Yuppers, I went to my junior and senior proms. I also went with a couple of older guy friends to their proms, too. So, let me regale you with two of my prom stories (names have been changed to protect the innocent, haha).
Prom #1--I was a sophomore. He was a senior. We were friends, though I think he wanted to be more. He asked me to prom, as friends, and I agreed (duh, of course--we're talking PROM!). The night went nicely--he paid for everything, and the dance itself was a lot of fun.
When it was time to take me home, he escorted me up to my apartment. He asked me if he could have a kiss, and I said I wasn't comfortable with that. So he asked if he could get a hug, instead. Absolutely--I agreed and leaned in. Well, he decided to steal a kiss, anyway.
SLAP! I smacked him right across the face for getting fresh and stomped inside (I found out later my mom was lying on the couch and heard the whole incident--she was ecstatic at how I handled it, LOL).
The guy called me the next day apologizing, but our friendship wasn't the same after that. To be fair, though, he truly felt bad for what he did. I think he was even crying about it.
Prom #2--It was my senior year, and I was taking one of my friends from church. Very nice guy. To be honest, I had a bit of a crush on him. However, we were totally going as friends, so I certainly wasn't going to make it out to be anything more than that. Because I wanted to look my best, though, I had my dress hand-made (I have pictures at home, but they're not scanned in--if I get time, I'll edit this post to add them in).
Just mere days before prom, the guy lets me know that he now has a girlfriend--who happens to be one of my good friends, too. D'OH!
Because it's T-minus days here, there's no way for me to get a replacement date...so I eat a nice, big old slice of humble pie and call her up, asking if I can still take her boyfriend as my non-date date. She graciously agrees, but the whole night, I'm paranoid of doing or saying anything that could be construed as me flirting with him inappropriately. Ah, good times.
All in all, not the worst stories ever, but they weren't the best, either. LOL.
So, what about you--any interesting/bad prom date stories? Dish it up, yo!
