Think Out of the Box With These Date Night “Truth or Dare” Questions

August 9, 2022

Truth or Dare can be a really fun game if you don’t limit yourself to more-than-slightly annoying dares like, “I dare you to strip naked” and other horny teenager-like antics. 

Has no one ever really considered the fact that this is the perfect game for when you want to know someone’s true intentions? You can even add a random lie detector to the mix and watch the truth flow — petition to add this to every politician’s manifesto? Anyway, I digress.

Try out these unconventional truth or dare questions for couples to elevate date night.

Truth — Does your mother like me?

Before you end up dating someone for donkey years and either break up or end up with an evil mother-in-law.

Dare — Show me the last five people you texted on WhatsApp

Just so you know if you’re dating yourself.

Truth — Does your head usually touch?

Wouldn’t it be better to know now if the person you’re dating likes semo before you end up in holy matrimony?

Dare — Make me laugh with your best joke

This is honestly too easy because they can just say “Nigeria” and they’ll still win.

Truth — Who are you voting for in 2023?

My dear, open your ears and listen well to whatever they have to say. 

Dare — Make me your Twitter profile picture

If they say stuff like, “I’m protecting you from the world,” you’re dating yourself.

Truth — Is Japa part of your future plans?

Again, it’s better to know now before one person gets an opportunity abroad and the other person turns into an enemy of progress.

Dare — Text your parents that we’re getting married

If they’re willing to try out this expensive joke, it’s possible they see a future with you.

Truth — How many children do you have?

Before you go and fall in love with Daddy Twins.

Dare — Recite the eight times table

At least if you don’t know maths, your partner should. So both of you don’t end up hiding when your children come home with quantitative reasoning.
