The Risky Release Party Continues with Robin Bielman and Charlene Sands

Both of us were lucky enough to marry our high school sweetheart. And both our guys are adventurous. So when it comes to dates—and between us there have been thousands—we figure we might have some expertise. 

Top 15 “Worth The Risk” Dates:

1. Swim with sharks. (Kidding. We just had to throw that in there.)

2. Spend the day at an amusement park and ride the rollercoasters. We realize this may cause some wooziness, but then you get to lay your head on your honey’s shoulder and lean into him (or her) while you walk around.

3. Take a hike. The less travelled path, the better. There are more opportunities to get frisky that way.

4. Go to the multi-plex movie theater spontaneously and watch the movie that’s playing right now. You may be pleasantly surprised.

5. Take a surfing lesson. It doesn’t matter if you stand up or not, the fun you’ll have trying will translate to fun when the lesson is over.

6. Eat dinner at a tiny little dive. The kind where you imagine the line is usually out the door and you have to stand to eat.

7. Go hot air ballooning. Okay, so neither of us has done this one, but we really want to!

8. Swim in a freezing cold body of water. Bonus points if there’s a waterfall. Just think how much fun you’ll have warming up afterward.

9. Rent a scary movie and curl up on the couch to watch it. In the dark. When you cling to your guy out of fear, he’ll be oh so willing to create different kinds of tingles.

10. Dive. Scuba or sky. We’ve only done one of these, but the other is on our bucket list. (Okay, it’s only on Robin’s.)

11. Park the car. View. No view. Doesn’t matter. Your eyes should only be on each other. Proceed at your own comfortable heat level.

12. Ride a horse and a cowboy (just kidding!) preferably on the beach, but mountain trail rides are very romantic too.

13. Wine taste at a local winery and enjoy the ambience or if you’re not in grape country, have a wine tasting party for two at home.

14. Kiss a frog…you never know, he may turn into your prince.

15. Read a Romance … together!! (it can lead to great things!)

Any date that is simple, lovely and meaningful is special for me. having a hectic life which allows precious time together is a walk in the mountains, a coffee at a cafe or chatting in the backyard. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

What a lovely post. Ideas which are all appealing and unique. I treasure any of the mentioned list and travel is another one. elliotbencan(at)hotmail(dot)com

Hi Charlene! I did everything except post a review on Monday, so didn't do any of that today.

I loved your list of 15 things. I can identify with quite a few of them. I don't really care what my DH and I do as long as we are together and are law abiding.

Nice date ideas. Don't have any like these.

Great ideas and hopefully that someone is worth the risk. :) I think the riskiest part of the date for me was "the Date" himself. lol
Great party.
