Did you go to your senior Prom? I went to both my Junior and Senior prom. I never went with a date which was the sad part but I did meet up or go with friends. My Junior year I went by myself and just meet up with my friends at the dance. My senior year I went with my friends and we had dinner before we went to the prom and then went to one of my friends house which is now my husbands ex girls house where we just eat some snakes and had some soda before going home for the night. My husband kind of regrets never asking me to go with him because he was scared I would have said no to him. I wouldn't have but he knows that now. I'm old fashion when it comes to dating. I like the guy to ask me out and not me ask him out. I had a good time going especially my senior year it was a lot better then my junior year.

Girl Do you mean snacks? Not snakes. this in one of those typos That Must be cleared up. I was asked to my junior prom but I wasn't the Sarah you know so I said no. Then by the rtime I changed my mind , it was too late . So by Senior year I wasn't even asked and didn't see the point of going. I don't miss it. At the time I didn't have a steady . Plus the idea of Having to wear a dress was not fun for me.

I didn't go. I had no desire to do it. My mom was very disappointed that I didn't go. She told me that is what she would have wanted for me. I hated the idea of it. The overly loud music. Being crushed into a gym or banquet hall with a bunch of other kids I could barely tolerate. Spending a ridiculous amount of money on a dress that I would only wear once. It didn't help that I don't know how to dance, at all. It's scary to see me do it. I avoid it at all costs. I didn't go to the school dances either. I hated those too. It just didn't seem like an honestly fun time. If I wanted to hang out with someone, I wanted to be able to talk to them and be able to hear them, not have to shout at them and hope I was heard. I also didn't like most of the music that people my age listened to. I was raised on classic rock. When I was in high school, that was when hip hop and rap really started to emerge and I hated it. Unfortunately, it was the music of choice for the dances.

I went I had a good time. It was really big what we had cause we where all about to raise every year and the teach would chip in to get a hole and rent out one there bit rooms for the dance. When you came in there was food and drinks and then you went in to the room they had tables and a dance floor. Most of the popular people danced and then people like me and my husband we just sat the tables spending time with friends maybe a little dancing. You don't need to know how to dance dance to dance. We had all kind of music playing and you could request music too. Both years I spend a $100 on the dress with is way less then my weddings. I've worn both more then once.

serialmommy, I could have wrote that myself! That's exactly what my response would have been, minus the not liking hip-hop and rap. But prom? Not for me! I did go one year, not as a participant, but to take pictures, and decided even more that prom was not for me! I'm not a dancer, so dances or clubs, anything of the sort just isn't my thing.

I'm a singer myself not to much of a dancer but I had a good time even though I might not always like the music I love to sing. Its a good way to take a night out and stay out late with friends. That is what I used the time for.

I went to senior prom my senior year of high school. My boyfriend asked me to go with him before we started dating and then a few weeks later he asked me out. I hate to dance, but I'm really glad I went to prom with him and now I can say that it's something I've done and I won't regret not going. My boyfriend and I are still together now and I'm glad we have that memory together and we went with each other. I think it's something I'll always remember.

Yeah I'm not big on dancing either some times. I went for the music and to have fun with friends. You really don't need to dance at a dance it mostly for the popular people and to hookup. I had a good time I just wish I had a different dress and that my husband asked me to go with him.

Aww, too bad he didn't ask :( Maybe he was just shy and nervous, which is cute of him. I know my boyfriend was always shy when we first met but he eventually worked up the courage and asked me to prom lol. Even though I hate to dance, I'm glad I went to prom with my boyfriend and had an experience I'll always remember.

I went to a private school, and we had no prom. That was one thing I missed about public school. We never had dances in private school or anything like that. Most of my friends didn't get a chance to go to prom either. Most of them transferred schools, dropped out, or went to night school. I was going through a weird phase my senior year in high school though, so maybe it's best I didn't have a prom! I'd want to burn those pictures if I did.

I didn't take any pictures of my prom we didn't have a picture stand either. We did have people taking them for the year book for the next year but most of the time its of a massive group of people so you can't really tell who is who. I kind of wish I had a different dress my senior year and that my husband asked me to go instead he went with another girl that left him once they got there. Which sucks.
