Prom is off!!

Ugh, gotta love my daughter... She is a sophomore.. prom is for Juniors and their dates. She was asked to prom by an older boy, and she said yes... but now she may be changing her mind, and I feel kind of bad for the boy who asked her. My daughter is not interested in relationships, and she's always felt this way. She has crushes and has had a couple boyfriends but they don't last long. Recently she dated a boy for a few months and then broke up with him because she just didn't feel like having a boyfriend anymore.. it's too hard to constantly worry about how someone else feels about things, etc... So, that's fine, she's 15 and a smart girl. She has good friends and is happy with her life the way it is. The boy that asked her to prom is quite the opposite. He wants a serious relationship. My daughter told him she just wants to be friends, and he seemed okay with that.. But my daughter is getting annoyed because he is acting like they're dating, and he's treating her like they're dating, and she doesn't want to date. So now she's going to break his little heart and not go to prom with him... And I already bought the dress!! Ugh! But I am proud that I have such a smart, independent daughter who knows what she wants and doesn't find her self worth in the eyes of a boy! I must have done something right!

Good for your daughter. She probably feels uncomfortable with him telling all his friends that she is dating him, especially when she told him she doesnt want a relationship, only a friendship. I've dumped a number of guys for this reason also. :-)
