Dear Poll: Are You Considered the Popular Girl?

Katherine Heigl was named one of EW's Most Popular Stars of 2007 and she looks to be wearing her title well. Back in school, there was always such an emphasis placed on popularity and it's pretty clear that being the "it" girl still matters, especially in Hollywood. Since not much has changed since high school I have to ask: Are you considered one of the popular girls or do you fly under the radar?

I was always considered too shy to be popular. I liked sitting back and watching what everyone else got up to. I always felt like I was in the middle - not popular but not unpopular.

I'm around a smaller group of friends now.everyone is married and have children now. some i am still close with, while some have that hubby/baby-daddy/mother-in-law/snotty step-kid/kiddies drama that i don't have a lot of patience for. but with those i am around i am popular. if i miss an event or work, 20 ppl call me making sure i'm alive. i'm like, "am i entitled to stay at home and do nothing/be sick???"
I am everyone's friend in the "in-crowd", but refuse to get together with everyone at once. I'd rather be the people they come see when they don't feel like going out with 20 other people to get wasted. Big crowds annoy me, and sometimes embarass me.

i have had a weird transition where i was the super popular girl in middle school. high school, i was friends with the popular girls but never really hung out with them out of school. in university, i dont find there is a really big popular crowd because i go to one of the biggest universities in north america, however ya there are some people that have more happening social lives...i would say mine aint that happenin atm.

I am definitely not an introvert, but i was not part of "the" popular crowd in high school.

I was never, and am not popular...I am not an introvert, I just find that the majority of people are kind of fake, and I agree with k8 rckstr, I would have rather have less friends who are the real thing, than 20 plastic dolls who serve no purpose in this world... Also, popularity means fashionabilty, and if I wake up tomorrow morning to find myself in fashion I shall kill myself.

i'm not popular, but i'm not an introvert. i like to classify myself and my friends as just being outside that system. (is that what the losers say? oh well, i guess it shows :-p)

I don't know how to answer this one. I spend a lot of time with the people from dancing and I like going out. It's just a big group where everybody gets to know everybody else, but I wouldn't say there's a popularity aspect to it.

i was in college, but honestly it was exhausting. it was important to me (who knows why) that i have a certain college experience. i did it and now i'm done with that. i don't have the time or energy to keep up with everyone and everything.

I peaked in popularity in 8th grade and it was all downhill from there. Which wasn't a bad thing, it was a deliberate choice. I didn't like the pressure of people looking to me to tell them what was cool, or to entertain them, or whatever. From high school until now I've been pretty much the same... I have a few close friends, all in different "groups" and that suits me just fine.

Since I'm only graduating high school this year, I can clearly say that: no, I'm not the "it" girl at my school, but I'm happy with who I am. But, I have a lot of friends and am extremely extroverted. I talk to everyone, love to make people smile, and I'm not afraid of talking to anyone. I'm just that Luna Lovegood, eccentric girl who waves to everyone in the halls! :3

Popular as in alot of different friends, yeah. i always find someone to talk to in the day whether it be nerds or the gays, as we like to call them. But too-much-makeup it girl? nah. and id rather not be, theyre all skanks. well, 99 percent of them.

Everybody knew me but i had no idea they who they were... For years i just spoke to everybody no matter who they were, hung out with many different ppl. Sometimes when I spoke to ppl I would not really bother to remember their names ( to many ! ) and seriously though i was under the radar as i never had a lot of ppl around me ... i found out the last year of school that everyone knew who i was and i had no idea, i just though no one cared ! So sometimes, I’m walking down the street and I can see someone looking at me really hard and I’m thinking “ oh crap… were did I see him/her before ?? Just act like you remember !!” I also notice that this kind of thing continues even after school. In my professionnal life, I guess i tend to stick out because after a while, everyone knows who i am and i'm just supprised everytime!

Nice call Bella! I would say I was a popular introvert too. I do have a lot of fun going out friends, but only very few dear friends that really know me. I think it is good to be a little bit of both.

What if you're a popular introvert? ;)

I was never in the "in crowd" at school only because I wanted a few close friends instead of like 20 friends and also because I have a quirky sense of humor about me that most people take as bitchy or odd. It's still the same now. I am more comfortable with my closest, dearest friends than a large crowd of people.

Hmmm now that I'm a little older, to tell you the truth, i don't even care! I got lots of great freinds and family and I never feel lonely and that's good enough for me :)

I went through waves of popularity. Some years I was, some years I wasn't. But overall I just tried to be the bubbly, funny, optimistic, and realistic person that I know I've always been.

I was never that girl in school who was really pretty and was in THE group, but I've always made friends easily and gotten along with everyone.
