tickled1, not sure. My daughter has a class with this boy and the teacher was asking everyone if they were going to the prom etc. When she asked him about it, he said the girl he was going to ask was going with someone else. So she told him to 'man up' and ask someone else. [Smile] Don't know if he did or not.

Talked to the lady having the dinner this am. 'The girl' told her daughter that she should not worry, that she was my son's date and intended to behave that way.

Things are looking up, folks!!! [Smile]

Now, if the other boy will just behave himself, we should all have a good time.

Maybe if there is a problem, SHE will tell her boyfriend to back off.

Time for a bit of a confession. I was asked to the prom by a houng man I had dated for 2-3 months casually. I said yes, and we made plans about a month prior to the event.

In that intervening month, we double-dated with my guy's best friend a few times. My heart turned to the friend, and he asked me a week before the prom to go with him instead.

This was the late 1970s. I was taught to honor my promises. I told the new guy no and sid I couldn't even date him for awhile.

Went to a nice dinner at our small community's finest restaurant. He paid for that, I bought the prom tickets ($25 a couple, about the price of dinner then), and we bought flowers for each other.

Had a good time at the dance and afterparty. He had realized myfeelings were not as deep as his, and we saw each other a few times afterwards.

The friend of his and I dated a bit and remained friends even after we began to see others. He told me that he was glad I hadn't accepted his prom invitatikn because we didn't create a mess.

What I 'm trying to say in my long-winded way is that HS romances can be life lessons and leave people to be friends IF everyone is upfront, open, and honest about expectations. I hope they have a beautiful dinner and dance.

Years from now they can remember the night fondly and teach their own teens about how young love is fickle and ever-changing. And how one's word is to be honored with the most positive attitude possible.

Hang in there, Linky. Being a mom and wanting the best as teens grow into young adults isn't eash, but it is so worth it.

Linky, I see your signature, tag-line thingy with the Matthew scripture.

I realize this is totally off-topic, I'm sorry. But have you ever heard the a cappella group Take 6 perform their song version of this scripture? It is so gorgeous & gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it.

Here's a video of them performing it live:

Well, the big day is here. I will be so glad when this is finally over.

We decided to stay out of it and let our son work his way through this one on his own.

Am going over to the hostess' house to help cook the dinner, so will be around a while to see how they interact etc.

I am praying this will go off without a hitch and all will enjoy themselves and behave.

Would appreciate your prayers too!

How blessed he is to have you to walk beside him thru this ordeal.

He will have the tools to help someone else. Compassion is a great gift to have.

Well, my son came home last night in one piece, but didn't say much except it was ok and he was really tired and went straight to bed.

I'm sure my daughter will get the inside scoop at school tomorrow, but until then I am in the dark.

The dinner went well. The other boy wasn't there and the kids seemed to be enjoying themselves.

I did see a photo on facebook of the other boy. Looks like he did go to the dance and wore a tux to match the girl's dress. Unbelievable.

Will update when I have more info.

Yeah, I don't think there's much chance of this relationship going anywhere. I hope not anyway. I would probably pop if it did.

Hopefully, it wasn't too painful for him.

So this other boy wore a tux matching your son's date??

Wow, how inappropriate to say the least. No doubt the girl had a hand in that.

Just hope your son comes out of it OK with his head held high.

beaches, I think he is doing ok from what I can tell. He holds so much inside.

The matching tux is just more low-class behavior by this kid (and the girl, if she had anything to do with it). IMHO all this does is make him look like and idiot.

Just when you think you have seen it all...

Or he may think this is the way to make an impression.

Chances are he has not been TAUGHT in these matters. I hope, for his sake and others, that someone will help guide him along and teach him how to consider the feelings of others.

Manners is not just for manners sake, it's for consideration of others. But manners must be taught and it may not be all his own fault if he just doesn't know about the finer points of behavior.

randi, Yeah, it seems that the only one who could have told him the color of the dress was the girl.

keebler, You are right about the manners. Both of them need a crash course. Shouldn't some of this just be a no-brainer?
