It’s not polite only to speak for yourself. You should listen to them too. When they speak, give your attention completely and show your interest by nodding in between so that they know they have your complete attention.

 

End It Nicely

Sometimes, it just so happens that the person is not so interested in talking or continuing the conversation. No need to worry. You should simply end the short meeting in a nice way. Share a little bit of information and take their email or maybe the business card and wave them goodbye.

 

Let People Interact With You

If you are too shy and always hiding in the corner then obviously people can’t reach you. So you will have to step out and let people approach you. It’s not always necessary for you to take the first step and interact with a new person. Sometimes, just be yourself and let people interact with you.

 

Don’t Take It Personally

Never take it personally if you ever face embarrassing situations or awkwardness. If the stranger is not responding to you nicely or trying to ignore you, just let it go. Maybe the person had a terribly hectic day or maybe he wants to leave early. But don’t take rejection too seriously. You can simply end the conversation and move over to someone who is more friendly.
