The only prom i ever went was a christmas prom, i went there alone and thats why it sucked too. From then on i haven't been to any of the christmas proms. Mostly because i'm not very fond of my class or school or the students. Most friends are in other schools too...

So i say what everyone says, don't be like me and take a partner with you and go. If you like the girl, just don't come on to her really intensly and try to make her smile and be friendly. Thats enough that i can share from my experience. dozingoff.gif

Ok, so a couple of days ago I decided my date would be the camera, because one of my friends said it would be rude to have another obligation, and my date would be like...left out. idk. but he made sense. I have a camera and am supposed to be taking pictures. would it not be rude if I had a date go with me, and then I had to go and take pictures?

Well as long as you made it clear that that's what you'd be doing, then no.

Everyone carries a camera to prom. At least they did when I went to prom. It shouldn't stop you from going with someone.

I also thought the title said porn.

You're not much good to her if you can't take her out and take some pictures at the same time. It sounds to me like you have a crush on her, but she's not one of the more popular girls. It also sounds like you fear rejection.

I'm not some kind of dating guru, but what I know is that if a woman makes eye contact with me and smiles, then there's no harm in going over and politely asking her out.

If she says no, hire an escort.

Why don't you just ask her to go as friends instead of some sort of date? I just went to a prom with a bunch of friends since none of us gave a damn about getting a ''date'' since its usually a bore anyway.

going as friends? no way do you ask girl you've hardly come into contact with to go as friends, that seems a bit cowardly . both people would be treating it as a date anyway , no point putting some non threatening label on it

I still think that's a bad idea.

I knew kids on the school newspaper / yearbooks staff who were "working" the prom and still had dates.
you're going to look like a total loser without someone.

I agree. Sounds like a cop out to me. It's best you get the experience of asking someone out sooner than later. If you just chicken sh*t out like a little pussy now, it's just going to be that much harder to do it as you get older. Next thing you know, you'll be some 50-year old loner with no grip on life, leeching off of society and wasting his days talking to himself.

'scuse me for being blatant, but take everything you said here and shove it up your arse. Pictures take a few seconds - you're not married to the camera, come on. Don't be a pussy and just ask her. When she says yes be sure you mention that "I'll be taking a few pictures here and there" just so she knows.

As someone was getting at before, in the States girls have a weird prom fetish. Unless she genuinely despises you (doesn't sound likely), or got asked by someone else, they will most likely say yes.

Whats to fear? If you don't ask someone else will.

Yeah that's true. and f*ck that guy who said it wouldn't work because I'll be taking pictures. I think I'll ask her. Only reason she might say no is that she is sorta stuck to her friends. I don't know if she's ever had a boyfriend. I know I've never had a girlfriend. maybe I'm afraid I couldn't treat her right. I think I can. i guess I'll just ask her and see where it goes.

It sounds like he doesn't want to be the only without a date...

I say just go for it.

I asked her today- and I just made it. she was getting in her car and just about to leave. she said she'd think about it, cos she wasn't really thinking of even going. but it sounds good so far, so thanks guys.

It's never lame to go alone. Dances aren't my thing, so I'd still prefer not to go.

Your attitude sounds like you shouldnt bother even going, but there is something deep inside that tells you to make the most of it. Follow that instinct

Now do you really like this girl? Or do you feel forced to ask her out? Having no grad date is not a big deal. It's just one evening in your life. It isn't as important as getting your diploma. People pump up grad like its the best day ever when really its just like any other formal event you will go to in your life. It's hyped up because people cant wait to get out of school.

Since your the photographer, your gonna be pretty popular around the event. Regardless of having a date, I'm sure you will be invited to some good afterparties

I like her, as a friend, and I didn't really feel forced to ask her, but at the same time, I felt I had to. I had already told my parents I was thinking of asking someone, and then I asked one of my friends for advice and they said I should go for it.

Like I said before, if she had asked me to go, I would have said yes right away.

But if she decides she doesnt want to go though, I won't feel bad, and with afterparties she probably won't want to go to, not being tethered to her may be a good thing.

EDIT: she doesn't want to go. said she was never planning on it, and she wanted to hang out with her friends.

but it's ok. ill just be arone
