I have friends who will engage conversations with me about topics that either I know nothing about or that I just don't care for.
My closest group of friends (which include around 6 people whom I talk to very often) talk about superhero movies and shows. They constantly ask me if I watched a certain movie or am caught up on a particular show?
I only like a select few shows and movies, but I don't care for the rest - and always feel lost when they all talk about the latest episode of a popular show. During moments like these, I feel out of the loop.
I always end up staying silent when my friends go off in that tangent. My question is, how should I handle myself in these situations - and how can I prevent future situations like these?
