If you wish to kick things into full swing in your relationship, why not try something on the adventurous spectrum of things this Valentine's Day. It's the ideal way to add some spontaneity and should help kick things into high gear in your couple. Now is the time to ditch the safe bet date ideas and risk living large, if you truly think the relationship can go the distance, what could be better than taking the road less travelled together. Here’s what you can do:
Take the leap of faith, both metaphorically and physically, in your relationship and skydive with your boo. Is there any better way to profess your love and faith in each other than by jumping off a plane together? We think not. Book tandem skydives together from the Palm and get ready to be totally vulnerable in front of each other as you scream your lungs off. It doesn't get more romantic than that.
