Should I Ask My Friend to Homecoming?

QI really want to ask this girl I've known for a long time to Homecoming but, I'm afraid if she says no, it will be awkward every time I see her or talk to her and I don't want to lose her as a friend because of this.

What do I do?

AI understand your concerns. Rejection can be a scary thing. But if you never put yourself out there and take a chance, you will never gain anything either, and always be left to wonder "What If?" Sometimes the "What if's" running through your mind can be just as bad, if not worse, than a rejection. Because at least a rejection you know, and can start to move on from it, and get over it.

If you've known this a girl a long time I doubt that it will make things too awkward if you ask her to homecoming. She might really like to go with you. Next time you are talking to her just say "Hey, do you have a date for Homecoming yet?" and if she says no, then ask "Would you like to go with me?" If she says no you could just say "Oh, that's too bad. I was hoping that we could go as friends" or whatever. That way, you aren't really losing any face.

If you realize that things have started to become awkward between the two of you, tell her that you really like having her as a friend and hope that it didn't make her feel awkward by you asking her to Homecoming. And tell her that you'd like things to be the way they were before and that you value her friendship.

Good luck, and I hope you have a great time at Homecoming.
