QI have our Homecoming dance coming up in two weeks and I don't have a date. My friends keep telling me that I can have fun without a date (they all have dates) but I feel like I need one because I don't like to be left out on the slow dances. The guy that I wanted to go to the dance with said he would go with me but he already had a date. I have the biggest crush on him and he always flirts with me and of course I flirt back. Should I give up on him and just forget it or should I try to dance with him or even hook up with him after the dance? And should I try to have fun at Homecoming anyway or save the hassle and maybe even tears and just not go??
I think that you should definitely go to the dance anyway, even without a date, because at least your friends will be there and stuff, and you'll probably have a good time. It will be a lot better for you than sitting at home by yourself thinking about everyone else having a good time.
There's usually some guys that go to the dances without dates either, so you won't have to sit all the slow dances out if you don't want to.
Also, I don't think you should give up on this guy, since he said that he would go with you but he already had a date - it sounds like there's a pretty good chance that he's interested in you. If the girl he's going with doesn't seem to mind, go ahead and ask him for a dance and stuff. If she seems to be upset about it or anything though, cool it 'til after homecoming and then try to hook up with him.
I hope you have fun at the dance.
