    Yes I Do.

    They're pretty pointless. In my school there weren't any cliques really. But if I had to pick like a stereotype/clique I'd be put into in middle/high school... Would differ from scene, stoners, punk, cool kids. Haha, it's weird but it's true!

    Never Going Back

       At the beginning of last year, I was popular. At first, I was the kind of girl who was nice to everyone, until popularity got the best of me. I was so excited. All of my close friends were in my classes. I knew it would be a great year. There were three girls named...

    Anti Cliques

    hmmmm cliques are more for women, but you do get the male cliques, usually the popular football guys or whatever......I believe in individualism.......when I was in school I was in a group, the "unpopular group" or rather castouts, and I liked cause we stood for everything that...

    Cliques Are Like Packs Of Wild Animals

                    When I think of cliques, I think of those snotty popular girls who pick on everyone who isn’t like them. We all know who they are. They wear the hottest designer clothes and always...

    I Don't Belong to Any.

    Never have, never will.  In high school I was surrounded by them, but I was one of the few who didn't belong to one.  I had friends in every group. I am still like that now, I don't care who wants to be friends with me...

    I'm An Individual.

    I hate anything that doesn't allow you to become an individual all cliques do is act like you got to be like them. that's bullshit. I'm not changing to please you. you either like me the way Iam or you don't like me at all. I don't follow your rules.

    Ganging Up

    I hate cliques because I was a victim of bullying at work, of the 'mobbing' kind.  Even my so-called 'friends' ganged up on me.  When people get into a clique they seem to lose a mind of their own and just become a sheep, owning the opinions of others.  I refuse to...

    No Matter How Different We May Seem

    The populars, the jocks, the preps, the goths, and the weirdos. These are some of the many cliques you may be defined into, but really, I think you are really all of them. Have you ever had a day where you were swarmed by a million hellos, or a day that passed without more than 1...

    Don't Fit In Anywhere...never Did...

    I have always been an "outsider"...never adapting to fit in anywhere...and consequently have had only a few friends who really got to know me...especially since I have my own set of "special interests" (which I have revealed here on EP)...and have been afraid to reveal them to...

    Just Wish People Didn't Shove Their Cliques In My Face.

    Some people seem to get a real kick out of cliques. That's how they seem to affirm themselves, feel happy with who they are, or have fun. Who I am I to object? I don't. I just wish people could enjoy their little social circles without always having to remind everyone else...

    Plenty Of These At Work....

    It's funny, you think cliques only exist in school but when you go onto work, you see they still exist and are usually worse then ever. I really dislike some of the cliques at work. They don't work hard at their jobs and blame the guy who has become the scapegoat of the company...

    Never Fit Into Any

    I never fit into any cliques when I was in school. I was in the lower caste. Hand-me-down clothing, reduced lunches, never any name brand clothing.....you get the picture. The following story happened when Iwas in college...... I went to school with a very snobby girl. I...

    Bitchy

    I'm not above infiltrating your clique and disbanding it from within. *evil laugh*

    Not For Me.

    I'd rather be independent and objective than be a part of some clique where you had to conform to the rules of a group. I'd hate to be one of those Stepford Wives.

    Proud Oddball!

    In high school I despised cliques. I wore any brand of clothing I wanted, dyed my hair a dozen different colors, styled it differently, listened to my own music and spoke the way I wanted. I was proud of being an individual and I still am to this day. I always try to be true to...

    This world sees groups of people.

    Whether it's religious groups, social class or even gender. I believe that there is no such thing as an easily defined person, just an ignorant mind that believes so. For example, a "nerd" is not simply just a "nerd". But a complex intellectual that lives and breathes just like...
