conversation. That way, when you do walk away, you’re not leaving someone standing alone. The best way is to introduce someone who has something in common with your friend: a job, a love for books, a hatred of traffic

a shift in pace and time your getaway. Body language is useful here. Once someone looks away or finishes laughing at a joke, you have the opportunity.
Step Three – Say you have to go
Leave a good impression by saying something positive like, “It was nice to meet you” or “It was nice to catch up”. This has the double advantage of subtly signalling that you won’t be popping back for more chat.
