But what do you do when you’re not next to the person or group you want to make a bet with?
Well, in this case, making bets over text is your next best option.
So in this post, I’m covering some of the best bets to make over text.
I’m going to break this into bets to make with your boyfriend over text, your crush, and bets to make with friends over text as well.
Let’s get to it!
The Best Bets To Make Over Text – Deciding What To Bet On
Before we jump into bets to do over text, let’s cover the topics you can actually bet on.
In other words, you have to decide what outcome both parties are betting on before you decide on what the bet consequence is for the loser.
Here are some bet ideas over text you can try:
- Bet on the outcome of a sports game
- Bet on the price of something
- Bet on completing a physical challenge (like doing a certain number of pull ups)
- Bet on the distance or travel time between two places
- Bet on who can eat or drink the most of something
- Bet on if a certain person will do something or not
- Bet on when someone’s birthday is
- Bet on if a character in a show or movie will do something or not
- Bet on who can stick to a new habit for the longest (like working out or reading a book every night)
- Bet on a heads or tails flip (this is a very easy bet idea)
Just remember: since these are bets to make over text, you might have to send video proof to the other person if the bet idea involves a challenge or specific outcome.
The Best Bets To Make With Your Boyfriend Over Text
Now that you have some ideas for what to bet on, let’s dive into the best bets to make over text in terms of what the consequences or rewards should be.
And for this first category, we’re looking at some of the best bets to make with your boyfriend over text.
1. Loser Has To Plan A Date
One classic flirty bet idea for couples is to make the loser plan the next date night.
This is also a great bet to make with your boyfriend because let’s be real, a lot of guys aren’t taking the lead when it comes to planning awesome dates.
So, wager on the outcome of something and have the loser plan the next date night or even weekend of dates and fun activities you can both enjoy.
2. Loser Sends A Scandalous Photo
If you want a flirty bet to make with your boyfriend over text, this idea is perfect!
Basically, wager on something and have the loser send a promiscuous photo over text or Snapchat.
You and your boyfriend might do this anyway, but it’s another fun bet over text idea to try out.
3. Winner Makes Plans For The Next Weekend
Like the date night idea, one other boyfriend bet idea you can try over text is to have the loser make plans for the next weekend.
This is another opportunity for couples to plan something fun and to spend some quality time together, so it’s a great bet to start with.
4. Loser Has To Clean The House
One common bet consequence is to have the loser handle chores.
So, if you and your boyfriend live together, one bet idea is to have the loser handle the next week of chores like cleaning the house or grocery shopping for the week.
5. Winner Picks A Bedroom Activity
One more bet to make with your boyfriend over text is to have the winner pick a fun bedroom activity they want to try.
Again, if you’re trying to spice things up in your relationship or have some fun, this is a great texting bet idea to try.
You can even couple this idea with one other texting bet, like having the loser plan a date night or weekend of activities.
The Best Bets To Make With Your Crush Over Text
Alright: maybe you’re not dating someone but you’re in the “talking phase” or have just started seeing someone.
Or, perhaps you just have a crush on someone you’re talking to and you’re trying to think of some bet ideas you can make to take things to the next level.
In this case, here are some bet ideas to make with your crush over text that you can try!
1. The “Coffee Date” Bet
A while back, I was actually using Hinge and Tinder and matched with a girl who seemed pretty cool.
We ended up playing a game of odds because her profile said she liked odds, and I asked her “what are the odds I can take you out for coffee.”
It was super corny and cringey honestly, but even when I lost the game of odds, she jokingly said I could still take her out for coffee.
You can use the same sort of idea when making a bet with your crush over text.
Basically, bet on something and propose that the “forfeit” is that you have to grab coffee together.
If your crush flat out says no, they don’t like you, so this is also a way to test the waters (fingers crossed for you!)

2. Loser Tells An Embarrassing Story
Another great bet you can make with your crush is to have the loser tell their most embarrassing story.
Just make a rule that it has to be a story the other person doesn’t know so you can learn something funny about one another!
3. Loser Makes Dinner
If you’re in the talking stage and have been on some dates, one great bet idea to make with your crush over text is to have the loser make the other person dinner.
This is basically an excuse to plan a nice date night, and bonus points if the other person is a great chef and you get a really nice dinner together as a result!
4. Winner Picks The Next Movie Night
Again, if you and your crush are in the talking stage and have been flirting, you can make a bet where the winner gets to plan the next movie night.
And I’m talking about picking the movie to watch and snacks, or that sort of stuff, not just picking to Netflix and chill.
5. Winner Gets Three Wishes
One final bet you can make with your crush via text or in-person is to give the winner of the bet three wishes.
This is a very open-ended bet idea, but that’s part of what makes it super fun and pretty flirty!

The Best Bets To Make With Your Friends Over Text
One final category of bets to do over text are bets you’d make with your friends.
Normally, these bets relate to partying and having a good time and aren’t flirty like boyfriend bet ideas or bets with your crush.
So, if you and your friend group want to have some fun, here are some bets to do with your friends over text that you can try!
1. Loser Has To Eat Or Drink Something
One classic bet you can make with your friends through text or in-person is to have the loser of the bet eat or drink something that the group decides.
I’ve actually participated in something like this when I played Kings Cup and other drinking games with friends over Zoom one time.
It’s fun, simple, yet effective, so give it a try!
2. Loser Has To DM Their Crush
Another great bet idea for friends that can be done over text is to have the loser slide into the DMs of their crush.
This is a particularly good bet idea if someone in the group hasn’t worked up the courage to message their crush yet and needs that helping push.
3. Loser Has To Buy Everyone A Round Next Time
To keep things simple, a bet idea for friends over text is to have the loser buy everyone a round or case of beer next time there’s a gathering.
This is a pretty common forfeit for losing fantasy football leagues or sports bets as well, and it’s a classic because it works.
4. Loser Has To Share A Secret
Like the embarrassing story idea, another bet idea for friends over text is to have the loser tell a secret no one knows.
Depending on how well you all know each other, this could be easier said than done.
But who knows: you might discover a spicy secret about someone in your friend group!
5. Loser Has To Host The Next Party
If you don’t have a dedicated host in your friend group, this bet idea is the perfect way to decide who hosts the next social event.
Just make sure you add a date into the bet so it actually happens!
I hope this list of bets to make over text gives you plenty of ideas the next time you feel like placing a friendly wager.
There are honestly so many bet ideas for boyfriends, crushes, and friends that you can try out.
Just keep things fun and harmless, and remember: the idea is to have a good time with friends, not to make anyone feel too embarrassed.
Best of luck with your bets!
