Adolescent dating can an important experience for social and emotional development. Sometimes couples can't figure out what to do together and end up watching TV, which doesn't help to develop any relationship. Dating games for teenagers provide enjoyable ways for teens to get to know each other better and add fun to their relationships.

Text Messaging Games

Twenty Questions is a texting game in which one player thinks of a person, place or object and the other player asks 20 or fewer "yes" or "no" questions to guess what the person, place or object is. This can be played with a romantic and personal twist. For example, one person might have to play 20 Questions to guess where the other wants the next date to be, or guess a surprise gift. You can also play the classic teen game of Truth or Dare while texting. To prove you completed a dare, you have to take a picture of it and send it. Truth questions can be personal, such as "When did you start liking me?" to help couples get to know each other.

Board Games

Play a board game, especially one that requires strategy, such as Monopoly, Scrabble or chess. This gives teen couples the chance to be competitive, show off, bond and communicate. Trivia games such as Scene It? are good for couples to get to know each other's interests.

Would You Ever

Would You Ever helps teens learn a lot about their dates based on their answers to questions. Make up wild hypothetical situations and ask your date if he or she would ever do such a thing, starting with "Would you ever." For example, "would you ever do a parachute jump?" or "Would you ever eat raw meat?" Take turns asking the questions, and be creative.

Three Truths and a Lie

To play Three Truths and a Lie, the person who goes first comes up with three things about herself that are true, and one that is a lie, mixing up the order in which she says them. For example, "I have been to France, I love chocolate, I can speak Japanese, and I drink green tea every day." "I love chocolate" is the lie, but it would be hard for someone to guess that it's the lie, especially when the other three seem less likely to be true. This is a great way to learn more about your date and to show off interesting things about yourself.
