We're all guilty of being the one who causes an awkward lull in conversation at a group gathering. Maybe you just don't know your audience, or maybe what you just said was inappropriate. But it's time to stop with the social faux pas. Hey, not everyone's going to be your bestie, but sometimes it's nice to have a fun conversation with people you wouldn't necessarily talk to. However, these are the topics you should always avoid when you're trying to make friends.
