i'm trying to decide who to take to prom, and I know it's a couple months away but I have no idea what I'm going to do.
my decision is split between two guys.
guy #1: the guy I've been crushing on for a long time,but he has a long history of emotionally hurting me. he broke my heart by completely ignoring me when I told him I liked him, among other things, and I'm pretty certain he has a girlfriend and they were dating when I told him I liked him which he failed to mention. the completely bizarre thing is that he's expecting me to take him to prom...which I don't know why if he has a girlfriend...i know I'm being stupid but I still kinda want him to be there, he's fun to be around and makes me laugh and he's fun to talk to and we talk a lot and we're still good friends.
guy #2: guy number two I haven't known nearly as long as guy #1, he's incredibly nice to me and always makes me laugh and smile. I love this about him, and he makes me feel so good about myself. he's more mature and more intelligent than guy #1. I feel like guy #2 would be more of a gentleman, I love this about him. guy #1 can be but only when he wants to be. my only reserve with guy #2 is he's always so busy (because he goes to harvard) so we don't have a lot of time to talk. When we do talk we both have a great time, and we get each other. but at the same time, because we can't talk a lot I feel like I don't know that much about him...and he can tend to be a tad socially awkward, I mean I can be in some situations, but adding that to the fact we don't talk a lot I'm not sure what to expect if he comes...
im not sure who to choose, and maybe I feel like that since I was crushing on guy #1 for so long and because he's expecting me to take him to prom I almost feel like I can't pass up the chance. each time I talk to either one of them I change my opinion of who to invite. I don't know what to expect from guy #1 if I bring him, but I feel like guy #2 has that sort of chivalry/gentlemanliness that I would want at prom...i don't know how to choose between them

Guy #1 sounds like a classic player to me. He (probably) has a GF, but expects to go to prom with you? And you also said this about him: "has a long history of emotionally hurting me... " OK - couple of red flags there. 1) If a guy has a GF, he takes HER to prom. 2) If any guy really hurts you, then walk away, don't pursue. That said, if he is honestly a decent friend to you, then keep him in the friendzone, but nothing more.
Guy #2 sounds a lot better, but he's a busy Ivy-Leaguer. I think he'd make a classy escort to your prom, but give him more than a week or two notice that you're thinking of asking him if he's so busy.
Just my two cents... Good luck.0
