    I'm friends with quite a few people but I don't really have a set group of friends so I can imagine myself not really having anyone to hang out with and just floating around awkwardly :-/ Also, some of my friends aren't going anyway

    I feel like I would regret not going, but then again I've pushed myself to go to parties where I've ended up being really awkward (and just tagging along with people who already have their own friend group) and I'd always not enjoy it and always wish I didn't go.

    Plus, I'm not moving school so I'd seen most of my year group in year 12 anyway... Idk, some of my friends are telling me to go but I just don't know

    That's your own choice to make. To be honest though, you won't miss much if you decided not to go.

    I didn't go and I do not regret it whatsoever. Still in contact with all of my friends from secondary and I also go to a different school out of town now. Hell I didn't even go to leavers assembly, spent my entire day in London and I probably had a better time on my own in the museums.

    The day after prom people told me that it was rubbish, so yeah.

    Of course your friends are going to tell you to go, but at the end of the day it is your choice and they won't judge you for not going.

    I was the same in high school and I still went and had loads of fun - if you want to go, go. Even if it turns out being awkward, no one really cares. And if it turns out great, bonus!

    I enjoyed mine, but mainly because it was well structured and we had an awesome DJ who actually put on our music request of Free Bird :rofl:

    Thanks, that makes me feel a lot better… especially as even though I probably won't move school there's a small chance I might - I don't want to feel guilty about not going in the future. I still haven't decided but I'm leaning towards not going to prom

    ps. going to museums sounds like my kind of day out lol xD
