I think people stopped bullying me in grade 10. There were still a few people bugging me around in grade 9.

When my face cleared up, I grew to 6'1 and I was both tall, dark AND handsome. Then everyone left for some reason....

Not sure exactly when it stopped but it was definitely easier once I was out of school.

Once out of high school I was no longer imprisoned with the jerks. There's still bullies in adulthood, but there's more freedom to get away from them.

Same here. The bullying was pretty bad in Grade 9, though, for me but somewhat stopped in grade 10. I was still periodically teased up until grade 12.

The psychical bulling stopped after I switched schools in middle of 6th grade & went to a small school for dyslexia. I did have some problems in car-pool thou with bullying. School only went true 8th grade thou so I went to a Catholic high-school. I was teased a lot there at times but I was not psychically bullied. The bulling stopped after I graduated. One of the many rezones I had no interest in going to college after

I never really had a problem with it after about 8th grade, I made scary friends and cultivated a menacing appearance and reputation so people looking for trouble tended to give me a wide berth. The same basic methods still generally work for me, predatory types tend to be able to read the vibe I give off and steer clear of me, the trick is looking capable without appearing outwardly threatening.

It came to be less, when I graduated. I still deal with bullying from a so-called friend, within my group of four. Dean's intelligent Ray, Barb's quiet Pete, Teresa's malevolent Dave, and I'm darling, sensitive Mick. Teresa's been bullying me quite a bit, lately. There seems to be a bout of black hatred between her and I, right now.

Two things happened at around the same time. 1. I stopped giving a crap. 2. I got my boobies. No really they were not that noticeable but apparently I was not so undesirable anymore.

The bullying peaked at age of 17, it was more abuse (physical attacks), then it suddenly stopped at 18, as if everybody went mature at once.

Nowadays there are only jokes when I take things literally, it's not fun, but better then they hit you, pull down your pants and throw you in the girls changing room at gymnastics. I always hated gymnastics, those teachers never pay attention and afterwards they expect you to point out the abusers, like that's going to stop the abuse, in my experience, pointing out makes things worse, I'm not stupid.

Yeah it's kind of the same for me as well and most of the time it's intentionally.
