Prom is one of the best events for high schoolers, and I kid you not, students take time to prepare for this event. This includes shopping for that perfect prom dress or suit and even finding the right shoes and accessories to pair with the outfits. Another thing every prom goer wishes for is to walk hand in hand with their crush. Wouldn’t it be awesome to have your first dance and have beautiful interactions with someone you had a crush on at school?
You are not guaranteed that your crush will make the first move to ask you to prom, and therefore, if it is something you wish for, it is only fair if you work hard to get your crush to ask you to prom. How?
Here are 5 lovely ways to get your crush to ask you to prom
1. Get to know them
How will your crush figure out that you like them if you are not close or don’t know each other? So, that boy you have been crushing on, and you wish he would be your prom date, establish a good connection earlier before the prom time. Start a good friendship with them and make it an effort to chat, call, and hang out once.
If the both of you are comfortable around each other and pretty much have a solid friendship, rest assured your crush will not have a hard time asking you to be their prom date. They enjoy and have fun being around you; thus, they will feel more comfortable being with you on that day.
2. Put your flirty mood on
You don’t necessarily need to be too sexual as you don’t want to turn your crush off. However, it would help if you showed them somehow your feelings towards them, and what a better way than throwing flirty signals here and there. You don’t need to mask your feelings towards your crush when you have one-on-one contact.
It is okay to touch them flirty, maybe around their shoulders and chest (for a man). Make sure to make eye contact when talking with them and smile often. You can send them flirty messages once in a while and as you do this, try to read their reactions to your moves. Are they excited by your flirtatious ways, and are they reciprocating? These are things to look at.
3. Talk about prom around them
You don’t need to make all your conversations about prom, but you ought to show them how crucial prom is to you; hence, once in a while, bring up that conversation. Let them know how you feel about the day, and you can tell them you don’t have a date for prom. If you are shopping for a prom dress, screenshot a few prom dresses and show them to your boy crush.
You can ask him to choose a dress they want to walk with you to prom wearing. This is a good signal to send to let him know you would like to go to the dance with him, and he can help you choose the dress that he likes for you. If he does not like the prom dresses, you show him, search for websites and ask him to help you choose a beautiful prom dress from their website.
4. Talk to your mutual friends
You must have that one common friend you share with your crush, and you are okay expressing your feelings towards your crush to them. So, if your crush is not grasping your feelings, you can share them with your mutual friend. The goal of discussing this with your friend is to know if your crush has plans to go to prom with someone else and if their feelings towards you are mutual.
If the feelings are mutual or the crush is flexible to go with you, you can ask your friend to ask them on your behalf. However, the friend should not directly express how you feel about your crush, but they should relay the message that suggests that you will not turn down your crush when they ask you for a prom date.
5. Talk to them
If the above four ways are not working, then you may as well shoot your shot and tell them directly. This is how you do it; tell your crush that you do not have anyone to accompany you to the prom and since lately, you have been close; you could not have fun without them around. Believe me, if the feeling is mutual, your crush will go ahead to ask you if you would want them to be your prom date.
Don’t be afraid to show your crush that you want them to go to prom with you. These are the five best ways to help you get your crush to ask you to go to prom with them. Ensure you are in a good and friendly relationship. Spend time with them to get to know each other and talk about prom.
