My oldest (6th grade) has his first school dance tonight, he's not sure if he wants to go yet. He was talking to his friends on the xbox last night and a lot of them are going and with DATES! Oh my gosh! He says he doesn't have a date and can't think of anyone to invite but he's not sure he wants to go alone and I told him at his age I usually went just to hang out with my friends. So we'll see. Kind of hit me though, he's growing up so fast and we're getting into those years... ugh. I don't think I'm ready.

I completely agree with you. I didn't start taking an actual DATE to a dance until I was either a sophomore or junior in high school. We didn't have dances in elementary (and my son's school doesn't either), but 7th, 8th, and 9th grades for sure it was just go either by myself and meet up with people there, or went with a group of friends and just hung out.

If he goes, I hope he has a great time, as I'm sure there will be plenty of others w/o dates, but if not, he'll round that corner when he's ready. As long as he's comfortable with his decision either way, that's what is important. Good luck!

Ugh...hang in there! I dread the idea of my daughter "dating". I will have to cross this same bridge one day too.

I'm sure he won't be the only one there without a "date" at his age. We started having dances in the 6th grade and up....nobody really cared about dates until high school. I hope he has fun.

He didn't go, turns out it started immediately after school and since he hadn't arranged a ride and hadn't paid to go ahead of time he couldn't stay. Which he seemed almost relieved about it lol. Later that night though he was talking to his friends again and I can hear everything they say (I don't think he knows that though, he has on headphones) and his best friend KISSED his date. OMG. I'm really kind of glad he didn't go lol.

Kids are growing up so much faster in this generation! My son is 9 years old, but still pretty innocent (thankfully!). However, my daughter, who is 6, is already talking like a teenager...wierd! I'm hoping she's just repeating stuff she hears from the older girls in the school bus.
