If you didn't have a prom date would you still go?

I much preferred having a date to a dance, of course, but going without one can be fun too. As a matter of fact, going without a date can be better than going with someone if your date and you aren't really at all serious. I have had good times at a dance with a long-term girlfriend and I have had good times going stag, dancing with friends, chilling out with no worries. But the few times I've taken a date that I didn't really have interest in or didn't really have interest in me, I spent half the time just standing around with them or separating to hang with different groups. If I'm not dating them, I'd rather go stag. And I have had plenty of female friends do the same thing for the same reasons. I know girls all seem to be expected to have a date, many preferring to consider another single female friend a date just so they don't seem like they're there alone, but there is nothing wrong with going free and dancing with who you want. Just enjoy yourself. Screw everyone else.0
