Couple of Questions:

1) Best to ask someone i like, or a good friend? Other?
2) When is too early and too late to ask?
3) Good ways to ask? Simple or elaborate?
4) Any other tips on how to have a fun night?

I'd prefer replies from people who are seniors or have gone to prom before, but whatev. I went to homecoming with a girl I didnt even know, and it sucked. I want my prom to be memorable.

Stories from your prom, or other other dance dilemmas, are cool as well.

Don't go. Find something more productive to do with your time and money. I didn't go and I have never regretted it.

do u really think a week is enough time? I think people at my school will be asking more than a month in advance. I dont want to seem desperate for a date, but I dont want the girl I like to get taken. Its so crazy.

If you're set on going with one girl, a month in advance is good.

Once is gets within a month's time of going, it's perfectly fine to ask someone (who's single) to it, if you don't have a girlfriend already.

Yeah, I'd probably go with a month as a rule of thumb (or maybe a rule of wrist). It is early enough to where it provides ample time for planning and getting the girl before someone else, and is also no so early that you just sound dumb.

Ug, you serious? We're doing the same thing. STUCO reps just aren't very original, are they?
#12
oh yeah. I'm stumped on what to do afterwards. I dont drink and Im not planning on having sex, so what is fun for a big group late at night?

Not until May (but I'm already worrying about asking and what-not!). I think our theme might be James Bond, as well to play up the 2007 thing. When is your prom?
#14
My school just had our Winter Formal so we probably won't be getting into "prom mode" for a while...
#15
Ask as early as possible so that you can get your plans down. Go with a friend if possible. When you ask, be straight forward. As far as having fun goes, just do whatever is clever, use your head and treat your date like a queen.
#16
Mines in May as well. Dont know why Im so worried, I guess I've got big expectations. I dont really know who I would ask currently. The girl I like right now is kind of stupid, and wouldnt necessarily be a fun date. I wouldn't mind going with a friend . . . i guess . . . i just really want to hookup with my date.

I'd rather spend my night playing guitar only cuz' i'm too much of a loser to get a date but yeah I wouldn't go.

As for the advice best to ask like a month to 3 weeks before, people can get dates fast and it's best to get to the girl you like before someone else does.

As for fun you can figure it out... a few drinks and a hotel room.
Or get a limo and hang out with your friends and their dates. Just ideas i'm throwing around.

As for asking just ask what else is their....

Edit: I've nenver nor do I plan to go to a prom so this isn't from experiance.

1) Best to ask someone i like, or a good friend? Other? ask someone you like, you prolly dont wanna ask a random chick though, if you dont like anyone then ask someone cool.
2) When is too early and too late to ask? hmm you dont have to worry so much about the early, just make sure you give her enough time to get a dress, i think they like a month or so.
3) Good ways to ask? Simple or elaborate? uhhhhh, depends on the person and the situation. just be original, asking is not all that big of a deal, your not asking them to date you.
4) Any other tips on how to have a fun night? dont worry about what people think, be yourself and have fun.

I'm assuming you're going to have a limo with a driver, right?

You could all go out to eat somewhere, that's a pretty common thing to do. If you don't want to do that, you could ask the group you're going with (in advance) what they would like to do. You can also have a drink or two, you don't need to get plastered.

-Didn't go to my Junior Prom, had fun hanging out with friends instead.
-Went to my Senior Prom, hated it, left early. Then had fun hanging out with friends.

The moral of this story: prom sucks, don't go, have fun with friends you like without paying to go.
Thus sayeth the Lord.

I don't know if this has already happened or not, but can we get a woman's side on this?

Another view of this little dilemma should help quite a bit.

EDIT: And does anyone else keep reading the word "pron" everytime someone mentions prom in this thread? I think it's The Pit Effect taking place.

Im not sure about Kentucky, but the place near me are cool about getting what you need. The local tux places even sponsor a prom fashion show where people show off various color's etc. You probably should see what your date is wearing tho, cuz u might want to match . . . or clash.

I dunno. I say that if you are dead set on going, then get yourself a Purple Zoot suit. I had a black pin-stripe one for my senior prom, and most people seemed to like it.

nice. I wore a pinstripe to homecoming. its so funny that everyone is doing james bond themes, how could you pass it up tho? 007 just makes sense. Our's is gonna be cool, I've heard gambling tables and everything. oh . . . and girls help is definitely appreciated.

kid thorazine, r u actually being serious? Thats crazy if you are. Also, another option. My friend told me one of her friends from another school - I've only met her once - would love to go to prom with me. She's not bad - pretty hot. Is that a good choice, or no cuz I dont really know her?

If you don't have anyone you know to go with, I suggest getting to know her first. Keep that girl you originally planned to go with in mind, but get to know this other girl. If she seems like a cool person, and you might want to date her for a while, then sure, go for it.

Also if you can't get that original girl to go with you, the other one will surely be better than going with no one.

EDIT: Sorry if I'm wrong, I thought you had a girl in mind already.

Here's what i'd do...ask someone you know you'd have fun with...and ask her enough in advance so it doesn't seem like a rush...they have a lot to get done, but don't ask her so far in advance where she could get friggin annoying and u regretted it or vice versa.

It is overhyped though. Way overhyped. I agree that he should go, I mean it is his prom and prom only happens once.. But the excitement and commotion that goes along with it is blown way out of proportion. afroboy, obviously go but if you don't end up going with the girl that you hope to be there with, then just go with your group of friends. Because believe me, you'll have a lot more fun with them than with a girl you may not neccesarily like..
