Dear Pud,

What makes popular kids popular?

Simply put, the popular kids are the ones who most exemplify whatever trait their particular group holds sacred.

For example, the most popular jock is usually football quarterback. The most popular girl in the “good looking” crowd is … the best looking. The most popular kid amongst the goths has the longest, blackest hair and attempted suicide a few times. The most popular kid in the math club is the best mathlete. 🙂 And so on.

Some kids don’t fit into groups and are outcasts. If that’s you, here’s the good news: outcasts are a group too! Organize them into their own social circle. Throw a party and invite just the weirdos, even if it’s just 4 or 5 people. You might even become the most popular, but either way, high school will be a lot more fun.

It was for me.

    Interesting advice… But one thing you failed to mention is alot of it has to do with how you portray yourself around everyone else. Everyone likes a confident person as long as they are not overly confident to the point of being cocky or arrogant.
