Dear Elizabeth: Sadie Hawkins

Dear Elizabeth,

I want to go to Sadie’s but I don’t know who to ask and I don’t want to be rejected.




Dear Struggling,

I totally understand the struggle. You want to ask someone that you feel comfortable around, someone you feel would make the experience fun, and not awkward. Don’t ask someone that you only have admired from afar or have never talked to. Ask someone that you talk to, or have talked to before. Or go as friends! As far as being rejected, just know that it’s not the end of the world if you get turned down–better to take the chance than to wish you had.

If you are in need of cute ways to ask someone, then my usual recommendation of Pinterest is perfect. Search “Sadie Hawkins” or “Prom Proposals.”  If you don’t like any of those ideas, you can always just give him something that he likes, such as candy, and make a sign with a pun on it! (I’m an airhead but you’re a sweetheart, Sadie’s?) Pinterest also has great costume ideas, “Couples costumes.”


Good luck!

P.S. There will be a photo booth at the dance!
