Homecoming dilemma PIOG ETA UPDATE (green)

Posted by   + Show Post

Here's the issue: Homecoming for our school is set for Oct. 19th. Soccer tournament schedule is out & there is a game scheduled for that NIGHT at 7pm. The athletic department is trying to see if it can get changed to an earlier time- like 3pm. IF they can then DS & his GF will miss dinner with their group of friends. If they can not then DS misses the entire thing. And I think his GF will probably stay at home.

DS doesn't want GF to miss out on a special night. Especially since her parents already bought her dress. So he's looking for ideas. He was thinking of taking her out the weekend before or after. But my thing is there would be no reason for her to wear the dress other than to say she wore it. IDK what he is going to do. They were going to go to The Olive Garden for dinner with several friends then go to the dance.

DS wanted to know if anyone on here had suggestions for him?

ETA I guess I should have asked for creative ideas for him to treat her & make up for it if he has to miss the dance. He hates knowing her parents spent money on a dress for Homecoming. She is not one to go to dances to begin with (she's shy) & this was a huge step for her. It's her senior year as well. DS & GF have been best friends since they were 4yo. 

Update: Found out 3 days ago that the tournament game is against another school having their homecoming the same night! Chances that the time would get changed were even better for us. AND... just got the email confirming it HAS been changed to a Noon game time! Praise Him! Now we can move forward!! Have to order a corsage for him now so we have that "secure". Taking him shopping Sunday (possibly with ex's GF since she has a better fashion sense & also works retail so maybe she can hook us up with a discount?).

I'd just throw a separate party. How about a holiday one? That way you will hoepfully be well out of soccer season and have lots of time to make plans.

Now, won't it be a pisser if no scouts show up to this soccer tournament?

Couldn't she just go with a friend? Then the two of them could go out at a later date. But you said she was shy. Good Luck!!

sorry i would say skip the tournament.  Unless soccer was for the school, it wasnt the soccer association and homecoming to "talk" to each other to see if they were on the same night, but I think someone should have noticed this a long time ago, so a dress wouldnt have been bought.  Schedules for all associations (soccer and homecoming) are usually posted right after school starts.
