but you know kids these days..they wont let people change and its always hard when your already labeled as something

Hey, that's so true! I mean, I'm always quiet at school and people never seem to expect me to say anything. So I don't. For them, it would seem almost like out of ordinary if I ever talked. So I stay quiet and so they expect me to stay quiet and so on. Everybody just thinks I'm weird, ugly, quiet and boring. Who wants to talk with that kind of a person? People might think that they're weird, ugly and boring, too. Don't come closer to me or you might get infected! And then everyone will hate you, too! Of course, everyone wants to be popular, so they leave me alone. Ah, if only I had been funny, nice and talkative from the beginning...

Right, it can be pretty for people to change. You have been assigned a role and you must act by it. You sir, you are UNPOPULAR. Now you can proceed to be so for the rest of your life. No no, you can't change the role, sir. It has already been assigned.

Anyway, I hope things go well with your friend. Nice to hear that people still have friends who really care.
Hmm..I'm the "Geeky" kid in our school. Only one that plays dnd, relatively up to date with video game news (thanks to this place), grammar nazi, straight a's, bad hair (not like my 7th grade jewfro, but getting there), reads a book a day, etc. Somehow though, I'm not shunned at all. Except by rednecks, who i refuse to speak with anyway, because their only purpose at my school is to make fun of people who don't drive trucks.

Oh well. That's a good thing.

Or...be generally quite charismatic and somewhat interesting? Being funny helps.

People who emulate each other are dull; and end up only friends with similar clones. Have fun.

I find that the people who do this are usually the ones considered popular.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

2) Take drugs daily.
3) Abuse anyone that stands out.
4) Wear garbage.
5) ???
6) Popularity!

Thats crap. I used to be pretty unpopular in the early days of secondary school; now I am really popular. I don't think theres any sort of conspiracy to stop people being popular; if they desire such a thing. Ever considered that people sometimes don't like other people simply because they're not exceedingly likeable?

But no, obviously they're just terrified of losing social status. Maybe everyone really is that shallow.

Yeah, you're right. Maybe I put it wrong in my post, but I can't be bothered to check because... well, the whole post just sounds too stupid now... But I suppose I just needed to get all the stupid thoughts out of my head for once. I mean... if you just think about something too long, it will eventually turn out a bit disproportioned, you know what I mean?

I agree that it's most likely me that is causing my own problems. Being overly paranoid about everything probably doesn't make one much more likable. But it just bothers me a bit when I'm the first one to come sit at my pals' regular bench and then they walk right past me and go sit somewhere else. And then they talk about "us 5" when there's 6 of us. They probably think I'm just incredibly stupid for not getting the message already.

Aw crap, just forget that I said anything.

Then those people are dicks and should be ditched anyway. You'll find better friends elsewhere. I think a huge amount of it comes down to confidence.

Yeah, Clone People are popular, but generally only amongst other clones. Developing your own personality and interests is preferable. Enjoy being the envy of the Clone people for your freedom.

You realize you can't define popular, as who's popular is defined by the popular definition?

(Ouch, brain pain)

Anyway, I don't support what I am saying, or am moaning about it in any way. Just stating the obvious.

Cliques happen. Form your own.

EDIT: Without meaning to sound harsh, it's not like you don't have any friends at all, is it? And if you're hanging around with people who ignore you, are they really your friends? You should hang out with people who like you, or not at all.

I split this off as it seemed to warrant it's own thread since there is much discussion about teens and friend problems.

-----

This morning there is another story of a group of teen age girls beating up another girl and posting it on YouTube. Then follows a story of a rise in underage drinking for teen girls. Videos and pictures of drunk girls also get posted on myspace and facebook. It seems like peer pressure with a dose of utter stupidity make for a very bad combination. What happened to common sense?

It never existed. Teenagers have been disruptive and idiotic from the beginning of time.

Ah, that goes back to the dawn of time as well >_>

Another story? I thought there was only one occurrence of these events ???.

I guess the teen population is getting more violent with the hormones raging and what not.
I do agree with you KS teenagers were always like this, but it seems with the modern times acts of violence among teens seems to be more excessive and more and more violent.

When will it stop?!
(likely never)
Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

Teens have always done stupid things but it seems to be worse with the internet available. These things won't go away, it will be there to haunt them much later. Back in the past kids who went drinking would not video it, they went to great lengths to hide it. I don't remember girls grouping up to beat up other girls. The guys did it sometimes but that was after school or on the way home.

Well the internet is a gateway to other horrible things but at least we know what goes down in the videos. With out the videos (applies to some cases) evidence could be hard to get as most teens would rather hide things from adults. Examples: bad report cards, bullying, internet threats etc.

Video taping is one of the stupidest things to do, plus putting it on youtube, or any other video hosting website, is even worse. The reason for it is popularity, but I don't see how beating up some one who didn't want a fight in the first place and posting it on the web makes you popular.

I had a classmate during my first semester who decided it would be a good idea to take pictures of herself naked, and send them to her then-boyfriend. Well, he sent them to his friends, then they to theirs...and so on. Fortunately I never got them; I don't really want to be involved. People even took the pictures, made a fake myspace for the girl, and made the pictures the profile images. Anyway, I think she got ISS and that was about it.

One week later: I'm watching the news, and I see that in Pennsylvania pretty much the same thing happened, except that instead of ISS for the girl, everyone who may have gotten the pictures had their phone confiscated by police to see if they had deleted the images, and if they didn't comply they'd be tried for possession of child pornography.

Yeah..people do strange things.
