It took graduating and moving on to make me realize that those people weren't worth my time. And I don't plan on going to reunions because I feel all they're for are for the populars to hold onto their fleeting popularity and the unpopulars who still want the populars' attentions. Their opinions of me aren't important anymore---hell, they never should've been in the first place.

I agree with some of the other posters that you're still stuck in your high school years and still desperate for the attentions of these people. It's not worth it. You've been out of there for a decade---move on. You'll find friends who'll appreciate you regardless of your social status in life, and that's worth more than the attentions of a snobby loser any day.
Me I used to think that if I could be friends with the popular crowds I could gain alot of friends and get invited to their good time events (parties, sporting events, road trips, vacations and camping trips) but the one thing I've had that they didn't have was a learning disability and I was basically snubbed cause of my learning disability.

Fortunately I now know who my true friends really are and I am very greatful and fortunate to have them by my side, there are alot of people who think of me as a great guy who is easygoing, polite and laid back and I am happy to have them by my side, there even was a girl who thought I was way too nice and unselfish and she felt that I've needed to think about myself a little more and I later realized she was right, fortunately me and her are true friends and I'm really happy to have her as my friend.

To tell you the truth if I could either be friends with my current friends or the people who I really wanted to be friends with in high school I would definitely choose the former category

Something tells me we're not getting the entire story here -- such as, maybe you weren't picking up on cues that he wanted you to go away, so he made the message a bit more clear. If a high school "acquaintance" walked up to me and interrupted a night out with my wife and friends and tried to chat me up, I'm not sure how cordial I'd be either.
I think one of my disqualities is getting PO'd easily and my learning disability and that probably set him off and caused him not to like me, plus me and him have nothing in common.

I can talk constantly and I sometimes talk about people who we knew in high school and what their opinions are on them.

Fortunately I have gotten over the incident at the bowling alley and I've started realizing that I've gone through worse incidents than what happened at the bowling alley, it made me realize what kind of person I am and I definitely know who my true friends are and that makes me become a wiser person.
