I was at a few, nothing very enjoyable. Maybe because I wasn't asked by anyone I cared to be with. It's a very awkward time for those who aren't really dating anyone. Lots of pressure to make parents happy and not look like the kid is a reject. All of my invitations were to make the guy feel accepted. Twice I went with school paper's editor, whose mutual friend fixed us up, because he had to show to mine, jr and his sr. A couple of years before jrs from a nearby school needed dates to show and didn't have gfs, so my friend and I got "drafted." My hs stopped them 3 years after I graduated, because the kids thought it stupid and old-fashioned.

- What memories, pro or con, pleasant or nightmarish do you have?
