    I feel popularity is a dying phase

    now days. I never really was popular in high school. Everybody knew me and liked me but that's because I just did my own thing and didn't trice for the attention of others. And I feel most people evolve to doing their own things in life when they start adventuring the world...

    I am most definitely not by any means popular.

    And after all the years of thinking I want to be. I don't think I would anymore. I'm happy with not having any friends it just leaves me with more time to read or draw or run or think or listen to music or play with beau.

    Sometimes I get sad that I don't have dozens of

    friends, but then I just have to remind myself that I don't need a lot of people. I'd much rather have a couple REAL friends than tons of fake ones.

    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...

    It's Never Been Something I've Desired

    Now don't get me wrong.  It's not like I'm unpopular.  I've generally always been well liked but I've never been part of the in crowd.  It's never really appealed to me.  In high school, I didn't have a clique.  I didn't really belong to any particular group.  I was just...

    When I was in fifth grade I made a decision

    that little did I know at the time affected the rest of my life. It was my first day transitioning into my new fifth grade class. Only one of the girls in my class had I known from playing at recess and vice versa. She had asked me to choose the seat by her which would've been...

    I am not a popular person

    since young. People don't like my face I think. I can hang with a popular and liked person beside me and still got ignored and hated. I just wanna say, not all friendly people are nice people, a not friendly person doesn't mean he is not kind.

    Not Popular, No Friends

    I do understand the feelings all of you have for I too also felt that way. It's not being popular and having ppl all over you or around you. It first starts being you. That is liking and loving who you are. Thinking positive of yourself. Looking at your great aspects...

    I Acually Don't Want to Be Popular.

    Popularity is overrated. I really have no idea why people want it so much. It's better to have lots of friends who like you than to have lots of friends who hate you and gossip about you and are only with you because of something superficial. I try very hard not to become a...

    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.

    I wonder what it's like to be popular,

    you know, how it feels to be tall, dark, drop dead gorgeous - in other words, the winner of a genetic lottery. I'd look in envy some times at the cool kids who made heads turn and who were simply amazing. I wonder what it's like to be able to admire yourself in the mirror or...

    The idea of having some sort of social "rank"

    in school sickens me. What makes a person, a girl, popular? Her "perfect hair", her massive group of "friends", her makeup, her brand named clothes, the way she can manipulate others into thinking she's popular? I don't get it. I don't mean to stereotype. I really don't. I also...

    Who would want to be?

    Keeping up with people is a bore, putting on a fake smile and pretending to be nice to everybody is disgusting. I'm too honest to be popular, I don't need people following me around and wanting to say hi even though I don't know who they are. Just leave me alone. I want friends...

    I think the whole thing is stupid.

    There are so many labels. Why can't we just take the labels off and learn to accept everyone whatever your background may be. I honestly don't mind not being popular. there is so many things wrong with that idea.
