We have always been invited to dinner sometimes in our lifetime. These times could be at weddings, parties, or regular house meals. But we accidentally have some embarrassing moments, especially while having a meal. We don’t get prepared for what we would be eating or whom we might meet at these times.
We always hear stories about those embarrassing moments at the dinner table. But I’ll tell you some tips could help you to avoid those moments in the future.
In the beginning, when you find yourself in this situation at a dinner and nobody speaks at all as no one knows how to start a conversation with each other. You can start talking about anything you have done on this day such as a regular activity you mostly do. Doing this, you’d have broken the ice to start a conversation.
When something bothers you, excuse yourself and go to the bathroom to have some time for yourself to come back normal again and finish your meal free of attention. You can also say kind words about the food and the people who prepared it to feel normal with the other persons especially if they were elders or complete strangers.
You should also try to discuss if you found someone has the same interest as you are or try to speak about something you know some information about which would interest the other person on the table.
If you found someone around your age, try to talk to him about anything in common such as the latest news or fashion and even TV programs he might be watching. You can also bring your phone and share or send things that might interest him.
In the end, when you got in these situations, try to avoid any embarrassing moment especially silence on the table. Start a speech, say a compliment about the food and even tell a joke that would please the others and lighten the atmosphere. I hope the article was useful to you.
