinking from a poisonous trickle, when you could instead be gulping from a bountiful waterfall.
Others try to spice up their conversations by gossiping about your common friends. They gossip about you too.
They need to have a real conversation instead.
You can talk without needing something to gossip about. It’s just a matter of putting a little effort into your conversations, and being real with each other.
The effort isn’t hard at all when you use Awkward Silence’s weekly conversation starters.
Complaining people are boring. If you need to get things off your chest, apply some strategy to it.
It’s no secret that people hate confrontation. But it’s odd how people even avoid good confrontations. When is social media actually the anti-social method?
There are few things more dreaded than a mother-in-law. For the sake of you & your partner, how can you get along?
Why is it important to talk to your pets when they can't answer back?
Deep conversations are extremely rewarding but people are reluctant to ask the big questions to get there. Why?
Your opinion matters, but how badly do you need to argue for it? Awkward Silence are encouraging you to be self-aware next time a discussion gets heated.
A few seconds of silence is not a disaster. If you keep your head, it’s not even a cause for concern. It might even be considered an opportunity.
There is a conversation faux-pas that seems obvious to most, oblivious to others. And as we at Awkward Silence chat to people about conversation, we hear many people complain about it again & again.
