The thought of asking a guy to prom is making you nervous because you don’t know how to go about it. Don’t be afraid though, you won’t regret it! As long as you follow these tips, you will do just fine, especially after reading this article.
Tips on How to Ask a Guy to Prom
How to ask a boy to prom depends on what kind of relationship you have with him. You either have known him for a long time, or you just met him and would like to get to know him better by going to prom with him.
Ways to Ask a Guy Friend to Prom
You should follow these tips if you have been friends with him for a long time and you have a good relationship with him.
Make Yourself an Option
There are many girls who get anxious when they have to ask a guy to prom because they believe that this means that they are confessing their true feelings for him to him. Despite the fact that this is not always the case, if you are friends with the guy and you do not want to continue your friendship, asking him shouldn’t put too much pressure on you.
If he does not know who he will be going with, ask him who he would like to go with. I would recommend telling him that you are in the same situation as him, even if he does not have a date or is not interested in going with anyone.
You have the option of either following this up with an invitation, or you can wait for him to take the bait and invite you to come with him, or you can just follow up with an invitation to go with you.
However, one thing to keep in mind is that if he doesn’t invite you, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to go with you. He may have just not understood what you were trying to say.
Only As Friends
Start a conversation about prom and mention how you would like to go with a friend. If he doesn’t follow this up with an invitation, simply ask him if he would be willing to go with you “just as friends.” That way, if he says no, you can make a joke about being rejected and how you’ll never let him live it down.
This prevents any confusion about whether or not you like him more than a friend and cuts out potential awkwardness.
Make a Pact
If you and your friend would like to go with someone but aren’t sure if it’s going to work out, you can make a pact with your guy friend that if you both don’t have a date by a certain date before prom, you two will go together. This is truly what friends are for, and it will take the pressure off of seeming as though you are looking for more out of the friendship.
The only thing that you should be careful about with this is that he may find someone to go with and you may not. Prepare yourself for this situation so you won’t be too heartbroken when your backup isn’t available.
Asking a Guy You Like to Prom
Asking a guy you like to prom is difficult. You’re afraid that he will reject you and that he will know you like him. While this may be frightening, you’ll never know if he feels the same way about you if you don’t take a chance. Consider using one of these tips to ask a guy to prom.
Set Up the Question
Don’t go up to him and come out of nowhere when asking him to prom. Start a conversation about prom with him to gauge his interest in going to the event. This way, if he says no, you’ll know it’s not because he didn’t want to go to prom at all.
After you find out he wants to go to prom, ask him if he already has someone to go with. If he says no, then tell him that you also don’t have anyone to go with but you want to go with someone. At this point, you can either wait to see if he asks you, or you can say something like, “How about we go together?” or “It would be really fun to go with you.”
Just as you have to be careful not to expect too much from your hint when asking a friend, don’t become discouraged if he doesn’t ask you after you drop the hint. Some guys just don’t understand where you are going with mentioning that you don’t have anyone to go with yet. He most likely thinks you are just talking.
Have a Friend Ask
This is probably the easiest way to ask a guy to prom, but it may not end up working out to your advantage. Some guys won’t say yes to a friend because they don’t want to let anyone else know that they possibly like the girl.
As an alternative, you can have your friend find out if he already has a date. If he doesn’t, then you can use the tip above to ask him.
If you really want to have a friend ask for you, make sure he or she asks him when there isn’t anyone else around. Some guys will become embarrassed and say no if asked in front of their friends.
Write a Letter
Compose a letter about how you want to go to prom with him. Simply state that you know he doesn’t have a date yet and that you don’t either, so you wonder if he would like to go with you.
Stay Calm and Confident
You are a fun person or you wouldn’t want to go to prom to have a good time! Anyone would be lucky to go with you. Take that confidence and use it when you ask the guy to prom. Remaining calm will show him that you know no matter what, you will still have an awesome night.
