Apparently it's become a "thing" to make a big deal out of asking someone to prom, and also to video the occasion and post it online. And it's not just the kids who are asking celebrities and military heroes, or kids asking a good friend who may or may not say yes & a locker full of flowers might sway them; it's also guys making a big deal out of asking their girlfriend. Am I alone in thinking, if you're in enough of a relationship to be calling one another boyfriend & girlfriend, shouldn't prom kind of be an automatic assumption you have a date that night? And what happens if she (or he) says no? Do you set up all your props again & give it another try with someone else? Is this just something fun, or is it a sinister symptom of how the younger generation has gotten complacent with putting their entire lives online, and oversharing what used to be considered private moments, like gender reveal parties?
