We’ve all been in this situation before, right? At a social event, work function or dinner party, where someone's talking to you, but you've lost all interest in what they're saying. The other person just keeps talking and now you're wondering how you can get away without coming off as rude. Perhaps you just had a really interesting and fruitful discussion with someone, but you've heard enough and would like to move on. How do you wrap things up without offending the other person? We've talked in the past about how to be a better conversationalist, but what about when you want to end a conversation? That's a valuable skill as well. After all, you don't have unlimited time, so knowing how to gracefully bow out of a conversation is a classy move. A real gentleman understands that the way you end a chat is just as important as how you start it. Consider this your escape plan.
