Embarrassing Dares Date Idea 

It’s easy to get into a rut of just Redbox-ing or Netflix-ing a movie for date night- every date night.  And while that can be a cheap and easy way to relax, it’s not always a great way to reconnect.  At the end of the date I’ve usually just fallen asleep, and we haven’t even TALKED to each other.  So here’s a fun date night alternative packed with embarrassing dares that will have you cracking up in no time. And don’t worry- it’s still totally cheap and easy!  Promise.  Just stick a few of the easy dares printables in your purse and go.

Easy Dares for the Mall Guide

When I was in high school, my friends and I use to love to play Mall Dare.  Anyone else?  We’d write up funny and embarrassing dares on slips of paper and then head to the mall.  Then we took turns picking out a slip of paper and completing the (totally embarrassing) dare that was written on it.  So many inside jokes and memories were born playing Mall Dare.  In fact, my husband heard so many “Mall Dare stories” from me that he decided he wanted to try it out ourselves and this date night version of the game was born!

Embarrassing Dares and Mall Cards

When I first heard that idea, I was a little apprehensive.  After all, Mall Dare is one thing when you’re a silly teenager, but it’s a whole different ball game when you’re a grown woman and mother of 3.  Right?  Wrong!  I decided to be a good sport and play along (my husband can charm me into doing anything), and we seriously had SO much fun doing the crazy and easy dares!!  By the end of the night we were laughing ourselves silly.  Something about acting like a kid again with the embarrassing dares totally reminded me of when we first started dating. We just loved it and I think you will to! Keep reading to take a closer look at all the deets.

  1. Love, love, love it! For the past year or so I’ve been trying to think of ways to do this as a group date. I couldn’t come up with solid rules that would make the game fun. Thank you for figuring it all out for me! I’m stealing this for a winter group night! Thanks girl! xox <3

    1. Oh, I think it would work GREAT for a Girl’s Night Out! 🙂 Or maybe you could convince your hubby to try it with the blank score card if HE came up with the dares. That way he can come up with ideas more in his comfort-zone. Especially if you wagered something REALLY good for the winner. 😉 Good luck!

  2. Thanks for this! My husband and I live in a small town so when we go out of town, I like to hit up the mall but he hates shopping. It’s also hard to find things that we can do that don’t require planning ahead (like a play or something). We’re going out of town this weekend so i’m going to see if he’ll want to do this! It sounds like a lot of fun. He’s also really hard to embarrass and i’m easy, so he’d have fun with the proposal one.

  3. Hey there! I LOVE this idea! I definately want to use this idea, but for some reason I am having trouble with downloading the file 🙁 could I have another link or maybe just a run down of what is on the card? Thanks! So sorry to bother you!

  4. No way! These are hilarious! As much of an extrovert that I am… I can’t handle getting embarrassed… especially in public! lol I could probably do most of the ideas, but would totally blush doing others. We have a few malls in town…. hmmmm…..

    1. It really was hilarious!!! My husband totally won because I was choosing the least embarrassing ones- but we had a ball! If you get the guts- let us know how it goes. 😉

  5. I thought this was absolutely hilarious!!! Here are some ideas to add to the card:

    – (If you decide to prep ahead of time) Make vanilla pudding & put it in a mayo jar, eating it in public.
    – Around the malls here, most of the time, you see people running. If so, slow down while driving, and play Eye Of the Tiger for them. haha!
    – Go to the opposite sex’s side in a clothing store, pick out clothing in that section, and ask the clerk if you can try them on! Act like your trying them on in the dressing room, then come out saying, “I guess it wasn’t in my size.”
    – If you have a Burger King in your mall, order something from a competitor’s menu, like a McDouble from McDonald’s or a burrito.

    I’ll def print these out!!!

      1. Thank you! I’ve told hubby about this date idea and he loves it! We’re both clowns no matter where we are and it makes our love so much stronger. I can’t wait for our date! And whoever does more dares gets a treat of their choice at home. 😉

  6. We did the Mall Dare as a group date and had a blast. We added extra dares, and at the end we tallied up points, boys vs girls and had a blast. Just needed a fun group date with grandparents watching the kids.

  7. Oh my gosh! This is hilRious! I was laughing so hard just from reading the dares! GREAT game thank you! I just hope I can build up the courage to try them ha!
