The Spooky Dating Drinking Game To Get Boo-zed Up With Your Pumpkin This Halloween

Halloween 2020 is going to be pretty different, but that doesn't mean the ghost stories have to social distance themselves. In fact, after a year like this one, what's a few more horror stories to add to the mix? If you and your partner dare, this boo-zy drinking game will definitely add a little spook into your All Hallows' Eve plans. Think you're brave enough to share your scariest dating stories with your pumpkin this October 31? You've come to the right spot.

This is the Ultimate Spooky Dating Drinking Game. Here's how it works:

The Rules Are Simple

Each person has to answer each question truthfully and if they've done what is in each number, they drink based on instructions. Oh, and...

  • Drink responsibly
  • Must be 21+ to play this game
  • Mix in some water, please and thank you

Get it? Got it? (In case you don't get it, go in order from 1 to 23 as each player answers each question and drinks if they've done the mentioned deed). Good.

Let's PLAY!

*Note: decide before the game whether you want to play the bonus round as well — which involves sharing more about these spooky dating stories. If you choose to opt in for the bonus, each player will either tell the story for that round to make their "opponent" (really their partner) drink or take the sip themselves. Things are about to get boo-zy (disclaimer).

I Have An Eating Disorder And I Refuse To Let It Kill Me

Even at my lowest, the number on the scale never seemed low enough... but was it ever worth the risk of losing my life?

Trigger warning: This article discusses topics that may be triggering for some readers.

I looked down at my thumb today. I know haven't been eating enough. I told everyone I would get all my vitamins and calories in. I totally wanted to eat more of the guacamole I bought the other day, but I counted what I had eaten and those numbers seemed a little too high.
