Continuation of this thread.
Prom was last night, and it was a disaster. I don't dance, so I was reduced to awkwardly slow dancing. It's not that I'm too incredibly worried about disappointing my date. At least I didn't break her heart or anything. BUT my friend decided that, at the night of the Prom, it was time to tell me that my date was getting over some other guy, and, because I wasn't making a move, that she was getting upset. So I did, because that's the guy I am. I couldn't stand to hear about her crying in a corner, so I tried. Then... things went far too fast. On the ride back (it was like a 20-minute ride home) he was laying on me, and things began to get a little bit further than they should be for the first date. Not even as far as making out or anything, but far enough. Now, my friend's pushing us to go faster is also putting a wedge between me and her. I wouldn't mind being friends with her, I guess, but I don't really want to get into it with her. Maybe if we can become friends for a little while... but not NEAR now. I've known her for a week, about, and I need to find a way of getting my friend to stop, and keep my "date" "at arms length," if I can say that. Still, I don't feel the need to break any hearts, nor do I want to be her boyfriend.
