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.

u/franticantelope

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.

u/forgotusernameoften

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.

Criseist

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.

Domn94

Time to pick dare.

"What's your phone password?"

Abahot

Fair.

Giphy

Would you rather have sex or chocolate?

I said sex.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
