I do believe the myth about "prom night" gets a bad rap. It's a HUGE difference when you're talking about the difference between 9th and 12th grades! It's a HUGE difference when you're talking about the difference between 9th and 12th grades! What I find as a double standard, we had our annual homecoming dance and although it doesn't rank high on the must have a date list.
The maturity level is a catalyst; as 14 years old girls are being asked out by 17 year olds, which means the 17 year old girls must be on the so-so maturity list. The scary thought is that in a matter of months this kids will be 17 year old freshmen on a college campus and that is whole other dating quandry. I can't even image why a senior would WANT to go to the prom with a freshman. I can't even image why a senior would WANT to go to the prom with a freshman. But many of those same students interacted with each other at this chaperoned event.
We dated for 7 years..I think my maturity level outgrew his How mature are each of these young people? When the parents of 9th graders assembled (for some orientation) in the high school auditorium, the first words spoken from the stage were "parents, do not let your 9th grade daughters date junior or senior boys. I think it is too young, with maybe a modest exception if they've been dating for some time. My 10th grader (boy) has dated 11th and 12th graders and I find that a little odd.
There really is a difference just 2 years apart, and even more 3 years apart. That is very close when you're talking about a 17 year old boy taking a 15 year old freshman to prom.
Rather, I would ask my sisters, friends, or other moms that know my daughter and can assess her maturity level. I can't even image why a senior would WANT to go to the prom with a freshman.
Pete to the Canadian Pacific will have a chance to see the film and, in many cities, take part in one of dozens of Senior Speed Dating events now being organized.
This chick knows what she wants and she isn’t afraid to set boundaries. Currently making one million copies to hand out to all future boyfriends/have my husband sign on our wedding day.
If I were to write a relationship contract it would BE THIS EXACT THING, with a couple of additions (You have to talk to me all the time EXCEPT when I don’t feel like talking to you.) No hugging, talking, or looking at these hoes, but fist bumps are chill. I have never been so straightforward in a relationship and tbh, I’m for sure worse off for it.

But many of those same students interacted with each other at this chaperoned event. DD's HS had a group of senior girls that had burned through senior boys and juniors so they invited sophomores and in the prior year certain freshmen boys to formals and prom. More like extreme college behavior only in high school. OP, the age differences are averaging 14 and 17 year olds.
