Poll: Are you Popular irl? (30 votes)

Yes 27%
No 73%

a popular person is someone that everyone likes or respects. someone that's a ladies man/or all the guys want or want to be. someone that has a ton of friends obviously. and of course someone that is attractive and is a smooth talker. is that you? doubt it

No.

Though I'm thinking of making shitty music so I can impress the ladies.

I was, before I started to lose my mind.

the opposite actually.

No, I was born in the wrong state and the wrong era.

I graduated high school almost 10 years ago, 'popularity' doesn't mean anything when you're an adult. Am I a likable guy who gets along with everyone? Why yes, yes I am.

I used to be... now I'm just average because I stay indoors more often now and I'm reluctant to have myself be exploited. I'm still very liked by others and they enjoy my presence, although I don't do much to create that. It's like being a mysterious super hero and the ladies want to know you more but you never give in.

I'm not popular in the sense that everyone wants to be my friend, but I get along with everyone I meet.

#11 Posted by SaintLeonidas (26275 posts) -

Rather warped definition of "popular" you got there...

getting along with everyone or being nice to people is more important. Not everyone got this quality :)

No.

I'm a big homebody that barely leaves my house when I'm not at work or going to the gym.

I was more popular when I drank, but that ended a few years ago.

I alienate almost everyone I know/once knew so...

I genuinely don't give my social life any significant thought.

That's the attitude!

No, and I like it that way.

#18 Edited by ferrari2001 (16925 posts) -

Nope, once I graduated from college my friends group was reduced to just a handful. I can tell you now, it's much better that way. It leads to better more full friendships rather than having a ton of buddies who I know I won't see after graduation anyways.

irl? Nope.
Probably not even popular on here ether. :P

#21 Posted by johnd13 (8145 posts) -

I've only got like 8 friends who I spend time with. Rarely talk or socialize with other people. And that's the way I prefer it.

#22 Posted by spike6958 (4794 posts) -

I don't want to be anymore. I find every time I let someone get close to me, I get betrayed, or abandoned. Now I make sure that doesn't happen, to the point where if I find someone seems to like me, I go out of my way to make them hate me, or at least lose interest.

No I am not popular and I do not try to be.

When I was in middle school I was. I'm a guy though.

I had just moved to a new school, and I really hated it to where I'd become really angry with going to school.

I started caring less and less about everything, and for some reason people wanted to talk to me, play sports with me, one jock even came up to me on the bleachers one time, and we just sat there looking at all the hot girls.

One cute girl wanted me to come sit with her and her friends during lunch, which I never did because I didn't care about anyone, another girl even wrote about how cute I was in a note

I even had a girlfriend, with a huge boobs, she was pretty damn hot, and grown looking.

So I was basically playing a "hard to get, too good for you" attitude, when all I wanted was to...not be at school. But then I made real friends, and by then, I seemed to fit in.

If you want to be popular, just stop caring about everything and do things without being scared at all, in an outgoing way, I saw this pattern of behavior in High School with popular kids.

Remember this too, YOU DONT HAVE TO BE GOOD LOOKING, trust me, in my opinion, I wasn't the best looking guy. I straightened out A LOT though hehe.

And there was an even more popular kid that was dead ugly, so it's all about the power of personality......if you wanna call it that.

But I'll never forget the Asian girl who always said hi to me in the hall way...shoulda made her my girlfriend (sigh)

#26 Posted by lostrib (37031 posts) -

Probably not, but I'm also no longer in High school so I don't really give a shit

#27 Posted by Braun_Roid_Rage (720 posts) -

I was back in school, & now yeah still am. Played sports all through school. I know my opinions aren't though on here but I don't care, it's whatever.

#28 Posted by yokofox33 (29700 posts) -

I'm generally well-liked by my friends and co-workers, but in actual social interactions I'm not so popular. I'm not a ladies man nor am I "cool" enough to hang with "cool" people. It is what it is. I'm just an average guy I suppose.

#29 Posted by Lowtcp (9 posts) -

such a thing does not exist. Everyone may think that of others, because they only see them when they're conversing with someone,

but unless you are the upper echelon of hot, or rich, you're normal like the rest of us.

Everyone generally likes me, but this does not make me popular. just friendly.

btw, Snugaz said you need 500 posts to not get your threads locked? How come I was able to make one though. (a thread)

#30 Posted by Lowtcp (9 posts) -

to the assholes, how do you take what you want when you have to reject everything?

isn't that kind of silly/ends up being counter-productive? The reason it works though is 'cuz though mean, you walked and acted like you OWNED the place.

And likely started many confrontations. You were then in sense more alive than the 'nie' guy who *sigh* was just nice to everyone and let them do what they want. Which is stupid too.

But still owning the place like an asshole >> kindness and patience.

At least as far as attention and perhaps some insecure random pussy that you kind of have to reject.

Nice & Clingy NEVER works too though. Man this world is weird/sucks with this paradigm. Don't we want a collective population of nice guys and girls?

In high school, I was in the middle. I was in between popular and being a total geek. Wasn't a ladies man but I got respected by the popular guys and some of the popular girls. The guys would often come up to me to talk and the popular girls would usually say hi to me in the halls. I'm pretty sure it was because my hair was long and curly and they loved to touch, play, and even braid it at times. They would offer to braid it for free because I would always say no lol. That was pretty much it though man, I never dated a popular girl or any girl in high school though I wish I had asked some out. Sometimes they would mess with me by asking if I would ever date them or their friends. I never knew how to answer so I would laugh and blush and ask them to quit joking around lol. I was never a smooth talker either. I wouldn't be able to charm a girl if my life depended on it. I did always talk to them during gym class though since we would hardly dress for P.E. We'd talk about music, hair (usually MY hair), and shit like that, does that make me a smooth talker?

I mostly just hung out with the "rocker" group who was into rock and metal music. At this time, there was no gamer group since gamer pretty much registered to everyone at this point. I used to be in the high school drumline so a lot of the BAND would hang out with me as well. I also liked talking to the people that HS people would call the nerds or geeks. They were easier to talk to and easier to befriend so, I didn't mind hanging out with them either.

I never was but I don't give a fuck, I'm in college now and mostly care for passing my classes.

#33 Posted by hippiesanta (9867 posts) -

I'm popular without trying too hard ...... my former house use to be a place where friends or friensa of another friends hang out, smoke, drink and socialise ... but when I move to another town due to a new career with different type of humans with cheap attitude..... new faces doesn't help much .... I turn into a sour uninspirational person and a monster

I don't mind nice & clingy people because they can comprehend stop bothering me. Asshole & clingy people are the worse that they think they own the place and expect you to be clingy towards them.

@hippiesanta: Word I'm similar here.

I've found once you get a bit older, you realize there are no "popular" people, just people you like and people you don't. I guess I would fall in the range of more people liking me than not.

#38 Posted by 255Utah (5613 posts) -

I was never popular in my life, and I definitely wouldn't be famous anytime soon! That is not my plan I like the way how I live live my life. X3

"is that you? doubt it"

surprised no ones addressed this part of TC's post.

#40 Posted by Chow_Mein_Kampf (6651 posts) -

@konvikt_17:

I know...........What a presumptive person TC is..........

On topic, I'm aquainted with lots of people.

If you mean "cool", I never really considered that the term described me........

There comes a time when you stop caring about that pointless shit........The sooner the better too.......

#41 Posted by ShepardCommandr (2689 posts) -

I am a total loser

#42 Posted by gamerguru100 (10629 posts) -

@one_plum: LOL

And no, I'm not popular in real life. I never was and probably never will be.

#43 Posted by Kevlar101 (6144 posts) -

My social life is a dark void.

Though, I can't really complain. I have two best friends and they are both amazing so i'm happy.
