This is going to sound really stupid, but it's been driving me mad and I'd really like some advice.
I'm a junior at a really old, private, all-girls school. We have prom, but it's not like real prom because we usally don't have a lot of boys. This year they're inviting juniors and seniors from an all-boys military school in the area so the gender balnce will be a little more equal. Because it's usally not, we have a rule that students can't inivite girls from other schools to dances. I thought that since we were bringing in all these guys that maybe they'd make a slight execption, so I went to talk to our dean of students (who's a democrat, by the way). I explained to her how I've been dating this girl for quite a while now and how I'd really like to ask her to go to prom with me. Our dean, who I really like and is everybody's mom at school (though now I can barely look at her), just spits the rule back at me and that was that.
I'm really mad at myself for not trying to at least fight for it even though our administration is really converitive. My girlfriend's said she's totally willing to just pertend to be a guy and come anyway, but my school will kick you out for anything so I don't think that's a good idea. I've promised a friend that I'd go to the stupid thing (plus I already bought a dress), but I'm really fed up with the whole thing. It's times like these when I just wish I could be like everyone else.
Any adivce? Thanks. (Sorry that was so long.)
