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.

I had that same problem! I'm not what you would call "popular". I had 2 or 3 close friends, no one else really knew who I was. But I got a boyfriend, who likes me for me. Its not always about popularity to get someone who cares.(:

haha, this doesn't seem to work for me. i'm not popular, and i'm going into 8th grade, and i've never had a bf in my life. but i guess i'm not alone, cuz my bestie is going into 9th grade and is in the same boat as me.

There are a lot of girls I know who have bfs at my school who arent popular. So you will have a bf if you want one. I think there are guys who only go for popular people but I think there are a lot of guys who dont. Just have a nice personality and you should attract guys, some who you may even like and want to date.

At my school, if you're not in the popular clique, you don't have a boyfriend. In fact, hardly anybody who's not popular has ever had a bf...if the article is true than I live in a pretty bad area haha

Ummmm....confident is spelled wrong
by monkeyqueen99 on 7/19/2011 6:24:56 PM
This is one of the biggest questions in life. Trust me, guys REALLY don't care. If anything, guys find it huge turn of if you just care about popularity.
If he does, well.. he has problems. XD

It is going to be so weird to go to school this year because my elementary school separated into 2 middle schools and now we all come back together in high school. Everyone is going to look different. It's kind of exciting in a way. Maybe some of the cute ones are nicer haha. Hopefully guys really don't care about popularity. But I would never want a guy who likes popular girls anyway.

Guys at my school only date popular girls...
by jackieluvz on 7/19/2011 2:58:13 PM
i cant wait until the guys in my class figure that out bc they think the most popular mean brat is hot because of her "sassyness" Which in my case happens to be my cousin.... talk about a rough life.....
