    I have a big dilemma.

    I've been to various colleges and schools and I always experience the same cycle. I would say I'm easy to talk to and genuinely friendly, you could say I 'make friends quickly' until..

    Well girls are nice and talkative with me at first, they compliment my looks, we get along and then all of a sudden they seem to act offish..gradually stop speaking to me, go quiet when I'm around, give weird looks and I don't know why?? It's not all of them but it happens so often I'm worried that maybe it's me coming across as arrogant?
    I've been asked where I've applied to, I answer normally but when I say Cambridge they go ahh.. Another thing, my teacher has praised me a lot recently in class and I've noticed that now when I ask a question in group chat I get ignored, always.

    Most of them speak with, or put on that RP accent. I use standard English, occasional slang, I guess the light makeup doesn't help so maybe they judge me and..
    I'm gonna be straight, I think people assume that I'm a bimbo based on first impressions and when they realise I'm quite smart they just change (not to say they aren't intelligent themselves). I don't understand it and it's really getting me down. I want to be in a nice friendship group, usually I end up with just one friend. Am I too arrogant maybe?

    Help or advice is appreciated.. has anyone experienced anything similar ??
