My faith in humanity

It is stories like this that let me know that the next generation isn't totally lost. No, I didn't go to prom, in fact, the prom was cancelled due to lack of interest. I don't know who decided that they needed at least 50 people to hold the prom and they had about 10. I was actually approached by one of the more popular girls to ask if I would go to the prom - you know, buy a ticket. I was anything but popular even if I was actually pretty cute back then. I said: "No." I wasn't interested then, and the reunions every 5 or so years have been held by those popular girls trying to have that prom that wasn't held. Still, despite my not wanting to go to the prom, I have no problem with others wanting it. This is one story that makes it seem worthwhile having a prom.

It's held once in every 5 years. Why not grab the opportunity?

Not everyone wants to relive high school.

@BarBaraPrz That's true but others are too excited to get back to their Alma Mater in high school.

@dodoazo high school, especially the public one I graduated from, were little better than hell for me - I go to the reunions at Holy Cross every time, but because most of us left after the junior year because the school was basically being closed, we shouldn't really call it a "graduating" class... McCallum was where all the bullies I had left to go to Holy Cross were, but I figured I could endure 1 year of it and be done. So, no, the prom holds no interest and the few friends I had there are either gone some place else or as disinterested as I am. I have gone to a few reunion functions, but the big dances I don't bother.

We had nothing like this when I was young, I have no idea if proms are organized now, I am not at all sure.

I know that proms are a much bigger deal these days, kids getting their folks to rent stretch limos and stuff.

@ElicBxn I am not sure there is this habit in most European countries.

It was very thoughtful of the girl and her boyfriend to reach out to someone that would probably never be invited.

I always wanted a prom like in the Hollywood movies held in the school gym. My prom was held in a hotel ballroom and I did not enjoy it at all.

I think the one they wanted to hold was also going to be in a hotel ballroom. The school wouldn't have taken a chance of the wood floors being damaged by the girls' heels. "Sock hops" of the 50's and early 60's were so done by then.
