How do you feel about having a date for the grad/prom? : LUSENET : Miss Nostalgia Feedback : One Thread

I'm pretty much strictly anti-prom-date. What are your views on spending something as petty as a prom or graduation dinner/dance with on specific person?

i have a date, since i have been dating the same boy for almost two years now, but i would have no problem going alone. it's more exciting that way, i think. and i have no belief that proms are romantic. i mean -- it's a high school dance. come on. you know there's going to be cranberries songs and death metal instead of romance and roses. :)

Considering I HATE all school dances and functions, I doubt I'll even go to the prom. If my friends do somehow talk me into it, I'd at least like to take a guy friend along just for the hell of it. I'd rather not go if I don't have a date because of the way people in my school act about the whole 'haha she doesn't have a date, what a loser' situation. blahblahblah, su kick me in the butt ;P

There's nothing wrong with going stag if you're whole school isn't composed of about 3/4's assholes that will make a big deal out of it.

Weee, I should ask Damien...

You know I'm tired when I write You're instead of Your.

i went to an all girls school, and not one person went alone. though we all SAID we would, no one actually did it.

i like men. yum.

(that did NOT answer the question)

My freshman year of high school a bunch of my friends and I all went stag to Homecoming. It was a blast. Then I got one of my friends to find me a date for our Snoball. BIG mistake...this guy was such a loser. Awkward and he reminded me of nails on a chalkboard. Worst guy-experience to date.

This year I went with a friend to Homecoming and we had a good time. Snoball I went alone to, and it sucked. So, I'm still trying to figure out where I stand. :)

I always go stag... a whole group of my friends and I go together. It's better that way... Then, if you feel the need to dance, you can dance with every guy that came along if you feel like it. You're not just tied down to one guy.

Besides... I hate when people just randomly pick someone to go with JUST so they have a date. It's bad that people are so insecure with themselves that they can't even go without a date, you know?

Suzen, I am completely for your idea. I LOVE RUNNING AROUND WITH MY SHOES OFF! I'm that girl too :)

My senior prom, i didn't have a date. Actually, i didnt decided to go until the last minute. I wore jeans, airwalks, a disheveled sport coat, a tie and a sideways ball cap. I'm not one for dress up events.

a "specific person" seems rather pointless if you ask me. from what i know, at least. when i did the whole thing, oh .. two years ago (things surely couldn't have changed that quickly)with "specific person" intact, by the time you got to the hotel .. took your formal pictures, ran around fixing this and that and then finding that "specific person" again for more pictures, you're pretty much tired of seeing them. The novelty wears off once that pair of shoes you bought (which in a week will go on sale) start to pain your feet. Then again ... I'm pretty much Anti-grad anyhow ... was and always have been. And I'm more than glad that I don't have to do it again. It was a wasted night .. pointless and over exaggerated by movies to be a "big blast."

Though, I suppose it's not all evil. If you'veb a good group of friends that you're gonna be with that, can actually go a couple of hours without endless complaining. If anything will make a grad. liveable its your company .. don't waste time on just one "specific person"

and so i'll stop

Hey baby... you know how i feel about the whole date thing! we'll be the lonely ones together... unless that guy of my dreams asks me to go and then i'll be totally happy, but until then i will live in a world of dreams. hmmm a guy would be nice to go to the grad with huh? yeah i think so... but you know who i want to ask Suz, i just have to get the guts to do it!

i like the idea of going to the prom with a date,but thats because the people I will be going with are my beat friends, I would be hanging with them anyway, it's natural and i will have a kick ass time! I want to scream and mosh in my poofy pink dress, and come on to everyone.In a way, all of my friends will be my dates, you can never have too many dates!

-- margaret (, February 10, 2000.

Last year Calvin took me to my prom, but this year he isnt and im awfully sad about that. I dont want to go alone. I think i might ask one of my guy friends if he will come with me. or unless another guy asks me before hand and is okay. hehhe.

I stumbled upon your page after following about 3 or 4 different "Links" pages. The progression was brad to allison to allison to...your page. Anyways, as far as the prom "issue" goes, I'm going with my boyfriend of one year (who's at NYU right now). I'm not much of a dancing person, but I have unfortuntely succumbed to the forces that be (ie my friends who want me to go to the prom). At the very least, I'll be able to spend a great deal of money on a glamourous dress (wait, i already did..). So now I'm currently looking for a pink purse on ebay that matches the dress, which is this gorgeous aqua beaded confection with a light pink tulle overlay. And it's not even poufy! My boyfriend, I can tell, is somewhat reluctant to go. He would much rather be doing the Robot to some Stereolab song in his room. But, out of consideration, he's going, and now I'm also trying to find a Pucci tie on Ebay. Anyways, I really enjoyed looking and reading through your page. I can really relate to your love of clothes and interest in the internet. thanks for keeping this page up, and making it the great site that it is! -beverly

The best part of a prom is dancing all night in stockinged feet. It's one of my favorites.
