My friend keeps ignoring me? -_- Please read the description :p
So I've been friends with this girl since the fourth grade. We're pretty close but barely hang out after school. She REALLY wants to become "popular" at our school and hates who she is. People view her as "shy" and "quiet" and she hates that. I, however, am viewed as a nerd and could care less what people think of me. Then when I try talking to my friend, she ignores me and stares at the "popular" girls laughing when they laugh when she's not even being noticed by them -__- I try to convince her that being "popular" isn't everything yet she is still a follower. Should I start ignoring her? Or how can I make her appreciate being friends with me? Or should I just not talk to her? What do I do?
