    That happened to me - when I left school, it was the most amazing feeling. Going back for prom a year later was great too as everyone was amazed at how far I'd gotten since leaving. Bit pathetic maybe, but it gave me such a boost.

    My advice would be to stick it out and keep telling yourself that you are a much better person than they are, because they think making someone feel like you do is okay, when we all know it's far from it. Or, stand up to them. Try and make new friends at school - I know how hard this is, but joining something or even just talking to people who sit beside you in class is a good way to go about it.

    With fronds like these, who needs anemones?

    Seriously though - you should definitely try to make some new friends, but even if you don't it's not the end of the world (going to uni will certainly enable you to make a whole bunch of new friends who aren't douchebags like these guys)

    Tbh i feel like a better person than them(i sound realy bigheaded here but they are all a**es) becasue they have no individuality atall-they will cimpletely copy eachotehr and step over eachotehr just for tiny piece of attention from "the popular kids"

    Yes, I know exactly what you mean! I always felt awkward because I apparently "stuck out like a sore thumb" at high school, but now I'm just proud of it. You should be, too. (:

    Seriously, uni friends OWN school friends. A lot of people keep uni friends for life, but only a few keep their school friends.

    To be perfectly honest, I much prefer my uni friends to be home friends, bar one.

    And at least you're friends with your bro and have him. You'll be okay.
    My college friends own uni friends! The thing is OP, they are not idiots like these so-called friends of yours. They shouldn't be putting you in a position where you feel uncomfortable like that! Try and stick it out for the year and if you can't, then live in the library. Even if you don't get in to uni this time round (which you hopefully will! ), you can take a gap year and get away from them.

    OP, I realised some time ago that most of the people with whom I regularly socialise are not only not my friends, I find them deeply irritating. This is not as troubling as it might sound. Simply try extend your social group to more and more people. Talk to people you wouldn't normally. You will find that those whom you actually like will kind of drift towards you. You should repeat this process until you have a core of people you actually like.

    To make the transition more bearable, I recommend using sarcastic quips as a way to vent your anger/betrayal/hurt. That's what I do anyway.

    I'm kind of similar with one of my friends, I try to get on with him but he's just really sarcastic at times in a nasty way or patronising and lies about little things and it just annoys me.

    How about joining a club or anything outside college (sounds a bit cliched, but works!)

    if you do something that interests you, chances are you'll find like-minded people who will make you great friends. keep trying, i'm sure you'll find someone!
