Christi, I know you are not happy right now about going but think about how much it means to your friend and what a kindness you are doing. I think too that you may have a better time than you are anticipating. Just take it one step at a time. It actually sounds like a lot of fun. I went to my prom with a guy that a good friend had broken up with. She wanted me to go and I didn't have a date so she arranged for me to go with her old boyfriend. My Mom bought me a gorgeous dress and while it wasn't the night of my dreams it was fun. And when I think back on it I am so glad I was able to go to prom. It is one of those experiences you only have once and when you are older you will look back on the night and feel good that you were able to participate. Good luck and let us know how the evening went.
