What is a rumor that someone has spread about you?

I know this can be a touchy subject, but I am curious, as I have been the victim of all sorts of rumors growing up - I just didn't know about a lot of them until years later. They were started by jealous girls, or boys, lying to each other. When I hear some of the crazy garbage, I can't believe anyone would believe it, but people believe what they want to.

When I get frustrated about something I hear like that, I always feel better to think of the people who have come up to me, or a family member, years later & said that I was the only one who was always nice to them, despite what anyone else did. I have a hard time accepting that people would want to believe bad stuff about someone they don't even know, especially when they are given the chance to find out the truth for themselves, but don't!

Anyway, there's little to be done about it. There will always be rumors & spiteful gossip. It's human nature that some people will want to drag others down to make themselves feel better in some way. I would prefer to be judged based on my actual actions, but it seems, at times, that is wishful thinking.

Do you have any experience with this? Are you willing to share a rumor someone has spread about you? Maybe you have spread a rumor & not realized it wasn't the truth until later? How did you feel about that?

When I was 13 everyone called me anorexic behind my back (I didn't find out til later). I was just really fit because I swam every day and I had a small appetite. My mother (of Jewish heritage) also told me that I looked like a holocaust victim loooool. She said it to my face though! All the other rumors were either true or not said to my face even though I'm sure they existed.

One of my previous co-workers told my ex husband that I cheated on him with my current husband while I was working and that my second daughter might not be his. I didn't meet my husband until AFTER I left my ex husband, and this person I used to work with, had never seen or met my husband. She was just trying to start issues with my ex husband and I. I was 100% faithful while I was married to him, even though I wasn't happy in my relationship. It's just crazy the things people say to upset you and make you look like someone you're not.

One of the worst rumors spread about me was about my first marriage and how it ended. I had an affair with my Master but it was at the end of my marriage. It had been over for months. People started spreading rumors that the affair had gone on for years which was completely not true. Those rumors were very hurtful. I was just friends with my Master for 7 years and we did not sleep together until I felt like my marriage had ended.

I am shocked & saddened to read so many stories of malicious rumors that have destroyed or added to the destruction of marriages! It's so sad! What the heck benefit are these people getting starting this shit? I guess they don't want anyone to be happy? I'm glad for some of you that you have ended up in better relationships despite it!

i run a home daycare and one of the other providers started a rumor that I LOCKED my 3 kids outside in a thunderstorm. she said that she felt so bad for them that she went to the apartment building that i live by and let the kids in there. i don't live in the apartment building i live next to it in a house, why didn't the just knock if they were really that worried. oh one more thing its all a lie. my kids did go out and play in the rain one day with their raincoats on but, not a thunderstorm.

Mostly they all have been about who I was dating, sleeping with, or my sexuality. At that point if you just stare at people and don't throw a fit they go away.

I also had some 'she likes _____" rumors started by friends when I was younger, which really sucked hahaha. I guess I always gave people obvious rumors to start and didn't confirm or deny them, so that way people didn't have to go digging for rumors to come up with and they didn't get very much fun out of it. *shrugs*

I feel really bad for those who have had marriages ruined by rumors; I feel like your partner should believe you first and foremost!

I swear there was a similar thread a couple of weeks ago. One of my middle school classmates was trying to spread a rumour about me having a child (as a teenager) after she saw me walking with my niece. There were also rumour about me being a lesbian and a slut when I was in boarding school, just because most of my friends were guys and I had tattoos. Now that I am an adult I try to stay away from public attention therefore there are no more rumours; or at least I hope so.

What rumor hasn't someone spread about me is more like it! I'm a single mom in a small town, and I speak my mind. In their eyes, I'm the antichrist. LOL

In junior high, I was deemed a lesbian because I didn't like guys ... Thing is, I didn't like girls, either. I couldn't understand their logic. But when you're surrounded by boys who are 11-14 years old and act like wild animals, I don't find it attractive. I actually had crushes on some of the male teachers. I think this is where my older, intellectual man fetish came from.

Oh, and apparently everyone in high school believed I had a harem of guys because I was always surrounded by them and they treated me better than they did the other girls. C (a friend back in HS and now my fiance) said that nobody outside the group understood how I could have all these boyfriends when I was considered to be too fat and ugly. I didn't even know what was going on - I thought nobody wanted me.

He knew the truth - they were all cock-blocking each other. *evil smiley*
