Unfortunately, being female does not exempt us from this little necessary evil 😛
I was thinking about relationships the other day, and about some of the things that are different in the beginning, but slowly change over the course of time & when you become more comfortable with your SO. I have a friend who says “Girls don’t fart” and she refuses to do it or even ACKNOWLEDGE it in front of her boyfriend lol.
I didn’t fart in front of my (now) husband until about 2 months before we were married!
How do you other bees feel about doing this (or other gross habits) in front of your man?

If I know I need to toot I’ll always sneak away… but I guess I have in front of him a few times when it snuck up on me! LOL!!
I still feel really embarassed when it happens in front of him and we’ve been together almost 5 years/living together over 2 years.
I do burp in front of him if I need to though.

he started farting in front of me just a few weeks (like two) into our relationship. not one to like double standards amongst the sexes, i started soon after…heh. so we almost never hid it.

Hahahaha, eh, no way. I feel like it would open the flood gates for him to start doing it in front of me, and I’ve smelled those things before, me no likey. 😛

No, no. I agree with laylabelle—don’t want to encourage him.

There is something to be said for privacy in a relationship… lol. I don’t leave the door open when I pee either. 🙂

Nope, no way for me. I’m far from a prude but for some reason this annoys the heck out of me. He knows how I feel and will sneak into the bathroom which I appreciate. I don’t know why but I look at it as more of a “good manners” issue. His family however… don’t get me started. I have heard every single one of his siblings/parents fart on many occasions, including his Mom and I HATE it! Just last week his sister (who is 27, not 7) farted at the table as we were eating dessert. I wanted to stab her with my fork. The only thing is it makes me appreciate his making an effort for me all that much more.

We are totally open about everything and farting is one of them – we have seen eachother with food poisoning and the flu etc and so farting is the least of it!

I normally don’t. I dated my daughters dad (the co-parent) for 5 years and didn’t until we were almost broke up. My poor FI on the other hand it a completely different subject but only because he would make such a huge deal about how girls shouldn’t fart and blah blah blah. He says we “fluff” well one day we are laying on the couch and he held me down and put the blanket over my head and let one rip and then decided to fart in my little girls face when they are wrestling around. Well I informed him I would get him back for all of that. So about 6 months later he was holding me down, I am highly claustrophobic, so I told him to get off or I would fart on him. He didn’t do it so I did =) evil I know but I was raised with a lot of brothers and male cousins. He is still to this day HIGHLY appalled by it and hates it but I can never help but to bust out in laughter because its so funny.
My step-mom and dad have been married almost 20 years and she has NEVER “fluffed” in front of him though.

We don’t hide it at all. I’m actually very lady like and girly… lol. But that’s one thing that I don’t hold in around him. If I hold it, it causes me bad pains, so I don’t bother around him. We’re completely open about EVERYTHING, that included.

@ pretty – Yeah, I’m still kind of embarrassed about it too, but I don’t really try to hide it anymore, unless I KNOW it’s going to be super smelly LOL.
@ vegan – hahah – way to go! No double standards from the beginning 🙂
@ Layla, gem & grace – Wow! Your men don’t fart in front of you? Lucky! LOL.
@ Corgi – I don’t leave the bathroom door open either! Thankfully neither does he.
@ Future – Yeah, once you’ve seen/experienced certain things in a relationship, passing gas pales in comparison 😛
@ shannon – “fluff”! That’s hilarious! And ewwww…so gross on being trapped under the covers and being farted on!!!

It took a long time before either of us farted in front of the other. Then one time he accidentally farted in front of me…one of those that yes can be described as “fluff” cuz it sounded like that (sorry tmi). After that we’ve been less hiden. But we are trying to not do it that often because it really starts to make us feel like goofy roommates instead of loooovaas (um that was my poor snl imitation…haha).

no way!!! i’m like that with everyone though! FI doesn’t either. We are both pretty private about stuff like that. We def don’t pee in front of each other either!!
the only time i did by accident because i was seriously laughing so hard ..he laughed it off but that didn’t open any gates by any means for either of us. We’ve been together for 11 years too so i don’t think it’ll change anytime soon.
