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!

Im sorry that you has such friends that seems to enjoy entertaining themselves by being mean to you.  They is just people that you hangs out with cos you says you hasnt anyone else to hang out with.... not friends.  I doesnt think you should think of them as friends either and then its gonna be easier to move on. Is there any way you can hang out with other people by eg [what other posters said] taking up the new activities? And you has friends on KW :) :D

If they call you fat and stupid, they are not your friends. Your so called 'friends' are just using you. You need to find your truest friends. Clearly, they are not your truest friends.

Society will not be soft to you always, just because YOU are soft. You must have a strong background. Also they are not your friends. You know what they are doing to you?They are packing a gift box looking all attractive (friendship) and filled with hurt ...like Pandora's box.  Just move on. Be alone n discover more of the world. Or just make new friends.I was in a state like you some months back. Now I moved on n I have 3 best friends. That time I thought too that they r my only friends. You will not find the world until you set out for the world.

They are not your friends, really. You should leave them and move on. This might sound difficult, but being alone is better than being with an untrue friend. You'll make better friends soon, anyway. Plus, WE are here for you! :D
