Don’t sweat it if your first kiss wasn’t something to brag about. Most of us aren’t happy with the way our first boyfriends treated us. Luckily, there are plenty of other types of kisses for you to look forward to (and other guys, as well) to in the future. If they’re not already on your bucket list, they should be now.

  1. The midair kiss. You haven’t seen your man in weeks, so you two have been missing each other like crazy. That’s why you run toward him and let him lift you up off of the ground when you reunite. While you’re in the air, he’ll kiss you and squeeze you like there’s no tomorrow.
  2. Kissing in the rain. This type of kiss is in practically every romantic comedy, which is why we’ve all had the urge to try it. Of course, in real life, it’s not all that glamorous, because your hair will get messy and your makeup will fade — but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth trying.
  3. Kissing on a ferris wheel. Even though they’re cheap and corny, there’s something romantic about carnivals. That’s why you should take your man on the ferris wheel and kiss him on the top of it. Then you can let him win you that teddy bear you’ve been telling him about.
  4. Kissing in front of a crowd. This one’s a little unrealistic, but if you can get a kiss in front of a cheering crowd, you’ll feel like a celebrity. You might have to wait until you get engaged in front of your family or have your face plastered on a Kiss Cam, but it’ll all be worth it.
  5. The wedding kiss. This is the ultimate kiss. After all, it can only be given to you by the love of your life, and what’s more special than that? Plus, you’ll be in front of a room full of people who love you just as much as that man does. The feeling will be overwhelming.
  6. The argumentative kiss. Maybe you’re fighting with your boyfriend. Maybe you’re arguing with a complete stranger. It doesn’t matter who it is. All that matters is that in the middle of the fight, he’ll lean in and give you an unexpected kiss. The quick transition from anger to lust will drive you nuts.
  7. The dancing kiss. This kiss occurs when you’re slow dancing with your partner. All of a sudden, he’ll dip you and kiss you while you’re down there. What’s more romantic than that?
  8. The underwater kiss. The next time you’re in the pool with your partner, go underwater at the same time and press your lips together. Then you can say that you’ve kissed on land and in water.
  9. The selfie kiss. If your kisses aren’t documented, what’s the point? That’s why you need to take the perfect selfie kiss with your boyfriend. You need to find an angle that’ll make both of you look attractive, even though you won’t be able to look at the camera. It’ll take you a few tries to get it right, but that just means you have more time to kiss.
  10. The spaghetti kiss. You have Lady and the Tramp to thank for this kiss. Of course, since eating spaghetti together might be a little messier than Disney made it look, you might want to swap it out for another meal. It’ll be just as romantic to share a piece of candy.
