    I think the same about that too, see I'm all mixed up...
    But don't you feel like if you go, your going to have to go looking your best, with your outfit and car. And people will still be there trying to say things? Sometimes to be honest I think its a lot of effort.

    I don't know if you know what I mean
    Yeah I'll want to look my best and I'll go in a suite but forget the flashy car I'm just going in one my my mate's standard ones.
    At the end of the day it's really not that deep lol tbh I don't really care that much if people did care what I looked like, though I doubt they will, because I won't be seeing most of them again anyway 😂.
    I would honestly go if I were you, think you might regret it because everyone else will be out, but it's completely up to you.

    That's actually so true, like the outfit alone is a lot - then a flashy car like you after that, it's some huge occasion, its true its not that deep!

    I'll think about it for a couple of days, my prom is in July, so i've got a bit of time left

    Exams are soon to be over and proms coming...

    What is everyone doing for prom?

    If your not going why not?
    If you are that's great, have a good time.

    Anyway I don't know if i should go to prom, I'm having mixed feelings.
    One moment I don't want to go because I don't like certain people. But then its the last time with all these people the ones I like and those that i don't.


    Is anyone feeling the same?
    Like you, i was quite conflicted at first but i eventually decided to go despite not liking the majority of my year because i thought i would regret not going. Dresses and dancing aren't exactly my cup of tea either but why not just see how it is :T

    I've got a bit of time to decide, my proms in July. However when you went, did you find people judging you? Or anything like that? Also did you go in an amazing car?
    The thing with my year they're really competitive.

    AWH lol, sorry I should read properly. And I know what you mean that you don't know what dress to get, that's why i'm trying to find out if it's worth going.

    Maybe if the people in my year were nicer and more accepting of other peoples' individuality (anyone who doesn't carry a Nike or Adidas bag is literally considered to be a freak at my school), I might have considered going along to my school's prom, yet I don't regret my decision to not go. If conforming requires spending hundreds of pounds on outfits that will probably only be worn once, I would rather avoid it... Besides, why does prom have to be the only way of celebrating your achievements?

    I hate parties. Still going though, mainly because I've already bought the £20 ticket.

    Really? And I thought £20 was too much for a prom ticket, unlucky.

    On top of that getting professional pictures at the venue cost money too ... It all adds up to a higher total cost

    I did not go prom either. Did anyone stay at their same school?
    My college is a secondary school and also a sixth form so I basically just stayed at my college could not be bothered for new school, new people, new teachers. Although sometimes change can be a good thing but everything happens for a reason.
