The Dark Side

In school, everyone strives to be popular. to be liked by everyone.



but why?
So you can be involved; in all the drama of being popular.
So you can have amazing friends; the fake kind.
So you can go to sick parties; where you drink and get high.
So you have someone to tell your problems to; so they can go spread it around the school.
So you can have people to guide you; convincing you to ditch the last class, take one more shot, smoke the last bit of weed.
So people will like you; or pretend to, anyways.
So you can be put in place; and made how they want you to be.
So you don't have to deal with relationships; all the guys would just want to get in your pants.

I don't really agree that it's just the populars. Things like this happen in every clique. I am one of the kids that kinda talks to everyone even if they're from different cliques and tings like this happen in all of them.

Wow! I've been looking to read something loke this! It's the dirty truth. i really relate to this beacause at one time I wanted to be popular and I wanted everyone to like me and get invited to all the parties. But it's all fake and those people aren't your real friends.I totally agree with this article!

This was so moving. I love it, and can relate to it so well, sadly, because I've seen this happen to so many people, and almost to my best friend.

I thought this was one of the most accurate opinions I've ever heard. This is exactly what I think as well. The way you wrote it was awesome.
