hi! my senior prom is coming up in a few months and I’m at a lost of whether i should go or not.. There’s a lot of secular music and vulgar dancing. me and bf went to a semi formal and was there for only and hour before we got up and left because we were uncomfortable by all that was going on around us. it’s my senior prom though, i want to get dressed up and go out and have fun for the night this will be my last high school dance. but i want to fun in a good way and not by vulgarly dancing with my boyfriend. and my boyfriend feels the same way. we want to go but not feel like were sinning even though we’re not. any suggestions?

There’s no sin in going since you wouldn’t participate in any objectionable things, but since it makes you uncomfortable and that’s totally understandable, just turn it into your own night of fun! If you have other friends (whether they go to your school or not) that maybe are single or don’t want to go to prom, get together with them on the night of prom and get dressed up and go do whatever ya’ll want! You could either go out to dinner then go somewhere nice like a garden, or you could have it at someone’s house and eat dinner there and have dancing if you wanted, etc. 🙂 And if it’s just you and your boyfriend, turn it into super-awesome-get-dressed-up-date-night and do whatever. 😉

I went to Prom twice in high school and I loved it! I mostly just talked and danced (appropriately) with my friends and had a great time! It’s no sin to go to prom if you’re not participating in the bad activities. Many people forget that Jesus was best friends with drunks, thieves, and prostitutes. He wasn’t sinning because he didn’t partake in any of the bad activities, and he also witnessed to them. Have fun at your senior prom and if anyone asks why your boobs aren’t visible in your dress or why you’re not pole dancing with everyone else explain to them your values and witness to them 🙂

^Not that there’s anything wrong with pole dancing. Pole dancing is amazing.

But yeah, go, have fun! Likely the other kids will be minding their own business. You don’t have to like their business, or engage in said business yourself. 😛

I agree with Slinky! Enjoy yourself!!!!! Just because you’re uncomfortable with what everyone else is doing doesn’t mean you have to join. Make this a fun night with your friends and your boyfriend! And maybe shake your booty just a little bit :p

Seriously, go have fun. Like, just hang out and laugh and have fun. You don’t have to participate if you don’t want to. And if you have a bunch of friends who feel the same, go as a group and have a blast.

I don’t see anything wrong, basically the way everyone else said.
(That said, I don’t want to go to my OWN prom, but that’s because of anxiety and a general inability to dance at all. Sorry if I’m hypocritical here, feel free to ignore me)

If it makes you uncomfortable, don’t go. But there’s nothing wrong with going and just doing your own thing. Even if you don’t want to stay for long, you can dress up, take pictures, eat some food, talk to some people, and then just maybe stay for an hour and then go do your own thing. Just do what makes you comfortable.
