Think about it! It's a great reason to splurge on a gorgeous gown (if you don't have any friends/cousins in the near future), get your hair/nails done, look STUNNING! feel good and at the same time, check out all the "available" guys lookin their best without feeling like your gawking, or staring. Almost like a wedding but without a Mechitza.
So except for the ballroom dancing together, it all works out very nicely. Who needs a wedding in order to check out the 'stock' and look good when you get to be a debutante?
