I realized that because of my early graduation, I won't be going to prom and therefore haven't been to a single school dance. Unsure how I feel about this. Poll.

Edit: Dang it, meant to make poll public and not have more than one vote.

Didn't have one

Didn't enjoy mine. Despite being there with my girlfriend. (Now ex.) But I hated most of my school and didn't really get along very well with many people. Not that I was alone but that I just accepted that they were rather uninteresting and I let it be like that.

Proms and stuff are so damn overrated. You're not missing out on much really. Brilliant time to get stupidly drunk one last time and then never see these people again if you hate them.

Didn't have one. Won't have one. Never will. No regrets.

Edit: ^ what that guy said. Proms are fucking stupid. Especially here.

Same here. Dunno if they have them now in England but they certainly didn't have them when I was at school.

slash_GNR666 01-30-2013 05:00 AM

I think they do have them now over here but if I could I probably wouldn't go to it

I went to my ex gf's one. She was a year above me.

Then next year when it was supposed to be my one I went to Download Festival instead.

Proms are for preppy student president types. The after parties are good though, go to those.

Had one. Didn't go to it.

But I did go to I think it was 3 mandatory Military Balls back when I was in ROTC. It was literally mandatory. It counted as 70% of our final grade. Didn't care much for that. I only enjoyed it because I was in the saber guard and I got to swing a sword around. Ahhh swinging a sword around. Those were the days. :heart:

Not exacty a prom, but it counts as a dance too.

I hated most of the people in my year at school but my prom was actually pretty fun. Got very drunk and acted like a total prick, and for once didn't feel guilty about it in the morning.

T7E 01-30-2013 05:06 AM

Yeah ours was a "Presentation Ball" and it was alright.
Got righteously ****ed up afterwards

the_hoodster 01-30-2013 05:19 AM

I wore a top hat and cane for mine and looked like a total boss.

AtaBorMan 01-30-2013 05:41 AM

Nope, because proms are silly. What are you, twelve?

This is the only way to do it. :golfclap:

jrcsgtpeppers 01-30-2013 05:51 AM

i didnt go to my prom but i went to my gf's prom.

Sampy 01-30-2013 05:54 AM

Prom was alright.

The "Sixth Form Summer Ball" on the other hand, was fricking hilarious. We got hammered with all the teachers and then went to a strip club.

cptcomet 01-30-2013 05:55 AM

I did, and I had fun, but I wasn't the popular guy in school so it wasn't fantastic or anything. Strange thinking back to a time when I didn't drink.

Burgery 01-30-2013 05:59 AM

proms are way gay

Thrashtastic15 01-30-2013 06:31 AM

Went to one at a different school (female reasons). Didn't go to mine and instead extended the after-party into pre and during party so it was basically just a aparty.

Hydra150 01-30-2013 06:31 AM

I never went to my school's. Probably should've, alcohol would've been involved.

daytripper75 01-30-2013 06:33 AM

Yeah, I went twice. Once when I was a senior in high school, and then the year after when my (ex)girlfriend was a senior.

It was alright. I certainly wouldn't have regretted not going. Had I not had a girlfriend at the time, I doubt I would have bothered going.

Ah, so you were that guy.

You see, in your mind you think you look cool. In reality, everyone thinks you look like a knob.
