"Stuck at Prom"
« on: August 06, 2008, 05:24:12 PM »
Ladies and gentlemen, maidens and monsters, I have an embarrassing confession:

I never went to the prom.

Donations can be sent to the American Society of Dateless Wonders.

Because I never went to the prom, I don't know what proms must be like exactly.  It's a mystery to me.  They must be pretty wild, however, given that people in attendance often wear Duck Tape dresses and tuxedos.

Did you go to the prom?  If so, did you wear something made of Duck Tape?  Which of the outfits presented at the website that I linked to above do you like the most?

I skipped mine to play World of Warcraft. >_> Not that it really mattered; I'm not a party-goer, and I had noone to go with. Personally, I think the whole idea's silly, but I also thought 95% of high school politics is ridiculous, so I'm the wrong person to ask.

It's extremely darn rare here in Belgium. Went to my girlfriend's "prom" a year ago though. If you can really call it that, it's more like a school party arranged by the students of that school itself.

I half agree with you. If you notice any prom would be "supporting" one thing or another. Now, if it was just for the students for fun, why pay to have tickets then, to go out and have fun, when every day your having fun..I went to 1 of my proms and then the next day completely bi----- about it.


Prom is fun right? Well, what about those that don't wish to pay, thought it was a free society.

Yeah, I didn't go to mine either.  *sniffles*  My longtime boyfriend broke up with me like a month or so before it happened, so I didn't have anybody to go with.  Unfortunately, most of my friends already had dates, so I didn't have anybody that night.  I made the best out of it by playing Final Fantasy III/VI all night, so I enjoyed myself.  I feel kind of bad as that would have been an unique experience.  Maybe I could do a story and simulate the experience...  ;)

Some of the outfits on the site are a little cute actually and I wouldn't mind wearing them.  I find it a little creepy that the couples match so well.  If I were to go to prom, I wouldn't want to wear similar outfits like my date.  Halloween Parties are the only time where it would be okay to wear similar outfits.

I went to both of my proms, junior and senior.
I'm never one to pass up a social outing, it seems.
And I had a friend try to talk me into doing the duct tape thing, but I was more than a little hesitant.
Didn't trust the girl, she's not that creative and I didn't want to be trapped in a plasticy tube called a dress.
I went for a corset instead.
Much more breathing room.

I never went to any proms, dances, sporting events, or even graduation in any school from middle school to high school. I hated everyone there, the hell with those preppy assholes.

I didn't go either.  I hated 99% of the people I went to high school with.  *laughs*

I'm not really the dress and high heels kind of girl anyway.  Especially if I have to duct tape my boobs.  :P

I actually went to my Senior Prom and quite enjoyed it.

My school, being an arts school, had about a 65/35 female/male ratio, which ironically made it impossible for me to get a date since all of the girls went and got themselves a date with a boy from outside school within 20 minutes of buying a ticket. 

Therefore, I went alone and had my parents drive me.   :)


Naturally, of course, once things got started, the girls tended to abandon their dates of convenience and dance with whoever.  It was an impressive night, including one particularly showstopping salsa dance with a girl who liked me.  I wasn't even aware that the dance where everyone just stops and watches a particularly enthusiastic couple actually happens in real life.  All in all, it was great fun, a generally amusing experience.

Hmmmm, lets consider.  High heels and dresses.  Yep.

I went all 4 years of high school.  Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior year. 

I did not wear a duct tape dress; however, I will admit to using duct tape UNDER my dress my senior year... it was this snug, strappy, teal green, sequined number.  *ponders scanning a picture and uploading THAT to the real life picture thread*

That sounds awesome!!

Well, sadly I never got to go to prom.  I had a chance when I was in seventh grad to go with my senior boyfriend but my parents would never go for that.  In ninth grade I wanted to go with the guy whom I was horribly in love with and wanted to date but his parents wouldn't go for that cause I wasn't high class snob material.  So he just didn't for the sake of not wanting to deal with his parents.  But we did have quite a few flings. . .no sex though. . .  Well he took my best friends sister to prom and started dating her. . .broke my heart more.  I am now married to this bastard and know he wanted to go with me (actually hated the girls guts, which I revel in).  Then I switched schools and moved.  At this new school I didn't have anybody who would take me.  I started dating the guy that I am now married too who was now in college.  I got pregnant and dropped out of school before the end of my junior year when I would have gone to prom. 

The end of my miserable high school existance. . .

Oh I know people who loved High School.  And I loved the second High School I went to.  The people were nice.  The teachers awesome and I love to learn.  BUT most of my High School existance was miserable so that year and a half in a good school can't make it unmiserable.

I inhabited every possible level of the high school food chain, from the guy who even the Otaku pick on, to the mentally ill weird guy who nobody will make eye contact with, to the cute guy who everyone has a crush on, and the popular leader with a large collection of contacts.  I had an interesting high school career, to be sure.   :)

The people who LOVED high school are the ones who made it miserable for everyone else.

But of course, they're the ones who are miserable in the real world now.

I loved my second high school and I wasn't one of those people who made it miserable for everyone else.  I also knew a few very very lovely people who loved it and did not make it miserable for everyone else.

I, thankfully, was raised to not care too much what other people thought of me.  So I was blissfully unaware of what everyone said behind my back.  *laughs* 

So High School wasn't miserable for me... more like a terrible inconvenience.  I could have been role playing.  ;)

Well, I didn't give a rats ass what people thought or said about me, but I usually heard about it.  Being chased around called Satan or a Terrorist is pretty hard to ignore.  I was quite the scary outcast kid that had an outcast following.  I was the leader in any group that I was a part of (born leader).  But I also came from a horrible little town full of closed minded stupid people who were preps or gangsters. . .

I usually got "lesbian".   But that started in middle school cause my best friend was deemed a lesbian because she punched the crap out of a guy for grabbing her ass.  So we were both lesbians, but lucky her she got to move to another state.  :P

Because I told on this sleazeoid guy in art class for fondling my friend between the legs.  She wouldn't do it because she didn't want to be called a lesbian.  I think she's a topless waitress now.  Oh, and I was a lesbian because I liked Melissa Etheridge.

I didn't know until some years after highschool when a cousin married one of the "popular" girls who told me these things.  *laughs*

I'm actually very surprised by the people who came out since high school.  Some were a shock, some were a given... a couple were very good friends.  :(  It makes me sad they didn't feel like they could tell me back then.  *sigh*
