What to do if people keep spreading rumors

Report as

Just try to ignore them, no need in getting caught up or letting things bother you that you know aren't true

Dont listen to them, just ignore them and act like it doesn't bother you, and eventually it will stop. People used to spread rumors about me and this is what I did and it stopped

Well it depends on the rumors and what makes a rumor different from news.

Well I mean afew things... First what makes it a rumor?
Report as
Because I never did anything to this girl and she wants my bf
Report as
Is bf best friend or boyfriend? I've heard it both ways. It's a girl stealing your friend by telling people you did, what?
Report as
My boyfriend and she is saying I was cheating on him when I didn't

Did you do it? If not then they're wrong. If people believe them then just imagine who's fault it is others then the rumor spreaders.

the best action, in my opinion, is to STOP whoever telling you the rumour from continuing... mind you, whoever tells you a rumour about others will one day tell rumours about you to others...

That's what's happening the rumor is about me for no reason :(

spreading rumours is a social & psychological illness... it gives a temporary "fake" feeling of power... if everyone of us stopped the rumour teller to continue his rumour... rumour spreading will eventually disappear... IF a rumour was told about me... I would cease a time when the original rumour teller is present with the others who heard the rumour and question him/her in front of the others about the rumour...

Most people spread rumors because they are bored with their life. It excites them to have the newest news so they would feel important! Usually its the ones who watch and love reality shows lol. Just watch what you say. They also like to take what you say and turn it around to make you the bad guy! It's all bout the drama! Hey.. Stay drama free! Happy Easter!!

Laugh. They are just bored with their own lives. Better yet, give them some extra drama just for fun. When it's all said and done eventually they will feel the same as you. Karma is real.

All the times it is not rumors. Get the things confirmed and then tell others if you find it true otherwise some embarrassing situation arises.
