RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Re: Being an asshole won't get you a girlfriend.

Some people with really low self esteem might fall for assholes too, because they don't really think they deserve better. Those cases are truly sad. But sluts and morons I don't particularly give a shit about... until they start spawning humans who have to put up with their shit.

Quote:Abuse, the gift that keeps on giving.

Sad but true. Thankfully, some people manage to snap out of that fucked up cycle.

If both of the people are bitches/assholes, then they deserve each other. Let them make themselves miserable with the misery of their miserable personalities.

Re: Being an asshole won't get you a girlfriend.

The reason girls like assholes?
It's all physical attraction. I fucking hate it when girls only like guys because of how good they look. It makes us not-so-handsome people feel like crap.
Anyways, back on the subject: Most assholes are good looking and really tough. And they let those traits get to their head. They're so overwhelmed by those "awesome" characteristics, that they enjoy make people who aren't as handsome or tough feel like shit, so they can feel superior to everyone else.

Re: Being an asshole won't get you a girlfriend.

I dont know about that, i mean, when someone is being abused, it doesnt seem like a thing to do to go back into a situation where you want to be apart of that kind of lifestyle.

The One Wrote:My Theory On Why Some Girls Keep Going Back To Assholes:

You know what really sucks? Traumatic experiences at young ages become attractive in later years.

Guess who an (untreated) abuse survivor thinks is attractive? Abusers! Ding Ding Ding you win.

And then, if an abuse survivor marries (or not) an abuser and has children, guess what the abuser will do to the children!?! Omg, you are good at this game.

And even if the abuser leaves without ever even MEETING the child, the child will still grow up with only one parental figure (in most cases) and that remaining parental figure doesn't have any experience in being a good parent (because he/she didn't have a good childhood) and the child will STILL end up being attracted to a-holes who are abandoning just like their abusive abandoning parent that they never met.

I don't really understand WHY this is the way it is, and I'm by no means a doctor or psychiatrist, but this is the way abuse works. I've seen waaaay too many cases to be questioning this theory. Friends and family :( .

I guess this is kind of a rant, but all of this is true. In conclusion, if you were abused as a child, TALK to someone; a counselor, a psychiatrist, w/e. This can be treated.

Abuse, the gift that keeps on giving.

you have yourself a very good point there, and i fully back you up on that because girls can be real mean sometimes.

What i hate is when the media tries to put out the image of 'the perfect woman', and then you have all these false expectation of what women look like, and what girls act like. Girls have puppy fat for a fucking reason dammit!

Why do they choose models who are tall and thin? Its terrible, they all look the bloody same, and noone cares. They might look 'hot' and all, but seriously, how many people in the 'real' world look like this?

The fact that people are triyng to create the 'perfect human' is rediculous.

i might have gone off-topic with this.

Re: Being an asshole won't get you a girlfriend.

I have had a lot of relationships...I'm not boasting it's a fact (I'm actually self hating)

I have been called a Whore and Stuff but sometimes things don't work out,Which I can only find out if I go out with someone, At the minuite I am in a relationship and it's going pretty well because it's serious but I do have relationships which dont mean much (Which I find out later usually after a week)

Am I an Asshole?

The World seemed to all make sense but that sense seemed to slowly fade now in 11th grade

No.

I;ve had a few relationships but they simply don't work out - because I'm simply phobic of commitment.

Re: Being an asshole won't get you a girlfriend.

I could never get a girl because I respect them... Wtf


I go to an all-boys school. One of the terms they use when they get a girlfriend is, and I quote, "bagging bitches" (EX. You never bag bitches). As if you were hunting or something. Just because I don't speak like that, I am weird. Jawdrop
