Ask Lucky: Popular Peeps Say I'm Hanging With Losers
I ’m in a new school, and a popular girl told me the people I hang out with are losers. They’re nice, but I don’t want to be labeled the dorky new girl. I never cared before what people thought, but now I do!
Anyone who has seen Mean Girls knows there are serious downsides to popularity. “Popular” girls often resort to cruel tactics to demonstrate their so-called superiority. This might not be the case with the girl at your school, but she did call your current friends “losers.” Not the nicest.
Like Lindsay Lohan’s character, you could be invited into the popular crowd, only to later get pushed out and left without real friends. So choose friends based on qualities you think are important, not according to the cafeteria seating. Find girls who are loyal, fun, interesting and caring. True pals give you much more happiness than a glimmer of popularity.
