My beautiful bright daughter who is a senior has never been asked to a Prom or even on a date for that matter. I feel so bad for her and don't quite understand it. Whenever any of our friends or other people meet her they comment to my husband that we must be beating the boys off with sticks but to be honest she has never had a boyfriend. To make matters worse, her best friend just got asked to the prom today! I don't know what to say to her to make her feel better without sounding like just a "mom" She will be going away in the fall to a great university and we keep telling her how much she has to look forward to and how different things are from high school. She really wants to experience the "whole package" go through sorority rush, get involved etc.. but I know it ways on her insecurities while she is still in high school about her dismal social life. Being a senior, she is done with classes by noon so really has no opportunities to get social. She is a bit on the shy side but when engaged can be very personable. Any advice on how to handle this without sounding so cliche?
