Asking Him to the Prom
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
well the thing is me and my boyfriend have been dating for over 5 months yet i still have a problem asking him things i guess you can say i get kinda shy still. he and i know where going to prom together but i want to ask him to my prom. (we both go to diffrent high schools) how can i ask him and what is the best way if someone can please help me i would love that. thank you for your time.
I guess first you know that I'm going to say you really have to learn to talk to each other :) It's REALLY really important in a relationship and if you don't practice now on the relatively little things it's just going to be harder when you really *do* have to talk about something more serious.
So anyway look at this as practice in being able to talk to your boyfriend :) You know he wouldn't say no and make you go with another guy! If it makes it easier on you, make it into a more courtly situation instead of just a normal one so it's sort of fun. So say something like, "Dearest boyfriend, would you do me the honor of escorting me to my prom?" and that then gives him the opening to play along :)
