How to Get Rid of Unwanted Friends

by Ben Lewis
We've all been there - we meet somebody, whether it be at a party, on social media, or at school, and suddenly they never leave you alone. After just one friendly conversation, they leech on to you and are constantly texting you, following you around, and thinking that you two are BFFs, when honestly, you want nothing to do with that person. If you've never been in this position, you probably are the unwanted friend.

But truthfully, I didn't mind it at all. I wasn't bullied or depressed, I was simply unpopular. I had a couple good friends, and that was all that I needed. In middle school, it's not necessarily important to be "popular."

This can drive our parents mad and it usually ends with a speech on how to be more responsible and how not to buy junk, etc. This mostly¬† happens to me but I've decided that it has to get end. This here is exactly how I'm gonna try to do it and maybe you guys can try it too.   Don't buy things you [...]
