Anonymous: So my prom is today and I feel sick with nerves. People I don't know are sitting at my table and I get embarrassed very easily. I find being around people really hard and in the uk prom is a lot about drinking and I don't drink. I want to spend the night unnoticed, how do I hide the fact I am not going to an afterparty? And how do I enjoy the night?
Just be sassy. Like fake being super outgoing. To not get embarrased rwally easily just believe youre immune to insults, compliments etc ( im also really shy so this helps a lot to not turn into a tomato). And make excuses why you cant go to the after party like someone at your house is ill and you need to take care of them. Just a subject that nobody can really poke at you for such saying you have a curfew because theyre probably going to pressure you to go to the after party and drink.
