Fun Games to Play With Your Boyfriend
Having a boyfriend can be a wonderful way to add comfort and stability to your life, but it can be easy to slip into a routine where you find that things feel a little monotonous and boring. Playing games with your boyfriend is a great way to add a little spice to your routine and share fun experiences that can help you get to know each other in new ways and strengthen your bond! Below are three categories of games: General Games, Texting Games, and Double Date Games. We hope these ideas help you guys shake things up a bit!
General, Texting & Double Date Games
1Truth or Dare
Why this is a great game to play with your boyfriend: Truth or Dare is one of the most fun get-to-know-you games out there, so why not play it with your boyfriend? Although you can keep your questions and dares lighthearted, you also have the opportunity to open up with each other about some deeply personal stuff that might be easier to talk about in the construct of a game. Also, the more elaborate and embarrassing your dares are, the more you will be able to laugh about them together and foster strong memories! Truth or Dare is definitely an awesome way to strengthen the bond you have with each other.
2Blind Date Game
Why this is a great game to play with your boyfriend: Do you ever wish things were as exciting as they were when you two barely knew each other? Well, with this game you can recreate that feeling. Pick a time and a place together, but arrive to the location separately and dressed to impress. If he’s used to seeing you in dirty sweatpants and no makeup, this is a great opportunity to dust off that tight dress you’ve been storing in his closet. Remember, this is a night where you two are pretending to get to know each other. Think about some questions you would ask on a first date, you’d be surprised how many of these answers you thought you knew, but forgot the first time during the excitement of getting to know each other originally!
Why this is a great game to play with your boyfriend: Though there are a lot of movie games out there, we have come up with one that we think would be very sweet and fun to play with your boyfriend. Here’s how it work: Choose a movie that the two of you will watch together. For the sake of an explanation that is easy to visualize, let’s pretend that the movie is a nice round number at 90 minutes. Make a deal that each of you will have control of the remote for 15 minutes at a time, after that time is up, you have to give it to the other person. During each 15 minutes, whoever has control of the remote can pause the movie whenever they want. When the movie is paused, whoever does not have the remote has to tell the other person one reason why they love the other person. This game is super fun and romantic because even though the movie will still be playing, the person who doesn’t have the remote needs to constantly be thinking about why they love the other person since they may need to answer at any moment! On that note, it might be a good idea to choose a movie that the two of you have seen before since you probably won’t be paying super close attention!
4Complete my Sentence Game
Why this is a great game to play with your boyfriend: During this game you will text each other an incomplete sentence about yourself and the other one has to finish it correctly. For example, you might say: “my favorite movie of all time is _____.” You can make this game last as long as you want, but it might be a good idea to make a general timeline and some rules before you get started, for example: each person can ask a question once per hour and must answer a question within 10 minutes. Ultimately, whoever gets the most correct answers at the end wins the prize. But before you begin this game, you guys need to agree upon the prize! You can either choose one prize (for example a fancy dinner paid for by the other person) or you can each choose a unique prize that you will get only if you are the winner. Either way, just ensure that you two are on the same page about what the prizes are! This game will help you get to know each other better and it will be competitive in a fun way!
5Create a Story Together
Why this is a great game to play with your boyfriend: This game is super fun and leads to hilarious results. Decide on the opening line to a story but leave the end blank. For example: “One day Kenny walked in the door to find ______.” Whoever starts the game needs to complete the sentence and add a new sentence with the last work left blank. Then the other person needs to do the same thing. This game is always better if you make an effort to make the story weird! Since you’re doing this over text, this is a great way to make a boring day a little bit more fun and at the end of the day you two can meet up and laugh about your creation together!
Why this is a great game to play with your boyfriend: Charades is a classic. This is a great way to spend some time with another couple (or multiple couples!) that you are friends with and have a lot of fun in a social situation where you don’t need to worry about people feeling like they are third-wheeling.
7Cards Against Humanity
Why this is a great game to play with your boyfriend: This card game is so fun and will make you laugh a lot harder than your average card game, we guarantee it! Some of the content on the cards can be a little raunchy or politically incorrect, so make sure that you play it with people who are able to let loose in the context of a game.
Playing games with your boyfriend is a great way to reconnect as a couple and have fun together. Even though the idea of playing a game with your boyfriend may feel childish or uncomfortable at first, keep an open mind because it is actually a great way to bond and is always more fun than it looks! And worse case scenario, if you and your guy both agree that playing games with each other is dumb, it’s still a good thing because you just found out that you two have another thing in common!
