Everyone knows the best way to someone’s heart is through food. Ask your BF or crush to prom using the typical heart-shaped pizza idea, a box of donuts, or even candy bars laid out on a poster telling a cute story. We’ve even seen people get asked to prom using tacos — now THAT’S hard to say no to! You can also make your guy work for it a little bit by having him complete a word puzzle. Obvi the solution will spell out, “Will you go to prom with me?”

If you want to playfully embarrass him a bit — and you’ve got the guts to do it — ask him in front of his teammates or friends. You can even have his pals participate in the action by spelling out prom on their chests and lifting their shirts when the time is right. If you’re more into a casual approach though, try writing “Prom?” on a basketball — or any other kind of ball — and toss it to him before he heads into the locker room. Any way you do it, you KNOW he’s going to be super shocked, not to mention majorly impressed by your confidence! So what are you waiting for?
