OK, I love my SO (soon to be FI) and I want us to be comfortable around each other…BUT I don’t want things to get TOO comfortable…at least, not yet anyways! We aren’t even married yet!
So, here’s what’s irritating me a little bit: SO passes gas in front of me and doesn’t think twice about it. He just…let’s it rip. I’m sorry, but way to act like the perfect gentleman out in public and then let it ALLLL hang out in front of me. What if I just passed gas around him whenever I felt the urge? I’m sure THAT would be extremely appealing to him, right? Lol
Does your SO/FI/DH pass gas in front of you? Do you?
Do you feel that things have gotten TOO comfortable between you and your man, or not? If so, do you care? Did you talk with him about keeping things a little less “casual” between the two of you?
Looking for a little fellow Bee comraderie here lol

He does it all the time. Sometimes he asks me to “pull his finger”… no biggie. We do sometimes have burping contests, so I guess we’ve passed the point of being too comfortable!

We’ve been “too comfortable” for a long time, and it doesn’t bother me one bit! I’d rather be my true self with him than anyone else. And its kind of funny when you are in public and one of you leans into the other and whispers in your ear that they have to poop! haha 🙂

Most guys don’t think twice about passing gas or their girl passing gas in front of them. I wouldn;t have issue with it. But then again DH and I will talk to each in the bathroom too. So there really is no hiding anything with us.

We’re very comfortable around each other, but DH then forgets when we’re in public and will burp or fart when we’re out and about and it makes me want to crawl under a rock. I hate it!!!!!! He tries hard not to, but honestly, he gets in his little head bubble and forgets where he is. Ugh.
Honestly, at home, if we’re going to pass gas, fine, whatever. My “line” is that we’re not allowed to use the bathroom in front of each other. I don’t want him to see me on the toilet, and I don’t want to see him. The only time I’ve ever broken that rule was when I was violently ill and thought I was about to die, he was allowed in the bathroom. LOL!

I often wonder the same thing. Especially when he passes gas in front of me (and then casually blames the dog). Now that we live together, I find it tougher to be “not too comfortable” with each other. But bat the same time, you want to be comfortable in your own house!! Its a real balance.
One thing that would bug me is that when we first started dating there was that excitement to get ready and see his look when I walked outside or got to his door. Now living together, the boyfriend sees me get ready every day! It takes the “fun” out of it, especially on special occasions. So whenever we’re going on a “date”, I make him get ready first and wait in hte living room until I’m ready. Its a really small thing, but I think it keeps the “excitement” alive.
And we have a no farting in the bedroom rule;)

I think he waited 2 dates before he started letting em rip in front of me. I waited a few more 😉

If you ask me, it’s rude to belch or pass gas in front of anyone. It’s ok if it just “slips out,” but you should say “excuse me.”

There is a strict rule in our house – that is not allowed to happen. Any bodily functions are just a no go.
And girls don’t have the ability to do that anyway, right?

@NVACat: What a great idea! SO and I are waiting to live together until we are married. But I like this rule! It would definitely keep the excitement alive 🙂

@bigcitybee: That day was when I knew he truly loved me, LOL! I’m still a little scarred from having him in there with me, but I had no other options.
@helenberrycrunch: Totally agree. I even say excuse me if I’m alone! It’s just habit, LOL! Plus I wouldn’t want to be rude to the cats 😉

Meh, that stuff doesn’t bother me. It’s like girls that pretend they don’t poop to keep the mystery alive. Newsflash: he knows and is probably laughing at your attempts to cover it up. :p It takes time for some people to be comfortable with that stuff, but just remember that it’s natural body functions.
@bakerella: We have the exact same line we don’t cross!

Loving everyone’s responses! Thanks for chiming in!

@bakerella: I totally feel you! I had foot surgery and was violently ill and literally couldn’t get in there without his help… it still traumitizes me to think about!
I even yell at the cats and dog if they sneak in there while I’m in there
