Senior Ball - Asking a Girl

Ok, here's the thing.

This year, I'm going to ask this girl out to Senior Ball who I really like and so far she decently likes me (we do a bunch of stuff together, talk a lot). Ball is in June. Theres about 7 months between now and then. How should I ask her out and when?

This year I'm going to try to make my Ball experience as amazing as possible because last year I felt like a ***** cause I didn't go to Prom, because the person I asked said no and then the ticket-buying deadline passed. It was mad weird too because I'm popular in the school, know everybody, and am very well-known, party and all that stuff, along with being Student body president, so a lot of people didn't know what to say once people heard I didn't go since...yea. I felt like complete crap that night, so much that I didn't even go to an afterparty at one of my friends. One of my friends said he wants to help me out this year. I didn't tell him yet who I want to ask but the thing is he hates the person who I'm asking which would make it a bit weird.

What should I do? [I apologize for the rant mixed in with the above paragraph.]

    Ask her! And with a dance, it doesn't have to be all...serious and dramatic, does it? I went to prom last year with a friend, but most of the people in our group, which was half guys and half girls, didn't have dates...we all just went as a group. Date or no date, just have a good time with your friends and don't put any pressure on yourself. I don't think most girls are out to just break guys' hearts. We're not that mean!

    But anyway, you should ask her. She just might say yes. If you never ask, you'll never know. :)

    Go ahead and ask her.
    And if she says "no," just say you only asked her because you were dared to. ;)

    If she says no, just laugh it off with her. :)

    If she says no, you can always just run away crying, ruing the day you were born?

    except. it actually does work. because sometimes you actually are dared.

    You're welcome to ask her now, but I'd wait till right after Christmas break. Unless you think someone will beat you to it. I'm only a sophomore, but I know people who've already been asked to Prom, and most thought it was kind of strange. But they also didn't know the guy as well. I mean, if the junior I liked asked me now, I'd be cool with it. And we sound a lot like you guys--hang out, talk a lot. Whatever you feel's best.

    maybe im socially awkward, but I've always thought that 1 month before the dance was sufficient to worry about and ask the girl, not ... 7 months. Just pursue the girl now for the sake of dating/a relationship, whatever you want, now... and then when it comes time for the dance, evaluate whether you want to ask her then. Do people seriously ask 7 months before the event? Hell, in seven months, i may detest the girl im into now...

    @Nick017 - That's what I thought to ... I'm not asking until 2 months before, at the most

    Thanks for your responses everyone - I've talked this over with a few of my friends as well including the person she went to prom with last year. I'm a bit nervous because a friend of hers who is closer is also going after her, as I learned from someone else (ohhh high school drama! lol).

    I think I'm going to ask closer to February/March, once i get closer friendship-wise to her (we've known each other for a good amount of time and are close, but still). The only thing is that sometimes I'm never sure what she actually thinks of me, because sadly everyone says that she is a flirt, but I'm still going for it.

    Don't fear rejection, just ask her straight out. I've asked girls out in the least likely places and times because the idea popped into my head and I decided to act on it in the spur of the moment (and the adrenaline rush is awesome as hell, seriously).

    Sadly, I've been rejected every time ;_;

    You need help asking a girl to the senior ball? I think what you need help is growing some senior balls and just do it!

    Sorry for the pervertness lol. I couldn't resist. Anyways, I think you should stop thinking about it and just think about what 'could' happen if you asked her out. -- I wish I could take my own advice =[

    Do NOT ask her to the ball now, that's all I have to say. It will make you look lame and desperate.

    Also, if you're not sure how she feels about you, make the typical high school move: have a mutual friend ask her casually if she likes you. Works well almost every time.

    I asked like 4 people to my formal - got rejected by all but I really didn't care - they were basically friends - bodies in a way

    if you want to go with her
    this is coming from a girl
    as her - before someone else does... if your really nervous just say as friends
