There's a lot that I remember from years in high school, and there's a lot that I don't. One of the things that I don't remember is elaborate promposals. I don't know, maybe I was oblivious and they happened, but I asked some of my high school friends and they couldn't remember ever hearing of a promposal happening at our school.

The same friends who couldn't remember any promposals happening at our high school tell me that they have kids who are thinking about prom and creative ways they can ask someone to be their date, so I thought I'd help.

Much like marriage proposals, promposals have taken on a life of their own. Take for instance the girl from Georgia who was asked to go to prom through a staged drug bust and fake arrest. (Wait, what?!? Can you even imagine?) A police officer's dash camera caught the entire thing including the couple being pulled over, the search through the vehicle, the fake arrest, and then the actual promposal.

If you're a high schooler looking for fun promposals ideas that don't involve drugs or the police, or if you're a parent looking to help out your kid, here five promposal ideas to get your creative juice flowing.
