Do you hate leaving the house, because you never know what to say when you get stuck in a conversation with another human being?

Well, with a little work, that can change.

Socializing with others, whether it's a cashier or your crush, isn't as difficult as it seems.

Here are a few ways to feel less awkward in social situations:

1. Prepare Beforehand

If you're worried about a teacher calling on you in a certain class, study the class material so that you'll have the right answer.

If you're worried about looking like a loser at a party, think of some topics to bring up before you head out the door.

If there's nothing interesting going on in your life to talk about, look at some news or tabloid websites to see what the latest stories are.

2. Dress to Impress

The better you dress, the better you'll feel.

Why?

Because you're going to have much more confidence.3

If you're dressed in stained clothes, you'll be self-conscious when talking to people, because you'll be wondering if they're judging you.

So if you wear something that makes you feel great about yourself, you'll have one less thing to stress about.

3. Always Ask Questions

Being the only silent one in a group can make you feel awkward.

If that's the case, you need to find a way to speak up.

If you don't have anything interesting to add to the conversation, you can always join in by asking questions.

People love to talk about themselves, so it's always a good method to use.

4. Use Your Cell as a Crutch

When all else fails, your phone will be there for you.

If you're sitting alone at a party, you should get up and mingle.

But until you get the confidence to do so, text on your phone so that you feel more comfortable.

Just don't spend the whole night on that cell.

Eventually, you want to gather the courage to actually socialize.
