Be Random and Just Do It
Sometimes we overthink things. Will they like this? Is this the right time? Is this too much? Can they take off work? Sometimes we think ourselves out of a ROMANTIC thought and then its gone. Sometimes, just do yourself a favor and BE RANDOM! JUST DO IT!
If you've been dating someone for a while or married, you know what things your partner likes. If it comes to your mind and makes you smile, then most likely it will make them smile too. It never hurts to try something new to get the reaction you hope to get. It is also okay, to take a chance at doing something YOU have never done that you know they have been wanting to do. One of the best surprises, has been when someone takes me to a place they didn't particularly want to go but we had a ball together because we did it together. Sometimes we have to go outside our comfort zone to make new memories and it also shows the person that we are with that we are willing to try things they enjoy too. Its the unselfish act of doing something out your norm that can be ROMANTIC in itself.
Another way you can be random is to be SPONTANEOUS. If you and your mate are taking a ride, take the scenic route, stop on the side of the road, and enjoy the view together. You're on your way home from work, stop at the florist, pick your own bouquet of flowers (so you can say you did it yourself for extra points) and give them to your sweetheart when you get home. He's tired when he gets home from work, run a hot shower for him, give him a massage when he gets out, and whip him up his favorite meal while you hand him the remote. Being spontaneous is all about stealing the moment and going with it.
You can also be random by lowering your inhibitions. Do something unexpected, like running in the rain, going skinny dipping, wearing bright colors, or taking a helicopter ride in the park (and you've never flown before).
We hold back a lot from doing things because we are afraid people might think we are crazy or weird or embarrassed but you can lose out on some pretty amazing adventures if you are always worried about what Harry or Sally will think. You never know, they might just join you in the craziness like a flash mob.
Whatever the case, if something great and ROMANTIC pops in your head that you haven't done in a while or haven't done before, go for it and JUST DO IT. The only thing that can happen is that they don't like it and you just don't do it again but I am sure that if it pops in your head its something you have an idea they would love and or enjoy or both, so BE RANDOM and go for it!
Now if you do NOT really know the person you are dating or interested in, you might want to get to know them a little first before taking them to Mardi Gras or to see the Chip n Dales (pretty random). However, their are random things you can do that everyone enjoys like a delivery of Edible Errangements, a surprise lunch date, or text that says I'm thinking of you. You never know, your random act just might be the thing that really draws them in and catches their attention and lead to more ROMANCE for the two of you.
