    I wasn't interested back then.

    Besides, kids teased me back then, and I didn't want to go. I didn't think they'd allow my boyfriend outside my school to attend. I had terrible cramps that day. What else?? Oh yeah... the dresses.. I wasn't interested in shopping for a fancy dress that I could only wear for one...

    Ruined Experience

    A major problem I had with my mother my senior year was the issue of prom. I didn't want to go. I never expressed an interest in going, and said I wasn't going my junior year. She still bought me 3 dresses, "in case" I changed my mind. I didn't go, and the...

    No my junior, not my senior, or any other persons prom. I have never, and will never go to prom. It's lame imo. I never went to any dances, am not much for dancing in public. I rather just dance alone in my room, or with someone special. Prom = waste of time.

    Junior year, my BF was 34 and you couldn't bring anyone over 21. So, we just ate some delivery pizza, put on our song and danced to it, then headed to the bedroom. He said he felt bad for depriving me of prom, but I didn't mind. I had fun...Senior year, I had dropped out of...

    I Went As A Junior

    I didn't go to my class prom, because I didn't have a date, my boyfriend was in his late 20's, plus, I didn't have the cash. But, I went to a prom as a junior. He was desperate for a date. I felt bad for him at the time. So, I went.

    I never went to prom,

    because my high school, didn't really have a prom, however we did have school dances. (It's probably all the same sh*t anyways). I think we had 3 per year. And I didn't attend any of them. There's two reasons why I didn't attend: First of all I was never asked by any girl to go...

    Missed It Twice

    There were about two proms I could have gone to but didn't (junior and senior year of high school). The basic reasons why I didn't were because one, I didn't have a date/girlfriend, and two, prom is expensive, and I didn't have any money. Plus, with prom being so expensive, I...
