So my senior prom is coming up, the other day I went over to my friends house and told her I wasn't going to prom. She said that would be the biggest mistake not to go so she said she would try to find me a date. She ended up texting my best friend. I've known him since I was 7, he goes to a college 3 hours away, and we've always had a super flirty relationship, we even hooked up once. She basically asked him if he'd be down to go with me to prom, and he said I would literally love to go with her, he was asking when it was and was saying I would definitely go if she needed a date, he asked if it would be awkward and if I would even want to go with him and said he would go if I really needed a date, then he said he needed to text her when he could see straight and a week passed and no text so she texted him what's the deal. He asked when it was and my cousin told him an he never responded. I don't know what to do? If you were in his position would you ask your best friend since childhood to prom knowing she doesn't have a date? Or is that weird considering you aren't even in high school and it isn't coming directly from the girl? Should I ask him or does he even sound interested? What would I say
Should I ask him to prom?

If you want to go with him you should ask him yourself. Your cousin means well but it's time to cut out the "middle man" from this equation. I'm guessing he's a college freshman? They get invited to proms all the time.0
What Girls Said 1
So many girls are tempted to ask the guys to their prom, fearing that the guys get cold feet, that they're shy, etc. We rely on the futile he-said/she-said of friends, which trains us to do the same as adults. You're training the guy to be a slacker and wait for girls to come to him rather than stepping up to the plate.
I had to ask a guy to my prom because I went to an all-girl's school. That is the specific exception in my opinion. If you're in a co-ed school and a guy hasn't asked you, go on your own -- with a group of friends. Please don't turn your big night into a sad Tailor Swift replay.
Your memory of that night shouldn't be about the awkward engineering of getting the date. It should be a celebration of this major milestone in your life -- GRADUATION, YOUTH, LIFE! Go and enjoy yourself. Lave all the texting, gossip and high school stuff behind. You're GRADUATING from that to bigger, brighter things.
