    I'm Not Hated Either

    I'm a quiet kind of girl. I don't socialize too much, I rarely put myself out there in the social arena. But I'm likable. Many even call me a plain jane. I don't wear makeup and I dress comfortably. I'm just me. nO glits, no glamour, I don't keep up with the latest trends, I don...

    I don't get why I feel

    so alone... I have no friends and no ones wants to talk to me.. Internet and school. I'm the quiet one, the shy one, but I can be talkative and I'm polite and easy-going. Until I get to know you..

    I just recently started talking to a guy that is my age and not really my type. He saw me at a concert and my friends at the show knew him and he applied all this effort into getting to know me and all that and seemed really into me for no apparent reason. Well, I finally let my...

    I'm Not Popular

    I don't know why the popular poeple I know, are "popular" I personally think they're losers- once you're popular, you start to showoff and think you're better than everyone and then put everyone down by becoming selfish and self obsorbed.. I think popularity is...

    I really am not popular

    and I honestly don't think I ever will be. The popular kids like me, but that doesn't mean that I'm actually popular. In my other experience, I wrote about how I pretend to be skinny in school. Last year, I didn't fake my look if I was skinny or not but this year I did, and I...

    SO Glad

    I am so glad that I am not popular. I've worked hard not to be. I see what it does to people.  I'd rather be myself, so I can relax.

    Glad To Say I'm Not

    I am glad to say I am not popular and I never have been. I never felt the need to act a certain way or show off, just to get others to notice me or make friends. I will always be myself. Nothing more and nothing less.

    Popularity

    I have many friends but I don't consider myself to be popular. Everyone can have friends but being popular is really dumb. To be popular you have to dress and look a certain way I like to be who I am.

    Hmm..

    I don't really want to be "popular", but I would like it more if people considered me worth hanging around. Maybe my shyness is off-putting to people? I don't know. I just know people very easily forget about me. That is, if they notice me at all.
