The big dance is coming up, and that special boy you've got your eye on still doesn't have a date. You want to ask him, but first, you've got to think of the perfect way to do it. You know he's going to say yes, but you want to impress him with your creative approach. Whatever you do, never leave your invitation to the dance in someone else's hands.
Many people ask friends to ask a date out for them, but this is usually really awkward for everyone involved. Even if your crush wants to go with you, he may feel embarrassed to discuss it with the third person. It's better if the message comes directly from you. The good news is, there are still plenty of creative ways you can ask him out. If you've got musical talent, write him a song. Ask him to meet you after school one day, and serenade him with your offer. Can't carry a tune? Opt for a poem instead. Make each line begin with a letter in his name, and work your proposal into the rhyme. Then sneak it into his locker or bag. He'll be sure to let you know his answer once he finds it. Does your crush have a sweet tooth? Make him his favorite kind of cake, and use icing to spell out your message on top. Or, if you're looking for a more elaborate plan, make a scavenger hunt. Place the first clue in his locker, and make all the clues lead up to you, where you'll be waiting with your poem, song, cake, or, what the heck, all of the above!
Whichever strategy you choose, remember not to stress out too much. If he says no, who needs him? You want someone who appreciates your sense of creativity and fun—anyone else would make for a pretty lame date. So make your plan and go for it, girl! Don't let another day slip by.
