    I am not trying to be ignorant, but I seriously do not understand how does someone allow to get bullied, by allow I mean just ignore the bully.

    For example lets say the bully is your flatmate or lives in the same house as you do, and he randomly starts calling you names or breaks your stuff or whatever, I would approach and ask what the hell are you doing at first, and then if he does not give me a satisfactory answer and continues doing the thing he does, I would beat the crap out of him. I wouldn't really care if the guy is 2m tall with 120kg and I get beaten up, I just could not stand there and allow some ******* to do that.

    Although a chance for somebody to even think about bullying me is very slim since I have confidence and hence I am not a pushover.
    You don't have to be buffed up to not allow bullies to even try bullying you, you just have to project confidence and some mystery in yourself, that way potential bullies would fear what you could do.

    I am not sure why exactly people get bullied but I do not understand it, maybe it is because I do not come from the UK but from a country where almost nobody gets bullied since everyone stands up for themselves.

    Edit: The most important thing is not to get into a situation where somebody bullies you then you won't have to worry whether to fight the guy or not. If you project confidence, keep a little mystery about yourself nobody will dare to intimidate you.

    Cowardice or Niceness. Some people would rather avoid conflict even if that means others are nasty to them. Some people are too weak to fight back even though they want to.

    Personally, I'd give them a good punch even if they would beat me up, and that's probably why I was never bullied.

    If you punch people for name calling then you just come across as autistic, which is probably why the bullies stayed away from you

    Ah yes, having self respect and wanting people to treat you properly is precisely the attitude of someone who struggles to socialise.

    So if some guy which I don't know well at all comes to my face and calls me some name dead serious, what do you expect me to do?
    The only thing you can do is knock the ****er out.

    Well hell, people need to realise that life is not for the weak and get some god damn confidence.
    I've seen some situations where physically inferior guys completely owned wannabe bullies.
    Two guys started teasing my friend who is like 1.70m and slim, he turned around looked at them in the eyes very directly, pounded the table with his fist and told them to get the hell out of his kitchen. The two guys which very 1.90 and guys who regularly go to gym started literally shaking from fear.

    This guy likely thinks we are unnecessarily aggressive. I'd personally have a word with them first and ask them politely to stop, otherwise that's the only course of action one is left with.

    I actually never fought with someone like this. This situation almost never happened to me anyway, maybe a few times but it never escalated to a fight because I approached the guy to his face and intimidated him with confidence and preparedness to beat the hell out of him.

    Well I wouldn't hit him immediately of course, I would first try to find out why did he say that and if he doesn't say it again and leaves, I'll just let him leave.
    Fighting is the last case scenario.

    There is no such country. People get bullied because they cannot defend themselves, the kind of person who can beat the crap out of others does not get bullied. Besides if you beat the crap out of someone you get punished, you might get expelled from school or kicked out of your house. Better to just let yourself be bullied.

    Better to just passively stroll through life while people take advantage of you. Some education you've achieved there, i'd rather not go to any school that encouraged such uselessness.

    It's easy for people to say "stand up for yourself" when they haven't been bullied. All respects to those who stand up for themselves but when there's more than 1 person taunting you or pushing you about it's harder to speak up for yourself, especially if you hate conflict and hate confrontation.

    People used to bully me I believe because of how I looked and how socially inept I was. It makes it easier for bullies to continue when you're not able to stick up for yourself.

    That's not the same as physically harming someone for saying mean words to you, grow up
