I never had a very good friendship with any of the girls in that group (I'm in the International Baccalaureate program so I don't have a ton of time for a lot of friends), and for the most part have not spoken with many of them for years. The one I have had to interact with the most is Jessica because she runs track and cross country like myself. Frankly, she's a ditz and socially inept. She truly thinks I enjoy talking to her, just claims I'm rude sometimes. The truth is that I'm only ever rude to people that I simply cannot stand to be around.
Ultimately, I don't know if she's over me but she has been spreading rumors about me and it's getting annoying. In a certain light it's laughable because there really isn't any 'dirt' about me - the entire reason I'm supposedly a jerk is that they don't think I'm funny? Sorry this is sort of a jumble of events.
At the moment it's really only one group of maybe 5 girls that are in on this, but I worry that they may have influence over others and cause them to believe these blatant untruths. How should I handle this? What is the deal with Jessica?
