Nervous for my senior prom, what to do?

edited September 2010 in High School Life
So I'm a senior in hs and I've never been to a dance my entire high school career so I guess that makes me kinda a dork. Anyway, I didnt want to go at first by some of my friends persuaded me and I have a really cool date. I was wondering if someone could give me some advice as to what to do and stuff. I know she's wearing a black dress but she doesnt know what she's accessorizing with.
I have a few questions though.
Do the guys get ready together or separately?
A group of us (12) are renting a limo to go together in so am I supposed to pick up my date and take her to the meeting location or do we meet up separately?
Does the guy pay for his dates dinner even if going as friends?
And also, we are going to a Indian restaurant, can anyone tell me what the food is like?

    Oh god Indian food is disgusting. I went to a restaurant before and I puked. Augh...It was just gross. I am sorry but try not to eat there. Lick the food and spit it out in your napkin or something.

    Guaranteed poopy food.

    I'm really not sure if you want to smell like Indian food/curry for prom. Just a thought...

    Also, for accessorizing, ask your date. For meeting up info, ask your friends.

    "I'm really not sure if you want to smell like Indian food/curry for prom. Just a thought.."

    --Bring a toothbrush (like one of those small ones) and some toothpaste (a travel tube). It's kinda weird to have a toothbrush and toothpaste in your pocket, but you can leave it in the car later, and you'll be glad when you don't have curry breath.

    usually everyone just meets at where the limo is at so i dont htink you would have to pick her up unless you want to

    make sweet love
    before and after prom

    that will take lots of tensions out!

    I agree with kaikumarukuchan or whatever haha. juke/grind the hell out of your date, break out the absolut or grey goose in the after party, and the stage is set for a great nighttt haha

    but seriously, indian food is great/spicy but the smell will be all over your clothes. trust me im indian.
    you definetely pay
    and guys usually don't dress up together lol...you all meet at someone's house beforehand usually OR you meet up with your date and the limo goes around collecting all the dates.

    Hokay, listen to me. Haha.

    You get ready separately, but ask if she has a preference for color of tux or whatever.
    You DON'T HAVE TO PAY. You can split the tab. Chivalry is pretty much dead. OFFER to pay all, but if she wants to cover her half, LET HER.
    Usually you pick her up. Just ask her if she wants a ride to the limo location.

    Most of all, DON'T WORRY. Dances are no big deal. Just look cute, smell decent and be courteous and don't be one of those bums who won't dance because they don't think they're good. Your date probably won't care, ask her to dance anyway.

    Go ahead and eat Indian food if you both like it. I love it. It's spicy. If you smell like it, eh, who cares? You can laugh about it.

    Have fun, man!

    Thanks for all the advice guys but I dont think that I'm going to go any more. Basically, the group that I was going with said that there wasnt enough room for me and pretty much all of my other friends are full and since I never wanted to go anyway, I just wont go at all.

    smart,dont go. Its a waste of money and you'll be disappointed. Have fun that night instead :).
