The ‘couple challenge’ got a boost when Hollywood’s celebrated couple Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez shared a video of themselves performing it on their social media accounts. This fun trend that began in 2020 is taking social media by storm, with many new variations and additions to the concept.
Couple challenges are not just about testing the chemistry between couples, but they also provide a chance to enjoy some hilarious moments together. They are creative ways to add a dose of energy, intimacy, and newness to the otherwise monotonous daily lives.
We dug deep into the world of social media and have brought for you these gems of challenges to try with your partner. Get scrolling!
Top 7 Fun Couple Challenges:
1. The Original Couple Challenge:
This couple challenge is easy to play. Both of you should sit next to each other and keep your eyes closed. A third person recording the video will ask you some funny questions about each other. You have to point out either yourself or your partner in response to each question. A few examples of the questions are: Who is more romantic? Who cooks better? Who apologizes first after a fight? Who is the funny one? Who is the messy one? You can add more relatable questions to the list as per your choice.
2. Whisper Challenge:
In this challenge, the first partner should wear noise-canceling headphones and listen to music at such a volume that they can’t hear any outside sounds. The second partner will try to make the first one guess a word or a sentence through gestures, mime, and mouthing the words. The exercise can be hilarious as the partner with headphones makes wrong guesses, and the other partner tries different ways to make them understand. It will bring forth the chemistry between the couple.
3. Boyfriend-Does-My-Makeup Challenge:
Things can turn pretty interesting in this challenge as you let your boyfriend (or the partner with no knowledge of makeup) use your face as their canvas. The person on the chair can’t tell their partner which products are for which section of the face. It gets more exciting as the partner with the brush is free to apply the makeup in whichever way they deem fit, while the other sits quietly with their eyes closed. The outcome can either be funny or surprising (or both). Through this challenge, a partner will learn to appreciate the effort, time, and talent that go into putting on makeup.
4. The Floor Is Lava Challenge:
This challenge is for couples who appreciate the element of surprise and love to have some fun. When out on a walk or just running an errand, one partner can suddenly shout ‘the floor is lava’ and begin counting from five to zero. Within these five seconds, the other partner needs to find something to climb on — a sofa, a bench, a chair, or anything — to earn a point. If they fail, the challenger gets to punish them. You can decide the punishments beforehand or let them be a surprise. After this, the turn to shout ‘the floor is lava’ goes to the second partner. The turns keep shifting until one of the partners accumulates 10 points and wins the challenge. They can then choose a final punishment for the loser.
5. Blindfold Kissing Challenge:
For the challenge, both the partners are blindfolded and handcuffed. They stand with their backs against each other. Now, they have to try and kiss each other on the lips. It is fun to see how they try to explore each other through their bodies and voice. The rules say that if your lips touch any part of your partner except their lips, you have to begin again. It is also an excellent idea for a double date; the couple that manages to kiss first wins. You can also record the couples attempting the challenge as it makes for a hilarious watch.
6. Conjoined Twins Challenge:
This challenge tests your ability to work as a team. To try the challenge, you need to find a pair of pajamas or T-shirts in which you both can fit together. If you don’t find appropriate clothing, a rope tying both of you together from the waists can also do the job. The challenge is to accomplish a set of tasks while tied together. They can include eating something together, push-ups, jumping jacks, juggling balls, running, and other fun activities you want to do.
7. Seven Seconds Challenge:
In this challenge, you get to put your quick-thinking skills to the test. Like the floor is lava game, the partners get alternate turns to be the challengers and earn 10 points. You may ask your partner some questions or assign them a task they need to complete in seven seconds. For instance, you can ask them to list five things they love about you or fetch you a can of soda from the fridge real quick! You need to be creative to make the challenge fun and think up tasks that are doable within seven seconds. All accomplished duties get you one point, and the person to reach 10 points first wins. It is up to you to punish the loser or not. Moreover, the winner can make a wish, and the loser needs to fulfill it.
The list may include chocolates, syrups, cheese, wine, or anything else. After a while, you can switch turns to wear blindfolds. Make sure to select food items that are safe to taste or swallow.
Even if you are in a long-distance relationship, you need not worry about missing the chance to jump on the couple-challenge bandwagon. Read on for some fun challenges you can do with your partner over the phone or text messages.
Exciting Games For Long-Distance Couples:
1. Never Have I Ever:
A quintessential party game, you can also use it to get to know your partner at a deeper level. Each partner takes a turn to mention a thing they haven’t done before.
For instance, you can say, ‘Never have I ever been up all night’. If your beau has had even one sleepless night, they will either lose or gain a point. The first one to accumulate 10 points is the winner and chooses a wish that the loser should fulfill.
2. Truth Or Dare:
This game may take you back to school days. Both the partners take turns to choose either dare or truth. Then, depending on the choice, the other partner will either ask you a revealing question or dare you to attempt something unusual.
You have to record yourself doing the dare and send it to your partner. This game is a fun exercise in building intimacy between a couple as you get to know the daring and secret side of your lover.
3. Guess Where I Am:
This challenge works great when both of you have been together to a few places and have memories associated with them. All you got to do is define your location to the partner, share some things you did there together, and let them guess the place you are at.
What could be a better way to reminisce about the good old times? To make the game naughty, you can send your partner an image of a body part to guess, and let the sparks fly!
4. Fill In The Blanks:
This game is for couples that enjoy trivia. Begin a sentence but do not complete it. For example, you can write, ‘My favorite pizza topping is ….’ and let your partner guess the correct answer by filling in blank spaces. We are sure you will discover a lot of new things about each other through this game.
To add to the fun, you can also text your partner some lyrics to a song you two love and let them reply by continuing the lyrics further.
Rome wasn’t built in a day! If you make these challenges a part of your daily routine, you can bring back the intimacy and spark in your love life. Check out these 30-day challenges to build a deeper, more meaningful, and stronger relationship.
30-Day Challenges For Couples:
1. Ask ‘What Can I Assist You With?’
The simple act of asking if you can do anything to assist your partner shows how much you care for them. Make it a habit to help each other in chores around the house and see your admiration and love for each other blossom. Begin it as a 30-day challenge and try not to miss even a single day in between.
2. Hug Your Partner At Least Three Times A Day:
If you and your partner don’t hug often, you will appreciate how this challenge brings more intimacy and gratitude into your relationship. Enjoy those hugs, take a few moments to feel the warmth, and don’t push away.
3. Leave A Sweet Note:
Walking into a room and seeing a note that has a nice message from your partner has the power to brighten up your day. Don’t shy away from leaving cheesy messages and sweet nothings at odd places for your partner to discover.
4. Laugh With Your Partner:
Another habit to adopt in your routine life is sending across funny memes and GIFs, telling jokes, and playing pranks on one another (those that both enjoy). It does not have to be while watching a funny movie alone.
Relationships are not limited to romance. They can be a roller coaster of excitement, fun, and never-ending challenges (both fun and otherwise) – and these social media couple challenges do just that. They can help you discover the fun, reinvigorate your relationship, and have some enjoyable and memorable times together.
