The first boy turned her down. I really do think it was a valid reason - last football game of the season and its accompanying family tailgate party and he's on the JV football team, but who knows. Anyway, she handled it well and wasn't all down in the dumps about it, which I was thankful for. The second boy is going to call her back tomorrow after he speaks to his coach to make sure he's free. I told her to keep a stiff upper lip again, though, since I know from his mother (one of my best friends) that he "hates to dance", also he's VERY shy. So we'll see. Usually the boys she likes are the really busy types with lots of sports and tough academics, so I think the "I'm busy" potential is high and the unfortunate thing is it leaves the girl always wondering if they just made an excuse. Such is life.
This is the only kind of 1:1 dating that my daughter is allowed to do AND they will have to go with a group of other kids, but I feel like there isn't much they can do wrong when we, the parents, have to drop them off and pick them up, plus the functions are monitored like hawks by the teachers at the school.
Anyway, DD has successfully played matchmaker with about three of her girlfriends in introducing them to boys and getting it so THEY have partners for these functions. Now I just hope she doesn't end up too disappointed herself!
