I made a fool of myself
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Male
So here's the deal. I've really, REALLY, liked this girl for about three years. This is my last year I'll (probably) see her again because I'm going to graduate. (Finally) After three years, I built up the guts to ask her to a dance and she said 'yes'. However, there are a few issues..
She's in our HS Band and she has a concert the day of the dance. She didn't realize it until a few days ago. Obviously, I've felt really down when I heard this. I finally build up the guts, she even says yes, and then she can't go. So, what should my next move be? I don't think I have the guts to ask her to something like our Senior Prom or something. We're friends, but (maybe it's just because I have low self-esteem or something?) I think if I asked her to something as big as Senior Prom, she'd say no... and I don't even feel like going to the dance if it's not with her.
First of all, make sure that her band committment really conflicts with the evening dance.
Maybe you could still go but get there a little late. Maybe you could pick her up from the end of the band concert and she could change at your house and have dinner with you or go out for a quick bite to eat.
If she really can't go, then you should ask her to the Senior Prom. After all, she said yes to the first dance. Try to spend time with her before the prom so that you get to know each other better and can have a good time at the dance.
Good luck! George
