This is the time of year where teenagers are anxiously awaiting prom night. Other than graduation, it is the most anticipated event of the spring for high school teens. Here are a few tips to help you make a good impression on your date and the parents.
Check your appearance. Make sure your clothes are pressed and clean. Check your personal hygiene. Be sure to check your breath. You don’t want to knock your date over with bad breath! Instead, knock him/her over with looking the best that you can. Watch the perfume and cologne. Don’t go overboard with the good smelling fragrances. Comb the hair, tuck in the shirt tail, and polish the shoes . Now put on a great smile and have fun.
Meet the parents. Whether you are nervous or not, you want to make a good impression on your date and the parents. When meeting the parents shake their hands and look them in the eye while introducing yourself. When leaving, tell them it was nice to meet them. Young men remember to hold the door for your date while leaving the house and while getting into the car. Your date will be impressed with your manners.
Eating at the restaurant. You want to remember that you are trying to make a good impression. Remember to chew with your mouth closed, don’t talk with food in your mouth, no burping, don’t put your face in your plate and shovel your food in like it’s your last meal, put your napkin in your lap, don’t use a toothpick, and young men please hold the chair for your date. This is your time to shine with your date and friends.
Remember to thank your chaperons for giving of their time to make prom night possible. It takes a lot of community effort to host prom. People appreciate it when their efforts are recognized.
