    Default How to: ask a girl to homecoming


    *Ads Disappear After 100 Posts*
    Ive been typing this up for the hell of it...





    Will You Go To…

    I had been thinking for awhile on this, and once again came the Homecoming season – along with all of the pain of trying to find a creative way to ask the girl of your choice to the dance – and having her say yes. The following ways may work, or may not work, it really depends on who the girl is… and who you are. I’ll try to break it up into sections, one just for a normal date, then the other for dances.

    The two most important things I can stress are – first off find out if she has a boyfriend or a date already by asking her friends or classmates, it will solve a lot of problems and can help prevent a rejection. Secondly, talk to her beforehand; you can’t just randomly walk up (usually) and ask her out, expecting her to say yes to a stranger. Spend some time and get to know her first, even if its just a social date, a few lunch hours sitting together and talking or maybe walking her to the next class. That way you can get to have a better feel of her personality – and maybe get an insight on how to ask her to…

    Just a side note when I put ____ in, it means fill in the blank with whatever you want (such as homecoming, winter, prom, etc.) or just change homecoming to whatever the dance you would be using this for. Also, you can substitute the names “Diane” and “Nate” for whatever would apply to your situation.

    Be creative!!

    1. Alarming Surprise
      A friend of mine used this one. Get a small battery powered alarm clock (you can usually find these at Walmart or Target for under $5). On the back, tape a post-it note with something like the following:
    1. “I hope I’m not to late, but will you be my ____ date?”
    1. Take that, set the alarm and hide it somewhere. Maybe her backpack, somewhere in her room, or if your really good, tape it under her desk so it will go off in the middle of class – just don’t forget the batteries!
    1. Posters
      At a sporting event (high school football game, swim meet etc.) get your friends together, or if your really lucky, the cheerleaders, and have them go out on the field with huge posters that says “_DianeHomecoming?” then come out with a bouquet of flowers and give them to her.
    1. Over the loudspeaker
      Also at a sporting event, see if you can get a message into the press box to have it asked over the intercom. Usually it will be something like “There is a message here for Diane Smith, Nate Michaelson is wondering if you’ll go to ___ with him.”
    1. On the Radio
      Along the same lines as above, and actually a really cool one if you ask me is to call into a radio station and do the same as above. Radio show hosts are usually pretty good with this, but make sure she is listening!
    1. On the TV
      You may have a local run TV station, maybe by the community college. Put a note on there and when you are together watch it. Example for me would be NCTV run by North Central College.
    1. Waiter
      While out on a date (or if you got her friends to take her to a particular restaurant) have the waiter say “I have a message for Diane from Nate” and he brings out a cake which says “Homecoming?” on it. If you are following her, then come up and give her flowers.
    1. Soda Label
      Jones soda will be able to print you custom labels from
      http://www.myjones.com . If you can, put a picture of her on half, and you on the other half with the words “Homecoming?” underneath that. A little pricey, but well worth it.
    1. Find and Seek
      This next one takes a little time and effort. Make sure you talk to her mother beforehand and get her permission, or this could turn out a little awkward. First make sure you get her out of the house. Grab 6-8 post-it notes, small pieces of paper, or something of that nature and some tape. Write her one compliment per note, then a clue to the location of the next note. On the second to last note, write the location where you will be (ex. Basement). When she comes to you, have a final note that says “__Homecoming?__” and have flowers in your hand?
    1. Cookie Cake
      Heres a fun one. Either buy a cookie cake, or if you are a good cook, bake a cookie cake. On the cake, make sure there is a rose (either frosting or real) then just “__Homecoming?__”
    1. Poison
      Give her a can of pop or a bottle of water. Let her take a few sips, then give her a note that says “I’ll give you the antidote if you go to homecoming with me”
    1. Candle lights
      Find a time when she is away from home – at night. Then spell out in those mini candles “_Homecoming?_” on her driveway and have a few roses for her. Make sure its not windy or raining – that could be disastrous.
    1. Chalk
      This one is like the previous one, but for during the day – just write in huge chalk letters on her driveway to go with you to the dance. If your creative, maybe draw a few flowers too.
    1. Christmas lights
      Like the above, spell out the dance name in Christmas lights. This will take a bit more time, but if she doesn’t come home on time, they won’t blow out!
    1. PowerPoint
      If she’s in your class and you’ve got a project you have to do. Add a slide at the end of the presentation asking her. Be creative, add music and animation if you can. The nerdier you are, the better – really! One way is to have a picture of the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz and a line saying “Will you help me find my heart at Homecoming?”
    1. Sweep me off my feet
      Get a broom, blank card and some shoes (hopefully they smell somewhat good). In the card, write – “You’d sweep me off my feet if you go to Homecoming with me.”
    1. Petals on the bed
      On her bed, spell out “_Homecoming?_” in rose petals, along with a card with a poem on it and your name.
    1. Yes/No
      On a piece of paper, write out “Will you go to Homecoming with me?” then put
      YES/no (yes the no Is supped to be really, really small)
    1. I can’t see!
      If she’s got a car this one is pretty dang easy. Put a poster flipped upside down on her windshield. On the back side write “do not remove” On the front side (facing in) write “Will you go to Homecoming with me? Nate”
    1. Painted windows
      On your car, write the girls name and telling her to get in (ex. Diane, get in the car!). On the seat, have roses and a note asking her if she’ll go with you.
    1. Petals to the bed
      The following is really only if you know the girl really well. Invite her to come over to your home. Assuming you have a two story house, sprinkle some flower petals on the stairs (or hallway) leading to your room (or living room). Every other step or few feet write a note which is something romantic or nice about her. At the destination (bed, chair etc) have a bunch of flowers and a card asking her to the dance. Candles would help too if you’ve got them – line them up along the hallway.
    1. Shirt
      Get a white t-shirt and a few colors of sharpie markers. On the front of the shirt write “Diane, I may not know your number” and on the back write “But you’re my #1 (the #1 is huge in the center of the shirt) for Homecoming”
    1. Sports bra
      Buy a cheap sports bra (or get one off a friend who doesn’t fit into it anymore) with a sharpie, write “homecoming with Nate?” and then put it in her athletic locker (if she has one) or into her dresser. When you see her next, give her flowers.
    1. Animal Friend
      Girls love stuffed animals. Go to a toy store, or Walmart and find a really cute, soft stuffed animal (bears and dogs usually go over well). Take a rose bud and use string and tie it around the animal’s neck. Attach a small gift card which would ask her to the dance.
    1. Collage o’ fun
      If you have been going out for awhile and have pictures then this should be fairly easy and fun. Make copies (yes copies, you don’t want the originals destroyed) of 10-12 of the best, funniest photos you have together (or of her), then cut them out. On a colorful poster, paste the photos surrounding the words “Homecoming?” If would also be a good idea to cut out paper hearts and question marks and paste them on the poster board too. Color is essential – the more the merrier.
    1. Eggs
      These next two are primarily for prom as it takes place in the spring. Get a dozen eggs (either hard boiled, or regular, doesn’t matter) and a crayon. Write either “Homecoming? or Prom with me?” Next get some Easter egg dye and color the eggs – no don’t be a guy here and turn them brown, be colorful with lots of blues, oranges, reds, and yellows. Next write a note saying “Look for these # of eggs. Nate” Put the note on her bed, then hide the eggs around her room. Note: don’t make the eggs too hard to find, or she may be left hanging!
    1. Easter basket
      Get an Easter basket and fill it with the fake colored grass. Get some candies and those plastic eggs. Fill the eggs with candy, but leave one. Put a poem or a note in it asking her to the dance.
    1. Pack of gum
      Get a pack of gum (dentine, orbit, something where the gum is packaged with the plastic and aluminum where you have to pop it out – not the rectangular ones). Put a note inside it with a poem about candy or something sweet. Wrap it in some flowery wrapping paper and put a big bow on it. Big bows always go over well.
    1. Story time
      If you are so inclined and creative, you could write a small 1-2 page story in which a character with the same names as yourselves end up going to the dance. At the end finish with “So now that you know how the night can go, will you go with me?”
    1. Banner on a plane
      If you happen to be friends with a small plane owner, then this may work, otherwise it will be quite expensive. Somehow create a 30’ banner that says “Diane Prom?” on it and have them fly over a sporting even that you are sure they will be attending.
    1. Roses are Red
      Here’s one that is pretty easy to do, and if you know the girl, she’ll be amazed by the flowers, so it will be hard to turn you down. Buy a dozen roses (or her favorite flower, if you can find out without be suspicious) and attach a card onto it with a short and sweet romantic poem (google it for some ideas), then just drop the question after the poem.
    1. Ask
      Just plain out ask her. If your close it could be something like “We are going to Homecoming right?” Or just a simple “Hey would you go to Homecoming with me” Doesn’t take a lot of effort, and it’s free, so if she says no, there’s about 3 billion other girls to choose from.
    1. Mirror
      Get one of those padded envelopes from the post office. Write on the outside “The most beautiful girl ever.” Put a mirror in the envelope with permanent marker asking her to the dance.
    1. Got no balls
      Fill her car with tennis balls during the night (yes get permission from her parents first). Put a poster in her seat that says “I’m sorry I didn’t have enough balls to ask you in person, but will you go to prom with me?”
    1. Candy
      Another simple one. Find out her favorite candy and get a few of them (like five chocolate bars). Make up a note then wrap the entire thing and put a bow on it. Give it to her and she will hopefully accept.
    1. Ticket
      This one is a bit more creative and could scare the crap out of her at first. Find out what your local parking ticket looks like (or even better yet, go to the police station, asking for a blank one you could use). Write your note on it then put it under the drivers windshield wiper.
    1. YouTube
      This one requires a computer, digital camcorder and some acting skill. Do something funny or stupid while asking her on the video. Then upload it to
      www.youtube.com and email it to her. Ask her to leave you a comment on the video if she accepts or not.
    1. Notes
      Get a bunch of post-it notes and have them sent to each of her class periods. You can either be creative and write something nice about her on each one, ending with the question, or you could spell everything out, letter by letter.
    1. Song
      If you are so musically inclined (unlike me), you can write a song and either record it on the computer with a few other friends and make a remix(really cool), or play it in front of her by singing it solo or accompanied by a guitar.
    1. Rose box
      Address a small box to her, with one rose in it, and leave it at the front door. While she is getting the box, come in the back door (have her parent open the door for you – which means you need to plan ahead of time and inform them of your task at hand). When she comes back into the kitchen, you should be standing there with a bouquet of roses to give to her.
    1. Locker goodies
      Fill her locker with a bunch of goodies (candies, stuffed animals, confetti, etc) and on the inside of the door, write a note asking her to the dance.
    1. Jersey
      Either you or one of her friends needs access to her room. Place your football/basketball/baseball<wbr>/hockey/etc. jersey (hopefully with your name on the back of it) on her bed and sprinkle it with rose petals. Leave a note, saying if she accepts for her to wear the jersey to school the next day.
    1. Pennies
      Place one or two hundred pennies up her stairway leading to her room. In the room, put a poster that says “wouldn’t it make cents for you to go to homecoming with me?”
    1. Fortune cookie
      You can make a custom fortune cookie from
      https://www.customfortunecookie<wbr>s.com/old/order/ for about $10 shipped (dozen). Inside you get 90 characters to express your thoughts and feelings – well more importantly asking her to the dance.
    1. Skit
      If your acting skills are halfway decent, then this may be the thing for you. Get a few friends and plan out a simple skit to ask her to the dance. Finish with you getting on your knee in front of her with flowers and asking her directly. Be creative and have fun. Note: it is not a smart idea to do this on a rooftop. It might be amusing and daring, but if you were to fall (or slip and go through a window) it would be a very costly mistake – plus you could get injured which would prevent you from dancing which would suck.
    1. Jewelry
      If you are very close to the girl, you can always get her a pretty necklace, bracelet or earring studs. They can range from anywhere around $10 to well over a hundred.
    1. Fortune teller
      Get one of your friends to “read” the palm of the girl with the prediction being that she will go to the dance with you. She will probably give you a creepy look, but then give her some flowers and smile and all will be well.
    1. Mug shot
      Take a few mug shots of yourself then create a paper that says something like “Nate Smithe: Under arrest for trying too hard to ask a girl to homecoming. To be released with you accepting him as your date.
    1. Dance boxGet a gift box and make a cutout of a girl and a guy dancing and attach it inside using one of those springy paper things. Wrap it and give it to her with a smile on your face.
    1. Chocolates
      Get a box of Russle Stover chocolates and write a poem on it with something along the lines of “if your as sweet as this chocolate, you’ll go to homecoming with me.
    1. Flash
      If your good with computers, create an animated Macromedia Flash animation which will have a guy asking a girl to the dance and her saying yes. Email it to her and ask if she might want to be like the girl in the animation.
    1. Tennis balls
      Get a bunch of tennis balls and write the word “homecoming?” on it and put it in a bag and give it to her. Tell her to solve the puzzle and if she does, she gets a rose.

    Wow, that was a LOT of effort on your part. Unfortunately, and this is just my opinion, I pretty much did everything you said not to. I didn't ask if she had a boyfriend, didn't spend any time with her prior to asking, didn't know if she had a date or not, and basically it was coming from a stranger.

    Of course, I did have a lot of things in my favor. But she ended up saying yes, and I just used the classic "will you go to homecoming with me?"

    However, I disagree with you on some of these approaches. Putting her on the spot at a sporting event or in front of more than 5 people would end up making her uncomfortable. And she'd be pressured into saying yes and if she didn't you'd get rejected in front of x amount of people. That's just my two cents.

    Coming off of the hardest football game of my life (lost 21-20 with 2.8 seconds left, I got so pissed I cried for the first time in 8 years), I gave her the ole "I've had a pretty shitty night and it might pickme up if you would go to homecoming with me..."

    "aww of course!"

    My philosophy is don't overdo it, your going to baby her and get a clinger or someone who thinks you are an obsessive freak, thus resulting in a decline of your offer.
    15 Reasons to go out with a Paintballer: 1. We arent afraid to get down and dirty. 2. We know how to listen to directions. 3. We have at least a 10 inch barrel. 4.

    Hey! Nice Finally, Love & Dating might actually get its first sticky. I'll vouch for it

    But I'd suggest the title be changed from homecoming, because it can be applied to a lot of things.

    Thing is, guys, it depends on the girl. Some girls like overdoing.

    well its a pretty good idea to make something like this but a lot of them are VERY much like Romantic movie cliches if you get what i mean, like some of the first ones, like the cheerleader one but some of them could actually work.

    Okay, the sports bra one? SERIOUSLY. I would have to say I'd probably slap him for that one! I mean, in order for him to know the combination to my athletic locker he would have to stalk me, and for him to go into the girls locker room would make him a pervert.

    Yeah, why not just plain old ask? I think maybe flowers or something would be okay, but I'd be fine with someone just plain old asking me.

    why do half of those require you to be creepy and either get into her house and put stuff there or do shit that would prolly embarrass her to death in public.

    like am i getting something wrong here? like alot of those are really time consuming and expensive just to ASK someone, and it's not like this person is going to go out with you or anything it's just a highschool thing no ones going to care in a week.

    this is the only one that even came close to making sence.
    Ask
    Just plain out ask her. If your close it could be something like “We are going to Homecoming right?” Or just a simple “Hey would you go to Homecoming with me” Doesn’t take a lot of effort, and it’s free, so if she says no, there’s about 3 billion other girls to choose from.

    what you should do is write on a t-shirt, here what to do.

    1.) get any t-shirt you can get one at target or walmart cheap.
    2.) get a peramnent marker and a washable marker(both must be the same color)
    3.) write Homecoming on the shirt with the perminate marker
    4.) with the washable marker wright random letters all over the shirt.
    5.) give the shirt to her the next time you see her and tell her to wash it, the washable letters should come off revealing the word homecoming?
    6.) come up behind her with a rose the next day and wait for her reply

    You are trying way too hard and girls hate that. Talk to her before or after class.

    You: hey

    Her: Hello

    You: How are you finding the class? I find it really hard.

    Her: Yeah, I spent 3 hrs doing hwk last night.

    You: Homecoming is really soon.

    Her: I know I'm so excited!

    You: Do you have a date?

    Her: No

    You: Would you like to go with me?

    Her: That sounds great!
    No regrets.
    I'm blessed to say the old me dead and gone away.

    yeah so if ur gonna ask a girl to homecoming, do us girls a favor and dont ask in class. it pressues us into saying yes. but...heres an example
    i walked into science and found a note on my desk with terrible handwriting(turnoff) that said will u go to hc with me? and roses next to it. (backstory:i HATE the guy. he's so freaking desperate for a girlfriend its not even funny. if u like someone, do NOT stalk her) i was a bit panicked and pressured by all the other students standing around so i blurted out that i had already made plans to go with friends.and he started crying in class. so much the teacher kicked him out. my friends foumd it hysterical. everyone else thought i was mean. lesson here? ASK AFTEr CLASS. turns out i dod end up with a date. he disnt even ask, he just asked me to dance and i spent the rest if the night at homecoming with him.
    So, its not hard at all. ask it bluntly and staightforward, dont go beating around the bush. -.-
    rejection just meansthat they cant see ur sexyness.
    and dont ever pressure her. ever.
