Reader Mail: What Can I Expect at Prom?

Tuesday April 29, 2014

I recently received this e-mail from a reader:

My prom is coming up really in about a month. I'm only a sophomore that was invited to go by a junior. None of my friends have ever gone to prom and I don't know what to expect. This guy and I are only friends and he happens to have a crush on a different girl who already had a date. What should I expect from him if we are only friends? Should we still buy each other flowers? Do they actually play slow songs at prom or is it a giant grinding pit? Please help me!!!
