The best prom advice we can give you
Search among the people you see often. Nobody says that you see that person every day, but it may be so, we suppose you have friends in common. Inviting someone who does not know anything about is risky. First of all, it’s your last party with your beloved generation of classmates and sitting at the table and having to explain each of the private jokes you make with your friends can be awkward. Also, you cannot leave him alone for a while, because it is likely that another girl appears or find someone he knows (and it surely happens).
You must have the confidence so that you feel comfortable with the person you decide to go. That is, between going with friends with whom you laugh a lot or with a person you saw twice? Go with your friends! But if you want to go with that particular person, arm yourself with courage and decide calmly and propose it casually. But please not by Whatsapp. Call by phone or ask him directly, we are sure he will tell you a great YES.
