I don't know why people feel awkward tbh. Not something I deal with.

If with strangers, I don't react. I pretend they don't exist.

If it's around people I [vaguely] know I'll probably make a funny face or say something incredibly stupid to change the mood.

But, knowing me, I don't understand how to read an atmosphere and will probably be the person to make it worse.

I am an awkward moment. Or at least I constantly feel like I am.

Serious answer. I don't know how to deal with awkward moments.

If people were more honest with themselves, everyone deals with it differently and some mask it better than others.

I rather make things purposely awkward to make awkward humor
Ex) Me: hey hey! How does a polar go to party?
You: What?
Me: to break the ice!
You: don't you mean how much does a polar bear weigh?
Me: is that how it goes?
You: *silence ensues and eventually walk away*
Me: wait! Come back!

If it is awkward due to a different reason, I'll tell a joke or state the level awkwardness to make it more awkward

Addressing the awkwardness actually sometimes helps reverse the awkwardness (usually)

Find solace that it's inevitable and almost everyone will be encounter an awkward moment from now and then. Very vague but you can gauge how to to approach the situation (be it third party, the person initiating the awkward moment or the person on the awkward moment receiving end) subjectively in your head first before acting. No worries though, people are so into their checking up on social media (guilty) and their phone that no one will probably notice.

Become silent and slowly walk out of sight.
