20 Fun Games To Play With Your Boyfriend Over Text

Texting. An art that most of us are familiar with but few people are able to master. 

Some of you might be thinking, “What’s so special about texting anyway?” And I’m sure those are the very people who struggle with finding the right words to say to their conversational partner(s). 

I’ll admit that it is definitely not easy to text someone especially if you talk every single day. How many topics can one person possibly think of?

Unfortunately, because of the coronavirus pandemic, many couples are left to continue their relationship through the phone.

If you've run out of things to talk about, there are some fun games to play with your boyfriend that only require the ability to text.

I’m a Gemini, ruler of communication and rambling about some of the most random topics you can think of. Being a master of anything does not necessarily mean you know how to work your magic at the snap of a finger. It takes tedious effort and patience to hone in on your talents. 

Texting your friends isn’t super boring because you guys might not speak every day. This leaves some wiggle room for sparking new conversations the next time you text! 

Texting your significant other, however, can be a bit… how do I put this lightly? It is almost like eating the same ice cream flavor every weekend. You love the flavor but sometimes you need to add sprinkles or chocolate syrup. 

Relationships are also pieces of art in their own unique way. When you’ve been texting your boo from dusk till dawn, you may find yourself wondering what to respond back with after you’ve run through your list of essential topics. 

Am I the only one who takes a minute to reply back to their boyfriend because I’m thinking of something to say? 

Every conversation you two have does not always require hour-long discussions and deep thought. Why not have some fun while you’re at it?

I have made a list of games to play with your boyfriend over text that will entertain you both for hours on end!

Who says a conversation can’t involve some friendly competition and a good laugh in between? 

1. Guess The Movie 

Cue up some of the most iconic movie quotes and quiz your man.

2. Never Have I Ever 

Keep it cute, keep it lighthearted. 

3. No Response 

This game requires a drink (or three). Each of you should ask the other a question, and if you agree to question, take a sip. If not, leave the drink alone. 

4. Baby Picture Questionaire 

Send each other 10 baby pictures and say one fact about each. At the end of the game, you should ask him about each photo to see if he remembered what you said. 

5. Two Truths and a Lie 

This game is pretty self-explanatory. Write out two truths about any topic you’d like and add in one lie. His job is to guess which one is the lie.

9. One Word One Answer 

Say a word to him and he has to guess what memory is attributed to the said word.
