Sadly, the number is large. Everyone is susceptible to being bullied. We should always be on alert and be ready to stand up for those who can't stand up for themselves.

Pretty often. Lots of people are afraid to report it because they don't know who to go to, or they are afraid of reciprocation. This is something that needs to change!

So many people get bullied and don't tell anyone because they feel that it is their fault, but really they've done nothing wrong and have to take others heat. It is unknown how many people go unnoticed when being bullied, but it needs to be put to an end.

This is very common. It happens a lot because people don't want to seem weak, or do not want to be harassed more for explaining their situation to someone. Never be afraid to tell someone!

here some facts about bulling in the United States: There are about 71 percent of students that report bullying as an on-going problem. Along that same vein, about one out of every 10 students drops out or changes schools because of repeated bullying. There are about 282,000 students that are reportedly attacked in high schools throughout the nation each month. but remember, if you are being bullied seek for help from someone and you can always talk to us if you feel the need to share.

Its quite common behavior in Humans. Once they go deep into their own fear, they start considering themselves alone and lonely. Anyone at this stage possess absences of mind and can be easily bullied by anyone.

This happens very often. Many people are too embarrassed to admit they get bullied, however it is very important to tell a trusted adult who can help fix the situation

There are so many times when people get bullied and don't tell anyone. It is great to be able to help them on here and to inspire them to stand up, or to make it through what they are being bullied about.

This is something that happens more often than what you would expect it would. Often people who have been bullied feel that by telling someone it will exacerbate the situation.

More often then one can imagine, being bullied isn't just physical billing but also involves emotional bulling. And almost all emotional bulling done to men is never expressed as its seen as a weakness on side of men to be bullied in such terms. And also women also not tend to report being bullied by they close ones as they are too emotionally attached. I thinks for some reason or other bulling has become part of most of the culture and mostly it's widely accepted as long as the outcomes of it are acceptable to the society.

Fear. Fear it will get worse. Fear of judgement. Fear drives most of what a person does, anyway

A lot of the time. This may be due to them being scared of telling someone and the bully finding out. Or it could be because they feel embarrassed and ashamed.

Majority of people do not say anything, they're afraid of what will happen, or do not recognize that it is bullying. It is so important to tell someone you trust otherwise it will only worsen.

I'd say people are getting bullied everyday and not doing anything or telling anyone about it because they are scared and do not know the proper ways to deal with a bully.

In my experience it happens way to often, people don't feel comfortable or sometimes don't recognize something is going on.

Very often, some victim are threatened, some victims blame themselves, some victims are scared, etc. The victim could be suspicious of people and don't believe in them.

There various forms of bullying. Most of often than not, we do not share these personal, frightening and humiliating experiences with anyone. Reason: We are afraid and humiliated. In a majority of covert bullying (e.g., being bullied by your employer/ senior colleague), we do not know whom to approach, the lack of evidence of this kind of bullying and often note that these will be trivialised by the rest of the group.

Based on my personal experience, pretty much everyone. I mean, everyone has been bullied. There are only a couple brave souls who tell people.

People get bullied at school and in their lives a whole freaking lot more than they should be. Most people don't tell others for fear of more pain

Really often actually. I was bullied for about three and a half years during middle school and into high school. I didn't tell anyone until after it stopped because I thought that I could tough it out. The dark part of me also told me that I deserved it, and that to tell anyone would only cause more pain in the long run. Someone that's being bullied might be afraid of retaliation should their bully find out that they told someone. They also might face a certain amount of anxiety over the situation or might not want to tell anyone at all. The key is to let the person talk about it in their own time and not forcing them to talk about it; this might actually do more harm than good. And if you're going through this right now, I'm so sorry. Just know that someone will always listen to you, even if you don't feel like anyone will understand. Stay strong and keep your head held high and don't let anyone tell you that you are less than you are.

"How often do people get bullied and do not tell some one?" is actually a very common question. In most cases people actually get bullied and it stays between them and the bully/bullies, because the victim is afraid to tell. The reason victims are so scared to tell is because they tend to believe that if they tell they will be considered by a snitch by the bully and others who find out about the situation. They also fear that they may come off as weak, but telling someone is the bravest thing a victim of bullying can possibly do. It keeps them safe and keeps everyone else aware.
