have a random button, but you can choose the year but the day and month are random.
its can just be a surprise email to your future self.
We launched a flavor of this today. If you have set your birthday, then you can choose a random day and age combo – i.e. “send me a letter when I’m 50 on a random date that year” – check out the screenshot on this tweet: https://twitter.com/futureme/status/1284268547481448450 or better yet – go use the feature yourself!

Yeah, & let user choose which part of date we want fixed, & which one random. Like 2030 any day, or Any April, or any 23rd of any month in 2043.
And make sure that we don't get to see the date even after the letter is sent.

Please! I needed to attempt to click an unknown month and day while covering it up with my hands. It was a pain! I want it to be a surprise, but even if I sent it a million years in the future I would probably still remember it!
Random is an awesome idea!

We have random button: http://www.to-be.today and few new functions more for sending a letter to the future. Welcome! Try it!
And in the part where it displays where all your letters are it could say the upcoming date that it will be recieved on will just be the year. and you can customize certain parts... like you can have it be in the year 2017 and the month of may, but the day is randomized. or on april 19th, any year. and you can select a certain period to send it, like from october 14th 2019 to may 17th 2020.
I really like this idea.
why is this so genius
This way you will never know when to expect your letter. So when it arrives you will not be expecting it and it will add a whole new edge of surprise to the whole concept of FutureMe.
It could be awesome! Because sometimes I ask my friend to put something in, 'cause I want a random date (:
that would be pretty cool
I agree a random date generator would be great, I am doing this using Excel at the moment but having it on the site would be fantastic.
Keep up the good work
