If you are about to get into a street fight with someone who is looking for a confrontation there are steps you can take to calm the situation down and stop the street fight from occurring. This article will guide you on the steps to take in order to talk your way out of a street fight.
Things You Will Need
A calm temper and the ability to reason with someone who is acting aggressively towards you.
The first step to talking your way out of a street fight is to use a calm tone of voice. When you use a calm voice this creates a calming effect, as opposed using a loud voice which can make an aggressive person even angrier.
The second step is to keep a safe distance between you and the person confronting you. Try and stay at least 5 feet from them so that they do not need to worry about you suddenly trying to hit or attack them in a street fight. When someone knows you are not going to try and hit them this has a calming effect because they can let their guard down.
The third step to talking your way out of a street fight is to tell the person confronting you that you do not want a confrontation and have no interest in fighting them. Once you let someone know that you have no interest in a street fight that usually calms the situation down quickly because then the person confronting you doesn't have to worry about impressing people or "acting tough" because you were the one who said you didn't want to fight.
