Since the beginning of the year, my friends and I have said we'd go to prom together (we're 4 girls). Two of them asked guys to be their date not long after so me and my best friend decided it wasn't a big deal to go alone together (we made a deal). She went ahead and asked a guy to go with her the same day after telling me this. So now I'm the only one left alone; I'm a really shy girl so no boy has asked me. My fiends offered (out of guilt) to talk to a boy to let him know I'm available, but I plan on saying no because that's desperate. Is it bad to be the only one going alone? How will I seem to others?
Is going to prom alone bad?

Working under the assumption that you will not get a date by prom, there are two possible scenarios.
1. Going to the prom dateless but with all of your friends.
2. Staying at home dateless without any of your friends.0
I see nothing wrong with going alone. I wish I had.
The girl I asked left me the moment we got in there. Ruined my night. Wish she had just said no to me initially.
I would of had more fun if I just went alone.0

if you want to go alone, go alone. I'm going alone. My best friend ditched me for a guy too. Don't worry about what other people think... not everyone is going to have a date. &you never know.. you may get asked to dance ;)
but if you don't want to go alone.. ask your friends to subtly hint to a guy (anyone you're interested in) that you're going solo &leave it up to him. Or ask some other friends to go.
Just enjoy your night :)0
