By now everyone at school either knows what a Sadie Hawkins dance is or that we are having one soon. But how do people really feel about the whole idea of girls asking guys to the dance? Several students shared their thoughts on the upcoming Sadie Hawkins dance.
“I like that the roles are reversed, and girls get the opportunity to be creative and ask the boys,” senior Brady Hamilton said.
Many have similar thoughts as Hamilton about girls asking the boys. Senior Marshae Dabney had the same feelings.
“I feel like it would be nice for girls to get out of their comfort zones and ask guys out,” Dabney said.
Contrary to Dabney and Hamilton, junior Olivia Caplan and sophomore Sydney Williams think there are some drawbacks to the switch.
“It’s a good idea, but I feel guys will reject girls to prove a point that girls reject guys,” Williams said.
“Dances, in my opinion, are kind of stupid. They look cool on TV shows that are focused on high school, but honestly this idea sounds dumb,” Caplan said.
The girls have voiced their opinions on the dance, but how do the boys really feel about being asked out?
Junior Andy Liscio, is one of the many James River boys who feels that girls should go for it, and ask the boys out.
“Girls need to man up and ask someone,” Liscio said.
Junior John Morley believes that getting the girls to ask the guys out is a great idea.
“The girls ask the guys. It’s always a surprise; there’s nothing better,” Morley said.
People may disagree about the roles being reversed, but there is one thing we know for sure: it will be interesting to see how it all plays out. The first annual JRHS Sadie Hawkins dance will on Saturday, February 4th at 7:30. Tickets will be on sale in the open commons until Friday, February 3rd.
