The topics to avoid in a conversation
When talking to someone, either online or face to face one golden rule is that certain topics do not enter the conversation, these are
- Religion (what their religion is, what your religion is, and your opinion to theirs etc as this could start a fight and end terribly with consequences you don't even want to know about, Remember no one will win this fight.
- Politics ( what some ones political views are and what your own are) completely AVOID this topic as it can lead to problems, your words could be twisted and you may sound malicious when meaning to sound nice, and then a whole load of other problems emerge with devastating consequences. (the main one is Arrest for racial bigotry)
- Gender (what some ones sexual orientation is or your own) Under no circumstances do you bring this up as it can be taken as racism if you offend some one be it intentional or unintentional and can start a massive row and to be honest you should not be talking about it anyways because that is your own affair and should not be open to discussion unless you want it to be? But I would avoid it, because you will be challenged by the other person, if they do not agree with you.
- Money (your own wealth and the others wealth) try to avoid this topic in a conversation if you can as the other person could feel intimidated by your intentional or unintentional flaunting of your wealth in their face, because they may not be interested in what you have and are only interested in who you are, remember not everyone is fortunate to have a lot of money in this day and age and it can really hurt some one emotionally as they will feel really small in comparison to you or vice versa.
So really its common sense to avoid these topics I have raised to you above as you now see what may happen in this situation. No doubt you may think of other situations to avoid but these are the main ones.
