    Don't Feel The Need

    I've never belonged to any clique, in or out of school. I never saw any point in it. All they are good for is to separate and divide people into classes based on income or other such trivial crap. I had a small group of friends that I was close with, and because I had a lot of...

    NEVER!

    I can't stand cliques... it's too suffocating! And that's when I run away! XD I think that friendships are not cliques... just friendships. To me, a clique is a group of people who must think the same, act the same, and there is a ritual of who gets to join it or not. Erm...

    A Floater

    When I was in high school, there was a lot of cliques too.  I was always the loner, trying to fit in, so I floated.  I eventually got to know a few of the kids from each crowd, and then somehow we joined forces and floated together.  It's kind of strange how it...

    In High School

    I was not part of any groups. I got along with everyone, but there wasn't one particular group of people that I hung out with. The downside of this is that I didn't really go out and do anything. at all. ever. I played a lot of Starcraft though. And read a lot. And met the...

    Fitting This Square Peg In The Round Hole

    Throughout my middle and high school years, I stood on the outskirts. I observed these cliques sometimes in solitude or with one of my friends. I didn't hate them. I've had good relations growing up with these people. Although, I could never fit with them. A few times, I wandered...

    Is There Any Point to Cliques?

    I've never seen the point to belonging to cliques.  In Sixth Form (the last time that it ever mattered) I was the person who spoke to everyone, was friendly to all.  In my opinion, life's too short to be horrible to people and a lot of the problems that I've experienced...

    I'm Just An Onlooker.

    i used to always rebel and say i hated anything other girls in groups liked. oh sure i'd socialise with them, i'm actually great at talking and listening but i mostly look, watch how they act and react to certain things. they may all act the same like any clique but they sure do...
