Wait. A Buzzfeed link that's not a several-dozen page slideshow? What the hell is this.

Is this where I say that I'm glad that I never went to any dances and had to deal with any of these "problems"? Or should I act appropriately meek, awkward and jealous of all the cooler and more popular people in school because I "missed out on some of the best years of my life."

22. You make reservations at a restaurant your parents told you was fancy, but turns out to be no better than Applebee's or TGI Friday's. (For senior prom, no less.)

Only dance I went to was my senior prom. I went to his senior prom two years later as the hot college girl (in my own mind, at least) in the barely there dress. Prom is a lot more fun when you've got no curfew, a hotel room, and some cash to spend, I'll tell you what.

prom blew dog. my cheating GF/original date then went with a guy who had been a good buddy. i wound up taking a good friends (recently ex)GF as she had just caught him cheating and they had been together a long time. he brought a random skank. and we were all at one table. awkward.

My prom was fun. I ended up going with a good friend of mine (who was also smoking hot!). My friends and I had a great time that night. One memorable moment was when an ex-girlfriend showed up with her brother as her date! And for the record, I did not "just break up with her" so that she had to scramble to get a date. I broke up with her in December.

"what? I'm 18. I can't smoke in here. Let me go out to my car and have a damn cigarette!"

and chug multiple cans of natural light. I still didn't get laid.

Jr. High dances were better because they were all awkward and they always played paradise by the dashboard lights. How can you dance to that? they still played it...always.

22. Trying to figure out just the proper moment to take a big chance with a missy who is ready to play.
 
2012-12-04 07:32:59 AM
I couldn't dance at the two dances that I went to. I looked like an idiot. One song (that tells you what to so) caused my date to push my off the dance floor until it was done.

The only other awkward thing was the (one and only) time my date did an ass grind on me. I looked like a deer in headlights since i had no idea what was going on and we agreed that would never happen again.

/She still dated me for a four months until we went off to university

Opportunity: Hot teacher you bumped into in the elevator does a double-take, winks at you. Says, "hey, you look good in a suit."

Awkward: Mumble something unintelligible, shuffle off to find mediocre-looking date.

Oh and my prom was on a gigantic boat so your argument in invalid. My date looked gorgeous and I looked even goofier than I do now.

Try slow dancing to Stairway to Heaven!!! What are you supposed to do there at the end?!!

When you take one girl to the senior sweetheart dance, get a blow job out in the car, take her home and then go meet up with another loose school beauty and bang the hell out of her in the back seat of a car while her best friend is driving you around. Kathy H. and Nell D. You made that night a legendary one for me! Thanks!

My friends and I threw a kegger out in the woods as an alternate prom. More people showed up to our party than the prom. Kinda funny seeing all of these people in tuxes and dresses stand around a fire and drink. I left just as the cops showed up. I got to hook up with the girl I had my eye on all year. It was like a cheesy John Hughes movie (redundant?).

I am the student council sponsor at our high school, so we are in charge of homecoming and winter ball dances. Here's what I've seen that sure was awkward for me:

Seeing underwear because the dresses are too short.
Catching a glimpse of cooter because the dress is really too short.
Watching kids "grind" as if the anal sex never ends.
Seeing my student council president's rather ample boob pop out of her dress.

/I love teaching high school.

True. She may not be much in the face department but "dem" are just perfect.

14. When you forget to make dinner reservations.

That was hilarious and intentional. The guy had a tablecloth and candlesticks!

22. When your "friend" throws an after party, invites your date (a mutual, close friend) and deliberately excludes you.

You wouldn't be embarrassed to go to Denny's, while the two of you were in a prom dress and tuxedo? I don't think I've ever seen that, before.

Different worlds. When the right gets all bootstrappy about "Welfare Queens in White Coats", etc. I wonder if they've ever actually met any of the 20%+ who live below the poverty line. That included my entire world in high school (the hills of SE Kentucky). Prom dinner was actually Jerry's, which is a cheap Denny's knock off. And we loved it, because it was the only time we got to go there. And I went to the fancy private school (though I was one of the poorest students, my friends who I considered amazingly wealthy lived what I would consider solidly middle class lives in hindsight)!

The advantage of that is that now that I am part of the 1%, there is very little that will embarrass me. I would still wear a tuxedo to Denny's or jeans to Le Bernardin.

One of my worst memories from high school was the gym class final "exam" which was a farking square dance, complete with authentic hillbilly music. And this was a decent sized school in an upper-middle class part of St. Louis, not Bumblefark, Tennessee. But man, what a big "fark you" that was to 21st century teenage mentality. And you know how hot and uncomfortabe it always is inside school gymanisums even without the added embarrasement of do-si-dos and fiddlin' music.

So you don't care to have a cultural knowledge about a dance that has its origins in Celtic pre-history. You do understand that the choreographers who develop all the cool new dances have studied square dancing? No? Too bad.

Correct. I have absolutely no interest in dancing and never will. I think it's common knowledge that most guys don't and only attempt it to meet women.
