Spontaneous Activities for Couples

Some couples that love spontaneous activities may enjoy sitting on a blanket in the moonlight with a cup of hot cocoa. However, some couples may find that activity, non-active and would rather choose to go dancing together. The success of the spontaneous activity is directly related to the desires of those doing it. Be open to new experiences. The key to spontaneous activities is to jump right in there and give them a try.

Picnics are romantic activities for couples of any age who live within any location. The key to a successful spontaneous picnic is not to make it too complicated. If you enjoy picnics, you may want to invest in a wicker picnic basket to be prepared ahead of time. If you don't own one, a lightweight mini-cooler with a shoulder strap will do the trick. Just grab a comfy blanket, a couple of water bottles, some fruit, cheese or your favourite finger-food snacks and head out to a park, forest glade, rooftop, riverside, beach, back deck or living room floor by candlelight.

Couples need play time. Co-op games that allow the couple to escape into another realm together is always a hit for gaming couples. Consider games such as Left for Dead 2, Fable, Baulder's Gate: Dark Alliance, Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 2 or Gears of War, to name a few. Board games are also a hit. Consider playing a spontaneous game of Chess, Scrabble, Backgammon or Yahtzee. Outdoor games such as tennis, frisbee, golf or mini-golf, for example, can be relaxing, playful and romantic experiences all rolled into one.

Gardening is a quiet, restful activity to do together. Gardening can be spontaneous when you keep it simple and on a smaller scale. Plant a bonsai tree or an herb garden together for your kitchen window sill. Plant a houseplant together in an attractive container and place it in your bedroom. Houseplants not only produce oxygen, but many of them work within your home to remove household mould molecules and contaminants.

Pull out the camera and snap photos of each other doing normal things. Don't be afraid to be as serious or silly as you feel led to be. Remain in the habit of keeping a camera in the car or using your camera option on your cell phone to allow you to use the spontaneous moment more effectively.

Pet Store

Pets are serious responsibilities, but pets are also fun to purchase spontaneously in a romantic whimsy while strolling through a pet store. Pet stores are alluring places to promote an atmosphere of growth in the relationship. It is the perfect place to learn about your partner. Is he a dog person or a gerbil lover? Consider a small saltwater tank for two seahorses or a small fish bowl for two fish. Purchasing a "couple" that you feel connects to the relationship, now gives the human couple two "someones" to share the love with.
