Jessa-fy my relationship
December 29, 2013 5:44 AM Subscribe
What fun, romantic, slightly edgy things could I do with my boyfriend?
Things are really good between the two of us, and we are not particularly "edgy" people. He is extremely sweet and actually a bit of an introvert. But we often joke that deep down inside, he has a part of him that wants to be wild and carefree, and flirt with danger. We refer to this as his "inner Jessa" after the obnoxious character on the series Girls
who lives for the thrills and doesn't care what people think.
What surprises could I spring on him that will appeal to his inner Jessa? What have you done for your boyfriend/girlfriend along these lines? It should be something fun, unconventional and maybe slightly transgressing society's accepted boundaries.

Ideas I had so far:
1. Wake him up at 7am, wrap him up warm, book a taxi and take him to this multi-storey carpark with an amazing view from the top, and watch the sun rise over the city with a hot drink. We will have to charm the security guard into letting us go up there but I think it's doable (and that totally adds to the Jessa-ness).
2. Dress the two of us up smart and go to a fancy reception where we don't know anyone, get drunk off the free wine, convince people that we are important diplomats, cause some mild trouble.
Note: I do realise it's kind of lame to plan this kind of faux-spontaneous fun, but I don't know, this is something he has hinted he would enjoy. I'm not really up for anything that could actually get us in trouble or hurt anyone. We don't have cars, or much money to spend, but slightly splashing out (for example, the taxi to the car park) would still be very much in the Jessa spirit of things.
