    Popularity comes and goes. People make comments and spread rumors about anything and everything.

    Friendships can last lifetime.

    It is up to you as to which means more. Which choice makes you feel better about yourself?

    I had a male friend at school, and there were many rumours we were dating. When someone asks, just say no. Don't let it bother you. If you show that it's bothering you, these people will want to taunt you more, as they'll get entertainment because it's annoying you.

    Don't try to be popular. The ones that were popular at my school are now jobless, had babies at 16, and are single parents. Concentrate on studies

    You know if you stop talking to him, it just shows what kind of a weak person you are.
    This means that being a real person does not matter to you cause you are just focused on being popular
    Which then does not make you different (and a good person) from the rest.
    Who knows he might be the bestest friend you might ever get? I don't think it is wise to do something like that!
    Think of it! Will you feel good hurting him and plus not being yourself?
    As a "REAL" person, friendship should matter to you the most then impressing people (the wrong kind of people who are fake and just look down to another person but themselves)..
    Keep it real,stay unique,stay beautiful in and out!

    Why would you not date him? If he is your friend,( not that you should date friends) but if he is worth having as a friend, if he is a person of value, what is the issue.

    You are saying you would not, because of what others are saying, how sad, that you allow opinions of others stop or affect friendships.

    People who will talk about you, or make fun of you, will always find something or someone to do it to. They are the ones that have little value and the ones you don't want to be with.
