Alright ladies, if you are reading this, then it must be that time of year when it's our turn to ask the guy to a dance. Ok, so maybe it's not uncommon for girls to ask guys out these days, but it's what's expected for Sadie Hawkins.

If you are asking a friend, it's a pretty easy process, but if you are asking a crush, then it takes a little more nerve. One way to help ease those butterflies is to come up with a fun and unique proposal. Whether you know the guy well, or you just admire him from down the hall, a memorable proposal may help seal the deal.

Here are 60 plus ideas to help you get your dream date. Good luck!

What Is a Sadie Hawkins Dance?

Sadie Hawkins comes from the L'il Abner comic strip. It was a day when the unmarried women could chase the unmarried men and claim one.

Nowadays, it's an annual school dance where the girls ask the guys.

What to Think About When Getting Ready to Propose for the Dance

When picking out a Sadie's proposal, you don't want to pick your favorite idea, you want to choose something that he will like.

Some things to think about are:

  • What is his favorite sport?
  • What is his favorite band or song?
  • What is his favorite hobby?
  • What is his favorite movie, television show, or book?

You also want to consider his personality. If he's really shy, he might not like a lot of fanfare in front of half of the school.

Chances are good that you know who you are asking fairly well, so try to think about everything before you pop the question.

Ways to Ask Someone to the Sadie Hawkins Dance

Let's get started! Here are loads of ideas for you.

A sports theme is always popular when asking someone to a dance. In fact, in an informal survey that I am taking in an article I wrote about homecoming proposals, sports is currently the number one theme people prefer.

      Hi Dianna - I hope you are doing well. How can anyone go wrong with donuts! I never had the nerve to ask anyone either, but it's more and more popular. Thanks for reading!

      Oh my, I do like the donut idea! Very sweet way to ask and the benefits are so good. I never had the nerve to ask someone when we had these in high school. I am sure this idea would have resulted in a yes with little effort.
