homecoming-journalismHomecoming proposals include creativity, nerves, and excitement. Girls typically ask guys to Homecoming, but this isn’t always the case.

Freshman Hope Thornton is one of many girls to ask a guy to Homecoming. Hope believes that “It doesn’t matter which one asks because it just doesn’t.”

Part of Homecoming Proposals is the nerves when asking someone. It evens happens with couples. People have different ways to overcome these nerves. Junior Jason Carter even broke the girls-ask-guys rule.

“I sucked it up and thought she’ll definitely say yes,” says Jason. “Be confident and make it creative. Don’t show you’re nervous.”

Hope Thornton had a different approach. “I overcame my nerves by asking online because I knew I’d be more nervous in person,” she said. “And if you’re asking someone, take in consideration what they like and if they’ll be nervous or not.”

Most of the time if you’re not asking, you’re being asked. “I think someone should keep in mind when being asked is that the person that is asking them is probably very nervous.  So don’t give them a hard time if they’re acting really nervous or if you don’t like the idea they used,” says Hope. Hope asked freshman Eric Foreman to Homecoming; even though Eric said yes, he has a tip for those who want to say no.

“Well if you’re being asked, and if you wanna say no, you should be very considerate of the other person’s feelings.”

Whether you’re male or female, get rid of those nerves, and ask the one to Homecoming before Homecoming on October 15th.

    This was a interesting take on a very covered topic! I like the diversity in coverage and the encouragement to be involved at the school.
