Long gone are the days of simply asking someone to Prom in the hallway before class.
Lots of students are asking their date to Prom in a cute way. Whether it is stuffing their locker with ping pong balls, chalking their car or giving them flowers, “promposing” is a big deal. You have to admit it is adorable to watch, whether you are a fan of promposals or not.
“I already knew we were going together. She just made me ask in a cute way,” junior Justin Holtz said about his date, senior Kaitlyn Stark.
Creativity is a major element in the art of promposing. Junior Blake Lee asked his date, senior Mycha Owens, to Prom through a fortune cookie.
“It was exciting when she said yes, because I wasn’t sure how it was going to work and then when it worked well it was just really exciting,” Lee said.
Other Prom grooms weren’t as fortunate. Sometimes promposals just don’t go the way they hoped or planned they would. Junior Joaquin Corona was told no when he promposed to his classmate.
“I will never do anything like that ever again,” Corona said.
Corona is now taking Skyline alum Janessa Davis to Prom.
“I was very surprised,” senior Brooke Fisher said about how senior Brandon Abbott asked her to Prom. “I thought it was a really huge and adorable gesture. I had no choice but to say yes.”
You win some and you lose some, but no matter who you go with, Prom is always a night to remember. There are 28 days left until one of the biggest nights of the year. Are you ready?
