Another day, another promposal.

As prom draws closer, hair appointments need to be scheduled, dinner reservations need to be made and, most importantly, creative promposals need to be planned. For many, creating an idea personal to their date is a challenge, and re-using a Twitter idea is disastrous. If ideas are running dry, try out these steps to secure a “yes.”

Steps to a “yes:”

  1. Ask the right person: Before you go through the effort of a promposal, make sure the person you want to take is both available and interested in going with you. A “no” after an elaborate promposal only ends in awkward stares and low self-esteem.
  1. Get the materials together: Posters are classic, so take a trip to Michael’s for posters, markers and glitter.
  1. Learn your date: To create a meaningful promposal, ask your date casual questions to find out details about them. Questions about favorite hobbies, interests and ways they spend free time are usually safe.
  1. Use the details in the promposal: If they love basketball, try a basketball theme for the promposal by taking them to a pickup game. If they love Star Wars, prepare your best Darth Vader voice.
  1. Create a phrase: Puns are the best way to go when finding a phrase to put on the poster. The cheesier, the better.
  1. Involve friends: The best way to keep the promposal a surprise is to have mutual friends lead your date to a decided location that fits in with the theme of the promposal. They will be less suspicious of a friend wanting to hang out then you inviting them to the park.
