I'm graduating highschool this year, and idk if I'm going to grad cruise, which is coming up in a month... I got a $55 dress, so I would be a shame if I don't go...

But I don't have a date... I was just debating whether or not I should go or not... Out of my friends, only my friend and I don't have dates... And out of the whole school, probably less than 10 people don't have dates... So it would be sad if I paid to go just to sit alone.

Everyone really wants me to go, but I feel like they would be preoccupied with their dates...

Prom is later on in the year, but I hear it's a even bigger deal than a grad cruise... and that everyone actually gets dates for this event... so wouldn't it mean I would be even lonelier for this?

Arughhh help meeee~ Tell me how ur grad cruises/ proms went:

Did you go alone?
Did you go with friends?
How did you ask your date?
Was it worth it?
Was it fun?



Omg****** I didn't know I put this in general gaming, is it possible to change it?

I'll answer just because it's in General Gaming.

I don't like proms or any socializing events at all, but since it was the last year with my high school friends/classmates, I attended. It was worth it because I met the girl who eventually became my gf. It was quite fun.

haha yeah, mods can move them around.
If you ever put something in the wrong category, just report your post and ask them for it to be moved to the proper one ^.^

Also, it depends on what your into.
If dances and big formal settings are your style, then go and have a blast, you don't need a date.
Personally those settings were never for me, however ^.^

I did not go alone. I ended up going with some friends. One guy's mom called a limo for us so it was like....5 people in a giant limo. It was nothing less than awesome.

I didn't just go with those 4. I had other friends and we had a table of about 10 people. Most of them had dates but nobody really said anything if you didn't have one. No big.

There was a girl who was sort of my acquaintance at the time and she didn't have a date. She'd always talk to me about her personal issues and stuff and we played games together sometimes. She turned super b****y after I asked her and she agreed, though. She started acting like she was entitled to orchestrate everything we were going to do and wanted me to pay for everything. A few days before the prom day, I just told her I'd rather go alone. She got really angry. But I have no regrets.

Our prom was on the supposedly haunted ship The Queen Mary. Hell yes, it was worth it. Food wasn't so great, but that prom was my first time being with all my friends while we were all dressed up in a more classy environment so it was, at the very least, something new.

Fun? Well, we didn't actually do much. But being with everyone was fun. A lot of us, even the ones with dates, didn't dance because the room got so stuffy and uncomfortable. We had an ice cube fight and some girl poured like 10 ice cubes down her date's shirt since he threw one down the front of her dress on accident. Nobody got mad though, it was just hilarious. Afterward, the limo peeps and I stayed out til like 4 in the morning watching random movies.

So? Tell them if you don't want to go and that is your final decision. I did and I don't regret it at all. What, are they going to disown you for not wanting to do something?

Did you go alone?
No, even though I ask almost every chick at my school. I went with a childhood friend who went to a different school :)
Did you go with friends?
Yes I did, n they didn't have dates but they had fun. And one of them found a date at the prom.
How did you ask your date?
I asked if she was available for prom.
Was it worth it?
Yes, I had lots of fun

How did you ask your date? I asked
Was it fun? It was alright.. then again we had crap people organizing so go figure?

Anyways, as for whether or not you want to go. It really is up to you. Just to let you know my gf at the time, her friends went as a group of girls with no dates. They seemed to have fun. In the end it is whether or not you are comfortable and whether or not "YOU" would regret not going. It seems you have a friend who is also going solo so its not too bad right?

I wouldn't worry about what your friends would think whether or not you did go or not... Its all about you.

Did you go alone? No.
Did you go with friends? No.
How did you ask your date? Went up to her and asked her. If you are rejected, so what? Better than regretting never doing it.
Was it worth it? Good experience but not life changing. :D
Was it fun? Yes, until I found out she had a boyfriend...

I graduated in 08 and was not allowed to attend my prom because two freshmen ratted me and friends out when we were drinking in the boys restroom. lool (those were some fine times...) The lame part was that I already had a date and she had already bought her dress, so she was pretty upset as well.lol I ended up just going to the beach at night with her and got a bit buzzed.
The next school day after prom, everyone that had spent a lot of money (prom ticket $60, tux/dress, limo, hotel) were disappointed and regretted spending all that cash. Overall, right now prom seems like a really big deal; but its really not. If you end up going that's cool but if you don't; it's not going to be the end of the world. Just my .02
