Smile Another survey - great responses last time, thanks all!! - February 12th 2016, 04:54 PM

Hi everyone,

The last survey was really helpful.

Please answer the question below, being as honest as possible:

What would you think if you were having a conversation in a group and a friend said and then looked embarrassed? Would you do anything in response?

Thank you!!

I would probably think that the information she revealed was hard for her to talk about. I wouldn't think anything negative of her for appearing embarrassed, because I have trouble communicating sometimes. I wouldn't do anything in front of a big group, other than try to make eye contact and give her an encouraging nod or a smile to try to make her feel more at ease. I'd consider talking to her alone to see if she needed support with anything.

I would have thought she feared she volunteered too much information or said something that sounded "stupid." I know I have those fears sometimes when I talk in groups of people. I wouldn't do anything in front of the group except smile at her to let her know that it's okay. I might talk to her away from the other group members to tell her I noticed she looked embarrassed back there and ask her about it. If she says she was I would let her know there was nothing to be embarrassed about to put her at ease.

Agree with them in some way. Give them some positive reinforcement.

Just be supportive, don't point out the fact they're embarassed and try to pull it out of them like a nosy gossip. They clearly said something and are trying to reach out, but they don't want to talk about it because it's embarrassing in their mind for whatever reason. Be supportive and the friend they need.

If a friend looked embarrassed then I would probably try to move the conversation on and speak to them privately and ask what about the conversation made them feel uncomfortable and do whatever I could do to support them and be there if they needed me.

I can't always tell when someone looks embarrassed unless they're really obvious about it, so I would probably keep talking with the same topic unless the friend stopped me. If the friend looked really obviously embarrassed I would probably change the topic and talk about something else although I would probably message on facebook or something later to see if they were ok.
