Dear Carol: I'm fed up with being a "geek"

My friends and I are always made fun of for being good students. We’re called “geeks” and “nerds” just because we get good grades and score well...

@raniey, I totally relate. DO NOT ever play dumb, or not answer questions to seem "cooler" sacrificing your good grades is not worth it. But don't be condescending to others, if someone asks you how you did on a test you got 100 on, say really well rather than the actual number, and if they press, say your grades are your business. This way people will still know your smart, and people will always know that (it's a good thing) but by not sharing numbers you will lose any negative stigma. Hope this helps, and if you want to chat, check out my advice queen page: dragonsrox1000

Why is it bad to be called a nerd or geek!?!?! I NO GET IT.

by prettyotter on 12/28/2012 7:30:22 PM


don't worry about what other people say. when people call you a geek or nerd it just means you are very smart. And you can get very good tings out of being smart, like you will go to a good collage and you willget a good job. So if someone says you ae a nerd or a geek say thank you. Smile

by fairy farmer on 8/18/2012 8:04:01 PM


I can relate. I get 100% in almost EVERYTHING. My friends are super awesome about it and support me but others aren't. I sit in the back of the class yet STILL I can hear people talking about me calling me a "geek" or a "brainy-pants". Sometimes I worry that guys won't ask me out because I'm smart. All the popular girls who the guys like aren't that bright.


by Raniey on 6/6/2012 8:49:54 PM


I get an a on pretty much every paper I get and people call me a geek but the people who call me a geek get like a f on every paper so you should just shake off the people and think its great being a geek because i now im smart then and people calling me a geek probably are jealous of the grades i get.

by dancer for life!!! on 4/2/2012 7:37:01 PM


I'm sort of like that too
But I'm not any "uglier than the ppl who call me it
My crush likes my BFF
She doesn't like him
Wat do I do?

Hey girlie,

Remember you can never make someone like you. But since you know your BFF isn't a "threat," try becoming his friend and letting him get to know you better! Flirt a little, but more importantly be a really good friend. Swap music and movies, talk about hobbies, do homework together, text, etc. Give it a try - growing closer to the guy is the BEST way to win him over!

Don't feel like a geek! I get good grades and I've gotten asked out six times in the past month!

by prettysister812 on 3/8/2012 7:22:56 PM


it doesnt matter what they call u... as long as ur happy with urself thats all that matters. Besides, I dont know anyone who's cool for being dumb.

by lalagirl777 on 3/8/2012 4:24:30 PM


No one said being called a geek was a bad thing. The next time someone calls you a geek say thanks cuz one day you'll be working for one. lol
btw im also considered a geek but i dont care i want a bright future so I have to work for it

by anerelis on 3/8/2012 4:21:11 PM


hey im only 12 years old and i really want to ask my crush out, but how? im only 12!!!! Please give me advice!

by kaeliestar on 3/3/2012 1:15:01 PM


I'm a geek cuz i role-play, and you know what, when pepole call me a geek I'm just like thanks! because geeks are smart! it's funny :3

by raven.y on 2/27/2012 3:42:12 AM


To the girl who wrote this, I know how you feel. I get mocked a lot at swim practice because I carry my backpack around at school with me, I keep a daily planner, and I wear my flashdrive on a lanyard around my neck. But don't worry, because the G&T people are the one's who really count right now, and then colleges in the future who will more than appreciate your hard work ethic. Keep your head up, and be confident with who you are!! (P.S. There are many guys out there who REALLY dig the smart and dorky type)
(P.S.S I absolutely adore and appreciate your fake name, "A+nnoyed". Insanely clever, BravoSmile

by alibaba on 2/25/2012 6:32:38 PM


That's so weird! At my school, you are well-liked if you get good grades! And next time people say you are geeky or anything, just laugh and play along! It makes them so mad, and it makes you less mad, so maybe they will stop! Haha, good luck! Smile

by mcw99 on 2/24/2012 9:13:43 PM


i wouldn't call urself a geek. its awesome that u hav good grades! keep up the good work!

by myfatsquirrel on 2/18/2012 9:40:04 PM


Hey I know how you feel I consider myself as a geek too. Here's what I have learned over the years u need to reject the status, these people are just jealous of who u r, and for that u should be proud.

by smith0507 on 2/11/2012 9:20:08 PM


u shouldnt care about what there saying!! there making fun of u because ur smart??? there probably just jealous! and wait tell they work for u hun! PAYBACK!

by Lena1229 on 2/10/2012 5:04:29 PM


I know exactly how you feel. I have always been in all honors classes and am gifted and sometimes get teased for being "too smart". Just try to persevere, ten years from now you will be much more successful than everyone else. Smile

by sarah1200 on 2/5/2012 5:29:33 PM


hey girl don't beat yourself up about it. I'm also in the Gifted and Talented program. Like you, I also get called "geek" "nerd" and "miss know it all". I totally feel for you. How I deal with it is I take them all in as complements. (It actually helps a little!) ;)

by lalalinds on 2/5/2012 10:06:42 AM


Hey, don't feel bad about being a geek. In my opinion, a "geek" is a really awesome smart person. I consider myself geeky all the time. In fact there are a few books about girls who consider themselves as "geeky" or "dorky." There is also a Disney movie that just recently went on Disney channel called "Frenemies" and the website these two friends make is called Geekly Chic. So like I said, don't feel bad about being a geek!

by Egirl973 on 2/3/2012 1:34:24 AM


Don't listen to what other kids say cause when your older you will be successful

by starstruck0503 on 2/2/2012 5:36:13 PM


I deifiantly know how it feels. I'm in an honors math class that is 3 grades higher than my actual grade, and I'm in gifted and talented english and lit. people kid and are like "oh, you're a nerd, what's the answer?" but they dont understand that people take that to the heart. but i get over it, and you should too. because just think: one day, you may be a rocket scientist, while they're working at mcdonalds for minimun wage. (: they're just jealous.

by sinkinginblack on 1/27/2012 6:27:46 PM


they are jealous because they arnt in those classes....i cant wait until u become a sucess(:

I don't know what to do its only three weeks into the new semester and last semester I had straight A's and this semester they changed my math teacher because I was struggling and made my whole schedule change and now I have Cs and Ds and that's not me and it's all because I got a schedule change I tried to talk to the teachers about it and my mom even called once and they haven't changed anything help I'm struggling and I don't know what else to do and how to get my schedule back

Hey girl,

You're hanging onto this old schedule and using it as an excuse for getting these lower grades. What you need to do is STOP blaming this on the change of schedule and, instead, work with what you got. If you're not working as hard as you can, set aside more time after school to work and study. If you have questions, talk to your teachers after class and ask questions during class to get them answered. If you're super confused, ask friends or check with your counselor to see if there are tutors available. It's important to learn that you can't blame outside forces for bad stuff that happens in your life. You have to work hard, take responsibility for yourself, and make this situation better!

In school we're doing a project soon and a topic is music and they are kinda looking for people to form a band who can play guitars and other instruments but they also said singers. I like to sing and feel I'm pretty decent but no one really knoes except my best friend. but the popular girl aka girl who hates me was gonna do it and from what I've heard she's really good. Id like a shot but don't wanna be completely crushed and embarassed. What should I do?

Hey babe,

You gotta give it a try! First, ask your family and a couple other friends to hear you sing. See what they think. Record yourself on your computer and listen on your own as well - you're always your harshest critic! You could also ask the chorus teacher at your school for some pointers. Then, if they seem into your voice, audition for it! The worst that will happen is they choose to go for the popular girl (or someone else) instead. But you'll never know unless you try!

Hey sweetgal63, we have some great articles on overcoming shyness. I think they will really help you. Click the links below to read them! Xoxo

So i'm really shy even though inside i'm truly outgoing. Sometimes i get so shy and nervous that it comes off as me being mean which i don't want to come across as. I always think people are judging me and won't like me. Also prom is this may and i really want to have a date. how do i bring out the outgoingness in myself? how do i stop thinking people are judging me? Lynae P.

by sweetgal63 on 1/25/2012 6:33:24 PM


MOD MOD MOD So this guy at my church likes me but he's also my ex. Recently he's been flirting and even telling me to call him. He has even managed to get me to kiss him a few times (including today) He's cute but he's two years older and a player. My friend told me he is talking to a friend of hers right now. and I know I should stay away. But hes always so gentle and kind with me and when he wants to kiss I try and try but I cant resist. What should I do?


He doesnt seem like a guy you can trust. If hes flirting with you while talking to another girl he doesnt care about you. Not like how you deserve. Dont let yourself get hurt over a guy like him. xoxo kerra

i need really really really good date ideas for the crazy couple me and my bf are. we are insanely crazy, so make them fun and crazy!please!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey babe,

You should make your dates about trying new things! Sit down with him and make lists of things you've always wanted to try. Amusement parks, rock climbing, hiking, roller blading, kayaking, taking a dance lesson or kickboxing class, go-karting, paintball, laser tag, etc. are all great choices for a more adventurous couple!

I know how u feel just the other day a few kids were calling me nerd and geek because I had higher grades then them

don`t think of yourself as a geek. just be you.

by ergily on 1/17/2012 7:19:07 PM


I understand how you feel. A lot of people call me a geek due to my grades, hobbies, what I like, and who I hang out with. Believe me, I know how it feels, and it doesn't feel great. Just ignore them, and if that doesn't work or just make things better, you should talk to either a parent or someone you trust. It's full proof. Trust me!!! I hope this help you enough.

I'm a dork, because I'm in GT. But I'm still pretty darn cool, as my friends say. Anyways, I think of it like this: the haters will become your employees in the long run! ;)

by _InsertSydneyHere_ on 1/15/2012 11:52:10 AM


I am in the G/T program too! OMG a lot of people on Girls Life are in G/T, except at my school G/T is referred to as "excel". Anyways, GT is so fun! It allows us to have breaks from class (because we already grasp most of the material) and just get challenged while still havin a ton of fun. We even go on field trips and three of my best friends are in the program, too. Probably because we've all been in G/T since kindergarten, so we know each other real well and can relate. It makes us kind of look dorky, but as ParamoreRox13 said, it looks good on college resumes. I just ignore the haters, they are usually jealous. XOXO

So my crush is a close friend of mine. I liked him last year, and I told him last year, but he told me that didn't like me back. We're still friends, but I still like him. His best girl friend keeps flirting with him. What should I do?

Hey babe,

He already told you he didn't like you "like that," so there's not much you can do to convince him otherwise. Personally, I'd stay friends (because if you're crushing on him, you like him as a person) while also trying to branch out so you meet new people. Sometimes even flirting won't force someone to like us - we've all gone through that disappointment. But even though it's a bummer, it doesn't mean it's the end of the world! Join a new club, hang out with your friends-of-friends, get a part time job, or catch up with old friends who could be potential new crushes. You can't talk yourself out of liking someone (because we can't control our emotions sometimes), but keep an open mind so you can move on!

I know this has nothing to do with story.But i'm at my Breaking Point.I can't get along with my dad for nothing.I can't stand him sometimes and he makes me so mad. Me and my mom get along fine but my dad is just grumpy and annoying and i feel sorry for my mom cause she has to deal with him till me and my brother are out of school.My parents aren;t even married.Like today i made cinnamon buns and he was complaining how i need to clean every spot.He bickers and bickers all the time.I don't even come out my room that much,I try to stay out with my friends as long as I can, and i actually don't want to leave school.And sometimes he doesn't understand the things that come out of his mouth he called me fat one day AND IM NOT EVEN FAT.Like seriously who would say that to their own child.I'm not really asking for help to fix my father, daughter relationship i'm just asking for what can help with stress and just passing through the day.
Sorry it was long.

Hey girlie,

I totally understand where you're coming from. Sometimes it isn't easy (or even possible) to get along with family members, which stinks but is a fact we have to deal with. But he doesn't have to stress you out or make you feel upset! It sounds like you're doing a great job of spending time away from him, using your friends, school, and alone time as distractions. Good! There are some times when you can't avoid him though, so remember to take deep breaths to calm down. Even when he's trying to agitate you, don't get into any arguments with him - it'll only make it worse. Be very nice and pleasant - almost sickeningly sweet. Respect him and keep calm. Then, when you feel like things are boiling up to your breaking point, excuse yourself and go into your room. Shut the door and take more deep breaths. Write down your feelings in your journal or listen to a song and sing LOUD. You'll get your frustrations out and recharge yourself so you can deal with it more. You can also use your brother as an ally - swap your stories with him and you can use each other to vent since you're going through this together. <3

How I can I start up a babysitting gig while being safe? And I'm home-schooled so no passing flyers in school. Thank-you so much!

Hey girlie,

Get your parents on board to help ya! Ask them to talk to friends, coworkers, neighbors, and distant family members who might need a babysitter. They can spread the word to adults they trust, which will keep things safe for you Smile

by iluvmusic♥ on 1/14/2012 10:26:55 PM


Those people - ARE jealous!
Would you rather be known for being a good person, or be known as being a bad person?
In the long run, you and you're friend will become sucessfull in life, whereas those bullies just might become you're employies.

P.S. IF you MUST try to change their minds just a little have you and your friend do something DARING. Suprise them all!. But most of all, have FUN and LIVE your LIFE - the way YOU want to!

by AJWMusic246 on 1/14/2012 7:03:47 PM


I love being in the GT program! It's so much fun and I have some really good friends in there with me. But some of my friends who aren't in the GT classes with me found out when I registered that we would have possibly had classes together had I not gotten into GT and they said I should transfer out of it so that we could be together. Not that I didn't want to be with them, but GT is something that can help me stand out and get into a college and I don't know that they understand that, which is fine because going to college might not be something they want. But I would love to play softball for my college and my only way to get into college is on a scholarship and I'm working REALLY hard for an athletic/academic scholarship cuz it's the only way I can afford it. Being in GT isn't a bad thing and good grades are NOTHING to be ashamed of. Just remember that ur haters are ur biggest fans

Hey Doodle600, the way to overcome a fear is to face it. So make yourself sing in front of other people. You could start by performing for your mom and BFF, and then start auditioning for shows. Everyone gets a little nervous before performing, but you can't let those nerves ruin your performance. The more you practice, they better you will get. Good luck! Xoxo

Mod Mod Mod
At the moment, I can hear my sister practicing her audition piece for her next play. I really want to do a play, but I don't because I am too shy. It's really weird, because I am not a shy person at all. I will talk non-stop with my friends and family, and I have played solos on my flute in concerts, but singing. . . The only person I sing in front of is my sister--not even my BFF or my mom! I can sing, but I have a broken range, and I am just too scared too. I love to sing, dance, and act, but I don't think I could do it on the stage!I hate presenting in class and singing in front of people. How can I learn to be more bold? Lynae P.

by Doodle600 on 1/14/2012 4:30:38 PM


Hey MiNNi, if they were your real friends they wouldn't believe those rumors. The ones who are your true pals, will know you're happy for them and admire their intelligence. Xoxo

My friends are all really smart and they at all in my schools mentally gifted class. I feel stupid because they get srait A's while I would be lucky if I didn't get a C. They go on a trip every Friday and when they are gone, I have to sit by myself. People always ask if I miss them and I say no because they are only gone for one day. Then they say that I hate them and now people at school think it's true. Only 1 of my friends believe it because I always stay with her forever. What should I do? Lynae P.

by MiNNi101 on 1/14/2012 3:50:48 PM


Hey imposible2, the next time you guys are arguing just agree to disagree. Trade the arguing for flirting. Once he sees your softer behavior he'll start to get the hint. Hope this helps! Xoxo

There's this guy that I like and I can't tell if he likes me, were kinda friends so I don't want to be too obvious in trying to get the point across, but we don't see eye to eye very much and we argue a lot so is there any way to get around this and maybe get to be BF/ GF? Lynae P.

by imposible2 on 1/14/2012 2:49:12 PM

Sorry this is off topic, but since my birthday is this month, I'm thinking of throwing a party. Do you have any suggestions for a fun place to go? We have an ice rink and rock climbing place, but I didn't really want to do that. Any suggestions would help! Thanks(:

Hey girl,

You could always go bowling or to a movie, or if your 'rents will let you, why not throw a party at your house? That way, you can pick a theme and play whatever games and have whatever food you want! Happy birthday!

MOD!

 Hey girl,

Just make a good argument and say "Mom I've had glasses since I'm 13 and I think I'm responsible enough to start wearing contact lenses." In terms of the braces colors, I don't think you can really go wrong- I would just pick your two fave colors!

I am in that same situation. I get straight As, I always make it into music programs (that's my PASSION!) and I'm in the higher group for dance. But, people take these things the wrong way and get jealous. All of my classmates, have talked about me behind my back, and I'm pretty sure my bestie has, too. But, you know what? Who cares?! They can say what they want, but if you're nice to them, they'll regret what they said about you. Keep that head up high and be proud of your accomplishments! Don't let words bring you down Smile

So (this is an addition to my last post because of the 1000 limit) I want Jordan back as my Best Friend. But we hav barely talked since the breakup and his friends are jerks to me. They all hate me and yell at me when I walk past and whenever I say "hi" to Jordan they tell me he hates me. I stopped saying hi. Jordan got upset. He wanted to know why we didn't talk. I didnt answer. he is being a jerk to my BFF (his xgf too)and tells her that everyone hates her. I called him and yelled at him cuz tht rlly hurt her. He was confused and said tht he never meant to hurt me. I called him a jerk and he asked why so i told him about how he always treated me that way. He said he would never hurt me. But he did. Again and again. What bothers me the most is that peopl say Jordan broke up with me was because of Brody (my bf) liking me. I am confused and kinda mad at Brody for this because i miss Jordan!! What is going thru Jordan's head right now??

And continued... you can't judge Jordan based on his friends. And you also can't judge the breakup based on what OTHER people say about it. You gotta go straight to Jordan. If you wanna be friends again, try talking to him one-on-one - online, via text, catch him with none of his friends around, etc. Just let him know that you do want to be friends and you'd love to start fresh. (Although the fact that he was being a jerk to your bestie is kinda a deal breaker for me...) He sounds like he's making excuses and you are too, blaming that breakup on the fact that Brody liked you. Jordan sounds like HE doesn't know what he wants either and is trying to cover his tracks, blaming all the hurtful things he does on other things. Like I said on your last post, take some time to seriously think about this stuff before rushing into anything!

I am so confused!!! I have a bf (Brody) and I kinda like him. It's a little awkward because he hits on every girl and I don't really know why he asked ME out! What bothers me is that my ex-bf (Jordan) dumped me and I dont know why! People tell me it was because Brody liked me and some how convinced him to tell me that we were through. I like Jordan a lot still (maybe even a little more than I like Brody!) but I still love Brody. But then there is this guy who I talk to day and night who goes to our rival school (Kyle). I know for a fact that he likes me and I like him too. I am so confused because I want Jordan back, I dont want to break up with Brody because I dont want to hurt him, and I want to be with Kyle but i hav only ever txtd him. I would never be able to hang out with Kyle either!

Ooooh girl... you gotta make some decisions here! First of all, consider the fact that Jordan dumped you. It doesn't matter why - he decided he wanted to let you go, which is crazy. Plus, you don't know if you could have a CHANCE of getting back together if you broke up with Brody, so you have to ask yourself: is it worth the risk? Either way, the fact is... you can do better! So keep that in mind. Next, think about Brody. If he's your BF, he really shouldn't be hitting on other girls. Does he treat you well and do you talk/hang out a lot? Do you feel a connection that makes you happy? Consider your relationship with him and if it's what you want. Thinking about Jordan and Kyle while you're Brody's GF... doesn't seem like a good sign. Personally, if I was this confused, I'd probably take some time to be single. That way, I could really consider what I wanted and figure out what to do!

Don't worry about it too much. One day you'll be well off and most of the kids who made fun of you will likely still be living in their parents' basements.

by [reinventlove]♥ on 1/12/2012 12:53:46 PM


i'm smart and get strait straight a's. no one bothers me... all my friends are awesome nerds too. i actually don't care if people call me a nerd. Smile

by amileofroses on 1/11/2012 10:56:32 PM


Don't worry! Someday you'll be living in a big old city and all they're ever gonna be is MEAN! Also, us geeks are WAAAAAY cooler than other snobs Smile

The people making fun of you arent going to get into college for being stupid :p

paris_mi4 im 4'9" and 13

by winzers22 on 1/11/2012 7:24:35 PM


Don't worry! I used to get made fun of for being a geek, because I had glasses and had super short hair that DID NOT look good with my glasses; I also got straight A's. Before I came to this school for "geeks" (you have to pass a test to get in) I took a test for the highly capable program in fourth grade and passed, but then I changed to the testing school. After that, I ditched my glasses and got contacts and grew my hair out in a stylish fashion. Now, I don't get made fun of because everyone at my school are nerds Smile

by echri12 on 1/11/2012 3:16:34 PM


Im 14 and really sensitive about my size i'm 5'2 is that normal???

Hey girly! It is okay to be conscious of your size. Every girl has some insecurities but there is nothing to obsess about. You are fine the way that you are and should not let others influence how you think of yourself. If you really want to feel better try working out and eating right, the healthy way.

Being a geek isn't a bad thing, (just check out my club below Tong), so embrace it! Play it up with geek chic glasses and adorable high waist-ed sailor shorts with a tucked in flowery tank. But laugh and don't talk about grades or the like.

Join my club, 'Orchestra Nerds and Band Geeks.' It's a loose and fun club where we talk about anything and everything- But especially music Smile Go to my profile to join!! svds

by svds on 1/10/2012 8:07:47 PM


Hey! I so know how you feel! I'm also in the gifted program, and me and my friends get the top grades too. We don't brag, but in my school, the other kids think that we are also snobby, and it's sort of a segregation between us. People have called me a geek and nerd before, and more commonly, "giftie." I take these comments with grace, and smile, and walk away. I usually speak what I'm saying, and get to know some of them better. There's always one student that isn't like others, calling you a nerd. So try to scope out those people, and befriend them, and just slowly get to know the other people and soon, they will accept you like nothing happened. What I did was with my friends, ask them if I could play soccer (my best sport) with them, and we dominated them, and they totally respect us now, and we all get along.

by Qwertypus on 1/10/2012 6:31:14 PM


I am a straight A student and I like my teacher a lot but some kids call me a teachers pet. I know that I really shouldn't care 'cause they're just some random kids in my class but sometimes I think that I might really be a teachers pet. I don't want to be a teachers pet.

by 53781 on 1/10/2012 6:24:43 PM


I think I might be sending the wrong signals to my crush. I'm really shy but not when I'm around my friends or family. But when I'm with my crush I can't even cough up a word. And when I look at my crush and he looks back I turn away, but I'm worried that he thinks I don't like him. Oh, and he also is "dating" someone I know. What should I do?


Well any boy whos taken is not something you should be messing with. It will just lead to heartbreak for most of the people involved. also start with small things like holding his gaze for a bit longer when he looks at you. Small steps will get you to stop being so shy and work up the nerve to talk to him. xoxo kerra

Well, I'm fed up with being in the "dumb" class. We have the same classes as the other class except they have Honers Algebra and we have regular Algebra. Even teachers have called our class dumb. I know I could be in Honers because I have like a 95 in math, but I just didn't want all the stress! It's very annoying to always be called stupid and dumb when you know you aren't. Also the other class thinks they are so much better than us and I have higher grades than most of them. I'm not saying that people in Honers or Gifted programs are all snobs. If you spent a day at my school you would see that mostly everyone is a snob...even if they aren't in Honers.

by Georgie 4 on 1/10/2012 5:20:28 PM


Ok i have 3 probs
1: My sister does not do well in school so when my mom talks to her about it she heas suicidal thoughts and cuts herself then she lies and says its cat scratches.
2: I turn 11 and I'm not as little as i was before i just feel diffrent and how can i tell my mom im ready to give up baby things.
3: I get money a lot and save.My mom and dad ask for money and when they pay me back i get more then i need so i have a lot of money. I want a phone since it's my money but how do i tell my mom that and my dad my dad gets mad easily with a wrong anwser that i give him


1. I would talk to your mom about this issue and let her know whats up. Telling a trusted adult will help you figure out what to do. 2. Just bring it up to your mom! Tell her specific baby things you dont like and i'm sure she will listen. 3. Just bring it up casually. Ask what they would think about you having a phone. Then go from there. xoxo kerra

Um I don't think she meant that at all, author of this article. She seemed to want advice on how to make them STOP. I've been in her place before. None of what you suggested will probably help. There's nothing wrong with anyone but the kids who are making fun of her. They are just jealous, though. But personally, some advice to whoever asked this: don't take being called a nerd or geek as an insult. No one calls an idiot a nerd or a geek. If you're called one of those, obviously you're smart, which is more important than being "popular" or having tons of friends, particularly ones who make fun of you for being smart. Stick with your friends who don't make fun of you.

by HogwartsStudent on 1/10/2012 4:34:46 PM


first of all i think she meant how can i get them to stop making fun of me second it sounds like there blaming it on her for not trying to make friends maybe she tried and they made fun of here which sucks

by sparkle and shop on 1/10/2012 3:23:52 PM


Okay, so my friends always tell secrets right in front of me then talk about them for days and won't tell me what they're talking about. I have never told anyone's secrets before, and I don't understand how they could be so rude. Is there anything I can do or say? Thank you!


Hey girly,


You need to let your friends know how you feel. They are totally not respecting you and you need to calmly tell them this and give them a chance to fix it.

Ugh... I know how that feels Frown Once I was reading vampire diaries with my friends and some guys called us geeks just because it was a big book!

Hey girls! This is Kayla9, and I wanted to let you know that I give advice on:
-Making money
-Books and writing
-Feeling good
-Baking and cooking
And anything you can possibly think of!!! Just comment on my profile and I will get back to you ASAP.
XOXO, Kayla

by kayla9 on 1/10/2012 2:03:38 PM


This is the same situation, however we're not all in the same classes and some of us like performing etc..

Yesterday we got called "geeks" for discussing paradox's. Seriously, what's wrong with talking about a paradox?

by xaddalyn on 1/10/2012 12:06:51 PM


You really shouldn't worry! Either you can ignore them or, if you want to be friends, show them that you're just a normal chick!
I was bullied for years because I was smart. I decided not to change myself, and now I have a bunch of cool friends, my grades are good, and I have the time of my life!

It'll all work out!

by Moira1999 on 1/10/2012 9:59:33 AM


How come my MOD wasn't answered?

Hey girly! I've answered all the questions posted since 9 p.m. Maybe yours got lost? If you post it again, I'll answer it Smile

MOD MOD!! hey, im have to get glasses. But i am afraid i will look dorky in them. Any advice? Thanks. Coldplay12

Hey chica! "Nerdy" glasses are now trendy, actually! If you look at stores like Urban Outfitters and others, lots carry big, black-rimmed, fake glasses. So, you can totally look cool in them! Just make sure to find a pair that you love and that make you feel good about yourself.

MOD MOD MOD MOD! Okay, so I like this guy and I really want to be his get to know him...but I also really like him...but then I have this guy that likes me and I like him as ONLY a friend nothing more. And I really want to be the 2nd guys friend, but the one problem I like the 1st guy who doesn't know I'm alive, and I want to get to know him. I guess my main questions are: What do I need to do to not lead on the 2nd guy but still be his friend? How can I be the other guys friend without letting the part of me that really likes him get in the way? And How can I quit stressing over what they think...and what everybody else thinks?



Hey girly girl! As for your friend who likes you, make sure that you're not giving off the wrong signals. If he wants to hang out, you can make sure that you're in a group setting, to make it less awkward. And if he asks you out, be honest with him about how you feel... as hard as that is. Let him know that you really care about him as a friend, but kind of have your eye on someone else at the moment. As for your crush, do you know of anything that he likes? Like a sports team, band, etc.? If so, use that as an icebreaker. Or, is he in a club at school? Ask him how to join. Does he play a sport? Compliment him on his most recent performance. And if you have any mutual friends, recruit them to introduce you! Smile

Sounds Juss like me! ahah everybody makes fun of me in my friends for being smart and weird. But really nobody will give us a chance . . . I mean really! Everyone makes their impressions on us and uses us to help get their work done It's NO fair!!! But I'm fine with being me. So there's that. Oh yeah I have my Gifted class tomorrow! yay Smile)
But honestly I got in when i was in 1st grade and I have like no idea why I'm in there cuz I really am not smart at all I'm just creative haha

by phoebeloren00 on 1/9/2012 10:36:27 PM


I go to a magnet school, so we're all nerds. It's actually really fun. haha. Embrace your geekiness!!!

by raininghippos on 1/9/2012 10:16:01 PM


Sounds a lot like me..except my friends are the ones that tease me. It only happens every once in a while, and I know they are joking, but it still hurts.

by 98Snickers on 1/9/2012 9:56:12 PM


I just want this to be easy in fast. In movies and TV shows, there is always a "popular girl" and she NEVER has glasses!! I have glasses, but I consider myself popular!! Although, I DO fear of boring my besties with talk of my fave subjects like politics and history and stuff. Anywhos, I also don't enjoy that stupid text language that people use like, "hey wen r u gonna b here" and stuff like that. I'm pretty talented (I guess), and VERY cool. But, still. I just don't wanna be cursed to be a nerd or geek all because I wear glasses. I have a friends who has glasses AND braces, and she's VERY cool, and, well, might have more friends than me!! Anyways, are people supposedly cursed of nerd and geek-ocidy for wearing glasses?

Hey there chica! There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with wearing glasses. Glasses most definitely do not make you geeky. I just got a new pair of glasses and have had people stop me in the street telling me that they like them! Hollywood isn't always very accurate when it comes to portraying real life, so I wouldn't put too much stock into movies and TV.

by fearless;) on 1/9/2012 8:49:12 PM


I'm in the same program, so people are always like, "whoaa so your like super smart?" and its totally annoying. for a while i tried saying i was dumb and didnt know why i was even in the program...DONT do that. just go up to them and say, yeah, im smart, but so what? let em know u dont care what they think and theyll leave u alone(:

by heyygurly321 on 1/9/2012 8:46:31 PM


Sounds like me.

by ellie hills on 1/9/2012 8:35:49 PM


Hey whadaya know?! That sounds like me!...except I'm the only one in my class...!

by HelenaPS on 1/9/2012 8:31:27 PM


I know just how you feel! I'm in the gifted program too, and I'm so sick of people always getting annoyed at my good grades. I'm (not really) sorry, but if you don't like that my grades are better than yours, maybe try studying and working a little bit harder? Just food for thought...
