God. I hate being thirteen. And Homeshcooled. No proms for me.

Last year we had a friend who was homeschooled come to our prom...have any high schools nearby you can go to?
People cant just go to someone elses prom!
In america you are allowed to invite anyone you want to your prom right?  Well we aren't but i think its good like that because its about seeing everyone(or some at least) for the last time and being with your friends in school etc

don't sweat not having a prom ... my junior year my bf at the time stayed up till 4am the night b4 and fell asleep on the dance floor.  My senior yr I went with a friend and he ended up ditching me to make out w/ someone else the whole night. it's really not all it's cracked up to be. wearing the fancy dress is fun though.

yeah.. but schools have rules they have to uphold-- at our school (I went to three different ones.. it was the same rules for all.) you had to be at least 15, and no older than 20 in order for them to issue a guest pass for you to attend Prom..

Hmm....I probably only want to go to a prom so I can make a pretty dress and show it off.

actually, my boyfriend transferred out of my school in the middle of the year, so i'm really happy i was able to invite him even though he wasn't a student there anymore.

Prom is not what its all crack up to be...........

At my school we only have a junior prom. So last year I went. I'm an overweight girl and have yet to even dance with a guy, nevermind date them or kiss them. I 'kinda' asked a guy but got no response, so I was rather depressed. My friend, a sophomore at the time, kept pushing me that i had to go so I decided I would and asked her if she wanted to go with me (so I could at least have a friend to bring).
 
Well I knew my school could spread rumors and wasn't completly accepting but I had no idea. Seniors I didn't know where talking about "the junior bringing a sophomore" and about me being gay, which I wasn't (not that i have anything against it but I'm not). Other juniors where talking about me being gay and till this day all my friends keep "joking" that I'm gay and if I make the slightest joke about anything they back away from me like I'm hitting on them.

I like the idea that I broke down the barrier of everyone being forced to bring people of the opposite sex but still, some people won't talk to me now...

And to top it off, prom wasn't even that fun. Where the prom was held was so small there was hardly a dance floor. You couldn' move and the food was horrible.

I didn't however spend money blindly like everyone else. I took an old homecoming dress (black spaghetti strap with a white strip across the chest) and altered it into a pink and black halter, with a slit of pink. The only money I spent was on the limo - did my own hair and makeup. Some people spent thousands of dollars, I spent about $150, counting the limo.

yea but in america you have all these dances and stuff like winter formal, junior and senior prom and all this, aren't they all just the same! We just have one at the end of year 11 before our GCSE's and its more special than doing it all the time.

and how old are you in 8th grade? 13?14?
