Dares for Your Boyfriend Over Text

A reader wrote in the other day and asked me, “Ryan, what are some really good dares that I can send to my boyfriend over text?” I loved this. When you’re looking for some dares for your boyfriend for over text game play, then you’ll need a few inspiring ones!

The reality is that most women want to see if their boyfriend or crush is going to do what they say! And let me tell you, this will certainly reveal who they are and what they value! Did you know that there’s actual studies that show playing games with your loved one can increase your “relationship health” levels? It can! It strengthens relationships in very positive ways! Meaning it’s fantastic that you and your partner are deciding to do this together!

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! Playing truth or dare can be a great way to get to know people. And playing over text message can be great for couples who aren’t near each other at the moment!
