Ideas For Asking a Guy To a Dance

Here are some great ideas from previous years on how to ask a guy to a dance. Each school has it's own name: Sadies, Tolo, Sweethearts, Morp, etc., but usually the girl is supposed to ask and pay for everything. Over the years, the ways to ask have gotten more and more elaborate. Post your own ideas below, but be sure that they are not too expensive, complicated, messy, or dangerous.


Fun Ways To Ask

Here are a couple of ways to ask to a dance that are fun.

  • "It would be 'cool' if you would 'dew' me the favor of going to _______ dance with me" and get a Styrofoam cooler and fill it with ice and Mountain Dew with the letters of your name on the bottom of the cans.
  • "Don't be a dumb-dumb, be a Smartee and go to ______ dance with me". That one's self explanatory.
  • "I'm spreading good news, I'm asking you to ______ dance!" Then get newspaper and spread it around his room and you can write your name on one of them or make it really hard and circle letters in your name on different sheets of news paper.
  • For a Halloween dance you could say "Out of all the pumpkins in the patch will you go with me to Monster Mash" and then cut a little slit in the top of the pumpkin and write the letters of you name on pennies and put them through the slit and leave it on the porch.
  • Ad

  • If the guy you are asking is a sports freak you could do something like this (baseball example) "Mitt $25, balls $50, bat $150, ticket with your friend _____ to ______ dance. PRICELESS" and then get a little kids mitt, some plastic balls and a plastic bat. And the prices aren't real for the items, but the whole thing is a joke so make the prices realistic. And then make some fake tickets and leave them on the porch in a bucket or something.

A friend did this once. First buy a bucket like one you'd make a sandcastle with, then buy a little treasure box. Inside of the box. write "Sadies?" and put it at the bottom of the bucket. Fill with jelly beans or another candy, and put a note on the outside that says "dig for a treasure", and you can have a little spoon or shovel for them to find it with.

All right, a few ideas:

  • Put fortune cookies in the microwave a few seconds. Take them out, take out the old fortunes, then put in new ones with "Tolo/Sadies/go with me?" Heat them back up, then close them up
  • Make a puzzle that he'll have to put together
  • Scavenger Hunt: cute poems: so much fun. It's fun to do it with a friend and their date too, especially if they're friends
  • Put a boulder and a small pebble on his doorstep. Leave a sign "if yes, return the pebble. If no, the boulder."

I just asked a guy to Morp today and it was pretty funny. First of all, I got a stick of butter and taped a piece of paper with his name on it to the stick of butter. I had his first period teacher give it to him. Next I got a poster board and wrote "Now that I've got you all "buttered-up" I thought I'd "POP" the question and ask you to Morp!"


For where the word POP goes, you get a thing of microwave popcorn, carefully take the popcorn bag out of the plastic bag and write your name on a fold so that he'll have to pop the popcorn bag to find out who is asking him to the dance. You put the popcorn bag back into the plastic bag and carefully tape it closed, tape it to the poster board and get a piece of paper and write "POP" on it. It's really cute. I've had my date laughing all day.

OK, so I asked my boyfriend this way and it was so adorable. I went up to him one day and punched him and he said, "What was that for?" and I said, "Will you go to Morp with me, if you don't I'll punch you again."

He said yes. After 7 years together we are finally engaged. He proposed last night in an equally cute way. It really works. Trust me.

Slip Him A Note

Hey, you can always try slipping a note in his locker and maybe putting your locker number on it so he can discretely drop a reply in your locker. If you've got any classes with him, you might try discretely slipping him a note or catching him after class. If you know what his last class of the day is (even if it's not yours), you might "just happen" to be around when he gets out.

If he's with friends, ask him if you can talk to him for a second and walk away slightly (with him in tow, of course) and ask him. Most guys like it when you're straightforward. Ask him first if he's thinking about going to the dance. Then ask him if he's asked anybody. If not, then ask him if he'd like to go with you. If he says he's already going with someone, ask him if he has any friends, or knows anyone, who doesn't have a date. That might save some face in the situation. Good luck.

Keep It Simple

I think sometimes it's just best to stay simple. Just ask him.

Eternally Unforgettable

I am a rather shy and quiet girl, so asking a guy to Sadies was a stretch for me, but ended up being the most rewarding experience.

I knew this boy who I had met several times before. He was undoubtedly the most handsome creature I had ever met. I knew him through my good friend, who also happened to be his cousin. I wanted to ask someone that I knew, but was not incredibly "love struck" by (to avoid awkwardness). So, as you can guess, I chose to ask him.

I needed an idea that was creative, simple, unromantic, and unforgettable. This was how I accomplished that goal:

  1. I purchased a stuffed animal frog.
  2. I made a crown out of construction paper that said: "Sadies?" and attached it to the frog.
  3. I made a pop-up card out of magazines, pipe cleaners, and lots of elmers glue.
  4. The Most Important Part: inside the card I made a frog that popped up that said (the key note): "Of all the froggies in the lake...YOU are the prince I want to take"

The execution:

I simply gave him the card and frog after a day at the beach of playing volleyball, boogie-boarding, and lots of laughs and jokes. It was great since you can simply do this in any way you want, especially for the shy and innocent girls, as I was.

Where did it go?

He said yes of course! Sadie's was a complete and utter blast. Went to a baseball game, played volleyball, and then had a bonfire at the beach where we roasted marshmallows and Hershey's chocolate bars.

I didn't see him much after that, until summer rolled round.

We hung out as friends again, it was simple and fun. We started dating one year later. After 16 months of dating, I asked him what he thought about me asking him to Sadies. He simply laughed and said it was the best way I could have asked him.

One month later, we both came home for spring break from college. We spent the weekend with his family, cooking dinner for a movie night. I left my sweatshirt in his room. When I was leaving the room, I noticed the frog I gave him for Sadies by his computer. It still had the crown on (Sadies was a little faded)

It's been 7 years to date when I last asked him to that Sadies so long ago. We are now engaged, and he still has that frog.

Ideas For Asking a Guy To a Dance

Ok, I recently asked my friend to a dance. What I did was I went to each one of his classes before school started and I gave his teachers a little pumpkin with a note that said "would". The next class would have a pumpkin and the note would say "you". I went through his classes, and as he got to each class he would have the notes of "would", "you", "go" "to" "_____", "with" and at his last class I would walk in and say "me".

It totally worked and it kept him thinking who it was throughout the whole day. (10/28/2009)
