What's the worst- revealing a dark truth or doing an embarrassing dare? It's truly a case of pick your poison, especially in social circles during childhood and adolescence. Here's the thing about truth, though- you can always lie.


Good call.

I got asked if I'd ever had sex with someone in the room other than my girlfriend. I had sex with her friend about 3 weeks before I even met my gf but me and her friend had decided to keep it secret because it was a one time thing.

I said no, and that turned out to be the right idea. Was with that gf for 6 years in a very loving and fulfilling relationship. I did tell her eventually, but we'd only been dating a couple of weeks, it would have ruined things. By the time I told her she didn't care.

That relationship ended, but I'm glad I had it.

Isn't that a scene in "Perks of Being a Wallflower"?

The worst is when you're asked who you would have sex with in the room and your just sitting there thinking "I'd definitely bang so and so," cause you're a horny 16-year-old but you lie because you're embarrassed and awkward.

u/Gunt_Inspector

Oh no.

I always gotta lie about when I lost my virginity because the answer is a low number and it kills the mood. It's a real pickle because I don't wanna lie but I've seen people bring that kind of stuff up in lighthearted games and it never ends well.

Why would you play that with your family?!

"Are you still a virgin?"

I mean I was playing with my family then my dad asked me that question what the hell was I supposed to say? "Why yes dad, I'm no longer a virgin. In fact, I lost it to your friends son Harvey."

u/insecurelittlegaykid

Fair.

I would never violate Truth or Dare rules like that.

u/SamsonBrolic

That's some childhood logic right there.

That I had had my first kiss. People I barely knew and wouldn't have to see again soon, wasn't going to let them think I was completely inexperienced.

Jingle bell ROCK.

Were you the one shagging [REDACTED] last year at the Christmas party?

Why yes, Susan. I was in fact Naughty Santa. But unlike the real thing, I come more than once a year.

u/PuPPy94new

Blast from the past.

I got asked if I'd ever performed fellatio. It was like 1994. I said "no", and got so defensive it ruined the whole game for everybody, but I blame the prick who asked.

To clarify, the reasons I lied and lied so aggressively was that I:

  1. Had homophobic foster parents.
  2. Had a girlfriend.

Bad call.

My social security number. Didn't even have it memorized at the time.

When Truth or Dare gets real.

Giphy

I was playing truth or dare with my Christian friends. I say truth when it was my turn and they ask "Do you believe in god?" I knew how extremely religious they and their parents were but I didn't want their parents to find out and prevent me from seeing them so just said "Yeah lmao".

I_Buy_Ur_Mom

The go-to question.

They always asked "are you a virgin?"

Most people lie because they are a virgin.

I lied and said I was a virgin. I wasn't, but it wasn't something I was particularly fond of talking about. It lost my virginity far too early. It was essentially peer pressure sex and I was 13.

I consider my loss of virginity was the moment I had enjoyable sex, and that was 17.

Aussie-Nerd

That's awful.

I was playing with a group of friends and my at the time c**t girlfriend. I was asked if I was ever in an abusive relationship. I had to say no. My girlfriend would hit me when she got mad. I had enough when she tried to attack me with a knife.

Time to pick dare.

"What's your phone password?"

Abahot

Fair.

Giphy

Would you rather have sex or chocolate?

I said sex.

Your home should be sanctuary, which is to say that we hope that nothing bad ever happens once we move in. Unfortunately, life doesn't always work out that way, and sometimes things happen that unnerve the hell out of us.

Is there anything more creepy than being alone at home... only to get the feeling that you're not alone at all? What if you were being watched?! It's the stuff of nightmares, isn't it? And I haven't even touched on the possibility of paranormal activity yet...

People Describe The Moment They Realized They've Been Doing Something Wrong For Years

It can be very embarrassing when you pronounce words wrong. Let's face it, the English language is super complicated, especially if you're learning it for the first time. You can't always trust yourself to pronounce things phonetically either because of all the different rules!

Recently, a relative pronounced the word "epitome" like "epi-tome." They were embarrassed when I corrected them. I told them that it wasn't a big deal, though they did note that they love that word, have used it for a long time, and that no one corrected them until that moment...

Ouch.
