She graciously shared with us the following advice based on her own experiences. Don't torture your date- aren't you supposed to like this person? Chivalry is never a bad idea and I don't think there's any type of etiquette that wouldn't fly at prom. The first time I went to prom (this year will be my third prom), right as we walked in my friend saw her ex making out with his new girlfriend at one of the tables and she spent the evening crying in the bathroom. Ask them what color their dress is or suit is, and then go with simple (white goes with everything) and don't buy the wrist ones because they fall off.
Look at your love-struck friends whose grades and performance are suffering because they can't go to their third period class without touching base with lover boy at his locker. People often say, I dumped him, even if it was the other way around.
For many guys, prom is the very first time you'll be on a formal date. A date to any school dance is a little more involved than a casual date that consists of pizza, a movie or a bowling alley.
There's a bit more effort that goes into prom date planning, and you'll have to plan at least a few weeks in advance.
But don't worry, all the planning is definitely worth it.
Prom is often one of the most memorable nights of high school!
