It's still only been a year since I graduated so it still kind of makes me sad. I'm a cute girl, I'm in shape and pretty. Maybe not the prettiest girl in my school but it seemed I was literally one of the only girls in my high school who never ONCE got asked to any dance. It still hurts my self-esteem and to this day whenever a guy insults me or dumps me I think that it's because I'm ugly, even though I'm not really
Honestly its most likely the guys were intimidating by how attractive you are. If a girl is too attractive then guys won't ask because they Dont think they have a chance. Its on them not you. But anyway wanna go to prom with me? Lol
"whenever a guy insults me or dumps me I think that it's because I'm ugly, even though I'm not really" Cause your life would be completely different if you had been invited to prom... Right? You would never doubt yourself or think you're ugly right?
I never went to a single dance in high school, at all.
Fortunately for you, the crappiest 4 years of your life are over and you get to look forward to adulthood. Who cares about what happened in high school? Only those who want to go back and relive it... and I pity them.
I've never been on a legit date, never had a girlfriend... I didn't even go to prom... I know how it feels, all my friends have/had relationships apart from me... I just get turned down and blown off by everyone :(
Don't be unset about it! The girl I went with told me she actually enjoyed getting ready, going to the restaurant and then eating our dessert after more the dance, then the actual dance itself. You didn't miss anything special
According to your comments 80% of the girls got asked. You asked 1 and gave up. According to statistics if every guy asked a random girl every guy got rejected about 3-6 times. (Let's ignore the case where he just asks his girlfriend.) So think about giving up after the first one. Getting asked for a dance is more about your vibes being a dance partner and your visibility than about your looks. I also wanted to be part of the official dancers of the opening ceremony of my prom but until I got the word of it all girls seemed to be taken. I asked a few but all said "taken". While a full meeting for the preperations I randomly mentioned that I would like too. One of the girls mentioned that she also didn't have a partner and she wouldn't mind. If I hadn't mentioned it, at least me and the girl would have been without partner and I don't know how many else. So it was pure luck. Also most guys/girls have their SO, crush or favorite dance partner in mind to ask first. After most are taken you would need to ask who isn't taken so you don't get rejected 10 times. I don't now the customs where you were but where I know you could also ad hoc ask someone else for a dance even if he has someone else. So next time just go for it and don't give up after the first time :)
Nope! Don't feel bad about it. I can say without a doubt this is how many men feel, as many women refrain from taking the first step and asking guys out. If you want something, you can't just sit around and hope it'll come up, you need to take the initiative.
Highschool guys suck, you shouldn't even care. You're cute! Why you worried about being asked to some crappy overrated dance by a highschool guy? Don't let yourself self-esteem depend on the dumbest type of guys on this planet. :)
I say, no. It's just life, and it really doesn't matter outside of high school, it's just a stupid dance, where the teachers and school staff don't even let you do stuff. So I don't think it's sad, plus boys aren't really worth it in high school.
