Subject: So, did you go to your senior prom?

Written By: Mat1991 on 11/14/18 at 2:43 am

If you went, did you enjoy it? If you didn't, why didn't you go, and do you regret it?

I didn't attend mine. It's ironic because I was involved with a lot of stuff throughout high school, but during the course of my senior year, I just became over high school and had lost interest in most things related to it.

If I could do it over, maybe I would go. What would one night dressed up and being at prom hurt? It's not something that nags at me all the time, though.  ::)

I did. It was a lot of fun! A bit overhyped by the teachers though... "Something you'll remember for the rest of your life". Perhaps, but in terms of memorable events it's rather mid-tier. I had 10x more fun during my orientation week in university.

I think if you really liked high school, prom can be an excellent and memorable way to cap it all off. For me, however, that's a period in my life I'm happier thinking less of. ;D Me being closeted and going single may also play a part in why I didn't find it so memorable. :-X

Nonetheless, it was a lot of fun. I recommend everyone go. Just keep your expectations in check, and don't do drugs. ;)

Same with me. My mom made me go to my prom. I enjoyed it but it wasn't like a highlight of my type of thing. I think it's great experience even if you don't have a date just think of it as a moment rather than a life-changing experience.

My thing was, I enjoyed some parts of high school, but never particularly liked school dances, or dressing up. Being gay makes prom infinitely more awkward, too, being one of society's last heterosexist institutions.  ::)

I didn't go to mine. I wanted to deep down inside...but, since I was kind if a rebel at that age I just didn't want to see anyone's face. Plus, I couldn't find a pretty dress!

Don't get me wrong everyone. I WAS NOT a bully. A bit off ropic there but I had to say it.

It's one of the reasons why my senior year of high school was my favorite along with so many other events that occurred throughout that year!

It's basically a watered-down debutante ball that I never went to, because I didn't have a date.  :\'(

I wanted to but didn't. Why? No one asked me and I didn't want to go stag. I didn't go to my junior prom either.  :\'(

I did, I wish I hadn't though. I took a girl who didn't attend my school and my best friend took her sister.
Neither one of danced so outside a few slow dances it was pretty boring for the girls, and me as well.
After the prom my girlfriend asked me to take her home and after I parked in front of her house she got
out of the car and said we shouldn't see each other anymore. So there I stood, in the street, in a robins
egg blue tux looking dumbfounded. Boy I hated that night.

It worked out though, a year after the prom I married that girl. That was 37 years ago and we're still
together, and I still don't dance.

I didn't attend mine. Couldn't really afford the expenses of a ticket, a nice suit, or transportation. I didn't even have a date. Therefore I chose not to go.
