It’s hard to believe, but 2011 is right around the corner. With parties galore, you’re ready to ring in the New Year with the perfect date. Only problem? You haven’t exactly figured out who that might be. Don’t fret girl, we’ve got it all figured out for ya.
You and your BGF are like two peas in a pod. When you’re hanging out, he always makes you LOL. But even though he’s jokester, you know for a fact he’s always got your back.
Why he’s perfect: So much for having to worry about awkward silences with your plus one. Since you get eachother already, you’re setting yourself up for a stress-less evening, leaving plenty of time to relax and have fun with friends.
How to ask him: Skip stressing about finding a party pal and give your BGF a call. Tell him you’re in need of a date and, instead of trying to impress your crush, you’d rather casually go with him (he IS, after all, your best boy bud). He’s always been there when you needed him before, so why would this be any different? Just leave the midnight smooching to a simple peck on the cheek at most. Don’t want to start the year off on an awkward foot now, do ya?
The cutie from class
It’s a good thing you’re acing math because the only thing you’ve been able to focus on is that hottie in the front row. He seems nice and is good at math too, not to mention, his baby blue eyes make you melt. Um, Taylor Lautner, who?
Why he’s perfect: This is a great chance to get to know your crush. From how he spent the holidays to plans for 2011, you’ll have tons of things to chat about. Even better, with tons of other people there, you don’t have to worry about the stress of a one-on-one date.
How to ask him: Get up the guts to ask this cutie to the NYE party in person. Friends on Facebook? Shoot him a quick message, asking if he wants to grab pizza with some other buds this week. Yeah, it’ll be nerve-racking, but it’ll show him you’re interested and not too shy to talk.
You and your BF are a match made in heaven. You’ve been together for a while and he’s always the perfect date to any occasion. You wouldn’t want anyone besides your Romeo by your side.
Why he’s perfect: For one thing, you don’t have to worry about getting a rejection to your invite. Second, you’ll get to start the New Year with a smooch from someone special. Can’t get much better than that!
How to ask him: Obviously, he already knows he’s your go-to dude, but try asking him to the party in a special way to mix things up a tad. Slip a note into his pocket while your hanging on the couch watching a DVD or spell it out in a game of Scrabble. Whatever you do, it’s sure to make him smile.
