It's that time of year again...Prom season 2014 is upon us, and coeds are coming up with more and more creative ways to secure a date for this rite of passage. Their calling it Promposals nowadays, and these antics include but are not limited to popping the question with food, using the front yard as an artists canvas, or good, old fashioned public displays of affection/humiliation (depending on who you ask).
When sharing a meal with an intended prom date, whether a hopeful guy or gal is sitting across the table or sent a surprise delivery, food can be used in many ways. Some have enlisted the help of sushi chefs to spell out “Prom?” in his/her favorite roll. While others have gifted a romantic box of chocolates or heart-shaped pizzas with notes enclosed asking for a date.

Similar to food messages, some Promposals are created by spelling out the question in the front yard of their sweethearts with things like candles, sidewalk chalk on the driveway, or even sporting equipment representing a favorite hobby. Some hopefuls wait in the yard for their answer, while others wait at home for called or texted reply.
Nothing could make a guy or girl feel more special than knowing that someone went to a lot of trouble planning to take them out for a fun evening. So, what could be more endearing than seeing a walking billboard of his/her Promposal coming towards them after 3rd period Geometry? Or how about being sent on a scavenger hunt through school to find clues of who your secret prom date hopeful might be? A tried and true favorite that has yielded many popular results is the classic lunchroom serenade.
Good luck 2014 Promposals-Have fun!
