50 Cute And Fun Games To Play With Your Boyfriend/Girlfriend

1. Guess the movie

On your phone or computer, play a scene of a movie you know your partner has watched. Cover their eyes or make them face their back to the screen to listen to the scene’s dialogue. Each time they guess the movie correctly, they get the point. The winner gets to pick the movie whenever you are out for your movie date.

2. Truth and lie

In this game, both of you can take turns to list three things about yourself, of which two are true, and one is a lie. You have to point out the lie and can also give a reason for your guess. It is a cool way to learn interesting facts about each other. The one with the maximum correct guesses can get a gift from their partner.

3. True or false

During this activity, if you cannot come up with three things about yourself, think of only one and ask your partner whether it is true or false. It is a good way to know each other better. Also, in a game like this, you get to mention funny stuff that you wouldn’t normally divulge to your partner.

4. Face don’t lie

Here is your time to make funny faces while asking questions you have wanted to ask each other. Sit facing each other and ask questions. Answer only with a ‘yes’ or a ‘no.’ For instance, you may ask, ‘Do you like my new spectacles?’ For a ‘yes,’ your partner will have to make an expression with their eyes—they can blink or roll their eyes. And for a ‘no,’ they can express with their lips only—purse their lips or pout.

5. Guess the tune

If both of you are into music, this is a fun game. Play only the prelude to a song and ask your partner to guess it. Make sure you opt for romantic songs only. Not only is this game full of fun and enjoyment but it will also strengthen the connection you share with your partner.

6. Truth or dare

Roll a bottle to start the game. If it turns to your side, pick truth or dare. Your partner would either ask you a question or give you a dare to be fulfilled. If you fail to answer the question or fulfill your dare, you get a punishment pre-decided and consented to by both of you. This game gives you the opportunity to strengthen your bond and get to know your partner on a deeper level.
