    I had similar thoughts before my prom too, but I'm really glad I went now. You'll enjoy yourself a lot more once you're there, you've relaxed a little bit and you can get dancing It's a really good experience and you'll remember it for years, by the end of the night you'll be glad you made the decision to go, trust me

    Either way the money's already down the drain

    1) you go and have a bad time = waste of money
    2) you don't go = waste of money (but the advantage of this is you don't waste your time)
    Sigh. Your logic makes sense but - but... The money.

    Hmm. I have a pretty good idea of what it will be like, due to the prom I attended two years ago and I hated that. This one will be in the same venue with the same people, only difference is there will be alcohol - yet another thing I hate. So if anything, I will enjoy this prom less.

    That thought would cheer me up but there won't be any food. All the money was spent on buying alcohol.
    I just went to mine. I didn't want to go. I loved it, we mixed up two schools (one 95% boys, one 95% girls), and I met a really nice girl and had a great time with my friends.

    Go mate, you will regret it if you don't.

    Have you got anything better to do though? I mean, I'm not too keen on booze and I still liked it, although I did get pretty buzzed.

    But I hated the last one which was in the same venue as this one and everything so I don't see how this one will be different. But thanks for trying to console me.

    To me, anything would be better. I could be reading my book, for example and it's killing me that I can't!

    I didn't go to either of mine, despite people telling me how much I missed and how I should've picked up my award etc I just can't bring myself to care, if you truly don't want to go you don't have to

    You could also go there for 10 minutes and leave if you hate it.

    True. As it is, I've booked a taxi to collect me at 10:30pm so I'm only staying for 2 1/2 hours. I don't care if that rude.

    Monday is a very odd day to have a prom, i'm guessing it's cheaper to hire a venue.

    You can always get more I guess, it's a trade off between money lost/your desire not to go, if you dislike of wasting money is greater then go, although I assume the dress can be returned?
