Going to the Dance Dateless

Jun 16, 2010 go to the dance datelessIt happens sometimes— you break up with your boyfriend or your date gets the flu.  For whatever reason, you’re stuck going to that big dance alone.  How do you handle it?  Whatever you do, don’t sit at home feeling sorry for yourself.  Go out and have a good time!

  • Get dressed exactly as you were going to before.  Get your hair done.  Make sure your focus remains on the most important thing:  You!
  • Try to get together with a group of friends that might also be going stag.  Ideally, if you can get in with a mixed group of guys and girls, you can take turns during slow dances.
  • What about the picture?  Okay, you have to get something taken!  Get together with a group of friends and do something silly.  You’ll want to remember how much fun you had!
  • Think about it this way:  You’re free to dance with whomever you want.  You don’t have to worry about hurting anyone’s feelings.  Make the most of that freedom!
  • If you absolutely can’t imagine going without a date, see if any of your friends have brothers or cousins that you would be comfortable going with.  Make sure it’s someone you trust.

Most of all, have fun!
