Maybe they'll take you out to dinner and a movie too. Might get lucky. ;-)

Seriously, though, if kids are being kids, then forget it. But really, FORGET IT. It appears as if you obsess over this and that's not healthy. I'd walk away if I were you. Take your best bud with you if he's cool, but don't associate with back-stabbers.

Hey DaQ some advice for you.

If you have a bad stomach don't drink really carbonated beers.

Try something like a porter or stout or brown. The darker beers for me are much easier on my stomach then bud or pbr
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

This is a very strange (not very manly) post but what the hell...

If they revert to their old ways...making you the butt of their jokes and you don't wanna just ignore them...you don't have many options. I suggest this: the next guy that does something - take your right hand, make a fist and give a strong right cross. If you don't like that idea, just return the flower and be done with it.

Yep, basically. These guys aren't your friends. :-t


Exactly.

Don't stress yourself out over it. Most people lose their high school friends (if not all of them, most of them) after high school. It's normal.

In high school, you have to make friends with the people there because...well, that's who's there.

I've found that the friends you make after high school, especially in college if you go, are the friends that will last. You don't make friends out of necessity not to be bored, you get more of a choice of your friends and you're all a lot more mature and working towards making something of yourselves. Sharing the same major or plan in life with someone will help bind you together better than sharing a lunch table. I have no remaining friends from high school. Everyone scattered all over the country and lost touch. If they were TRUE friends, they would've kept in touch with me. However, friends I've made in college are still around, probably helped by the fact that we were in the same place to start careers instead of wanting to flee the place we'd been for 18 years and bored of it. I even married my best friend from college. ;-D

It's not you. Kids are just jerks at your age.

It will only encourage them to retaliate back and it will only escalate each time. Take your pride and your knowledge of right and wrong and say good riddance. It is about being the better man and realizing that this is only a short chapter in your long life.

Rule #1 of Ball Breaking 101 is to be able to receive it if you wanna dish it. Very few topics are off limits, at least with the "better" friends.

Also, they want to stay close to many people from high school, while I just want to go to college and get on with life - my name is getting tarnished here with these acquaintances because of these guys - not that I care really, but it's annoying.


The rest of what you wrote, including starting this thread, indicates that you do care but, if you wanna get on with your life, do so. College is a great way to do that. :-)
