Crazy Dares

I got asked by a reader, “Ryan, what are some really CRAZY dares that you would only dare to people that have a screw loose?”

I love this question. There’s a certain personality type that’s going to love doing crazy dares. The types of dares that you predict someone would say, “No way, there’s no way I’m doing that!”

We all know this personality type: it’s the daredevil.

Before we jump in, my experience with truth or dare…

I’m an avid fan of the game. In fact, I’ve written a few great articles on Truth or Dare (and how to play it—along with some fantastic game questions), dares to send over text, dares for kids, and generally GOOD dares that are perfect for anyone.

So you could say that I’m an expert in the game. And I am! I loved playing it as a kid. And it defined who I was both emotionally and physically (I learned to love a lot of young women this way! No… not in that way, get your mind out of the gutter!).
