Who should I ask to Prom?(19 posts)

Who should I ask to Prom?liu02bhs
Apr 12, 2002 7:31 PM
Damn, I'm having dillemas on who to ask to prom. My first choice was like "I'm not gonna go to prom." What kind of stuff is that? So I'm kinda screwed right now. Prom is in less than a month.
*Do y'all think it's a good idea to ask some girl I don't even know that well?

or

*Ask some tall arse girl who I want to get to know better, but doesn't know if she has a date or not? I don't usually date girls taller than me.

or

*This other girl who some of have some issues? I really don't know if she wants to go with me. But she's looking kinda good right now.

Any advice or suggestions are welcome !!!!

Dude, call Colorado Cyclist and get the number of the woman on the cover of the most recent catalog. ;-)

actually, I was going to suggest calling CC but mickey-mac beat me to the punch.

my crystal ball suggests that with the tall arse girl you'll be pleasantly surprised and have a good time. she has a goodness that you might not be prepared to deal with yet. the sexy girl with issues will give you an uncomfortable time with her wandering eyes and difficult attitude. But....

ask them all what their plans are for the prom and see what responses you get,some women often get all worked up about the prom and make it a stress fest...also its better than patheticly asking for a yes no response...the one who sounds most enthused take....ive come to find its best to feel out the attitudes with women before laying it out there..

Two things...mr_spin
Apr 15, 2002 7:19 AM
Two things to consider:

1. Are you planning on spending all night with your date. In other words, are you on a date or out with friends? Are you going to dance most of dances with her? Is she going to be on your arm the whole time? If this won't be an "exclusive" date, I'd go with whoever you think would be the most fun. If it is "exclusive" I'd go with the one you want to be with the most.

2. Are you making prom a "first date?" If you want to ask someone out and get to know them well, prom may not be the best place to do it. The arrangements and costs introduce a lot of stress and expectations into the equation, and that's not good. (Unless you are a SWAT team member and your date is driving a bus that will explode if it drops below 50 mph).

Man, I can't get the guts to do it. I keep on procrastinating. Any advice how to suck it up. The truth is, I'm not too confident about either one of them. And for all the chicks out there, how do you show that you are attracted to a guy?

I'm not to worried about the next day's ride, because I'll probably more worried about getting some sleep so I can do well on the Macro-economics AP on Monday.
Fear of rejectionStarliner

With the dating game, it's SOP for men to expose ourselves to potential embarrassment, humiliation and feelings of failure and rejection. I always thought it was sort of demeaning to be put in the position of being one of the airplanes circling around the control tower asking for permission to land.

Your problem is you don't have enough time for social change to occur so that girls will ask you to the prom instead. So if you want to go, create a positive picture in you mind of the girl being happy that you asked her, spend some time looking at that picture until you think it has a possibility of happening, and then go do it.

Approach her with a controlled, steady attitude. Don't take a no answer personally; she might have some reason not to go with you that has nothing to do with you... if she's as kind as you would want her to be, things will turn out alright.

If you don't ask them, then you definatly won't have a date. If you do ask, at least the possibility exists.

What's the worst that can happen? They say no & you move on. I hae found in my experience, that the fear in your head is many times worse than the result in the real world.

Feel the fear & do it anyway.

Really, though, go with the one you'll have the most fun with. 20 yrs from now it really won't matter.
Procrastination is BADliu02bhs

All of them either have dates or boyfriend. Crap, my procrastination have finally caught up to me. Luckily, my friends says they gonna hook me up with a date. I don't like my options and it's all not for sure.

My prom sucked. I took a sophmore girlfriend I had at the time. That night, it seemed like every hot girl wanted to dance with me but I was stuck entertaining my date.

But anyway, If I could do it all over again...
I'd get a couple friends together (guys/girls whatever). Find a cheap way to get there and back. Don't waste money on a limo. Get to the prom and just party your arse off. It's your last school gig. Don't waste it being preoccupied with a date. After one semester in college you'll forget what your date's name was anyway.

Instead of asking us about date advice, you should be asking for ways to sneak booz in.

Nice adviceliu02bhs

My swim coach gave me the same advice. I guess it must be good then. I'll see if I can get some friends to go with me. Most of my friends are guys and the girls I do know all have dates, so I'm kind of in trouble. Deadline for prom registration in 10 days.

Yes, it's do-or-die time now. Next Thursdays (5-2-02) is the last day for registration. I know 2 girls w/o dates, one is annonying and one is nice, both are not the prettiest girl around. I'm getting my friend to ask the nice one for me, because I don't know her except by name. And my friend went to a dance with her before. So I'll see how it goes. Damn, I hope I don't have to ask the annony one.
