A girl I barely know is spreading rumors that me and my best friend are stuck up and immature. I was never mean to her. What should I do?

She was in my class last year but I didn't really talk to her. Even then she wasn't that nice to me. She is going to be a year 10 this year and I am just going to be starting high school, and I really don't want people to be mean to me because of what she has said. (I didn't know what category to put it in so I just put it in teen relationships, even though it's probably not right)

Hi, jealousy can make people do silly things. If you choose to confront her then do it in a safe place and if she looses her self control try to remain as calm as you can because it will show her up. And in all honesty, believe it or not you can choose to ignore people like this, it's all part of life and learning..and once school has finished it's highly unlikely you will cross paths again..because you will have a fabulous life & career and be happy within yourself to always keep going forward! All the best :)

If I were you, I'd totally confront her about it.. It shows her that you're well aware of the rumors and that you would like to know a reason as to why she's spreading them. That's your best bet (:

Typical high school drama, we were all there at one point. I had this happened to me a couple of times and honestly I think the best solution is to just ignore it. There are a lot of immature and rude girls that just dedicate to spreading rumors about others to gain more attention. If it really bothers you that much go ahead and confront her, the only issue I would say with that is that it might worsen the problem (if she's one of those hateful drama queens). If it gets to a serious point talk to a counselor or a teacher. Telling you from personal experience, these type of people only want you to invest more of your time paying attention to their drama they hate it when you act like you're uninterested. Hope everything goes well (:

be yourself and be happy. it will make her mad if she is just a hater. I was a target in the same way once. I got sprayed in the eyes with diluted bleach and almost lost my eye sight. to make things worse I had to live under the same roof with this... rude person. well what got me through: one day she was getting beaten up real brutally and I nocked her roomate out for it. after all she did, she never talked to me or bothered me after that.

That happened to me before and is still happening but the best way is to smile and ignore and just live your own life and be with your friends and it'll be better. Just be the bigger person!

Confront her. Make her squirm. Someone did that to me so I went up to her and said "hey I heard you said this about me..but I couldn't believe it because you'd never say something like that, you didn't, right?" Watch them look guilty. It'll scare the crap out of them. :)

This has happened before and what I did was talk it out. I said," I've heard you've spread a rumor about me... Is it true? If they said yes.. " You better get your freaking mouth fixed idiot.I'll spread one." If you want to be nice..." Please stop it. I seriously don't like rumors. And where did you get this rumor from? A friend,sibling, or yourself?" Or ignore it. Another time I said, " Hey you said (RUMOR) Right? Well you should stop it because i'll spread one about you." C;
