You haven't lived until you've bagged these guys.

Men aren't the only ones who bid adieu to skirt-chasing and shed a semi-sweet blubber after saying "I do."

On the contrary, actually. While women are often given the bum rap of baby-starved, ring-happy harpies, we've known many a lady to mournfully watch the last of her one night stand chances with a stranger disappear with the backwash of her wedding champagne. Yes, we have.

While a life of bed hopping isn’t something to, uh, aspire to necessarily, but casual dalliances, like youth, won't be at your disposal forever. So you might as well slip on those proverbial heels and squeeze out the most unique shape you can, while you still can.

So for god's sake, try to spice it up a bit!

Here's a list of five guys you should fling it with before taking the plunge. And if you've already plowed your way through all of these? Bravo!

1. The foreign guy.

There's something vaguely romantic —OK, OK — hot, about being romanced (or whatever you want to call it) by a man who isn't drenched in Americana. The less corn-fed United States transplant the better. Does he speak fluent English? Minus ten points. Just a few fragmented (albeit sexy) sentences here or there? Atta girl! Try to find one who doesn't believe chivalry is dead, and wants to wash away all that ingrained American puritanical guilt with an espresso shot and wink (but doesn't view you as his one trick pony slut bag, either. It's a fine line, reader, but we have faith in you).

2. The bartender.

Not just any bartender, but the one you spontaneously met one rainy lemon drop shot night (when you were only supposed to have one) and found yourself wondering why you never noticed how funny the words "Last Call" sound.  Yeah. That bartender. No it isn't being slutty, but rather a fair barter for free booze. (We at YourTango don't endorse binge drinking or prostitution for alcohol.)

3. The guy in the band you just watched.

No, not the guy in the band you know, silly. But the mysterious owner of those rhythmic strumming hands or the brilliant DJ mind with the acumen to play your favorite Faint with vintage Ladytron (or whatever). Try to score an awesome mix tape as a relic, or rob his i-Tunes. And work the "I'm with the band" motto at least once. Wear a glam rock jacket. OK, we're done.

4. The super, duper, crazy successful guy.

You know the type. The ones who somehow glided into adulthood, made all the right decisions, deals, dollars and now bathes in Evian. The man who thinks living in a one-bedroom apartment is "roughing it" and wouldn't dream of going spring clothes shopping at underrated boutiques like Target. No, not the trust funder (that's no fun) but rather the self-made Big Shot who believes in Projecting An Image Of Success At All Times. Yes, him. Keep your snarks to yourself and eat your fancy dinner.

5. The guy you'd never be into. Ever.

Sure he's cute and charming (or at least not ugly), but he isn't your thing. Never will be. The conversation follows a rocky, jumbled, mismatched path but his hipbones are doing mysterious things to you. Oh, loosen up and give him a shot. You only live once.
