Small talk with strangers that makes you cringe:
1 How much do you make? None of your business.
2 Politics. Skip. Next. This isn’t going to end well.
3 Diets. Especially at a wedding. Don’t make me feel bad about eating. I think you were assigned to a different table.
4 The stock market. Listen, I can talk circles around you about sports but the stock market isn’t going to get you a second date with me.
5 Sex life. Whoa, I don’t know you. If you are trying to impress me then you should leave.
6 How old am I? Old enough to kick your butt.
7 Gossiping about others in the room. You may want to take a look in the mirror before you talk about others.
8 Telling me about all of your past relationships on a first date. Wow! You have one more ex to add to your list. I can see why they leave you!
9 Someone droning on and on about ailments or bad relationships making you feel like you have to send out an SOS.
10 Talking with someone who wants to be the center of attention. Excuse me. You don’t need me to have a conversation. Enjoy!
