I understand many people say it's a lot of fun and stuff, but that doesn't mean that it's not overrated. Movies and books publicize it as this big glamorous event, when many people say they don't have fun or it was a waste of money or something else.
You buy a dress that's expensive or you rent a tux that you try and not spill food on and then you go out and dance and sweat and that's it? You rent a limo for one night of stardom. I understand that it's nice to go out of High School with a huge bang and everyone looks their best and such, but why spend hours with people who you probably never talked to, the majority of your high school career?
Is it better to go with a date? Or with friends? Or a date and friends? Is it too much money? Is it really all the movies had made it up to me? Is it really that fun? Should you go at least once?
I want to hear both sides--boys and girls, those who went, those who didn't, those who plan on going, and those who aren't. I wanna hear some opinions.

Lol I went last year (jr. Sr. At my school) and it was nerve racking girlfriends house. Her dad made jokes about killing me. Got stabbed by the flower or whatever by her grandma lol but it was a great time I'd recommend going if you can, ours was a lot of fun and I got to spend some time with my gal and she was all dressed up and all so she felt pretty it was just a win win situation =P but I don't know who I'm going with this year I might just ride it solo or ask a friend I don't know just do what You want were young so party up!
