Are you popular (anywhere)? Are you not popular? Do you simply not care?

Not really. I used too when I was much younger, but now I simply can't stand most of my male classmates, they're so dumb and immature, and most are wannabe gangsters. I'm pretty popular with the girls(in a non-romantic manner) and I'm always hanging out with them.

I am not popular, but honestly I couldn't care less.

I hang out with the popular kids, but I myself am not particularly popular in the definition of having a lot of friends or being well-liked by the general populous of my school.
[/I'm kind of the headstrong person who can be nice if I like you, but am a complete arse if I don't like you. Therefore, most of the people I don't like, naturally don't like me either.]
I personally am the type who cares about certain things, and I strive to fit into the social demands of hanging out with the people I do. As for making multitudes of people like me however, I have long given up on that, because I just have a bad personality and I don't like hanging out with people outside of school. xD [/it's a hassle]

Back in the day, I could have been considered reasonably popular, but I just didn't give a damn.

I never really was the popular kid at school; I had my small circle of friends and that was enough for me. I've been at the height of popularity at times in my life; and in the pit of solitude at other times and I think it's really about what makes you happy. Enough friends that you can give them all the love and affection they deserve without neglecting them? I think that's the winning formula.

Nope. Not popular. But of course, I don't care if I am or not. xD Just as long as I have my little group of friends~

I don't care, and really it's been a non-issue since early high school. I don't even think there exists such a thing as popularity on a college campus. Or maybe I'm just too sheltered, who knows.

I guess I'd considered myself popular.
I have a wide variety of friends, but honestly, I don't know what makes someone popular anymore.

I don't care about popularity...I'm content with the way my high school years went and I'm content with the friends I have now, so any social hierarchy means nothing to me.

Neither one nor the other, I have my group of friends an' stuff, but I'm not interested in being popular. I'm fine like that.

It depends where you live and sometimes your gender.
In a first world country, if you're naturally popular because of the way you look then you're set for life. Some people work their ass off to gain their popularity and that ain't such a good life.
People in third world countries that don't care about popularity are more satisfied with their life than most people in countries like American and Britain etc..
Popularity does matter I guess, sometimes at school I say a joke and everyone says you're not funny, then a popular kid says the same joke 5 min later and now you have the comedian of the century.
