Pretty sure that’s always been a thing, at least in my area. I’d say it’s basically the norm. I like when they’re just sweet and simple. I think the flowers, decorating the locker and cars are cute, anything more than that is too much for me. My prom date (now FI) would just write a sweet note, get chocolate and flowers and ask. Filling the car or locker with balloons was also really common.

1. A guy did this when I was a sophmore after our musical to his GF, but it was more of a joke at that time.  He was building up like he was going to purpose, and then asked her to the prom.  I didn’t here anyone else do it.  That had to be 2002/2003.

2. Just like really over the top engagement pruposals, I doubt it.

3. Its silly and stupid, but I won’t begrudge anyone doing it.  Kind of like the over the top engagment purposals, they are setting up a lot of other poor guys for too much expectations and a lot of other girls up for disappointment.

I think it’s a tradition in some areas that’s gotten more popular in the past few years.  I remember seeing it on some MTV reality show when I was in high school, but it wasn’t a thing in my are when I was growing up.<br />

cbgg:  I’m generally pretty neutral on these sorts of things but it has started popping up on my News Feed as I have prom-age cousins. One girl made a coffee mug at a paint your own pottery shop that said ‘Prom?’ after he finished his drink. I was a bit tacken aback. It seems too much like a proposal to me. I only graduated in 2007… which I guess is 7 years ago now, but it was NEVER the norm then.

It was definitely a thing when I was in high school, 2003-2008. I was in West Michigan, if it makes a difference.
