It's been forever, but if I remember correctly, as a junior I went with a group of girlfriends, and as a senior I went with a platonic male friend as I'd just broken up with my first real boyfriend. I remember having fun at both, but not many details.

Homecoming was more memorable. A guy who wasn't even my date got fresh and I beat him with my shoe.

I wasn't really the school dance type, but I was part of a group of friends that turned events that would otherwise be super cheesy into an entertaining time.

I was a little sh-t. I needed 2 classes to graduate so I went to summer school after my Jr year. I thought I'd probably quit if I stayed. So those two classes got me a 4.0 for my "Sr year". I regret being a little sh-t.

Not that I wanted to go to prom in the first place, but I could have gone all over campus handing out $100 bills and still not gotten a date.

I had a date for the senior prom, but something came up and she couldn't go. I never bothered with junior prom.

the guidance counselor called me into her office she told me she did not see my name on the purchased tickets list and I told her that was because I was not going to prom and she asked me why ? I told her to call my mom and ask her . Oh did she make the mistake of doing just that . My mom told her to mind her own business and to keep her nose out of our family business . That woman never asked me back to her office the rest of the school year . LOL no no prom for me ever thank God .

Yes I went to the proms and saved up to go because it was a memorable occasion. I went with my classmates instead of a date. I went to pep rallies but none of my classmates were there and I don't know why.

For me it was, but that was back when you had to wait for a guy to ask you. Given that I had a BF who was in college and couldn't afford it (adn wasn't interested) and everyone knew it, no one asked me.

If it had been the "dinner prom" format they started the next year I would absolutely have gone.

I actually did all of the posters and banners for the dances and other events in high school. I got out of class to work on them backstage at our school theater. Nonetheless, I never went to a dance. I just wasn't interested in dancing, still not. My dancing is limited to maybe one at a wedding, and fortunately my wife feels the same way.

I didn’t go to my prom. I was too busy studying in high school and didn’t have time to get a girlfriend and get laid.

Nope, didn't go to Senior Prom. Not sure if our school actually had a Junior Prom.

Don't know why I didn't go. High school was fine for me - no bad memories. I know I didn't have a date if I did go but I don't think that is the reason I didn't (my brother-in-law kept saying he would take me if I didn't get a date [yuck!]). I don't regret not going either. Hmm, maybe I just didn't care all that much.
