  • I agree with Mama Champ. When I went to my junior and senior prom it was me and the girls and we danced with whomever we wanted to without having to worry about a prom date getting jealous. Afterwards we went out to eat....IT WAS SO FUN! Your daughter is a diva and is very picky...lol...tell her to set them high..jk..but going in a group would be so much fun and less pressure.

  • Well I think that is great she still wants to go even without a date. Have you thought about maybe getting her a limo and telling her to invite some of her single friends that dont have dates? Could be something really special for them to do as friends.

  • Tell her she doesn't need a guy to go with. Go with friends! The more the merrier! Make the best of it.

  • Its true... boys are waaaay overrated... especially at that age! She can go stag and have just as much fun, if not more, than all the girls that went with their boyfriends.
