so prom's coming up for most high school students.. what's the channel ai folk's take on this? lets be creative! Giggle

lol my idea was: "hey can you check my car trunk real fast?" and boom: balloons flowers and a sign that says 'will you go to prom with me.' but too many people said it was retarded.

and of course theres no way im starting this topic to fish for ways to ask a girl to prom because im a helpless dolt with no ideas. T_T my intentions are purely for discussion ^_^

What I did was just go up to the person I wanted to ask and just say, "Hey (insert name), do you want to go to the prom with me?" It wasn't a special kind of method or anything. If you want the person you want, be sure that he/she is someone that won't be blind sided by your request. We were friends for a long time and she was the kind of girl that didn't want to be taken advantage of, so we went and had a good time.

Your idea would work, and I think it would make a really good memory for both you and him\her.

If you want something really funny or strange from me, I would catch her at lunch or something and sit next to her. With an mp3 player and one side of a pair of headphones in my ear I would talk for a little bit and maybe just see how her day was. Then when there is a reasonable break in the conversation I would say, "Hmm... That's strange." The girl would ask why and you say, "I swear I don't remember putting this song in here. Could you listen and tell me if my hearing is going crazy. It's supposed to be (insert song name here)." Some time before this you should prepare a special message that you record into your mp3 player and let her listen when she has the headphones on. Then when she listens to the message she can tell you yes or no.

The message itself has to be something nice too, not something like, "Hey baby, wanna get wit me to the prom?" I don't like saying baby unless I'm talking about babies, and saying it too impolitely shows that you don't really care if she says yes or no. If you want a sincere answer you should ask a sincere question. Let her know that you respect her and that you would really like to try it out.

I'd say something along the lines of, "Hey (insert name), we've known each other for a while and have lots of fun when we are together. If we went to the prom we could have a good time. Would you like to be my prom date?"

Then while she is slightly surprised, you give her a flower and say, "I'm sure it would be a good night for both of us to remember."

Hopefully she will say yes because that would really suck if it didn't work.

Hmmm, I really don't know, I have not been in those socials which involve opposite sex schools. I have no ideas but strangeasianguy has some good ones. But wait, wouldn't it just work by just saying something nice and asking them out? Confused

Just so you guys know this thread is extremely popular on Google, just check the view counts for this topic if you don't believe me! So yeah, please contribute your views on this topic just so those people who stumble upon this thread via Google can get some good idea! Boogie Since we have quite a lot of female members here, why don't you girls contribute some ideas on how you would like to be asked to prom? Embarassed

Personally, I have no experience in asking a girl to prom. I went to my high school prom with my ex-girlfriend but that's about it. Since she's my girlfriend so yeah, I don't really need to ask lol, make any sense? Tongue

I would like it if a guy had come up to me and say his true feelings! =P Like...a cute example is...

(this is if you don't know the person well...just met or seen from afar):

"hi...ummm...I don't usually do this and I'm rather shy...but I just wanted to say...I think you're really pretty and you seem really nice...so if you're not going with anyone else, would you go to the prom with me?" (this isn't too forward, but it's sweet -n- simple!)

(this is if you're asking someone you know):

"Hey, (insert their name)...I'm asking you because I think you're really great and I wouldn't want to go with anyone else but you....so if you aren't going with anyone to the prom.....maybe you'll consider me?" (this is rather romantic -n- sweet yet not too forward!)

hopefully, that'll help you boys. Wink Just remember...don't say "I think you're hott" or somein' dumb like that...a self-respecting well-mannered girl wouldn't want to go with a guy who wants to be with her based only on her looks. Use words like "pretty" or "cute" if you say somein' about their looks...never "hot" or "sexy"!

We don't have proms in our country but I think the secret is actually to be confident about it. She'd be looking for someone she'd have fun with. However one must refrain from being obnoxious or too disrespectful. A girl wouldn't be anxious to go to a prom with a guy simply because he wants her to be a nice accessory.

How very subtle...
I think you might have left her in shock that way ><

Hm...I've never been to our school dances, but some cute ways I've seen people ask:
1. I once heard of a guy who spelled "PROM?" on a girl's driveway in tealights (you know those cheap little round candles in the silver tins?) and then....I guess he just had someone (or he called her himself) tell her to look outside. I guess that only works if she's got a two story house.....otherwise she wouldn't be able to read it Laughing

2. If there's still snow....one of my friends asked her date to one of the girls-ask-guys dances by building a snowman in front of his house with a sign. I thought that was cute Love If there's no snow though, I suppose you could make some other cute sign or something to put outside...

3. If you know all her classes, you could drop off a flower and a note in each room (before she gets there of course)... By the time she gets to her last class, she'd have a small bouquet and would be able to piece together the message and know who it was from Smile

4. Someone I know got a letter from her boyfriend asking her to go to prom....he wrote it in really proper, poetic language ("my dearest lady ______" and all that) and told her about how much he adored her and loved being with her. Then he colored letters throughout the message to spell "Will you go to prom with me?" I thought that was simply adorable Love This is my favorite of the four ideas...but I suppose it only works if you really know the person. I guess if they're just one of your friends, you could let them know just how much you appreciate them. It shows that you've put thought into it and that you value them....

But all in all, I agree with the AiAmBEST! =P and Rinoa...I think the most important thing is to let the girl know that you appreciate her and her friendship... she doesn't need to hear that she's "hot", especially from someone she doesn't know well. I know I've had guys approach me in this way and it's a real turn-off, because it shows that they don't really care enough to get to know me beforehand. I hope that made sense Laughing

There was one guy last year who went to the Guidance office and took out the big megaphone thing used to make announcements in the halls. He went on the cafeteria stage and then he sang "Close to you". His dialogue was like so:

"Why do birds suddenly appear, every time you are near. Just like me, they long to be close to you. Amanda(the name of the girl) will you go to the prom with me?"

Omg, he SO brave and SO sweet. any girl would have gone to the prom with that guy. His method just makes girls melted. I didn't hear this but when my friend told me, I melted. Embarassed

lol this thread really has gotten popular huh? i wished i had all these nice ideas before i actually asked Displeased i think the things previously mentioned (ie - politeness, respectability, etc) sums it up pretty well. A touch of boldness like in the megaphone example wouldn't hurt either Giggle

I went with the ipod idea. Me and a group of my friends who also knew the girl i was going to ask, Kelly, crowded outside her 5th period class. We engaged her in some light conversation and i start to pass around the ipod. Everyone listens and goes "oh wow this is a really nice song, Kelly have you heard this one before?" So she listens, and its an intro of a song cross fading into a recorded message i made asking her. Embarrassing thing was, it was kind of loud outside, so im guess she only picked up parts of message. She goes, "um are you asking me to prom?" I nod shyly, and she ends up saying yes Giggle. We have a good laugh afterwards about how spontaneous I was. Mission Accomplished 8]

Now i'll contribute an idea. My friend got a Dean to help him call in the girl he wanted to ask into the office. The dean made it seem like a really big deal and goes, "someone inside would like to have a chat with you." Then he pops out with flowers and asks her loll. worked out really well for him.

And... heres to spending over 300 dollars on prom yay! T_T

I'm glad you didn't use the car trunk idea cause I would have a feeling she wouldn't like it much, she might think your trying to abduct her.

How about...

"Yo. Doing anything Saturday? Great. You're now taking me to prom."

I didn't go to my HS Prom. So I wouldn't follow my advice if I were you. Smile

cnix, the idea you mentioned about asking the dean is really cool! think it's funny and sweet at the same time!=) well, i don't really know about this because i'm in an all-girls school, so it's pretty much not a problem: there's no asking of anyone out! haha! but uhm, i think the most important thing is to not scare the girl away or embarrass her! being sweet or straight-to-the-point is the easiest way, i guess!

Prom is a big deal to some and a small deal to others. Depending on the severity of your crush would determine the time and effort put into asking someone to prom.

If you like someone enough, winning their heart won't come for most people by simply asking if a girl wants to go with you. More so when multiple people are asking the same girl.

Girls like things that are fun and spontaneous that will set you aside as someone worth going with. If you simply ask she may or may not say yes but if the next day someone else asks in a cute way the girl will want to go with the person who put more time into it. It makes the girl feel special. If you want to impress someone with a way to ask, ask with qualities that make you or her stand out.

ei: if you can't sing for the life of you, don't be cute and sing a song because she will be dissinterested. If you are an amazing artist, possibly drawing something to interest her.

Make yourself stand out and try to one-up any competition you might have.
Don't just ask because it won't make them feel anything special and the likelyness of the relationship pursuing further is slim.

Smile BE YOURSELF Wink Nod
