High school senior faces tough promposal decision 😬

Prom season can be a stressful time for high schoolers, especially when unexpected promposals occur. A high school senior (18M) recently found himself in a tough spot when a disabled girl he knew asked him to prom in front of his AP chem class. Despite feeling embarrassed and wanting to say no, he felt pressured to say yes due to the public nature of the proposal. However, he later realized he couldn't go to prom with her as he had already planned to ask someone else. When he explained this to her, she was understandably upset and he now feels like a jerk. It's important to remember that promposals, while often fun and creative, should not be done in a way that puts pressure on someone to say yes. The senior in this situation did the right thing by being honest with the girl, but it's a reminder to all of us to be considerate when planning promposals. The next section will feature reactions and comments on this difficult situation.
