Alone. Cried when I got home, everyone took pictures of me on their cellphones. I tried to hang myself when I got home and my parents delayed college to try and help me. Did college and did shit. I don't like remembering it.
>>25514894 Yes. I asked the girl I liked and she said yes, but when we got there, she pretty much ignored me the whole time, it felt bad. About an hour in I realized I was better off hanging out with other people so I did and it was alright. Still, a huge waste of money.
Lucky for me, everyone had a date, because everyone had to take another girl, even if she didn't want that. Class had a 50% ratio of boys and girls. Girl was pretty qt, but was obviously repulsed by me and disappeared soon afterwards. I then just went home, fapped and played CS.
Went to an all boys school in the UK, so we didn't have a prom. There was an end of years party though.
Nearly all the teachers went, as well as literally everyone in the year apart from me. I'm not kidding, I was the only one not to go. The day after, everyone was asking me why I didn't go, what I was doing that night instead etc. I just told them all the truth - it sounded like shit and I enjoyed spending the night playing video games on my own.
The best bit though has to be the speeches, one of which was the headmaster's. As some backstory, our school had an entrance exam, and no one knew what score they got, only if they passed or not. During the speech, our headmaster revealed that I got the highest score on the exam out of everyone who took it (roughly 2,500 people I think), and he wanted to invite me up to the stage.
My friends, who all knew I wasn't going, told me the next day they burst into laughter and everyone looked around anxiously trying to find me, before they explained I wasn't there.
I had seriously nobody. I was such a loser that I didn't even have loser friends, just myself. I sat on 4chan and watched shows on my computer. I didn't even want to go to my graduation but my parents made me. It was so humiliating, having to stand in that back room with my entire graduating class by myself. No one liked me or wanted to talk to me so I had to wait for the ceremony to start for hours in silence by myself until I could walk and leave. When I think about highschool I'm both bitter I was basically completed alienated/bullied and relieved that I don't have to go through something like that again. Didn't go to my associate's graduation and I won't for my bachelor's either, fuck graduation ceremonies and fuck parties and fuck dances, fuck those memories
>>25516176 I didn't go to my graduation either. My graduating class was about 800 students and I knew from going to my brothers a few years prior that it was just a popularity contest of how many cheers and shouts normies could get from their friends. I knew when I walked up on stage it would be almost complete silence. Oh yeah, not to mention the thing was held in a fucking basketball stadium.
Didn't go to either of the junior or senior proms. Pretty sure I just stayed inside and played Runescape.
I also didn't go to my high school graduation, but they had a live stream of it so I watched it from my room, alone. And I watched all of the graduation ceremony of the year before to get a glimpse of a girl I had a crush on. Fuck just kill me
>>25514894 went to prom with cousin and she left me for Kyler, star kicker on our shit sportsball team. People constantly coming up to me while I was sitting at my table spinning a plastic cup saying my cousin was getting kyler'd
I've been a huge weeb since middle school, and in my junior year of high school I tried to become an exchange student in Japan. I was accepted, but then the 2011 earthquake happened and the whole program was called off temporarily. I didn't get to go.
My parents felt bad and decided to give me a trip to Japan as a graduation present the next year. I graduated one term early because I already had enough credits, and spent the spring backpacking across Japan and working on farms.
So I was out of the country when my prom took place.
I had started dating a girl in my junior year who I was convinced was the manic pixie dreamgirl I had always wanted because she actually approached me first and didn't mind that I was awkward and semi-autistic. The relationship was really rough (I was hospitalized for attempting suicide once), but I still wanted to try to stay with her for the rest of my life because I thought I'd never get another chance.
She broke up with me over e-mail about a month and a half into my trip and immediately started dating another guy who I knew. She went to prom with him.
>you went to prom? This board is so dead. Fucking normies!
So to be a robot you have to be an edgy loser? True robots when to prom with a date, went to an after party, and had sex afterward, all without feeling anything. A true robot doesn't have a hard time finding meaningless relationships with attractive girls, because he possesses actual intelligence. A true robot may even be married, however he most likely would choose to be alone.
>inb4 people who have sec on prom night are Chad
So ~90% of guys who went to prom with a date are Chad? No you are just sexually inept, an uncommon trait.
It's unfortunate that /r9k/ has developed into autistic edge lords throwing a fit over society stealing the ideal lifestyle they have never actually worked for in their lives.
No. I like to imagine I was playing Final Fantasy Tactics alone in my room that night, but I might be mis-remembering that. At any rate, I was playing that game a lot during my later high school years, so it's plausible.
I don't recall any occasion where I ever went to any after-school dance or "social" function, but I did a few nerd clubs - debate and math. My reasoning on the others was "I just got home from school for the day, why would I ever want to go back to the building that I just escaped for the evening?"
There was one interesting mandatory outdoors "morality play" on drunk driving just before this prom that I didn't go to, so everyone watched it. A wrecked car was unveiled, the gf (actress) was dead, and the bf (actor) was like checking her out, omg she's dead, then a (real) cop car pulls up with a real cop also playing a cop, the sketch escalates... then a (real) ambulance with real etc came round the corner, maybe a fire engine... oh, something's in the distance... Then the helicopter touched down and I guess they took the "dead girl"... aaaaaand SCENE so don't drink and drive kids have fun at prom, and okay, this is actually a fairly impressive morality play guys, well meme'd, good job.
Awkward dancing and social rejection aren't a common experience, and typically aren't a problem if you're not insecure. Also, people have sex after prom; it's normal, they are teenagers. It's not something only "Chad and Tyrone" do with "Stacies".
It's a school dance. Most kids have fun at it, otherwise no one would go to it.
But most importantly, you didn't answer my question about Italy. What is one fun thing about your culture?
It's a school dance. Most students aren't there on drugs, and know how to use protection. It's probably one of the more innocent events of high school life. Also, I've never heard of anyone being suicidal after being rejected to prom. I mean, that would be insecurity to the point of it being a mental illness.
>>25517293 You and me had similar experiences. A good friend of mine and I did not give two hot shits about prom, so we ordered some pizzas and played Mario Kart all night.
We had that Shattered Dreams fake accident crap too. Nobody in my high school class died on prom night, but they sure as hell started drinking and driving the summer after graduation. I think we're up to 20 dead alumni now.
>Went to junior prom >oneitis had said yes, go with her group and stuff >she stops talking to me the day of >only dances with me once, only at the pressure of all of her friends that said she was treating me shitty >end of the night she leaves without me with her ex >never sent me the pictures taken beforehand, got yelled at by my family for not getting pictures
Senior prom was significantly better, went with a friend and we had a good time. No drugs or sex or anything degenerate. We had a good time dancing and I was able to get pictures with her.
>>25517438 I can tell you're a woman because of how little you think of this. Mostly everyone on a prom is high out of their minds, the whole event is hyped up to be that big day of your life that if you don't go to you're a huge loser, which results in friendless guys that are dime a dozen getting depression, which spirals out of control and ending in suicide.
>>25517515 Chad is that jock who would beat you up and break your appendages for so much as looking at him, then get away with it because his daddy is a lawyer.
Yep, I danced with my friends and I had a blast. Oddly enough my friends where complaining about having to by flowers and the typical "gentleman" shit, so I lucked out. I did some silly dances and had a couple dance circles formed around me, it was fun as shit. I was asked by a couple of chicks that weren't up to my standard so I rejected them and they got pissed as shit when I said I'd rather go by myself.
I kind of miss high school, I didn't have a tough time with other students, it was just my grades man. I skipped classes to hang out with chicks in the library and have some "fun". I would only go back to fix my GPA.
>>25514894 To be quite truthful with you family, I fought tooth and nail to excuse myself from anything that involves not studying-related (not that I'm a conscientious student though, I just like school to be school and nothing else) or anything held outside the school.
>knowing in detail how several of your high school classmates are doing (dead)
Actually I have one recent story on that, but as for the people themselves I just left them all behind. Somehow, a handful of cards reached my mailbox over the course of two weeks: "we're updating our contacts, plz verify your address for HS database", I threw them all out and they've stopped. They were rather insistent for a bit, 3 or 4 of the same card.
Recently a childhood friend from the neighborhood who I hadn't kept up with was shot dead by niggers, which was a highly unusual homicide for the county. As you'd expect, it later turned out that he (the friend) was mixed up in drugs and made the fatal mistake of having had drug dealings with niggers.
>>25517589 It's a minority-heavy school (i'm a nigger myself), but I did get a shit ton of attention for the rest of the year. A lot of the sluts at my school finally gave me the attention I wanted, but I was already gearing up to graduate in like a month and a half.
>>25515190 >"yeah, I went to prom, but the girl I had a crush on dropped her drink on my shoes so I started crying, ran home, and masturbated to the thought of her stomping on my throat until I died" >"holy shit, fucking normies get out" Did you even read those posts my dude?
>>25517641 The only people I actually keep in touch with are the few who were my friends. The rest I hear about because my dad apparently distance-stalks the entire high school on Facebook.
Half my communication with him consists of: >Dad: "Anon, Jimmy Whats-His-Name died in a car crash and Stacy Cuntnugget is pregnant for the third time." >Me: "I have no idea who the fuck those people are." >Dad: "Sure you do. They were in your class. Don't you remember them?" >Me: "My class had 900 people and I hated almost all of them. No." >Dad: "Ha-ha-ha! Anon! You're so funny sometimes! I'll sign your name on the sympathy card for the Whats-His-Names and the congratulations card for the Cuntnuggets."
>>25517350 >otherwise no one would go to it. you go because you're expected to or else you'll be called a loser and ostracized >It's not something only "Chad and Tyrone" do with "Stacies". You're right, it's something only Chad and Tyrone do with every girl, not just stacies
Yes but the entire class had to bring in their parents or other close relatives, made people not feel awkward at the least. Didnt dance for shit tho, went up to my hoter room and got drunk waiting for my two friends to come up from the dance room
>ask girl to prom >she says yes >go out for ice cream >go full retard and ask her to be my girlfriend >start spewing pathetic emotions >she says i'm "boring" and doesn't want to go to prom with me anymore >asks a different guy to prom >all 3 of us have a class together >no time left to ask out another girl
>>25514894 Not that I would've gone anyway, but in our school you had to have all your coursework done and have near perfect attendance and behaviour in order to qualify for the prom. Needless to say I didn't get to go because I'm a literal retard and couldn't finish my GCSE Food coursework, literally the easiest school subject ever. Not that I missed out at all; it looked really shit. Just a non-alcoholic party with all the cool, attractive 16 year olds getting group photos together. Fuck that shit
>>25516878 Just wanted to say this post is painful. I've had girls gang up on me telling me I'll never get a girlfriend, the girl I loved called me a faggot, and just constant humiliation my entire life. Do you know how pathetic it is for a man to be bullied by girls? And what the fuck am I supposed to do about it or who I am? For once in my life I'd like to be able to say that it's not my fault with being called an "sexually inept autistic edge lords throwing a fit over society stealing the ideal lifestyle they have never actually worked for in their lives."
>>25514894 actually a qt3.14 asked me to prom (cuz boy girl ratio was like 1 to 3 and no girl wanted to go solo) nevertheless I sperged out and left her to drink all night with random school guys, she never spoke to me again I think it was when I blew my last chance (it was 5 years ago already) WAKE ME UP PLEASE
Never went to prom, but I did go to a school dance once. Was a sophomore and asked the girl I'd liked for years, because she was the only one who would talk to me and liked my jokes. She said yes because she needed someone to go with, and I actually tried to look decent. Got a hair cut, new suit, contacts even. And I got there and she wouldn't talk to me, she ended up getting all over my best friend. Best friend kept engaging back, they were grinding. Stopped being friends with him all together, and let go of the girl as well. Overall, persuaded me to not go to a dance again
>>25514894 If I had known what I know about myself now, I would have went, but that's too far gone now. I figured shit out as I was walking out of the final exam for that stage in life (finishing college), as always.
I did. My classmate with whom I was supossed to do the traditional dance (my country thing) didn't come. She didn't even apologize or tell me she wouldn't come. I stood aside and watched everyone have fun with my bleak, dead eyes.
>>25517908 that shit was fire senpai hope you're doing well man, this is gonna sound gay as shit but hearing someone's voice made me realize that everyone on /r9k/ is an actual person and that I should be nicer to people when posting
I haven't slept in over 30 hours so I'm tired as fuck and thinking weird hippy shit so excuse me
