Dear Miss Popularity,
I’m sorry it’s been a rocky transition. Instead of thinking in terms of popularity, work on making a good friend or two. Don’t wait for others to initiate conversations. Say hi, dole out compliments, and sign up for clubs and activities.

It's totally ok! I know how u feel. I was so incredibly popular last year in 6th grade but now in 7th i'm not so little miss popular anymore. Plus you don't have to be known by everyone anyway. Just find a nice group of girls elsewhere.
by Jadenbieber19 on 1/31/2011 9:34:40 PM
um you can't really expect to be popular everywhere you move and i was popular once but now i'm not and you have to except that all you have to do is make some friends and you will not evev care anymore!!!

Miss Poupularity, honestly i think being the girl with the best clothes or hair is over reted. some populars are nice some are referred 2 as the wicked witch of the west. just stay true to yourself and dont give up. im a whole different story. im in so much extra cirriculum i know almost every kid in my school. even though i kno lots of people i still dont fit in with the popular. believe me i do kno what ur going thru.

ummmm.... i hope you know that you can be popular in certain.. uh, cliques, i guess, im not popular with the kids in lots of sports, but with the music geeks, im like everyones best friend.
by tessi13 on 12/14/2010 12:28:19 PM
Some responses sound slightly... conceited. I don't mean to sound rude, or offend others for that matter, however, some of the girls posting comments are flaunting their popularity, while also claiming to be a 'nerd'. Some people are actually contradicting themselves... This is mostly because some are saying that they are 'the most fashionable and pretty person in your grade who is also coincidentally popular' (putting yourself on a pedestal... odd) and later saying that you don't think you are better than others, when you actually said it.. And calling yourself a nerd and popular, when nerds aren't popular (stereotypes suggest this--a nerd is one! =)People say that 'you earn it', but I didn't see anyone telling the girl how she can get some friends, which seems to be what she needs right now. Tell her how she CAN earn popularity. Sure, she said it as if she were a queen bee, but let's be here for her. We're all friends here, right? ;]
Just a food for thought.

R U SERIOUS? "RIGHTFUL PLACE" ! BEING "POPULAR" ISN'T EVERYTHING! WHATS YOUR DEFINITION OF "POPULAR"? DOES IT MEAN HAVING MORE FRIENDS? IF IT MEANS HAVING A BIG SOCIAL LIFE, AND A LOT OF FRIENDS...THEN MAYBE U SHOULD MAKE SOME! NO ONE HAS A RIGHTFUL PLACE!IN THIS WORLD... U HAVE TO MAKE STUFF HAPPEN. U WANNA BE POPULAR, BE POPULAR. U WANNA ACT HELPLESS AND SORRY FOR YOUR SELF, THEN DO THAT. BE OUTGOING! SOMEONE'S GOING TO WANT TO BE YOUR FRIEND. I BET YOUR AN OKAY PERSON.

Not all popular girls are preppy. Thats a total sterotype. Im really popular at my school and I hate when people think i think im all that, when I know Im not. and popularity isnt everything. When i used to be not so popular i used to think that, but now I know Disney Channel and Nickelodeon makes people look bad when that is really offensive to popular girls.
by bestestkym on 12/10/2010 8:46:19 PM
I am not trying to yell at you, i hate popular girls that are all YAY IM PRETTY SO IM BETTER THAN YOU?! those are preps, your upset about not being around girls who are to conserned on their looks, to keep their grades up. Worry about grades,im popular because i have lots of friends, and they dont talk about be behind my back.
by Alex924 on 12/10/2010 7:27:11 AM
Girl, I am a nerd and proud of it! Your RIGHTFUL PLACE??? Who said you had any "right" to be popular? "Popular" is a status, a label. Who cares about your status? You want to be known as the nice, open girl that has a lot of friends. That's who I am at my school and I'm respected for it, even though I am a nerd and was born to be a nerd. I don't wear makeup, I'm your average jeans-tee-sneakers and nothing-special kind of gal... and I'm still well-liked and respected. Relax, smile, and talk to people! Be welcome and open to new people. That's what people will really remember.
by jo_crox on 12/9/2010 12:18:15 AM
girl, if you're a true popular, you'll be popular no matter where you go. changing schools CANNOT make you change your status if you're really the best. Maybe you weren't "popular" material after all!
by miki_amu_1fan on 12/8/2010 10:42:09 PM
People have asked a lot of Secret Santa questions, asking what they should get their girlie. Well we're doing Secret Santa at my lunch table and I'm making sugar snowmen for my friend!
by sleepytween12 on 12/8/2010 10:16:10 PM
same thing happened to me, but its ok becuase then you make REAL friends who don't care about your social status, or the designer clothes you wear, or the type of house you live in, or what care your parents drive. you have the oppurtunity to make real friends
by dancer10196 on 12/8/2010 10:02:49 PM
Your on FREAKIN RIGHTFUL PLACE?!?! Girl, being popular you EARN. I'm a proud nerd but I'm the most stylish and pretty person and popular girl in my grade. Does that mean I think of myself as better than ANYONE ELSE???? NO. I earned it. I DON'T WEAR ANY MAKEUP and I have a good personality and STYLE. You earn popularity, you work for it. I just happened to be one of those lucky people.
Nerds are AWSOME. You can get into a good school. But don't change yourself that's the WORST thing you could do.

def a hard transition, just try being friendly and hopefully ull make good friends, and who knows, u mite b popular again
of course ppl r different so acting the way u use to may not make u popular here, thats what happened to me
by love.hannah on 12/8/2010 8:24:41 PM
i just start randomly talking to people starting with kinda small talk at first if they sit near me then we start being friends its pretty cool
by BlackDragon on 12/8/2010 8:07:42 PM
i feel a bit bad for you. but if you truely do believe you like you new friends, you should stick by there side and embarace your inner nerd. (that was what happened to me.) you shouldn't worry about being popular just because you were old school.

by chewcharm on 12/8/2010 6:32:03 PM
i do feel kinda bad for you. i know what it feels like to feel out of place, being a proud "dork" myself. but i think it would help if you stopped thinking of your "rightful place" in popularity. i mean, when you start thinking like that, maybe it's time to step back and just focus on having fun, so you don't become one of the dreade "popular girls". it'll all work out though! (take it from the dork )

Honestly, your first mistake is that you feel you have a "rightful place in the social hierarchy." This isn't Ye Olde England, we don't get things by divine right. Life is about working, if you EXPECT people to like you, then you're setting yourself up to be pretty unlikeable. Friendship is a two way street, you should try to meet someone half way.

by cherrypop101 on 12/8/2010 11:12:13 AM
Um okay your RIGHTFUL PLACE??? REALLY!!?? Maybe its a sign that you've become less popular because you needed to learn that it shouldn't matter to you all that much...,
