LGBT “Prom?”

Upon leaving my school Friday afternoon, I was walking to my car when I saw this:

It was my car with a surprise: a little blue bag of candy and balloons tied to it. I have to be honest, I got worried and even upset at first. I thought someone was playing a prank on me and I was too stressed out to deal with it since I was running late to a volleyball tournament. When I looked in the bag, I saw it was filled with literally EVERYTHING I LOVE:

-Pocky!!!

-Mounds Bars

-Jelly Beans

-Dark Chocolate

I looked at the balloons and some of them said, “Pop Me!” and inside of them were small chocolates! The bag itself said “To: (My name) From: (My guy friend)”.

I put it in my trunk and proceeded with heading over to the tournament. Later that night when I wasn’t busy, I checked it out again. I was confused why my friend did this. Was this a thank you for driving him to his house the other day? Because he didn’t have a ride?

Nope.

Inside one of the blue balloons was something besides a round chocolate that I hadn’t noticed earlier: it was a note.

I quickly popped the balloon and pulled out the note. It was a little slip that read, “Will you go to prom with me?
Oh my god! Wow! I couldn’t believe it. Already!? Was I really just asked out to prom? And by a guy!?

So here is the only thing. This whole set up was SO SO SO adorable but I don’t see this guy as anything more than a friend. We text and we are really good friends, but that’s just it, we are friends. He has asked me out in the past and I thought I made that clear to him. I was actually planning on asking a female friend of mine anyway. My parents would probably freak if they found out I was going to prom with a guy…

What do I do!?!? This is so confusing…

        What if you tell him that you will go with him, but no strings attached like no promises? If it goes well then great! But if it doesn’t you can still just be friends right? (I started dating a friend and it turned out really good. But he had to go away to college, but we are still the bestes friends).
