Do you think proms are overrated?

Having never attended one I can't be for ceartin thta they are but I'm still pretty confident that they are. I skiped prom my junior year and probbabbly will my senior year.

Not really, it's a once-in-a-lifetime thing that everyone should experience. It's a rite of passage :)
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 6/20/03 - 7:15:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
My rite-of-passage will not involve a hideous $250 sequined dress.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 6/20/03 - 7:17:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
hell no, they are a blast... but the best part is at the after party...
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 6/20/03 - 7:20:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
not so much as overrated as a cliche.
19 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/03 - 12:18:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
I didn't go. Everyone in my class told me I would regret it. I never have.

prom sucked, my girlfriend was pissed because she spilled a little wax on her dress when blowing out a candle and acted a bitch for the rest of the night...not that that was out of the ordenary, I didn't get to go to the after part because my friends didnt want her there, and I didnt' get any

oh and it was the only school dance I went to

When I moved to the US I was amazed people place so much values on these. I think a party should be a party and you shouldn't have to dress up for it. Needless to say I've never been to one, but I get the overall scoop of it. It just looks very boring to me as a European, certainly in combination with the high legal drinking age.

ditto to what kcsgrl said

I think they are fun, but they are overrated. I didn't go to mine but I went to the part afterwards.

i've never been to any school dances/parties. they always seemed stupid... i'll prolly go to prom but i'm not spending a lot of money.
19 yrs ago - Friday 9/5/03 - 3:42:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've been to one and skipped last year. They suck. I'm not the type of girl who gets dressed up. I doubt I'll go to any more.
19 yrs ago - Saturday 9/6/03 - 10:01:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
haha! I love that pictures, looks exactly like something from my prom.
19 yrs ago - Saturday 9/6/03 - 8:46:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
I didn't go to prom either, and it doesn't bother me in the least. So I didn't spend 300 dollars on a dress or get drunk in some hotel. Darn.

I'm with KikiPeepers on this one.

Rite of passage - yes I will agree but it's more than that.

More of my reasoning later!

we have formals here, pretty much the same i guess...what an anti-climax! i was fully against going but my friends roped me into it...$400 later, i was not impressed
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 10/1/03 - 12:19:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah ours are called formals, mine is pretty soon and I can't wait. We over have one dance thing and thats saved for year 12 or senior year as other people call it.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 10/1/03 - 1:33:10 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm probably the one person who didn't go to an after-party
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 10/1/03 - 3:00:10 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, but you kind of have to go to know.
My freshman year of college, when I grew my hair really long and started smoking lots of pot, my younger girlfriend figured out how dumb *prom* was, coincidentally enough...
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 10/1/03 - 5:43:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
They suck on a wholey cosmic level.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 10/1/03 - 9:33:47 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, prom was horrible my friends and I just hung around and said hi to everyone and then left but the after parties were awesome!
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 10/9/03 - 2:37:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
probably, but i suppose i'll never know since i didn't go.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 10/9/03 - 2:39:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Very much so. I hated my prom.
