Prom. It is approaching, and I am sure you are not ready. Do not fear, Smith Mohler is here. When people think of Prom the first thing people think is: WWSMD? What would Smith Mohler do? First, I would suggest figuring out who you want to take, and stem from there. If you are asking someone who you are particularly close with, I would definitely make a nice sign to show that you are asking them for a reason better than your lack of a date. Try to be creative, as I know that is difficult for some of you, unlike me. I am so creative.
The worst part of the whole process is actually going through the awkwardness of a prom ask. You are just going to want to get in the zone, and tune out the haters. As my favorite artist Taylor Swift famously said, “'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake I shake it off, I shake it off”.
When, or if, your potential date is approaching, walk towards them with the swagger of a nfl cornerback. DO NOT STAND THERE WITHOUT MAKING A MOVE. You will embarrass yourself and have to see it on others peoples snapchat stories for the next 24 hours. That is not the move.
Last but not least, give your date a hug after she has had a hardy laugh at the creative sign you have prepared for them. If you're anything like me, you have a great shot at securing a date.
By the way, I always snaptext my dates. Godspeed.
