5 Guys You Should Have Fun With Before Marriage

flirting with a fling
You haven't lived until you've bagged, er, "had a fling" with 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-with-stranger-existence 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 sakes 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.
