Tips on a 20 Year High School Reunion

Twenty-year high school reunions are the perfect chance to catch up with old friends. After all, it has been two decades since you lobbed spitballs at one another in homeroom, slapped each other with towels in the locker room and dared to eat the lunch lady's special Thursday surprise. Just make sure you take some precautions against embarrassing yourself before going.

Dressing

Try not to wear anything you used to wear in high school. You were much younger back then. Dress conservative or business-casual. Men, wear some nice khaki jeans with a buttoned-up shirt. Women, go for the summer dress with high heels. And if none of these options appeal to you, just come dressed like someone who still does not live at home with their parents.

Bragging

People often brag about what they have been doing since high school ended. Take pride in your accomplishments and share them with your former classmates, but try not to go on and on about them.

Former bullies

If a certain classmate bullied you in high school, try not bringing that baggage to the reunion. Forgive and move on. Be nice if the person makes a genuine effort to apologise to you for terrorising you in your teen years. People can do a lot of maturing in 20 years. Get that fake smile ready if your bully acts like he never treated you poorly, then walk away when he finishes talking with you.

Apologise

Do not act like an angel if you were a bully yourself back then. Apologise and make up with anyone you bullied. Even if they have got over it and are downplaying your apology, it is still a nice gesture. Be classy, not trashy.
