Re: What do you say when you don't know what to say

repeat what they said as a question. and i'm very good at adding subtle undertones of arrogant sarcasm, if i deem it necessary.
also:
"depends..." is an all-time-favorite.
or, if i think "this is going nowhere", i just change the topic. if i want to piss off the other person, the new topic is extremely far away from theirs, preferably hinting at criticism (you can make people feel very insecure about their attitudes if you start talking about genocide out of the blue).

somehow it doesn't sound so good to put that back to you as a question (or maybe my command of the english language is not sufficient, or maybe i just lost all of my arrogant sarcasm).

hmmm, here's another thing i tend to resort to a lot when i don't know what to say: self-criticism and overly complex grammar.

(and, also, creating more and more sub-clauses, buts, ifs, commas, maybes, on-the-other-hands and [preferably nested] brackets.)

maybe i should add the obligatory emoticon here :notreallyserious:

Re: What do you say when you don't know what to say

Don't take conversation too seriously. One problem I've noticed autistic/nerdy types do is hang on to topics, rather than follow the natural meandering flow of a conversation.

Ask people about themselves, about anything. Just keep it going. Follow and/or lead according to how you feel and pay attention to the other person and how he/she is reacting. It's no big deal, really. Sometimes people just don't want to talk. Don't push it.

@damo: yes, very nested!

That's more like it is than it was before, isn't it?
