What makes homecoming night exciting and a memorable event for highs schoolers is the fact that dating during the homecoming is okay from the point of view of parents. Most high schoolers who are not yet allowed to go on dates are formally given permission by their parents to go out with a date during this time. This is how an Immigration Lawyer I know allows his kid to do this for all of the big dances and formals.
The problem is, some students who focus on their studies and who didn’t go on secret dates now have the problem of choosing their partners or dates for the homecoming night.
If you have a steady group of friends whom you have known since first grade, then it is easy to get a recommendation for a date. You can even pick from among your friends. High school guys find it easier to get homecoming dates because they can always choose girls who are in a lower grade, who believe it is an addition to their reputation if they go out on a date with a senior. It is more often the girls who have a hard time finding homecoming dates.
There are many boys and girls waiting to be asked for the homecoming. The problem is; how does one pick a homecoming date?
Homecoming night is announced several months ahead of schedule to allow planning among the students, not only in terms of homecoming dress and the whole event, but also in terms of homecoming dates. Even before the homecoming date is announced, you should already plan a strategy to make your homecoming night unforgettable.
Your girlfriends can also help you get a homecoming date by endorsing some of their buddies or even their brothers. Start looking around for friends who have brothers who may either be your age or older than you. Somebody from a different school would be okay, as long as you know his family background and you have made sure he is not “creepy guy.”
