I'm just going to be honest, I was going to ask a girl from my work but she moved to Austraillia. There is no way I can find another date in 3 weeks. :P

Most folks at my school are telling me to go by myself, but that sure as hell ain't happening.

I think I might just wing it and go see Cowboys & Aliens :D !!

i went stag and had a great time, lots of other girls went alone and i danced my butt off, had a good time. I say if you have friends going meet up with them, just be sure if you don't go ask yourself will you regret it down the road, if not then go see cowboys and aliens, its all up to ya

haha that changes everything. If you don't think you'll be able to get a date, i still think you should go. You don't know what would happen and prom is a rare experience. You could always go to the movies. However, then again prom is expensive.

I wouldn't bother yourself about it. Whi really gives a ****? You certainly won't, after a year or two (especially considering that you don't seem to really give a **** NOW).

So yeah...skip it.

Now, don't get me wrong. If you stand a good chance of getting laid, then by all means go to the prom. That's apparently not an option for you though, so...why bother? It's not as if 10 years into the future, you're going to be a lonely man looking back into his past and wondering where his life went wrong. And then suddenly narrowing down the specific point of regret: thatwhen you were in high school, you skipped the prom instead of going by yourself.

Seriously...you're not gonna give a ****.

And on that note...the only reason anyone recommends people to go to the prom alone is because that's feel-good-fuel for the people who go to the prom and still fail to get laid. That obviously pisses them off and makes them feel insecure and lame. But at least then, they can say, "at least I didn't go to the prom alone, like THAT GUY." So yeah...just keep in mind that if anyone tells you that you've gotta go to the prom even if you're alone, that they're probably only giving that advice so that THEY will look better by comparison.

But on the other hand...who gives a ****? It's the ****ing high school prom. I've honestly never met a single person over the age of 25 who gave a flying **** about that stuff. If you think it'll be fun to go alone, then go alone. What the hell...even if you do end up looking like the lonely loser, you're not going to care about THAT in a couple of years either.

I never went and never cared to. I think it's better to spend a nice evening alone with the person I love with candlelight and our own music dancing together without anyone else around.

I'm totally sold :P ! I hate my school, the prefects and the teachers ! Cowboys and Aliens it is !! There is plenty of time for poontang ! I don't think that much will be happening at the actual prom anyway so i'll just turn up to the afterparty :D !! haha ;)

I don't think it's a big deal, I didn't go my Jr. year because I couldn't afford it.
In the end, it's just one expensive dance.

i think tv and movies make going to the prom too big of a deal. they act like if you don't go to the prom you life will suck the rest of your life. no it's not a big deal if your don't go to prom. i went to an all girls school so no prom for me and i don't feel like i missed anything. it's just one night. it's not like 20 years from you will weeping because you didn't go to prom.

Well thats bad timing isnt it. I guess if no one else is going by themselves then I guess I wouldn't go either. I didnt go to my first Prom and felt fine with that but did go to my second and it was pretty fun.

If you're in to the whole grinding thing while dancing ( no matter what song it is [except for slow] ) then yes go ahead. For me i dislike dancing. I slow danced with my girlfriend at prom, but that was it because i don't find it fun having her bend over in front of me while i hold her waist. Thats not dancing. The only enjoyable part was the dinner we went to after words at the Cheese Cake Factory. For the amount of money that went into it, I thought it was a waste. Luckily, however, I didnt pay for it.

Generally dances are stupid and pointless unless you're trying to get with a girl, then it' just something you've gotta put up with.

From my experience, I really liked prom becaue I got to go with the girl I really wanted to go with. So we had a great time, actually. If you don't go it won't be a huge deal and I doubt you'll really regret later in life, but it is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I think everyone should try to experience even if they don't end up having the best time.

As long as you find a decent group to have an afterparty with you can't end up having too bad of a time. I say go if you can find a girl.

well as the complete nerd that i am...even tho i had a rather cute girlfriend when i was in high school...b****...i found prom a complete drag...u dance...thats about it...and the music is usually pretty terrible...there are only so many hip hop songs about f****** anywhere that i can take...at least play some dance music...or techno...but no...it was bs music...heck my prom had 1...1 slow dance and it was the last one of the night...personally...i think prom was a waste of time and money...so many better things u could be doin...i actually wished i had taken my girlfriend to the arcade in town and had played ddr until it closed...would have cost less and would have been more fun...and the dancing would have been better too...never seen so many left feet...or so many people just try to hump each other outside of football or porn...so yeah...my advice save ur money...buy a video game instead of a tux...

Prom is a waste of hundreds of dollars. You're better off going to see that movie instead.
