Where was your prom, who was your date, and where are they now?
My prom was in my high school gym in small-town Wisconsin. My mom made my dress. I went with my best friend, and I was the one who asked him. We had pizza for dinner at a local restaurant, and then we got ice cream for dessert from Culver’s (where we both worked at the time) I live in Minnesota now, and he lives in Colorado. Aside from an occasional Happy Birthday or Merry Christmas we haven’t spoken in a few years.
Local officers club (grew up in a Navy town). A “friend” who I had a long time crush on. No idea.
Don’t know where my prom date is, but I did take your wife to Sadie Hawkins in 7th grade; or I should say she took me.
Love you bro.
My prom was in my high school gym in small-town Ohio. I took a friend that I’d known since birth. After we both moved to different states for college & jobs, we both ended up in Nashville a few years ago. Sadly…we haven’t connected other than the occasional facebook message.
My prom was in my high school gym in Illinois. My date was a college boy that I was dating from my church. Where is he now? He’s at work, but will be home in time to take our son to see The Avengers tonight…we’ve been married for 17 1/2 years.
I was just about to write something very similar Heidi, so I thought I’d just reply to your post!
My prom was in a hotel ballroom near our high school. My date was a high school boy I was dating from our youth group. Where is my date right now? He’s out in the back yard mowing the grass! We’ve been together 20 years, married for 13!
My first prom was with a guy I was dating at the time. It was at a very beautiful ballroom near our high school. My date that year is now a park ranger.
My second prom was with a good friend in downtown Indianapolis. He recently moved away from the school so it was a neat way for him to come back and see everybody. He now works at Disney World as a ride operater.
My prom was in Thomasville, Georgia, a small town in south Georgia near the Florida line. My date was David Jackson and he still lives in Thomasville, while I now live in Augusta, GA. The funny thing is, your blog post link (with the prom question) came through my news feed on FB just three posts below a post that he put on his page with a photo. It’s such a small world … and I’m always amazed how many things that share commonalities touch in my world.
It was at some hotel in downtown Phoenix. My date was a girl I worked with at Togo’s, and knew I had asked someone else and got turned down. It was our first date. We’ve been married for almost 6 years now. Turned out to be the best plan B ever.
In our high school cafeteria (it was twice as large as the gym)… date was a girl from youth group who is now actually married to be best friend from high school. She was my date and we doubled with him and someone else.
I went to my prom with my ex boyfriend & his new girlfriend. Talk about awkward! We had made plans to go, then broke up, & he convinced me we could still be friends & go.
It was not a fun night for me.
He & the girlfriend are now married so i guess it went well for them!
Senior and Junior prom were in our local civic center in the city of my high school. My junior prom date is now married, living in Texas with her husband who is in the military and my senior prom date, who I am still very good friends with still lives locally, is very recently married, and sings with me on my worship team.
San Francisco on a boat touring the bay (bawler!) and my date was my GF at the time who I haven’t seen/heard from in 10 yrs. She was cool and all, but we broke up and I think we both did better
Prom (both Jr and Sr) were at Saddlebrook Golf and Country Club just outside Tampa. Date for both was a chick I dated for 5 years named Jodi. She’s divorced, living in Florida. I’m married to the girl of my dreams for 11 years now, who I was friends with at the time and if I had the stones to break up with Jodi sooner like I knew I should have, I’d have been with her at both those proms.
How come you don’t ever answer these questions, Los?
My “prom” (actually, it was a banquet because I went to a Christian school that didn’t encourage dancing…) was in a big ballroom on the Air Force Base in Charleston, SC. I went with my good friend Jason, and we are still friends today, 9 years later! He’s happily married and teaching at a high school.
My junior prom was at Convention Hall in my hometown. My date was a BLIND DATE SET UP FOR ME BY MY ALGEBRA TEACHER!!! The guy was his brother-in-law…geez, how pathetic! I was so embarrassed, I treated the guy like poo and I’ve never seen or heard from him again. My teacher wrote an apology in my senior yearbook. Hilarious!!!
I went to prom three years in Sheldon, Iowa w/ Amy Eitemiller. She now lives in Sioux Falls, SD in the same house as me! We’ve been married 20 years and somehow she still hasn’t figured out that she’s way, way out of my league (even though I tell her all the time).
My prom was at a hotel banquet hall in a town called owego new York that where my school (vestal) held the prom. I went with Sean my husband of 17 years.Funny to think back to that time and think God was working even then in my life.
My prom (called a Formal in the UK) date was my then girlfriend, I was her date the following year…. That was in 2005 and 2006, we have now been married just over 2 years and she is sitting beside me on the sofa
My prom was at a fancy as heck golf course/resorty thing in Wisconsin. My date was named Chris and it was our first date. We got married last summer. I’m now a high school teacher and this year’s prom coordinator.
I went to both my Jr./Sr. proms with the same guy. He was a friend who I knew I’d be able to have fun with. That was great choice too…no worries about did he like me or anything like that…just hung out and had a blast! Both proms were held in the ballroom in a hotel in downtown Mobile, AL.
Unfortunately, he was killed by a drunk driver a few years ago while riding his motorcycle.
answered on facebook, but came here to answer again!
prom was at the holiday inn, i had no date because my fiance was in the middle of combat at the time (kosovo, 99) and my “date” (or the guy that would have been my date) is, at this moment in my bedroom, probably racked out in the bed lol
White Hall High School, White Hall, AR – Bert Honey Gymnasium
She’s currently training folks in Chicago and I’m training folks in Richmond, but we’ll rendezvous back in Nashville on Friday. 5 years of dating (jr & sr proms) and 7 years of marriage later.
Prom was at a hotel in east-coast Canada, her name is Kyla, and she’s currently my best friend’s wife.
Both my Junior and Senior proms were at Country Clubs outside my hometown. Both my prom dates are now gay, and I’m still good friends with them both.
Skipped both of “my” proms, but the year after I graduated went to the Senior Prom with my cousin, whose date had ditched him for what she thought was a better offer that day. It was awkward. Still friends with my cousin, with whom I recently reconnected when I moved away from our hometown to the big city. He and his wife invited my husband and I to their church, which is now our church. And he and his wife recently moved away.
My prom was n our gym. And the girl I went with, who was my gf at the time, is now married with 2 kids and lives 2 states away. And I’m still single, now playing 4 the opposing team lol
Never went to prom, quit school half way through 11th grade.
My Prom was on Lake Union in Seattle on a boat. My date was the girl I was madly in like with from youth group. 21 years later and 2,500 miles away, she and her family are mine and my wife’s best friends. Cool story.
I never went to prom… I can’t remember why. I wasn’t really allowed to go to school dances and I had decided at the last minute to cram in an extra class to graduate a year early. I hadn’t ever dated anyone and no one was really interested in me, so I had no reason to go. I don’t really feel like I missed out, since that wasn’t my scene anyway.
My junior prom was held in the ball room of a local hotel in Greensboro, NC. The band was a “beach music” band called the Catalinas, and my date was Karen Hollifield, who went on to become an opera singer in Austria before marrying and raising a family in Texas. It was awesome! My senior prom was the same place, different band and my date was Emily Smith, who was just a friend.
Mine was in Las Vegas! I went to one school, my girlfriend at the time went to another. Her’s was the Academy for the Performing Arts. So of course, their prom was in Liberace’s house. I am not kidding. It was this huge mansion, and we took pictures in his bathroom, which had a chandelier over the tub. There were kids in drag, and an Elvis imitator. We both were actually sick, but made the most of the night.
My date was a girl named Tara. We met through YoungLife, and were both really into theater. She was a year younger than me, and some of my friends couldn’t believe I was going out with her. She was so gorgeous.
Now, she is married and living very happily in Vegas. We are facebook friends still, and regularly catch up and encourage each other.
My date for prom in 1988 was a girl who asked me to her prom after we met roller skating. We almost got kicked out of the school gym for kidding while dancing. She asked me to the prom but I asked her to be my wife. 22 years of marriage and we still kiss while slow dancing. Our kids try to kick us out of the living room. Somethings just don’t change
Kissing not kidding. No kidding
May 1, 1998. Marriott Downtown L.A. ; Lisset was my date, she’s now in Oklahoma City, OK sitting across the room from me. We just celebrated 10 years of marriage, our son Rex’s 2nd birthday and found out we’re having a little girl in October. God is good.
Prom. I didn’t go to Junior prom…. and unless someone asks me to prom in the next week or so, I’m not going to senior prom either.
I’m homeschooled, so it’s not a big deal. I’ve never dated and don’t plan on starting to go to an over-priced dance.
My (junior) prom was at the Wabasha Street Caves (http://www.wabashastreetcaves.com/) kind of a cool location! My date was my good friend Blaine because no one from my school wanted to go with me. Now Blaine is my husband. (I didn’t go to Sr prom)
Junior and senior proms were both in the Loew’s Vanderbilt Plaza in Nashville. Haven’t talked to either date much since high school. I think my junior prom date is a lesbian now. My senior prom date started dating my best friend before prom, so I ended up taking my best friend’s girlfriend to prom. Not sure which story is more awkward.
Went to 3 proms with the same date. My Junior & Senior year and her Senior Year. (1983, 84 & 85) Each one was at a local hotel ballroom. We married after college and have now been married 24 years.
You know both of my prom dates. In 10th grade I got to go to prom with John Gunter. It was at the Westin P’tree Plaza. He’s now a missionary in China.
Both Jr & Sr year I went with Woody Jones. One year it was at Colony Square, not sure about the other. He’s still living in the Atlanta area and as you know is married to Lori!
My prom date was a girl I met at a funeral. We dated for a few months and then went to two proms – one at her school and one at mine. Today….she’s at work and we’ll celebrate 20 yrs married this summer.
Bro, my prom was at The Mansion in Wichita Falls, TX. My prom date was my high school girlfriend (I went to prom 3 times with her because she was a year behind me in school) Germaine Parton. Last I heard, she and her husband were Southern Baptist missionaries to China but living in Tibet.
It was in our high school cafeteria, which was way nicer than it sounds. And I went solo. Cuz I’m baller. (At least, that’s what I like to think.)
*I’m A baller. And it was in Pineville, Louisiana.
My prom was held in our school cafeteria and my date was a friend of a friend from out of town who took the opportunity to hook up with my best friend. Not sure where he is now, but part of me really hopes he’s working fast food or something equally as bad.
Hilton Head SC. Kara – hippie Girlfriend of 3 years.
we walked in and she says, “ok dont be mad but i cheated on you with those 2 guys over there.”
thats when i learned to never trust hippies.
she’s probably at Bonoroo.
My date was a bottle of vodka and tequila that I drank while hiding in my trunk. Then I climbed into the prom location (a rental space called dupree’s) through a window because school administrators were standing at the doors with cops armed with breathalyzers. My “date” now- staying far away from me as I celebrate one year sober on may 31st.
Tulsa Oklahoma, Terri Thompson, she my wife of 33 years now.
Prom was terrible. I took a sophomore boy because he was nice. I went with the cool kids, though I was a huge nerd. My dress and fake tan made me look like a cross between a compressed Cinderella and an oompa loompa. I insisted on the biggest skirt ever, so my date had to help squish it into the limo. We had it at the worthington, a fancy hotel in ft worth. My date now goes to a private Christian school, hopes to be president someday, got all over the news for calling himself a “cracker” during student elections, and rides every summer for adults with disabilities. He’s still a nice guy, with a good heart. I don’t think I would change the fact I took a nice guy without the typical date pressures.
It was in our high school gym, in my rural Wisconsin home town. My junior year I went with a guy who was just a friend, who has since announced he is gay. But we had a helluva time, rented a limo, had a fancy dinner, the works. My senior year I went with my then-boyfriend, and geez, I have no idea what he’s up to! I had fun that year too.
The DoubleTree hotel by Intercontinental Airport, Houston, TX.
Jeff – he was a junior and a childhood friend; we ran around with the same circle of friends and it was a senior only prom, so it made sense for Jeff to be there.
He’s now the youth pastor at the church we grew up at.
The Civic Center in downtown Okc
Jr prom was with Christi Parkhust and I have not seen or heard from her 1n 15+ years….. However my Sr. prom was at the same location with Sara Einhorn who is now known as Sara Corbin because she is my wife!! We dated during school and then married about three years later! This month is 12 years!!!!
My senior prom I took a freshman friend who was a blast to hang out with, we danced and hung out. It was at the local civic center haha. He’s now married to a sweetheart girl, we see each other every now and then because we still live in the same town. Wow, that was 7 years ago! I am getting old!
Went stag with some buddies! Had a blast at after prom!
At a hotel in Carlisle, PA. I went with Tammi Shaffer who today is married to a lawyer and living in Pennsylvania raising their 2 kids.
Thomas Edison Inn Port Huron Michigan. Tab, a fellow student in choir. That night she become my girlfriend. 2 years later we were married. We’ve been married for 12 years now!
The local coutry club, the lovely girl that I would hope to make my wife one day…and that girl is now my wife Lucky me!
high school gymnasium. a kid I met in church youth group. we are married.
My sophomore year, I went with two different friends to two different proms. One I’ve more or less stayed in touch with–His younger sister has become one of my best friends. The other is still in Oklahoma, and attending the church we grew up in.
Junior year, I went with a guy I was dating from a different school. So we went to both of ours. He’s up North somewhere. We keep in touch via FB occasionally, and he came to my wedding.
My senior year, I took a friend from a different school. It was held in one of the rooms of our city’s Agriplex. I think he is still in Oklahoma, but I haven’t talked to him since he did the sound for my wedding 3.5 years ago.
Where: long beach aquarium
Where is he now: in the bedroom of our apartment in Germany
I boycotted my prom because it was segregated [unofficially of course].
Hmmm, only went to 9th grade “prom” with a group of friends. A mean boy said, “Are you wearing your Sunday school dress?” Oh, ouch. For the next three years, cried and agonized over not having a prom date. Wish I had known that at age 18 as a freshman in college, I would meet my future husband and the fact that I never went to high school prom would mean absolutely nothing to me!
I didn’t go to my jr. prom. My sr. prom though I went solo and it was located at the lovely Gaston Country Club in Gastonia, NC (Outside of Charlotte).
