So I'm in my final year of school (year 11) and my prom is coming up. Well, not really, but they want the money now. Its £30 and I still have to rent a tux on top of that.

I don't know whether I should bother going. Everyone I ask says "Yeah you should, its the only chance you'll get." But why pay money to go to a crappy pub where I get kicked out if I drink (during or before), I can't smoke and I have to hang around with a load of people I don't really like?

On the other hand, some of my mates are going. My best friend Jay isn't going to bother, but all my other friends are. I get the feeling that even if I go, I'll end up getting booted out anyway (making the whole thing a total waste of time).

So UG, is it worth going? Should I just go and get high instead?

I haven't been to any of the 6th Form do's in my school and I don't regret it at all
Expect a tirade of pathetic rumour and gossip the next morning, then after that it won't mean a thing

I wouldn't bother

might as well

i didnt go to mine, waste of time and money imo, especially to hang out with a bunch of people i didnt like much. lol
they were asking for £60, and most of the guys i knew were spending another £200 on their tuxs etc.

some girls spent up to like £600! NOT A JOKE :|
Top lel.

I didn't go to mine, I didn't have a particulary fun night not being there and I kinda regret not going, I'd reccomend you do.
#10
you should go. i was in a similar position and i had a ****load of fun. just get pissed and/or high after
#12
I'd say go normally, but if you don't like anyone there, just go to a bar or something and get high with some of your friends in a place thats not awkward.

30 pounds? 50 pounds? What the hell? A ticket to our prom is only €10.

Go, you've not got much to lose.

And yeah, get high beforehand.

If most of his friends are going then he can spend time with them, but yeah, they do get expensive.

Yeah, if I were in the position, that might convince me to go.

Last I checked the point of friends was you spent a fair bit of time with them anyway...so that's hardly a swaying factor
Whereas pissing away potentially 100 quid on a night you'll soon forget is hardly worth the while
#23
I didn't go to my formal, and it was a great move. it turned out to be a pretty **** night, and I saved a lot of money and just went and got drunk at a mates house.

My friends mom got us all (like 20) kinda drunk so prom was awesome anyways. It's the afterparties that you want to go to--my school rented out a college campus for us all to pretty much go ****in nuts on. The amount of sex, drugs and god knows what else makes for a night to remember, so get good and smashed!

Of course you spend time with friends, I was just saying that he didn't have to spend time with people he didn't like if his friends were there.

Unless he doesn't like his friends, which doesn't seem likely.

If your friends are going, and you got asked out by a nice girl, then you should go. It won't be so bad, but if you think that you'll spend the majority of the evening doing nothing there, then you should think about it.

But you can also party afterwards! That's also a lot of fun, so if I were you I'd go and get smashed and partay like a rockstar
I just need about $3.50

Go you loser, you only have one prom for your entire life...How bad could it be? Get drunk and enjoy yourself.
#30
I'm not going. It sounds somewhat boring. All I cound do is stand around in a pretty dress, eat hors de'oevres (sp?) and dance to music I hate that is so loud I can't hear what my friends are saying. Oh, and anyone I would want as a date to prom isn't going.

/rant

Dances aren't my thing.
#31
I'm not going to mine
I just don't see why i should.
I'd prefer to see my Girlfriend.

i didnt go to mine, instead i went to see devo. i didnt really see the point in hiring a suit paying to get there paying for a meal and dancing to bad music with people i didnt like.
#33
i never went to mine and i dont exactly regret it or anything
Sig space available, give me some praise
#34
Im going to go to mine, but I know it will be ****. All the good girls got dates like 2 years ago (seriously) so only the nasty ones i dont know are left. Im only going so Im not a lonely bastard. Im just waiting for someone to say theyre throwing a party afterwards so i can get wasted there

If you don't go, you'll probably find yourself looking back and wishing you would have gone. Especially if you've got a girl to go with. And, youre in high school, you dont have to start worrying about money till you get to college.

I never went to my prom either. I pretty much just ****ed around with a bunch of friends (drinking and getting high) for the whole day and then hit up the after parties. It was great.

I heard it sucked too.
