People made attempts to pick on me but it never really worked out because of 3 reasons.
1. I didn't care and I made it obvious I didn't care with my replies. One tip sarcasm is much more fun if people aren't sure if you are being sarcastic or not.
2. Intimidation. My style of intimidation probably won't work if you are already established at your school but people fear the unknown and if you are that they won't mess with you. I was really small and skinny in high school, but I didn't laugh smile or talk to people I didn't know so if someone I didn't know said something rude I would just look at them blankly and they wouldn't say anything to me or about me while I'm around again.
3. Friends in many circles. I was also smart in high school so a lot of people would ask me to help them with there work, hot girls, football players, and I was also in a few clubs at school, band and robotics. So if one of my friends saw one of their friends say something mean to me they would say don't mess with him he's cool.

Yeah constantly. Kids always attacked me in elementary. I stood out mostly for being poor and having bad allergies was why I was targeted. In fifth grade my neighbor was a girl who had a crush on me, but when I said I didn't like her like that she beat me up and stole my bike. In eighth grade my parents put me in a private Christian school cos they thought it was safer but the kids there were actually some of the worst bullies. In high school tho, it did get better, cos I got on amicable terms with a couple jocks & preps who then told the others to back off of me.
So try to befriend the elite is my only advice.

That is a good strategy. I have so many examples of when someone stood up for me and prevented me from getting bullied.

When I was young people at school spread a rumor about me being in love with someone it was true but I had never told anyone about it. At that point I went from a kid who loved to socialize and who also had a lot of friends to a really shy and uncertain kid. I was ignored and alone for years but in 7th grade it turned for the better. But still to this day I have a really hard time talking to new people and expressing myself after that time in my life and it really sucks.

Ya but I quickly learned that I couldn't let there words hurt me. By the time i got to high school I realized the best way to fight a bully was to fight them. Its was usually with words, they say something the I'd say something back. I also had small man syndrome and wasn't afraid to get in someones face if I though they were fucking with me too much. It also helped that I was way smarter than most of the kids at my school and they respected that and would ask for my help a lot.

There were phases in my school days from being picked and bullied from, to fighting which didn't lead often to good things (eg suspensions) to mellowing and using comedy as a better option so winning over those who might pick on people.

I haven't ever really been just because I am nice to everyone in an attempt to prevent being picked on

Hmmm I was bullied in 1st grade for not knowing how to speak any English, aside from that, nope.

Started playing tons of soccer and wrestling, no one really messes with me in attempts to bully me even though I'm only 5'4 LOL. Although.. last time I was ever in a physical fight was in kindergarten because this kid was picking on my friend. Other than that, I'm all around pretty friendly and get along with most people.

I was picked on as soon as I got into middle school because I wasn't "mature" like the other kids.
I've never seen physical bullying before in my life, it's basically like talking carp and rumors

I was bullied for a short period in elementary school. After that I stopped caring and reacting to what people would say and they eventually just left me alone. Doesn't work for everyone, but it definitely worked for me. Or maybe they kept bullying me but I didn't notice because I stopped caring. Either way, something worked. lol

I was bullied in 1st grade and was a bully myself in 6th grade then I was bullied again in 7th grade. I started playing Football in 8th grade and played throughout high school too and after that no one really bullied me because middle and high schoolers are stupid and treat you better if you play a popular sport (at least it worked like that when I was in highschool).
