    Tried the candles tonight, just ordinary tea-candles. Wind blew them out and it was still out with MAYBE 1 MPH gusts. BAD idea guys. But i got her flowers to go with and she still said yes :DD

    If he/she loves cookies then Prom Cookies will be the best idea. The message in a bottle seems to be the best of all.For ladies, knowing what she likes may also help in deciding on what method to use.

    its not funny and dont write that if you are trying to get attention its not working!:)

  11. Lizzie

    So, there’s this kid in my class that I like, but he’s super shy and I knew he’d never ask me himself, but he’s hinted at liking me. So, I took it in my own hands: (warning, this is only appropriate for real nerds(not the video game kind, like the chemistry kind)!) I got a bunch of chemical equations that solve out to equal “PROM WITH ME”. I wrote it out so it looked like it was an actual school assignment, with a hint that the answer he should get is “yes”. I then gave it to him in our free period and told him to find me when he figured it out. Ten painfully long minutes later, he comes out with a blank face. He asks for help on three equations- the spelled “Yes”!!!!!!!!!
    As I said earlier, it only works for nerds :P.
    Good luck!

    One of my daughter’s friends was asked out in a very creative way. She received at text message from a boy telling her to come out into the front yard. When she went out there were dozens of Hershey’s kisses all over the grass and a note that said “Now that I have kissed the ground that you walk on…Will you go to Prom with me.?

    Wow! You are so smart! There’s this guy in my class that’s a math nerd and you totally just made my day! Thanks! 😀

    What a great idea! There is a girl in my chem class and I was thinking about using the same thing. What was the equation you used? Thanks
