You may be thinking about asking someone to a dance. A question that will pop up at one point or another is when? Some people like to ask earlier, but others may prefer to ask closer to the dance. Here are the pros and cons of asking someone early to a dance.

Cons: Breakups- If you are thinking about asking your significant other, that’s great! Just make sure that this is someone you know you’ll still be interested in by the time of the dance. If you ask your boyfriend/girlfriend a couple of months in advanced and you break up, you’re not going to want to go with that person anymore. It could make things pretty awkward.

Not friends- If you ask someone you don’t know very well to the dance it could be an excellent opportunity to make a new friend! But if you ask early and you never actually become friends with the person, there’s a good chance that you’ll be in for an uncomfortable night.

Pros: You have a date!- When you ask someone early you’re guaranteed a date. You won’t have to worry about struggling to find someone to go with you last minute.

Time to get a dress- When you ask early, you have time to get everything done before the dance. It can be a real struggle to find a dress and to make other vital plans for the night. Asking early will give you enough time to find the dress you want and to make everything perfect for your special night!

Well there you have it, these pros and cons are sure to help you make your essential dance decisions. Take these tips into account, and don’t forget to have a fantastic time at any dance you attend!
