  • You can also sit by his/her side and start talking normally. This helps forget the fight, you can find yourself in a wonderland of thoughts. Just remember to stay on topic. Most people don't like quick topic changes. If they talk about something that bothers you, then just try to think what topic is the closest to the topic you're talking about now. For example if you're talking about food and it bothers you, then you can just change the topic to for example drinks. Which is very close to foods.


  • If you're in a serious argument, break for 5 seconds, and then suddenly start singing, the person might get annoyed. Leave an acceptable time between the two.
  • Don't do something you like a lot. Your friend might not like this.
