Right that's a thing. Well good luck with that.
Anyways asked the girl I like to prom To prove for myself I could do it. 5 weeks ago or so. Well I can't say I got a yes not that expected it but things went okay. Things are sometimes so much easier when you know its a guaranteed no.
She thought it was cute of me to ask and gave me a hug. As I mentioned I got a no since she was going with someone else, then she asked Because I after hearing the no said that it was okay and I would go alone. Maybe I shouldn't have done that. if I did have anyone else to ask and I was like "Well yes but actually no." So now I'm going alone to prom but I'm not really complaining since I inteded to do so in the first place.
Maybe this'll give you some moral boost or maybe something to take away from my experience. The moral here is that even if you don't get a yes you might still get something good out of it. Also to boost your confidence I think you might have more luck than me with whoever you asks in the end.
