I find asking questions in conversations with strangers helps to move the chat along a bit and clarify things too.
If you know that you will be in a situation where you will be talking to strangers, try to plan at least three open-ended “go-to” questions (that start with “how” or “what”) that you can use if you get into an awkward conversation.
Don’t struggle too hard with these either. Something simple like, “So, what’s keeping you busy these days?” will work.
Just be careful not to ask too many questions in a row, or you may come across like Jessica Flecther in murder she wrote.
