Should I go to prom by myself? I don't have friends, my sister's group said I can't go with them, and my GSA didn't want me either. I want to go though but with who?

Hello, I hope you are doing well. Regarding your question, if you want to go to prom then go. Unless its mandated by the school, you do not need to have a date. If you feel comfortable being alone, it is okay to be alone. Social events are about having fun, whether its by yourself or with other people. If you believe you will have fun, then go by yourself. However, if you don't think you'll have a lot of fun, it's okay not to go. High school isn't forever, and years from now prom will be a distant memory. Make the most of what you can, but don't worry yourself about it too much.

Of course try yourself. You don't need anyone's companion. And if you don't succeed it doesn't matter. Try again. Be brave, have your own path of success. And be very carefull with friends. Because you will probably find later. But those friends that come after success, it doesn't mean they are indeed true friends. Sometimes people are jeslous when you finally make it, some other are there because they couldt stand you at your difficult moments. Be brave and things will happen. If not now, then one day. Be brave and everything will slowly change into something better this time.

When I went to Prom, I went with my friends! You don't need to pair up like everyone else, just be who you are! If your friends are all paired up then go be the life of the party. Don't let not being paired off affect you. 99% of paired couple never end up together anyways, so why do that to yourself. I never regretted going by myself. The number of comments I received about how good I looked was enough to keep me happy. I also looked forward to the prom awards, that was a fun time. If you don't feel comfortable, leave early! You don't have to be there the whole night.

I always believed that noone is alone in ther loneliness. If you don't have anyone to go with I'm sure there are others who are in a similar situation. Maybe you can meet someone at prom who was also indesicive about going alone but you both had the courage to finally go. What is important though is to not build your hopes up. For myself I always hoped for miracles in these kind of situations and I always felt disappointed afterwards. Going to prom is not going to change your life because something happens there, but because you chose to be brave enough to go.
