Dear Alex: What are the best ways to ask someone to homecoming?

Dear Nervous and Yearning:

Homecoming is right around the corner and the pressure to find a date is getting greater and greater however it doesn’t have to be like that. Asking someone out for homecoming is a big deal and the ways to do it are possibly endless. Which is why I have come up with a list of ideas where one of them is bound to resonate with you and your lucky person. Keep in mind that each person is different, so when using any of these make sure to add your own personality to it and make it feel like you know them.

Remember that the best thing you can have apart from a good way to ask them out, is confidence. Also remember to take the chance while you can; you only have four homecomings your whole life. I can’t wait to see you on the dance floor with your special someone.

Without further ado, it’s time to get to the plans.

Make a Spotify Playlist with the title being something alongt the line of “Homecoming with (date)?”

This one is bound to make the receiver feel appreciated and they will be able to feel the effort put in. Not only that, something like this is memorable and will make them think. It’s creative and you can really win them over with the songs you choose depending on their likes and dislikes. Aside from this, it’s good for shy people to do it face-to-face. In the end no matter what happens you get a new playlist which I count as a win-win.

Leave a note on their car windshield

This one can be as creative as you can make it since your choices for whatever you want to put in that note are endless. You can make it the best possible note for the person you’re giving it to and be as bold without having to actually be there in person. If they don’t have a car, however, any other place where they can find it and see it would work. In the end when they return it with the words yes, it’s going to be a special note to remember for a long long time.

In person

This is the dreaded, one but it doesn’t have to be. If you’re comfortable enough with the person this one of the best ones you can do. The place and time can be changed to what you think is best for both of you. Don’t forget to make a fun conversation and have them engaged before getting into the topic of homecoming so you don’t have to just dive in head first. Have their personality in mind as well and don’t do it in a place crowded with people, for example, if they are generally very shy. This is a bold move to do and will leave an impression on the person and when they say yes it’ll be a moment to remember.

There are a few ways you could ask someone to homecoming and you can change these and adjust them to what you would feel most comfortable with. No matter what happens, be glad you took the chance so you don’t have to think about what would have happened if you had asked or not.

Also, remember to have fun with a date or without a date. There is no point being down about it and missing out on a fun homecoming with friends. I’ll be cheering you on in spirit and I hope you can get that special someone.
