    I have about 2 actual friends and many acquaintances. On the whole I have felt isolated, and lonely during sixth form. I don't get invited to anything, and act passive aggressive in response, leading to a downward spiral of negativity, jealousy and overall disappointment socially.

    Should I attend the end of year prom and have a good time or just stay home and watch DVDs?

    Don't go as it sounds like you dont really want to.

    Its completely up to you and how you feel, those two friends that you do have sound solid, you should be grateful for those two you don't need lots of friends, just a couple of good ones

    But just think about it logically, if you know that if you go if you are going to dislike it and not enjoy it then don't waster your time going. But if you think actually I'll go with my two solid friends and try and have a good time, have a few drinks and then you can always maybe come home early and watch DVD'S.

    Its completely up to you! x

    I didn't really want to go to prom and I didn't enjoy it that much when I went, but you kind of have to go... It's your prom. It will be good to see everyone all dressed up and have some nice casual conversations with your teachers.

    If anything prom just felt like a glorified school disco. Just go, you'll probably regret it if you don't.

    This. I was expecting an actual prom. We got a glorified disco with basic party food. It was nothing special and I would not have missed out by not going.

    If you don't want to go then don't. Just make sure you want regret missing out. But it's not something I recommend if you aren't interested in parties, aren't particularly social and so on. Just don't let those qualities control you.
