What is prom etiquette in this situation? We're going to someone's house beforehand, but once we get to prom, is it ok if we split up? I don't mean I'm going to abandon him entirely, but I'm not the dance-with-a-guy-I'm-not-dating kind of girl, and I already told him that. So in your opinion, would it be ok for me to just dance with my friends if I make an effort to talk to him throughout the night and make sure he's having fun too (ie, I don't intend to ditch him)?
Hmmmmm. I'm new at this type of thing. Help?
[EDIT:] I'll definitely sit next to him at dinner, talk to him, ask him about the first slow dance!! As I said above, I don't intend to ditch him. What I meant is that at my school, most of the dancing between guys and girls is gross grinding-type dancing, and I'm not really into that, especially with a guy I barely know. So I'm just wondering if it's ok for me to split up when the fast songs come and dance with my friends.
