all the good guys in my school are the popular guys.. the others are either the nerds, gays, or just plain weirdos. so in my school if you want a good guy, you have to be popular.. so id say the best advice in here would be to go after a guy from a different school! i found one from a different school and he actually got to know the real me, and not just my social place..

Wow, sorry, but this seems like kind of a silly question to me. My boyfriend and I are self-declared nerds and would NEVER have been considered "popular", but we're unbelievably happy with each other. Interestingly, on the last day of school, a whole gang of popular girls came up to us and told us - in complete honesty - that we were adorable together.

Boys in my middle school only date popular girls so I hope that changes in high school because it seems like girls and boys date each other for popularity and not because they really like each other.

Usually the "popular" couples who go out with each other just for the sake of dating aren't having that great of a relationship anyway. There's a good amount of people at my school who started to date in freshmen yr (or earlier) and remained together even after they've graduated. A lot of them weren't even in the same group of friends/social circle to begin with. If he truly likes you, the last thing on his mind would be if you're popular or not.

From personal experiences this is not a problem at all! I never compare myself to "popular" group because I know that even though they seem perfect their lives are filled with drama and fake relationships alot of the time. Girls that are confident not full of themselves are what guys look for. SO as long as you don't compare yourself to those so called "popular" girls and you are confident in yourself the right guy is probably already got you on his radar.
