How to Ask Someone to Prom: Fill in the Blanks


Still hanging loose with prom approaching? There are two ways to ask someone to prom: the casual ask—for your friend, acquaintance, someone you like but don’t like like, or someone you really like but are afraid will reject you—and the romantic ask—for your SO or the SO of your dreams, to whom you are ready to bare your soul and feel your feelings. Both asks have been known to bring on night terrors, cold sweats, arrhythmia, loss of memory, diarrhea, anaphylaxis, hallucination, hyperpigmentation, poliosis, chicken pox, and in severe instances, temporary blindness. Spare yourself the drama and the anxiety by using our handy dandy fill-in-the-blank prom asks. The prom invitation has never been so easy.
