Asking Someone to the Prom

Traditional etiquette rules required a young lady to wait for a young gentlemen to ask her to attend the high school prom with him.

Although this etiquette expert believes there is a sense of appropriateness and romance with this rule, times have changed.  Today, young ladies frequently ask a young man to the prom.

It is also no longer necessary to have a date to attend the prom.  Many high schools encourage attending the prom with a group of friends or as a single.

It is important to remember the purpose of a prom – to celebrate friendship and accomplishment as a chapter of life closes and another is about to begin.  There is only one senior prom.  Enjoy it with or without a date.
