The Prom

Back in February V planned to go the the prom with her then boyfriend Chas.  After we bought her dress, Chas called it quits.  V then went through several boys until she found Dakota who seemed to want to go to the prom.  He is from a different school so there will be 2 proms.

 His school's prom was yesterday.
 V spent hours getting ready.  The weather was perfect.
 Another couple (cousin Laura), came to the house for dinner, then off to the prom.
 It took 2 1/2 hours at the saloon, a couple hundred bobby pins, and a can of hair cement.
 Isn't it beautiful.
She went all out and had her nails professionally done too.
All of this and he was too tired to dance and left the prom at 11:00 and didn't even go to the after prom activities like they had planned.   Needless to say, V was a bit angry.  They are suppose to go the V's prom this coming week but I'm not holding my breath.  I told her she may need a back up.  I think it would be nice if she would just go with a friend and have fun instead of  putting so much pressure on an iffy relationship.  Can anyone else give her advice?

Go without a date ... she'll have more fun with her friends. (What's with these guys?)

It doesn't matter what wonderful advice you give her because she's a teen and it's prom. Personally, I find the relationships with my goats more satisfying than the relationship with my ex-husband ever was. (Point being, you're a complete person capable of being happy without a romantic relationship.)

I can't give her any advise that she will hear for now . But here goes, Any boy who is too tired to be out and celebrating his prom with that beautiful girl,who put so much effort into looking lovely for his big day ,is not worth the energy . Teh boy I went to my Graduation with was (in my mind at the time ) the love of my life ...NOT not even close . Enjoy yourself , dance with all the boys and just have the moment , whether you go "with someone" or not , It will soon be a distant memory , and this life has soo much more to show you and to celebrate!

Both girls look beautiful.

No advice, I never went to Prom. Too bad there's no a girl's only prom, then there would be none of that guy pressure.
