    My school only really had a 'popular' group of girls. The lads kind of mixed with each other. But I was friends with most 'types', so can't really pigeonhole myself into one.

    In your year or school?
    Year.
    But it opened in September 2005, when I started year 8, and in that first year of opening it was only us and the Year 7s so all of my year are pretty chummy with the year below, too, which is about 150 in all.

    To be honest i was a bit of a bully most of the time, i was captain of the football and rugby team and when i was sent out of lessons i would just go down to p.e, i wouldnt say i was hugely loved by everyone but i had a lot of people at least pretendin to like me
    Surprisingly (for TSR) and slightly admirably honest.

    Me and my best mate just laugh at the "popular" kids really, they all hate each other and then act nice to their faces, its pointless.

    Me and my group of friends were in the middle - never really popular but never unpopular. We kind of mingled with the 'kinda popular group' (the ones who got on with everyone and who were also really nice unlike some of the really popular lot) and got invited to their parties and stuff. I also spoke to some of the people who were classed as the 'geeks' so I basically just spoke to most people. Secondary school was so damn confusing with all the little groups!

    No, never popular - unless you count the first week of Primary School where I was new and everybody wanted me to join their group. By secondary school, (it was an all-girls school) I was an outsider - which I didn't mind because I had a small group of close friends. In my secondary school, there were two groups of 'popular' - the stuck-up b***chy kind who intimidated other people and regularly discussed their 'sexual' experiences (most of them got pregnant or dropped out). The other popular group were the girls who were superlative in everything - looks, brightness, etc. They were nice/friendly to you if you were in their group and if you weren't, then you didn't particularly exist or matter. A couple of them thought everyone was in love with them. :awesome:

    Long story short, I was the weird girl who didn't fit particularly anywhere. Ah, such sweet memories... not.

    I know that I wasn't in the 'popular crowd' because I had true friends.

    I was mostly in the middle, but I got along with most people. To be popular in the high school that I went to you had to smoke, drink practically every night and be as fake as possible :p:

    Were you one? Why? Why not?

    Were you almost but not quite or - Bit outside the 'popular' group but you still had your normal, stable group of friends or did you fit in one of the generic stereotypes - loner, goth, Rap / ghetto kid, preppy, naive, innocent, geek, Chav, bully, The kid that had everything in his pockets, the rich kid, The kid that lied all the time etc
    Me and my best friends are the three most intelligent ones in my class and I'd say we're the most popular - the 'nerds' for a change! lol! Though I cross a hell of a lot of stereotypes! I'm the 'preppy, naive, innocent, geeky, bully, goth, punk, emo, rocker, rich kid who's also feminine!' lol!
    And one of my friends is the 'funny, dirty-comedienne geek' and the other is the 'sensitive, fashion-orientated, yet religious and takes everything to heart geek!'

    my schools wierd, you fall into your own social groups.
    Alll the cool people are really clever and all the wierd ones are averageish clever.
    Me, i was funny but nobody actually liked me for my first two weeks after i joined after 13+
    But then i started making jokes about people and doing quite rebellious things and became in with the cool people.

    However when the cool people do something, everyone else does it, like smoking, all the wierdos started after we started, but if you want to be popular, my advise is:

    You either have to be funny and able to crack a fair few jokes, good at sports or have an external social link with someonefrom the group e.g know a fit girl they know.

    I definitely wasn't popular, but I think I was 'cool'.


    I was 'hard', I drank lots, I was intelligent, I got laid. I got on with pretty much everyone despite being one of, or the only, BLACK/DEATH METHULZ person.

    School was kinda good, if an entire waste of time.

    I was most definitely not popular. I was right at the bottom of the food chain in my school. It sucked so much! But I but my big girl panties on and got on with it because l.i.f.e.g.o.e.s.o.n. (can't believe I just quoted Noah and the Whale on TSR, but it seemed appropriate :p:)
    Now I'm at uni I've had a fresh start, I've learned to be more confident in myself and low and behold, I'm more popular. I have a big group of friends, everyone in my classes talk to me like I'm a human being and not some lowlife like it was back in school. It's so much better now
    And people from my old school are seeing that, and I hope they f*ing feel bad for bullying me for all those years! it didn't work, I'm a better person, they didn't break me!

    Sorry, this thread has brought up lots of anger and resentment that I've not thought about for months! :lol:

    God no I was about as unpopular as it got but when I hit sixth form I realised I. Just. Didn't. Care

    Now I'm at university and have a great bunch of friends and I realise how popular at school meant how well you could chuck a testicle-shaped ball to a bunch of idiots.

    i was neutral but went a bit popular coz i was really fast at running and after sports day, everyone would talk to me and congratulate me and talk about me but when the new term started, it kinda went away
    i was also a rival to some of the popular boys at athletics, hehe
    right now, since im in 6th form, ive gotten more popular coz im more clever and funny so they say, but not too popular though

    And - No, I was not especially popular.
    Although in my last year of high school I certainly became more popular because everyone was socialising more - I was going out more.. people seemed to notice my charm and excellent humour more. Not to mention my modesty.
