I never thought I was cool, even until now. I'm interested in cool stuff. But I'm not good at doing any of those things. I get along with people and some people even told me I'm cool because of that. But in my mind to be cool means you have to have lots of friends, be talented, etc.
I don't think I'm a loser on the other hand. I'm just a regular guy. But most times I feel like an underdog.
I voted "no", though the answer depends on your definition of cool. The way I see it, there's cool, and "cool". I don't consider myself "cool". To me, that means popular, social, and more often than not in my experience, cocky, stuck-up, and rebellious, either a bully or someone who tries to act tough.
But I think I'm pretty cool, without the quotes. I like the things I like, and I like myself in a sense. I feel like I'm an underdog because I'm not part of the social elite, but at the same time, I don't feel like I'm really below them either, that their way is better than mine.

That's one reason why being "cool" never really appealed to me. I also felt that it required an obligation to keep being "cool", to make my life all about competing and chasing status, and that if I wanted to do something else, or if I said or did something that was "uncool", I'd find myself on my own. It seemed pointless because it never ends and I felt that the "cool" people would have been fairweather friends.

Cool as a word doesn't mean anything and what matters is the ongoing action in my book. Think of a case while someone is being called "cool", no one has much to do with the person. Is it really being "cool"?
Considering awesome people that I have met online and can message/ talk to, yes, I'm cool.
This is a definition of cool that I can like and want to be. I consider myself and my friends cool in this same sense.
