According to a survey sent out the all VHHS upperclassmen, 92.5% of 70 respondents said that they knew who they were going with before they were officially asked. Most people call this pre-asking, or making sure their date will say yes before they formally ask.

Ceci Gao (12) said that pre-asking is necessary.

“Pre-asking just affirms whether or not people want to go together,” she said. “It’s a decent thing to do in case someone has a conflict or doesn’t want to go, and respect for decisions like these should be mutual.”

She said that some people think that by pre-asking, it ruins the “surprise” aspect of the proposal, and Gao countered this, saying the official ask is a surprise already.
