Default Need to ask my girlfriend to homecoming this year

I'm a senior and have done the basic asking stuff the past few years. I'm sure some of y'all got some good stories on this. What y'all got. Thanks Matthew-

young grasshopper, you need the "Five-point plan"


First of all TSO, you never let on how much you like a girl.... "Oh, Debbie. Hi."

Two, you always call the shots.... "Kiss me. You won't regret it."

Now three, act like wherever you are, that's the place to be. ...."Isn't this great?"

Four, when ordering food, you find out what she wants, then order for the both of you. It's a classy move. ...... "Now, the lady will have the linguini and white clam sauce, and a Coke with no ice."

And five, now this is the most important, TSO ...... " When it comes down to making out, whenever possible, put on side one of Led Zeppelin IV."

Whatever you do, don't ask a girl who expects a super expensive mum. If she wants anything other than a nice smallish one, move along.

Depends on how long you have been with this girl. If it is more than a year id say just ask what kind of mum she wants and go from there. No need to ask. If it is less than a year just say "Hey, since I am dating you that means you have to be my homecoming date." That should do the trick!

You- " Hey babe do you ever stop and think how lucky you are?"

Her- " What makes me lucky" (or something similar)

You- " To be able to go to homecoming with a guy like me!"

Just go up and ask her if she is buying ticket for homecoming. If she says no then you saved some money. If she says yes then you at least got out of paying for the tickets.
Good luck and hope she has some hot friends as a backup plan.

If you fiddle around someone else is going to beat you to the punch, girlfriend or not.

I would imagine the GF would not be to happy if someone else asked her before you did.

That would be a sign to her you really didn't care enough to ask her early.......

Heck my nephew is a sophomore and has already locked down the prettiest girl in his school for homecoming.....

Take this advise or leave it.... But unless you are wanting to go to homecoming, dance, hang out with your buddies and her, stay up late, and sleep in the next day.... Just ask her if she would rather go sit in a deer stand Saturday morning... If she said no, find you one that will. If yes, then take the money you would have spent on homecoming and take her to go pick out some hunting attire for her. Make it fun, and I Gurantee she will stick around.

hmmmmm... I am inclined to completely agree with the Ragin Cajun on this one. The 5 point plan has a 124.63% success rate, guaranteed.

HOWEVER, I would add that you follow some of Phil Robertson's advice as well

Don't just straight up and ask her, make it intriguing... Be the most interesting man alive.

For example if you meet a girl at the bar and she asks what you do for a living see the following scenario that I "may" have used successfully:

scenario 1
Girl - What do you do
Boy - write stock trading software
Girl - thinks to herself boring nerd

scenario 2
G - what do you do
B - do you know much about the stock market
G - not really
B - you know how the rich people make millions trading stocks online
G - yes/no/sort of (their answer doesn't matter)
B - well I write the software they use to make those millions
G - wow that sounds so exciting (you just mentioned millions of dollars and you have something to do with it)
B - How about we dance this song, I buy you and drink, and get to know each other a little better
G - I'm yours.... (paraphrasing of course)

To play the game you have to keep them interested and sound like the most interesting man around. It's not a 1x thing, it's something to keep up for a while. There is no 1 line that will work on a good self respecting sober girl, but keeping their attention and making it sound interesting will go a long way.

Since she's already your GF, use something similar for asking her to homecoming.
B - so I hear there is a really big game this Friday night
G - I guess so
B - Sounds like the stadium is going to be full and lots of people coming to town to watch it
G - really?
B - even the girls get dressed up and wear flowers or something on their clothes to show off to others (her response may help give you clues to what you need to buy)
G - go on...
B - how about you and I going to the homecoming together so I can show you off then maybe after, I can hold you tight and slow dance with you at the homecoming dance
G - fans herself and passes out with excitement

You can thank me later...

I'm not sure how your relationship with her parents is, but I dated a girl for the better part of high school and I had a very good relationship with her parents so I could push the envelope with these things a little

1) fill one of her drawers or something with tennis balls and write a note saying "I finally got the balls to ask you to homecoming..."

2) get a tonka truck and fill it with honey buns and leave a note "can I haul your buns to homecoming?"


There were a few others but I can't remember
