    I can certainly think of many instances where people wanted to be near me or become my friend in order to gain something or meet someone else who I knew.

    Don't take it the wrong way, they are not my friends either ;)

    Very true, I can't say I am the most confident person in the world but I have never felt the need for that ego boost that comes with being popular.

    Good answer! :) I think I am lucky to have some really great friends who stand by me even when I have nothing to give.

    Very true, you can be surrounded by people and still feel completely alone.

    This is interesting because growing up my best friend was obsessed with popularity. Even now as adults it often feels like she treats most things between her and I like a competition.

    I think that popularity always scared me. I've always been more comfortable around just my few close friends then with a large group of people I barely know.

    I think I would probably try to psychoanalyze her. She would make an interesting case study.

    I remember in high school my best friend was obsessed with being popular. I never understood why she cared. Now that I am older and have studied psychology I think I understand a bit more. Still I'd rather have a few good friends.
