“Promposals” is a rather new trend among American high school students, and essentially the act of “promposing” entails asking someone to prom in a very extravagant and innovative way. This is preferably done in public and in front of as many people as possible. Promposals are often shared online on social media, such as Facebook and YouTube.

As these promposals become numerous and more and more excessive, a general debate has risen. Some people worry that  promposals have become so important to  teenagers that not getting one or getting a refusal can have a negative effect on them. These teenagers are already under a lot of pressure when it comes to social media, self-representation and the entire experience of the prom. Others find promposals sweet and funny and argue that they represent a healthy step for the generation of the so-called hookup culture era.

In these study notes, we will focus on three articles that discuss the topic of promposals. In these articles, different attitudes towards promposals are presented. In the following sections we will introduce the three texts and outline the main points of view in each of them, consider some important stylistic features and finally emphasize important points for further discussion on the topic in general.
