How do you avoid a conversation? As being an hearing impaired person,very hard to converse with this. I try to avoid any conversation that I am unable to participate in it. Do not care to do.I avoid a lot .Some are very hysterical or loud and soft. Then they are some are very boring,bragging,etc. This is mainly for I cannot hear what is going on. I am fine one on one.This also I avoid party of any sort. People do not want to repeat if you do not hear it. That is fine.If they do not.Then I stay away from them. How do you avoid a conversation?

Handy to not have to listen to boring or bragging lol I get away from all conversations period. I simply am not good with it and dont care for it. I am very quiet.

I think it depends on the conversation, if its prying into something that is none of their business I am beginning to ask why do you wanna know that? But if its an uncomfortable conversation I simply walk away.

Exactly @Perry.I can't start uncomfortable conversation. its not necessary being part of a conversation that is not worthwhile.

I avoid eye contact, if I don't acknowledge their existence they generally don't approach me.

I think those who have hearing impairment do avoid a lot of stress due to some conversations not being worth the effort to listen to. I avoid conversation by keeping busy and looking like I do not want to be disturbed.

We are both starting to have trouble hearing when we're in groups of people. It's not easy and can be very embarrassing. I think we'll get hearing aids once we get back to Australia.

How I try to avoid a conversation with someone I do not want to answer I try to ignore them. I was in the supermarket one day and was checking out with the clerk and someone wanted me to pay for something of theirs and I did not want to answer so I ignored her. The clerk had to get involved and I did not appreciate it so had to tell the person no. I did not like that clerk and the next time someone I like was there and went to him. My favorite clerk that went out of her way and was so helpful retired and I was not happy to go back there but I still do and hope that someone nice will be there.

I have the habit with my Mom to repeat, she does not hear well, I take the time to be sure she has understood what I said.

I won't participate in such conversations mostly. I am more of a quiet going person. And to my surprise people have problem even with this..(my calmness)

I usually ignore boring people who talk just to hear their voices. I have some great friends I love to talk too but others I just say I'm busy and walk away.

If I don't like the person talking, of course, I will have my excuse and if I don't like to have a conversation I would gladly say no to them.

This is a very good post my friend and also a good question. I just politely leave if I want to avoid any conversation my friend. And how are you doing today my friend?
