Ten things a guy must do to prepare for Homecoming

1. Find a date. Think of some creative way and ask that girl you’ve been creeping on Facebook for weeks.

2. After finding your date begin to search for your attire – a dress shirt, dress pants, and snazzy shoes.

3. Make sure your outfit matches your date’s!

4. Order you’re date a corsage, preferably one that matches her dress.

5. Make the plans. Ask where you both want to go before and what’s going on after.

6. Plan a night that your date will remember and maybe, if you’re lucky, she will start to “creep” on you too.

7. Don’t forget: You must pay for the tickets. Be a gentleman.

8. Pick your date up and take as many pictures as she wants. Be nice to her parents.

9. Treat the lady like a princess.

10. Dance with your date and have fun.
