At our school, we have this dance called winter formal in February. Its kinda cool because this time around, the girls are our hosts. They pay for dinnner, arrange transportation and also, they pick their dates. Now this sounds great, right?
So, just recently, Ive been asked on facebook by a cute Sophomore via message(which i have not replied to). Alas, I do not really know this girl well. We talk, but maybe like once or twice a week. And shes three (age) years younger than me...it just seems scandalous. Besides, theres another girl my grade who Im might (not certain) would ask, but with time. And i like her more. See, the thing is, these girls go nuts picking out their dates. One girl just brings it up, and then like wildfire, all the girls get scared and try to pick up a man before its too late. Its freaking 2+ months away! Im afraid that my senior girl will just wait a little more time but Ill be obligated to this sophomore already. =(
Im thinking that I have somewhat of a right to decline. Im a senior, shes a sophomore. This is my last year of HS fun. I can be picky if I want. She has three more years of winter formals, this will be my last. Girls turn down guys all the time, why cant I?
So ettiquettehell.com, heres where you come in:
-Should I decline and possibly break this little girl's heart or accept and beat myself up when this other girl might ask?
-How long should I wait to make either decision with the sophomore? She asked me in a facebook message, and I havent replied to it yet. I'm trying to open my window for the senior girl, but too long would just be akward for the sophomore.
