Would You Ask A Guy To The Prom?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Perhaps you are a young woman and a high school senior. You are excited about your upcoming graduation, receiving your diploma, and having your family with you to celebrate your big day. Before graduation, however, you have something else to look forward to: your prom. You imagine a night of great music, like "Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper, "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion, and "Take My Breath Away" by Berlin.

You imagine a warm, clear starry night, a delicious dinner at a cozy restaurant, and then the prom, where you and your date will have a great night. You have your eye on the perfect gown for the evening--a taffeta Satin Sweetheart ball gown. Its color complements your skin. There is just one problem. You do not have a date yet. What should you do?

One way to handle this situation is to pray that a guy will ask you to this important dance. You will also likely be praying that the two of you will have an enjoyable evening, even if the chemistry between you is not exactly perfect. As the big night draws closer, however, you will get nervous if no guy has asked you to the dance yet. If you run into this situation, you have another option: you can ask a guy to the dance. Men, like women, are not mind readers. A guy will not know that you want to go to the dance with him unless you say something.

There are several ways to ask a guy to the prom. One way, of course, is by taking the direct approach. Walk up to him and ask, "Would you like to go to the prom with me?" The worst thing that can happen is that he will say no. The best, of course, is that he will say yes. If you are uncomfortable with being so direct, you can take another approach: you can call him. By calling him, the prom conversation will be between the two of you. His friends, and yours, will know nothing about it. By calling him, the two of you will also have the advantage of having more time to talk, rather than having to run off to class.

There is nothing wrong with a woman making the first move, and if you ask him, you will not have to worry about spending the special night at home while your friends are out having the night of their lives. If you have had a crush on a guy ever since you first saw him but have never had the nerve to talk to him, take a chance.

Wait for a good time to talk to him when he is not likely to be distracted, like during lunch or after school. If he does not yet have a date for the prom, he soon will. Talk with him, and see if he has a date. If he does not yet have someone to go to the dance with, ask him if he would like to go with you. If he says yes, you can then go home with a big smile on your face and prepare for your special night.

From a guy's perspective, we're just as terrified. This is such an important event and I agree, there is nothing wrong with a woman making the first move in asking a guy out.
