LOL. I agree. I remember when my ex-best friend was graduating (a year before me) she knew she wasn't going to have a date, so she asked me..... O_I Like, what?!
Why does everyone make having a date such a big deal? Most people only had dates at my prom if they were dating that person. Some people were worried about it at first until they remembered that they weren't in a tv show. :P
It's funny, because she was desperate. That desperate.
I kind of had no choice for my date. IT would have been rude/awkward not to bring him, but out relationship was rocky and coming to an end. As it did, less than a week after my grad....
But no yeah. People read far too much into it.
