are you a senior? cause i am, and i have just decided to do whatever i want b/c, if i embarrass myself, i dont ever have to talk to these people again, and if i get lucky, then i can talk to them for the rest of my life. i am a girl (you could probably figure that out from my name) and i went single to my prom (it was just last night!), and i had a blast!!! i could talk to plenty of people, and having a date was definately not a big deal at my school. however, i did ask a GUY to come with me, but he didnt' really want to go...and you know what?? i found out from a mutual friend at prom that he wanted to go with me, but he thought it would be too awkward to ask me to go!!! point is, if you have a certain girl in mind, ask her! and don't worry about your imperfections...acne scars won't cover a sweet personality...i know this sounds terribly cliche, but if your friends are that focused on such superficial stuff, then are they really your friends??? i had a bunch of friends that were REALLY mean to me my sophomore year, and i roomed with them on a trip, and i basically walked by myself behind them the whole way...they wondered what was wrong...i told them, and got quite lippy...i "broke up" with those nasty people, and now i have a completely new circle of friends who care for me and respect me, and i have even had a mini-romance (with that guy who was scared to ask me to prom) since them...just go with your gut feeling...even if you have to change friends! you'll feel so much better afterwards!
