Here's the situation, there is a girl I like in one of my high school classes (both seniors) and I want to ask her out to the prom which is in about a month.... thing is... all my friends tell me that the best way to ask a girl out is by asking her out when she is alone.. thing is is that she always seems to be talking with her friends and stuff.. so i can never get her alone.. the only time she is almost alone is right after the class I have with her when she is talking with another girl from my class.. friendly talk and what not.. should I just suck it up and ask her during this situation? i mean its the only one where she is talking with one other person.. basically i don't want no awkward situations..

i didnt think "proms" were real things, just through it just existed in american movies.

sorry but i cant really give out any advice, all my mates talk to girls via text messenging and instand messenging. it is really sad :( why cant i be a few year older.

be sneaky and find a mutual friend, and do recon and see if she has a date... i asked my date somewhere around march (back in the day)... then try to get her number...
if your school has an internal email system, that would make it so much easier.

Just walk up to her and be like, "Hey, can I talk to you for a minute?" and if she doesn't get the idea, follow up with, "In private?"

Then tell her that you didn't want to ask in front of her friends and put her on the spot (a.k.a. the "nice guy" card) and pop the question.

All my prom dates were easy. I had a girlfriend for each of them. :)

Good luck.

but.....

LET us know!

(how it goes)

so we can live vicariously though you...
uh *ahem- uh....


seriously though-
follow the advice above
it all sounds good
the smile thing is key

also- don't be hurt if she's already got a date...
that's nothing 'against' you
but just stinks

-----
in about a week or so- we'll be ready to tell you 'how to dance'
:p
since you'll be bound to have that question as well...

It's times like these that I'm so thankful that I'm married and won't ever had to deal with those kinds of woes again..

Don't stress out over it and don't put any pressure on yourself. Just ask her when you get a few seconds with her and accept what happens.

Good luck,

Asking her in front of her friends would put her on the spot – better just to ask if you can have a quiet word in private and then ask her.

Good luck!

I asked a German exchange student to the prom -- way back when. She agreed to go, but she couldn't believe it either, and eventually backed out, saying she thought the whole thing was ridiculous. Fortunately it was still a couple months before the event and I had time to find another date!

You should find out the exact date of the prom. Find out some particulars about the prom such as the theme, location, and any after parties.

Probably after class when you have the fifteen minute break. If she is talking to someone else, politely interrupt. Then just ask her if she would mind going off the somewhere that is quiet. That its important and don't want to be interrupted. Just be sure to be very polite. I wish you the best of luck.

So... what's wrong with calling her on the phone? Then you're at least assured of a private conversation.
No it's definitely better to ask the person face to face, being on the phone might show you care less about them then if you are face to face. Of course that is all according to how you ask, if you are arrogant or w/e and be like "YO GO TO THE PROM WITH ME" it is less likely to get the date (duh). There is always seems to be a 'false feeling' when on a phone call as well.
