Becoming Prom King and Queen

If you not only want to look like a prom king or queen, but also want to be the king or queen of your prom, then read on to find out what it takes to get the job done!

It's Not Just About Popularity

At one time, prom may have been a big popularity contest where the best-looking guy and girl were crowned king and queen, but things have changed and it's no longer just about who has the most friends and who wears the coolest clothes. Many schools require you to get good grades, participate in extra-curricular activities and be a well-rounded student in order to run for prom royalty. So how can you become a candidate? It's easy - someone has to nominate you and another person has to second that nomination. Then you can start your campaign and run, similar to how people run for class president.

Nice Guys Don't Finish Last

It's great to be pretty and popular, but mean girls aren't going to score any points with the classmates. The same goes for guys! It's important to be genuinely nice (no one likes a fake) and get to know everyone. Don't just hang out with one group of people, like the jocks and cheerleaders or the drama club, but widen your circle of friends. That way, more people will know who you are and give you their vote!

All Eyes on You

Winners of the coveted crown will have a moment to shine in the spotlight as you give your acceptance speech and dance with each other in the middle of the dance floor. Remember to thank all of your classmates and teachers for supporting you!

  • No, but my friend is.
  • I'd like to, but I'm scared I'll lose and embarrass myself.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

You should grow comfortable with yourself before you come out. If you're not certain if you are indeed bi, then you shouldn't slap that label on yourself yet. Take some time to really think about how you feel, but don't worry too much about it. Your sexuality isn't everything. You have plenty of time to discover yourself as person. Don't rush it.

Well, they should be the same person. In my personal opinion, your significant other should be your best friend. You should be able to hang out, talk with, and share your life with your boyfriend/girlfriend just like with your best friend. So basically, both.
