How to Be The Most Popular Girl in School

Updated on August 14, 2013


Take the Test

Here is a little quiz to start the ball rolling please answer the questions and you will find your rating below.

  • 1) Are you the most beautiful girl in school?
  • 2) Are you wearing all of the latest fashion designer clothes?
  • 3) Is your hair sitting perfectly?
  • 4) Is your make up just right?
  • 5) Do you have the latest must have music in your IPod?
  • 6) Have you had your nails done in the past few days?

If you answered yes to all of the above questions (Well done!) you're looking good, but that won't help you much if you want to be the most popular girl in school.

If you answered no to any or all of the questions above (well done!), you don't have to be perfect in every way to be popular, unless you are a television character.

Before I get on to how to be the most popular girl in school I must warn you that being the most popular is hard work, and when you get the top dog position you would find it very difficult to stay there for long. You could compare it to a boxing career.

As a boxer you are constantly working, gaining strength, speed and stamina, and fighting different people every month or so until one day you get your chance to fight for the world title, as soon as you win the title you become the target of every other boxer in your weight group, they all want your title and they will do anything possible to try to take it away from you.

If you visit any school yard in any state or even in any country around the globe you will notice different groups of people hanging out together, the Cheerleaders, the jock's the geeks, the weirdo's and so on, everyone wants to be part of a group and when it comes down to the brass tacks everyone wants to be the well respected member of the group that everyone else in the group looks up to and turns to first if they have a problem.

How to be Popular

If you look up the word popular in the dictionary you will find results similar to the two below.

  1. regarded with favor, approval, or affection by people in general: a popular preacher.
  2. regarded with favor, approval, or affection by an acquaintance or acquaintances: He's not very popular with me just now.

In other words you want more friends, more people to like you, you want people to see you as a good person and a good friend.

Look at both definitions again, nowhere in them does it mention how you look, how you dress, or even how lovely your hair is, to be popular you don't have to be the best at everything, whether it be Athletics, Cheerleading, Mathematics or English.

The fact that you are reading this page leads me to believe that you lack a little confidence in yourself; you could be a little shy and a little bit lonely.

You want to make new friends but are nervous about approaching new people.

Building your confidence is difficult but with a little perseverance and patience you will become a different person.

Learn to love yourself, if you don't then you can't really expect other people to, join in other peoples conversations, smile and say hello when you pass other people, be a shoulder to cry on when someone needs it, offer advice if someone asks, have fun, join in activities, you will soon become a part of the group.

Cleanliness is next to Godliness, take care of your personal hygiene, no one wants to know you if you smell or look dirty, wash at least once every day and ensure a change of clothes every day.

Learn some jokes, but don't be the fool, although everyone likes the fool they are not taken seriously, be fun to be around and serious when the situation requires it.

If you are the type of person that complains about almost everything, then learn to control it, try to see the positives of any situation nobody likes a moaner.

Nasty people are not liked, never be a bully, never bitch about your friends, never backstab your friends, and most importantly never make your friends look foolish.

Be a good friend, ready to stand up and help your friends if they get into trouble, be there for them when they need you, always listen to what they have to say and always show your loyalty to them, this builds up trust in the group and soon you will be the first one people turn to when they need help.

You will soon climb the ranks in the group and people will love you for who you are.

You will also gain reputation throughout the school for being a good friend and other people will want to hang with you and your list of friends will grow and grow.

There really isn't a lot to it work on your self confidence, be the best person that you can be to yourself and to others and soon you will be the most popular girl in your group and if you want to, the most popular girl in the entire school.

      this was amazing and showed me what to do and I read some of the other comments which said what and what not to do. I also have some tips for you 1 be nice to your teacher 2 smile and wave to other people even if you don't know them.3 be kind don't let your differences make you think that your better then any body else, don't be mean.4 Pay attention in class so make sure you don't go day dreaming so the teacher calls on you an you don't know the answer and every body looks at you and you get embarrassed

      I don't think this is REALLY true, because I wasn't really nerdy in school, I was just the girl people ignored and no one really liked me, but I'm not going to lie I WAS mixed amongst the popular girls crew and ladies it's not all glitz and glamour. They aren't that great, being popular isn't that fun! Since I left my school for an alternative, I have become more fashionable then they are! And plus everything there is in school? Is a popularity contest, like Student Council? Good luck getting in if you're one of the mean girl's crew!! They WILL ditch you, and mistreat you. It's just how they are.

      I'm sorry but let's face reality. People who are nice and well known, at most schools aren't considered popular... It sucks but it's true. The popular girls at my school all have the same clothes, care way too much about their hair, and basically only talk about theirselves and other people. And on top of that, if you don't wear the clothes they wear, you are considered stupid and not worth while ..

      I really appreciate this advice it really did help. Yes, by the way you are right I am lacking a bit of confidence that I should have. The only reason I really looked at this article is because I am finding it hard to maintain my popularity and my grades at the same time. Last year I thought i was extremelly popular, but reading this article made me realize i really have not been popular yet, only a fool. Meaning im only that person that people like because im funny or weird. Im in the 7th grade so I geuss this type of concern is common? The worst part is my school definatlly is not normal. Right now our populars are either in High Achievers or The Trouble Makers. Im not a trouble maker what so ever and I only have 2 classes in High Achievers. In those 2 classes my friend and I talk. Thanks for the article, but my most important qeustion wasn't answered. How do you maintain popularity and grades at the same time?

      to be popular you need over 50 friends and you need to show respect and wear makeup if you can't wear makeup at school then talk about it not too much or you'll blow it you need to wear a school skirt and black tights and clip clops shoes and a clean blouse and a cardigan and you need blusher on and body lotion lip balm and perfume have a bath and make your har good as possible leave it down though and talk like a real nice girl

      Okay, I will try this for middle school, good advice, Jimmy! It's very good! I will practice this summer, and my last week at grade 5....

      Next, please write an article on what if there is a girl at school and she is trying to get into my group of me and my two other bffs and she is SO annoying and weird but she won't stop stalking me and my friends, and she bought my friends and me yo-yo's and cookies to be our friend but just because she is trying to show us that she is cool won't work, unless she has a good heart, which no offence but she doesn't and I have a feeling she talks about me to other people but uses me to get to my VERY popular friends and me! Help, good answers, please!

      If anyone is mean just keep being yourself and don't mind them. People only do these things because they are trying to stick out to be the ONE. Well they aren't the ONE, you are! I'm super popular and it's really hard sometimes... But if someone is mean I'll be sure they'll never come across a problem with me again. Being popular isn't always great as you would expect... I get stalked and touched and people are just homos. People at my school know me and I have no idea who they are! Just be yourself keep your passion and confidence and be the bigger person!

      Miranda 6 years ago

      I used to want to be popular but I now realize that there's more to life than everybody liking you, people have to realize that there's always going to be one guy that doesn't like you back, and one girl that thinks your stuck up, and one teacher who doesn't think your the smartest. Nobody is perfect and nobody has EVERYONE liking them, whether as a friend or a lover. So thinking like one day everyones going to like you, is not going to get you anywhere. But anyway, if you still want to be popular after reading this, goodluck:)

      Hey there!

      Oh, yes, I am nice and pretty, I smile to people and say hi! But how can I become more than ''Just Nice''? I want to be DA BEST! I am in year 8 and I want to be extremely popular, hot, and also ''GAWJUSS'' (I am gawjuss anyway) but I want to BE ''HOT, BEAUTIFUL, POPULAR, e.t.c'' all at the same time.

      Tnx for reading and plzzzz reply as quick as u can ;) xxxxx

      Right, I am not popular. I am pretty. And actually I am a very kind and nice person. I don't have millions of friends. I DO have mates but what I really want is to have these mates who will be happy if I'll hang out with 'em.

      This girl in my school is very popular, she has been hanging with me just for 1 week, but then she has gone to another group of girls, she hangs out with different people every week.

      I had a best friend, but we've broke up for some reason, and now she bosses me around and HATES me for some reason, she says nasty things to me, which I ignore or say to her ''Why don't you say something about me, you always have to say these things about yourself?!''.

      The thing why I am writing this, is because I want to be extremely popular! I want to be in a group of girls who won't boss me around and in which I won't feel left out. What can I do to make my dream come true?

      By the way, thanks, but this don't work as much as I thought it will :)

      Thank you for reading this, and please reply! :)

      Bye xxx

      I'm in 7th grade, and I do most of these things. The only problem is, IT DOESN'T WORK. The popular people don't like talking with me. They just say yeah okay whatev and start talking to their friends. I am semipopular but could be more popular. My problem is I hang out with the geeky weirdos and every1 thinks I am crazy. But they are the best friends in the world and i would never ditch them. The boys only like me as a friend, and i have never been asked out, even though i know some boys have liked me. I am pretty, smart, and funny. What is my problem? Why can't i be popular?

      Everybody hates me at my school. I am horribly ugly, my nose is always red, i have bumps all over my face and zits that won't go away!!

      I get straight F's and people called me dumb for liking a movie star from Star Wars Mark Hamill aka Luke and I barely have anything, just a stupid track phone when everyone else has iPhones, iPods, everything! They even have pets like puppies and turtles. My friend Mackenzie is SO rich she gets EVERYTHING best hair, handwriting, school stuff, in swimming, EVERYONE calls her beautiful, and the MOST popular girls ask her to hang out with them. I'm so dumb how can i be popular?

      Well, I'm definetely not the most popular girl but I have a ton of friends, I made homecoming court over one of the most popular girls and I'm known as the nicest cheerleader. and guess what's funny about this? I do not flirt with every male in the room, I'm nice to everyone because no one is better and I don't care if I'm extremely popular or not. No offense but some of you sound conceited, especially you middle schoolers. When you get to high school or college watch out. With that attitude no one will want to be your friend. Just have fun and love everyone! I have people who I've never met that hate me because qoute 'im a cheerleader so I'm automatically a hoe'. Do I care? Nahh. *btw I stumbled on this when I was looking up cheerleading stuff and I meant to click the website under, but I saw some comments and I had to something* but seriously, if you had to read this is "become popular".......then wow. :) peace!

      so since everyone is writing their own story, im going to go on and tell you mine, well, not MINE, oh yeah im a 17 year old girl, a junior in highschool right now. So where was i? oh. yes. so the story is not mine its actually my neightbor's lets call her... Samantha (no names for safety reasons) so when she was a freshman she started flirting with tons of guys and she lost her virginity at a very early age with a senior, she was like 15ish and he was 18. no, she's not prego before i go on. SO she did this and during her sophomore year she had TONS of guys friends.oh i met her when she was a sophomore and i was a freshman, she was taking my bus to school and we started talking, something clicked, we started calling each othe cousins and being bffs until we got into a huge fight, she has a twin brother btw.. forgot to mention.. Ok to sum it up she gave me a living hell and with all her blowjob followers they gave e hell too just to get her to hook up with her, but sooner than expected she had no girl friendsbecause of what she did and guys just forgot about her when the new slut came along, she was alone. I shortened the story A LOT but in conclusion she wanted to be popular and wanted so she did all of this, and even with the bj fans she felt empthy in a room filled with ppl and after that she was alone. She's about to graduate now, she got a bad name and no guys asked her to prome because people say she got herpes and stuff, So before you try anything just think of Samantha, it could, no IT WILL backfire so if you really want to be popular smile a lot and be happy, you don't have to really be happy just make people think you are it would drag them in and in no time you'll be popular. love your skin because you're unique if you are a little in the chubby side think of this: marylin monroe was a size 10 and her thighs touched and she is still remembered for her beauty and her talent. and if someone has a problem with you being happy, send them to hell! because you are you and life is way too short to listen to people that since they're not happy want you to stop being happy! you are perfect and you only need yourself as proof! so i think that's it, hope it helped someone, because if even 1 girl's life is changed with this it was worth typing all this out.

      byebye now!

      and don't forget to smile :)!

      Don't worry about what people think of you; they're jealous.

      Just laugh it off, point to their shirt, and be all like, "Thanks... I love your shirt by the way!" Walk away! Being rude back isn't going to solve anything.

      The more confident you are, and the more you accept yourself, PEOPLE WILL WANT TO HANG OUT WITH YOU! Nobody wants a person who always complains because she/he's "not good enough."

      Just smile at random people in the hall, and compliment people! The more nice you are, the more people will want to be around you! Be someone that people can ask for advice, or just rant to. KEEP THEIR SECRETS, AND IF YOU ARE FIGHTING- DO NOT, and I REPEAT DO NOT TELL THE SCHOOL THEIR SECRETS!

      You're just going to look like a complete asshole.

      Ok so life been hard for me the last few months :/ every thing was going fine I moved schools in 2010 I thought It would be hard to fit in as I had none of the 'popular' girls in my class but I just went straight to the top with in a month I was said to be most popular and every one said the boys fancied me I was asked out by 7 boys in one week in my first 3 months there I had been asked out 31 times by different boys:D! All the popular ones too... I went on holiday with all the most popular girls and went out for lunch and all that until November 2011 I kissed a boy.. it wasn't the first time.. but as a cover up he said i told him all the girls bra sizes that I didn't even know !the girls never trusted me since then I have been put down to hang with the people I used to make fun of but the thing is being popular doesn't get u the guys being u does they r all still nice to me ect.. The girls keep bitching about me an blaming me for bitching about them when I don't bitch. I'm a nice girl I'm always the girl that holds open the door or says hi or helps an elderly person I'm also very polite saying Thankyou and I always have a smile on my face but those girls I used to call my best friends make me change so much every time I think about them.. I have stressed related Illnesses because of them and I hang out with 2 girls now, tbqh I don't really like them.. I used to make fun of them so much because I was one of the popular bitches! But those 2 girls I'm proud to say even tho I don't really like them they r what u call true best friends! Thought I might add boys r Soo much nicer and easier to talk to than girls 2 boys have stuck by me the whole way ilovethem so much friends..but life is still hard for me even with these lovely people my parents have been intouch with the school things should be sorted out soon I hope I go to a privet school now and I wanna move back to my old school I'm 13 years old btw I have 6 more years in school with them help xxxxxxxxxxx

      Okay, so i was sorta popular last year but now im in 8th grade and im really good friends with a good group of girls and we arent the most popular because we are sorta a clique even though i don't want to be in a clique but one of the gurls is dating a total loser and he has really ugly friends who tag along when we all go out and i don't wanna be seen with them because the reason that some guys don't like me is because of who i hang out with but i love the girls that i hang out with just not the guys so much because they are the losers and i have all the makings to be popular, because i am on all the teams and i am pretty-ish and i have been told that i am the funniest person that some pwople have ever met and im smart (but a lot of peoplle think im dumb because apparently its impossible to be smart and funny even though im in advanced classes) but i don't know how to harness it all and actually become popular because i spend my whole summer with the popular girls at sports stuff but im usually left out so i really don't know how to become friends with them all but they are all really nice and i know that i could be friends with them if i knew how so could somebody pretty please respond to this and help me out over here? thanks!!!! :)

      Want to know why being popular is bad? Well, they might backstab you and tell all you secrets. We know we can't trust all the "popular people" unless you really are friends.I am in the middle class, so I am not actually "popular". I know some of the popular people and once I told them who my crush was, so they told him. He then dared his friend to take me to his house and have sex with him. And well, I did end up in my crush's friends, Tyler, house. Before I knew it I was having sex with him. ( I'm 16) Tyler was drunk and did some inappropriate things. To my surprise, I fell in love with Tyler. Girls..don't spill your secrets until you really know them.

      hey guys so my school is full of brats, nerds, medium ppl but there isn't really a popular group. the problem is that I want to be popular but I don't exactly know how to be with everyone. I'm really good friends with all the girls in my grade but I can't trust anyone. I'm nice to everyone but theres so much gossip I just can't find a certain group that won't backstab me. what do I do?

      I wouldn't say that I'm popular, but I'm the top hoe at my school, or at least so I'm told. I'm in seventh grade, I'm known as the seventh grade slut. All of my greatest friends r in eighth grade, and so if I was in eighth grade I'd b little miss popular but I'm in seventh grade, known as the girl that flirts with all the older guys, which is where the top hoe and seventh grade slut came from.

      I'm dating an eighth grader right now, and i've only dated one guy in my grade (outta like 5 guys). Everyone is spreading rumors about me, and it's all stuff like "had sex in the bathroom" or "pregnant". I'm a average height girl for my age, long brown hair and deer eyes, super skinny, athletic, big butt and average boobs, and guys drool all over me. People look at me and think whore. Im not allowed to wear short shorts or tank tops, so it's not because I look like a whore or anything, I guess I just act like one.

      I hate being talked about. My best friend called me a slut behind my back, my other best friend left me because she thought I was bad, most of my friends in eighth grade could care less. People talk to me as if I'm a piece of meat or score. Guys ask me out or try to kiss me just to say they have, and they use me like a sex toy. I now have trust issues with my boyfriend now, who's an angel who loves me and calls what everyone says about me bs and stands up for me. He's my first love.

      Before you try to be popular, make sure you're going for popular and not a slut or whore. You'll regret it for the rest of your life if you go down my path.

      Hope this helps, Rissa

      Hey, I am a part of the so called "in group" at my school. Its pretty hard to manage, but if just let people know that you are a nice person they will be all over you. Just a simple compliment will put a positive thing in there head about you, so when one of there friends says something about you they can say that you are nice.

      No offense but being bitchy will work. I have done that my whole life and all the guys like me I have millions of friends and all the weirdos follow me. Plus I've had a boyfriend since 4th grade. I am pretty cute and all ways flirt with the guys. That will score you popularity points girls. My boyfriend is the cutest guy in school and all the girls want to steal him from me. I am 15 and I still have the same boyfriend I guess I'm the regina George of my school but I am way popular than her. And ps my boyfriend and I have made out 14 times, 9 times without a condom. I have 1 child who is 1 and my first make out session was when I was 11. Beat that. Ps read my comment and tell me Wat u think. I don't care about hating OK

      i already am the most popular girl in my school but trust me you definitely don't want to be the 'it' girl. sure, when i first started it was awesome - i was invited to everyones parties, hooked up with the hottest guys and was team leader and captains for everything. but then the excitement dies down and all you really want to do is be a nobody. when you're popular you get loaded down with expectations - you have to spend ages doing your hair just so it looks perfect for everyone, dress in borderline acceptable outfits for school (tight as t-shirts and leggings/tights that show off your legs/butt etc) spend hours doing your makeup, pick the right perfume etc etc etc. it all gets too much. they expect you to be on top of the trends and constantly switch out of styles so it makes it hard for everyone to keep up. you literally have to be perfect and an all-star. its even harder when you have to make time for friends, family and your boyfriend. a 'boyfriend' who lied, cheated and used me. it was awful. it all gets too much and i ended up with depression. then one day i said 'screw it, i'm done.' i rocked up with my hair in a messy bun, jeans and a sweatshirt with barely any make-up and no one would look at me and i couldn't have been happier. it showed me who my true friends were and who was just using me for popularity. i have new friends now - better friends who don't backstab or bitch and who aren't nasty. all my friends tried to steal my popularity when i was the queen bee and you know what? let them have their spotlight. it won't last for long.

      my message basically is don't try and fit into society's expectations. it really isn't worth it. being popular isn't all it as fabulous as it seems. for some it may be the best thing ever but for me, it was hell. i loved it at first, everyone looked at me and noticed me but now i couldn't care less. your in school to learn and get an education for your future - its not a competition on who can wear the highest heels and shortest skirt.

      be-YOU-tiful, being you is all that matters. if people don't like you for who you are then they're pathetic lowlives.

      I dunno how exactly I got here, I just know I've been clicking and viewing stuff until I stumbled upon this one and it made me curious. So, I can't really say that I am the most popular girl in school right now...but I'm one of those people. Not to brag or anything, but lots of guys have a crush on me and I always hear em say I'm hot. I guess to be popular you really gotta have the face and the body for it. And the clothes you wear, make sure they're up to date and that they'd look good on your body. Not all clothes compliment the structure of everyone's body. It varies. Also, put some make up on. Not too much, though! You don't want them laughing at you about how colorful and stupid your makeup looks! Make sure you know how to put makeup, because if you don't...well, you know the answer to that already. Look for makeup videos in the net, like in youtube or something like that. Also, be friendly! Make sure to strut your stuff but don't be over the top! Be confident with your body and make sure you show em how confident you are. Confidence is sexy. Just make sure you know how to present yourself.

      Hey, even before reading this advice, I was popular. I was just checking up to see if this is what everyone else seems to be trying to do.

      People respect me. Do you know why? I was first in the 'brainy/nerd' section...I was by myself, too. But funny quips always get you out of trouble. Be daring. Outgoing. Being shy never helps. Now people say hi to ME - I don't have to say hi to them. I'm not at the top, obviously, but I'm getting there slowly. My advice: wit is key. Always. If someone takes the mickey, or 'piss' :P, slowly, calculatingly, and calmly, take the mick back. Don't be spiteful. Say it calmly with a smile on your face. If you can't think of anything to say, don't say it. Just say instead,"If you say so," in a sarcastic tone, or similar. Don't gang up on people. Never a good way to become popular. You will just enduce fear in yourself. And one day someone will have enough guts to take you down. So, here's my advice as a list.

      1)Study. Yes, do study. But make time for your friends IN that studying. You don't want to fall behind. Stupid people are rarely popular.

      2)Try new things. Maybe you'll get a new hobby - a new hobby that other people may enjoy or find interesting.

      3)Be polite, but smooth and make a few jokes now and then - but only if the situation is right. Jokes aren't fit for serious situations.

      4)Try to help people. Don't always go out of your way to do it, but if it seems like you should help (from another person's perspective) do help. Helping everyone can make you look clingy, though.

      5)On the subject of clingy, don't cling! Hang out with different groups now and then (like I do). In my school there are different houses. I'm in S. I hang out with C and T sometimes (the other two houses).

      6)If there are houses in your school, try and help them. Team workers and people who take pride in what they are doing and who they are generally get respected, especially if they were once a low down geek.

      I hope these help as an additional extra. :)

      face it, it's very hard to be popular is to be attractive, whether u like it or not. I know life's not fair. Ur next best bet is to be best friends with somebody attractive. U can disagree but this is coming from a boy.

      I really want to be popular. First of all, I'm a goodie-goodie. I only use proper grammar(even when texting.)All of the popular kids in my class pick on me. I think that if I'm popular, I won't be picked on as much. I was thinking of going to a new school, where we don't wear uniforms. Then, I would completely change myself and wear heavy make-up, fancy dresses, get rid of my dorky glasses, and not be as bashful. Also, I think I should carry around a designer purse and wear high-heels every day. Should I stick with this plan? Or should I just be my normal self?
