What do you do when you have awkward silences? Like I am so bad at handeling these situations, where you're like out of topics and you don't know what to talk about, so there is a awkward silence. I always go to school with this one girl and we always have lots of awkward silences. Sometimes I try to come up with a topic and then she just answers with a solid 'yes' or 'no'. Then I think she just doesn't want to talk right now, so I stop trying to start conversation. And then she ends up starting a conversation again. It is very confusing. I also have this sometimes with other friends (not this much tho). But I just hate it when we're silent for ten minutes or so. It is just hard to come up with a topic when there is an awkward silence. And maybe I'm just the one who thinks it's awkward?
Do you also have awkward silences, is it normal to have them very often? I don't want to destroy our friendship just because I can't seem to start a conversation T^T
