8 Best Truth Questions To Get To Know Someone
Start with the best. These are guaranteed to get you some of the best responses and lead to some of the best conversations. All you have to do is pick the ones that work best for the people you're talking to and try them out.
Here are the 8 best truth questions to ask:
1. When was the last time you told a lie?
Find out what people lie about and how recently they last did...and if they did it to you. You can find out a lot about people about the lies they tell. It's the dirty truth that turns a good conversation into a juicy one.
2. Did you enjoy your first kiss?
A fun, embarrassing story is sure to go along with this trip down memory lane. You can accompany this with a good dare like having them demonstrate and explain the setting of the first kiss and you all can pick the funniest thing out of all of them. Let's just hope this doesn't turn out to be one of those dirty dares.
3. Have you ever wet your shirt from crying over a TV show or a movie?
Use this one on the tough guy in the game to find out what gets him to tear up. Random questions like this are great to challenge toughies who pretend they don't cry. You'll be surprised at what scenes or stories get them to cry.
4. What is the most embarrassing thing that your parents have caught you doing?
Here's a great opportunity for a very uncomfortable confession and a great laugh. You may very well be hearing the worst thing your friends have been caught for. If you want some dare ideas, you can stage a little skit about the best one you hear from your friends.
5. If you could say anything to one person in your life without any consequences, what would it be?
Whether a criticism, a complaint, or a confession of love: this question will get a powerful answer. You're going to hear either the meanest thing or the dumbest thing ever and it will still make an impact.
6. What’s something in your web browsing history that you’d be embarrassed about if shared on a social media app such as Instagram?
If they'll answer truthfully, you're guaranteed a great laugh. You don't need a dare generator to know that there's a great dare that can accompany this. Have them share their most embarrassing search on Instagram for 24 hours and see what kind of replies they get.
7. Have you ever shared a secret you shouldn’t have, or promised you wouldn’t?
Questions like this make the perfect game. They'll tell you a lot of things about what people are willing to share. From the tattles of children to a huge break in trust: this truth question can run the gamut.
8. Do you like or hate it when they sing "Happy Birthday" on your birthday?
You can also ask them if they have any videos of people singing to them on their birthday and actually see how they react to it. Whether they are happy or looking awkward, you'll have a laugh for sure.

10 Good Questions That'll Make You Spill The Embarassing Truth
Use some of the funny truth questions below to get genuine and genuinely amusing answers.
Here are 10 funny questions to ask:
9. Who is the last person that you stalked on social media?
An ex- or future partner? An old friend you're jealous of? The answer is sure to tell you a lot. If they tell you that they don't stalk anyone, that's the biggest lie. Everyone has a guilty stalk on social media.
10. What's the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you this year?
Limit it to this year so they can't go with their old standby answer. Make them think. Good questions like this tend to bring everyone together, especially when the answers are funny and memorable. You'll be talking about it every time you all get together.
11. Who in this room do you think would be the worst date?
A moment for hard, but amusing, truth. Make sure to press for a "why" to get all the reasons. You can even turn this into a dare question by challenging them to actually go on the date and it can be a great conversation topic when you all get together again.
12. How obsessed are you with your celebrity crush?
Everyone has a little obsession with the celebrities they idolize. Some of the hardcore fans do the craziest things just to feel a connection with their celebrity crush. This question presents a great topic because there are a lot of follow up questions.
13. Are you one of the people who panicked when the toilet paper became out of stock in every supermarket?
That was a crazy time. People bought a lot because they were afraid other people would buy more and they'd run out. It was a vicious cycle. Pay attention to their faces when you ask this question. If someone is flustered or looking down, they're probably one of those!
14. What book are you embarrassed to have read?
Romance books, children's adventure books, or crazy "how-to" books: everyone has an embarrassing read on the shelf. It's going to be different for everyone but it's going to be a good laugh.
15. How many selfies do you take each day and how many were qualified to be included on your Facebook status or story?
We've all been there, looking so good with the right clothes, the right hairstyle, and the right mood, that we felt the need for a selfie. Or ten selfies, at that. The bigger the gap between the selfies taken and the selfies posted, the funnier it gets.
16. What do you eat when you can choose anything and no one is around to see?
Find out someone's number one guilty pleasure when no one is around to judge. A fun game is to have everyone guess each other's guilty eating pleasure. You can even dare them to eat their weirdest food combos while you're all together.
17. Have you ever peed on a carpet, sofa, or bed due to too much drunkenness?
This is probably the grossest habit anyone can have when they're drunk. If there's someone who does this, it's probably time to get new friends. Kidding aside, this makes for a great and funny story that you can all laugh about.
18. How did you find out that Santa Claus is not real?
Re-experience the heartbreak all over again! Trod carefully, though. Someone in the group may actually believe in Santa Claus and experience heartbreak for the first time!

9 Honest Questions You Can Ask Adults
Truth and dare questions can often seem like a children's game, or something teenagers giggle over during sleepovers. However, the truth is, the game is a great way to get to know adults better as well.
Here are 9 best questions for adults:
28. How many romantic interests do you think you will have for the rest of your life?

An intro for an interesting story: how did it come about? What did they do? Is this one of their biggest fear? This question is great because leads to more questions and a great story.
30. What is your worst childhood memory?
People dwell on the good times, but bad moments define us as much as the good. Take caution when you ask this as you may be opening up about something that is a source of trauma.
31. What kind of parent do you think you will be?
For those coming to the age of parenthood, do they see themselves as a success? Why or why not? Remember that kids will mimic their parents' behavior and if you feel that you are a failure, your kids will also feel and do like you.
32. Do you think it's necessary for a boyfriend/girlfriend to have a nickname for each other?
You can ask this when there are couples in the room and you're a little annoyed about the pet names they have. It can be a way for you to make fun of them without them knowing.
33. What do you do when you are alone and no one is watching you?
See a person's silly dance inside a bathroom shower or find out about their love for eating peanut butter and jelly half-naked. You might even find yourself doing what others do when you're alone - just in case you're curious how it feels.
34. What kids' movie do you still secretly watch over and over?
Everyone has a favorite movie when they were young or a kids' movie that really spoke to them. We may all act grown up, but there are some kids' movies that you still can't turn off.
35. From whom did you inherit your butt, your mom or dad? Are you satisfied with it or not?
You can turn this into a dare too! Have them show off their booty with a great twerking contest and you've got yourself a fun night ahead.
36. Did you do a chicken dance just to provoke your enemy when you were a kid?
We all did crazy things to provoke the people we didn't like as kids. Have them demonstrate their own versions of the chicken dance and any other stuff they did.
