|THAT WOULD BE THE ONLY SAUSAGE HE WOULD GET|
Some girls have even said that such elaborate promposals are "good practice" for a guy before for marriage proposals.
Really? How romantic that my husband-to-be would paint our marriage request on the side of the water tower: "Yo Andee, lets gitter dun!"
Although that might be appropriate since the trailer we'd be living in would look out at it.
|HOW SPECIAL...AT LEAST IT'S NOT THE SHORT BUS|
Give me a break.
You know what makes you special? Your diploma. Because the fact your "Momma" says you're special does you a huge disservice in life. You are not special, you are just like a thousand other little divas who will be in for a massive surprise in the work world.
I believe these outrageous promposal events - and most of them truly are outrageous - create unrealistic expectations. If a young lady is not going to go to prom with you unless you drop the petals from a 1,000 white roses from a helicopter over her backyard while Van Halen belts out a ballad written specifically for the occasion, then you need to recognize she is HIGH MAINTENANCE.
|ROLL UP THE RIM FOR THE WEDDING PROPOSAL|
Interesting stats from a survey of over 12,000 American students conducted by Seventeen magazine:
$175, average cost of a prom dress
$450, cost of renting a limo for four hours
53% of students have 4+ alcoholic drinks
14% of teenage girls have sex on prom night
5% of girls lose their virginity on prom night ...
Another survey by the Center for Disease Control found that the number was closer to 27% for teenage girls losing their virginity on prom night.
I guess, all in all, these young boys are dropping a hell of a lot of cash on what could be skewed to suggest they have, at best, one-in-four odds of getting laid. How the times have changed since my prom days.
Oh, and in case you think I'm being bitter or something like that. I have prom-cred - I was Prom Queen in my senior year - and I asked him to go with me, no bridge banners or stadium jumbotrons involved.
