Connected to my previous question, what do you do at a dance where you know very few of the participants and you have no date?
What I ended up doing was mostly standing next to the DJ and modifying the visuals that I had created for the event and thinking about my life. I said hi to some people that I knew, but, they all had dates and I didn't want to interrupt them.
The dance was not a school dance. It was advertised as an alternative homecoming. There was loud 90s music (the dance was 90s themed), dancing, and refreshments. Instead of hanging out by myself and being sad in the corner by the DJ, what could I have done to be more socially active and enjoyable?
