Remember as confusing as this next sentence will sound, think about it. Don’t care about what you think other people think of you. Just go with the flow. If you know for sure someone is judging you you can voice it, then just act like you don’t care…because you don’t. Practice thinking this way and your confidence will improve via self-acceptance. People at school will start wondering where you got all this self esteem!
Have your own sense of style. Discover the clothes you prefer/like to wear and create your style. Wear those clothes to school and be unique, but try to know what’s fashionable and be up-to-date! Be ahead of the pack. Be a leader, not a follower; thats what makes you cool. Don’t worry about the people who judge you about your clothing. Hang out with friends who like your personality, sense of fashion, etc.
Be independent. You don’t need a boyfriend/girlfriend to be cool. Only go out with someone if you actually like each other, don’t just find a boyfriend/girlfriend who is popular, so you will seem cooler. Love isn’t about popularity. Actually if you become close friends with a guy/girl then it might even be more fun going to dances, hanging out, you don’t exactly NEED to be in love. If you have a secret crush, try getting really close to them then eventually they might even fall for you too!
Be open-minded. This is very vital. Some people have different opinions and tastes so don’t go gossiping about them just because they don’t agree with you.
Respect people. Respect others beliefs and cultures.
Smile. Don’t put a fake one too. Try to keep it natural. Don’t be sarcastic to people until you’re on good terms with them, don’t act like you need attention, and don’t look like you’re trying too hard. Be patient. Keep doing your thing. Someone’s bound to notice.
Have a nice hairstyle. Try a buzz cut or laxer flow if you’re a boy, side bangs if you’re a girl. Straightening or perming your hair is also very cute! Or at least find a cute hairstyle that fits you face, and your fashion.
Be fit, clean, and smell good. The first two are compulsory. Brush your teeth, exercise, etc. The third, you don’t have to smell nice, just don’t smell at all. Deodorant and a bit of perfume over that is good. Not too much. Or just deodorant. Just don’t smell bad. It will make your rating go way down.
Always remember that attitude is a key factor in how people look at you. Have a great personality: be talkative, nice, and have charisma!Try to notice the people who are soulful and soulless you don’t want to hang around the wrong people they will get a bad image.
Make funny jokes! But it isn’t cool when you make jokes about your friends. It’ll hurt their feelings. Being cool doesn’t mean being naughty. Behave in class. Sometimes it’s time for jokes, sometimes it’s not. Don’t be too cocky or too much of a show-off. This will make your rating go down.Don’t make rumors because that may make people hate you too.
Don’t ever talk back to teachers. It is disrespectful, makes you look bad, and they will watch you from then on.
Just because some popular girls like bad boys, a lot of popular girls also love cute, funny, neat, polite boys. It’s your choice though.
Don’t be fake. One thing a lot of kids hate or like is being fake. Think about it. If you have a good friend that is not exactly popular, don’t ditch him/her for some fake show-off that fills the hallways of school getting attention for having too much make-up. Maybe that friend that you just gave up on would have been your best friend! People can tell if you’re fake or not. Just because someone is popular doesn’t mean they are fake. Look at people from the inside.
