Right now a rumor is going around school that's true about me.One of my closest friends told it to the wrong person and soon the whole school will think I'm a slut.Knowing these people they are going to twist the truth and make it far worse then it really is and then tell everyone....hopefully my so-far good reputation might make them not believe it....and hopefully they believe me when i tell them that it's for a medical reason....today was a bad day....and my favorite guy-friend that gives the best hugz was absent and other guy-friend that also gives good hugz wasn't around when the shit hit the fan.God i need a hug from both of them.I would kick this girls ass but she's been my friend for so long i don't think i can do it.The most I could bring myself to do was slam her against the wall infront of everybody and yelling and screaming cuss words at her asking her WTF she was thinking when she told those people.It wasn't enough...she is afraid of me now...i jumped up when she turned the corner and slamed her against the wall REALLY hard...right before she came i was sitting quietly(something i never do, i'm a very loud and outgoing person) and then i saw her and jumped up and attacked her...scared the shit out of her...after that she ran away...far away...why did she do this to me?

People like to stir up shit because their own lives aren't interesting enough for them. My school was the rumor capital of Ohio, but I thankfully never had any about me.

*Truth*
People talked about me at my old job even 2 years after I stopped working there. I thought that was pretty impressive that people I didn't even know were telling stories about me.

Secondly, if it's true, it's not a rumor.

*Sarcasm*
I cry myself to sleep every night because peopel spread rumors about me. What other peopel think is so important and if shallow people say bad things about me, I want to commit suicide. :rolleyes:

1- the bitch aint your friend if she told someone else
2- smack her so hard in front of everyone. smack her till her teeth fall out she she cant talk anymore.
3- shes probibly jealous.
4- so fucking what let them talk who really gives a shit. do all those ppl. really mean so much to you. the opinions of ppl that should matter are the ones who are the closest to you. the ones who know you best.
but like i said you should smack her teeth out of her mouth that would teach her a good leasson

i guess since your guy friends aren't around for ya then i am :hug2:

people are jus trying to make their lives better by screwing up someone else's...i think that's why bully's do what they do

my so called 'friends' back in highschool did the same thing to me...picked on me, teased me, made jokes at me...and yet they always said they were just playing around..
i haven't seen any of them since graduation a year ago and i don't really care

basically in school i didn't tell anyone anything about me...i was a quiet person, they didn't have anything to say about me, but they were always able to joke around...i only got pissed off when they started making up stuff...that gets really irritating

the only thing i can think of in this situation may not be the best thing, but spread something about her around and see how she likes it
""do unto others as they have done to you"" i don't know how it exactly goes..

I like to spread nasty rumors, esp about myself. It is funny as hell, because I dont GIVE A FUCK. In high school I had my best friend tell everyone that I ran away and was a hooker in LA. when actually I was staying with my grandma for the summer. It was funny as hell.

Alright... fucking people up is not the answer, first of all.

People talk. I'm sure you've spread your fair share of "rumors" yourself. If I were you, I'd make sure not to die 1,000 deaths before your "final moment."

Sometimes its the people that are closest to us are the ones who are the first ones to betray. I'm sorry that she did this to you, it wasnt right, don't fight back because you are angry, that makes people think that its getting to you and they can make it worse, just act like it doesn't matter, it might be harder then it sounds but, you'll start to feel better

yea, i know how u feel.. hey, if these peeps are teasing u cause of wat some1 else said, well then they obvuiosly dont give a shit about ur feelings, or anyone elses for that matter. i kno, popularity is a bitch, but popularity is also overated, i mean, so wat if these peeps like you just because ur popular.. wouldnt u rather have freinds that care 4 u, ones that are freind 4 WHO u r not WAT uve done...hold ur head up high, take their insults and use it 4 fuel and strength, as far as the so called "freind" well, it looks like she is no freind of urz

uhm...what exactly did you do...or what kind of medical problem would cause for you to be a slut.....??just wondering...
as for your problem with the rumors going around.....a few years from now when youre in college...youll look back and laugh...you will realize that high school is the pinnacle of hipocracy...that most ppl go there to socialize[sp]...its all about the looks...who fucks who...whos the jock..and whos the head cheerleader ...the parties and all that bullshit....im not saying there is anything wrong with that....its just not who ppl really are....you dont wanna wake up 10yrs from now and say that....that is you....you are who you are because because HS made you that way...wise up..violence does not fix anything..unless its in a kiddie pool with baby oil and both of you are topless....in which case you would take pics and post them on here....in all seriousness...you need to be mature about this and just talk to her...if you dont wanna remain friends...dont...just go about it in a mature way...

Haha. "That girl's a slut." "I know, man. Lets go talk to her!"

In all seriousness, its just highschool. I know it sounds like an eternity, but rumors die faster than the people who tell them.

here's the bottom line.

if you want a secret kept, keep it. you make it public knowledge by telling somone else. how can you set a rule ("it's a secret") and then immediately break the rule ("here's the secret")? it invalidates the whole process of secrecy.

2) you handled yourself extremely poorly. you let an emotional response dictate your logical response. learn from that.

3) some people (i learned this the hard way, too, with my dorm roommate my freshman year) have this particular insecurity: they want to make it known to others that they are more "in the loop" than you are. this involves spreading people's secrets. if you're an information hub, people look up to you.

answer? don't tell her things you want kept secret.

here's what i've been doing for a long time: in my tightest circle of friends, i'll tell one friend one secret, then the next friend the next secret, etc, if i think any of my secrets won't fuck my life up were they to get out into the open (certain things, everyone eventually learns to keep to themselves). that way, when person B knows the secret i told person A, i know i can't tell any more secrets to person A.

Excellent. Thanks for putting that in perspective. I think that's a rep point we need to get in order.
