I was popular at the veterans' hospital where I volunteered, lol. The gold men all liked sitting and talking with me, dancing with me, joking with me. This staffer who was the niece of one of the veterans, and was a social climber there, trying to get people to like her by talking officially and knowing better than them, was jealous of me (and I guess my common touch) and gave me a hard time. :D

I'm popular at the childrens specialized hospital I work at, everybody loves me being around, and as soon as I walk in, everybody is happy to see me, including the children.

I never thought I was, then I found out after graduating high school that even the incoming freshman class knew who I was somehow. I never actually talked to anyone really-I think it was just my unusual behavior that attracted people... that and I really liked to help out with things, so people got to know me that way.

I was popular among the residents at the care home I used to work in.
I was popular on a spiritual forum until I melted down a few times, lashed out and became the polar opposite of popular, lol.

I was popular in high school after I won the gold medal for diving and several other diving trophies. It was a surreal experience because I kept thinking "I'm still the same guy as before, so why wasn't I loved for that?" 8O

I was popular from about 1st-7th grade in school.

Then all my friends started do drugs and I ditched them and made friends with people much less popular.

I found out that I liked these people a lot better because they weren't so superficial about everything.

I've been popular in workplaces but I think maybe half the people liked me
and the other half just liked to take advantage of me !

In high school, I was a god to the other students.

In college, it's quite the opposite, unfortunately.
