Being in a relationship is a beautiful experience, but sometimes it gets weird. Sometimes I just can’t stand my boyfriend’s behavior, often it is weird, but this time it was also disgusting! It happened to me a few months ago, and I’m finally over it, but unfortunately, I had to deal with it by myself. I wanted to know why my boyfriend farts in front of me and because there were not a lot of helpful tips and explanations all over the internet I decided to give you my explanation and tips on what you can do about it.
My boyfriend and I have been together for over 2 years, and we love each other very much. But he does one thing that drives me absolutely crazy – My boyfriend farts in front of me, without any apologies or shame, he just doesn’t care about it, which for me is totally nuts!
Once he told me that for him is not a big deal, so I can say that my boyfriend farts in front of me because he thinks that farting is nothing to be ashamed about especially if we are in a long-term relationship. This has a positive aspect because that means that my boyfriend feels confident and natural around me, and that is proof that our relationship has become stronger.
I would not be able to do that, and I have always been taught that when I have to fart then I have to go to the bathroom and do this without making it so obvious to the entire house!
It’s not like I don’t fart in front of him, too. We’re both human beings, and farting is a natural function of the digestive system. But for some reason, it feels so much worse when HE does it. Maybe it’s because I expect him to not be so obvious about farting. He’s my boyfriend and not just some random guy off the street.
Or maybe it’s because his farts smell worse than mine (Sorry babe I love you). Either way, it’s hard for me to accept and it often leads to arguments – even though we both know that ultimately, it’s not a big deal.
The Social Stigma Surrounding Farting
The social stigma surrounding farting is one that has been around for centuries. For some reason, society has deemed it inappropriate to let one rip in public. This is likely because of the embarrassment it can cause. However, there are many benefits to farting, such as relieving gas and bloating.
There are a few theories as to why society views farting as taboo. One theory is that it’s seen as disgusting and considered rude. Anothertheory is that it’s simply not something that people want to talk about in public. When my boyfriend farts he doesn’t see it as something rude, that’s why he doesn’t apologize too often for farting, and I’m slowly getting used to it…
When boyfriend farts he often says something about “holding back a fart is unhealthy” but is that really true? I’ve done some research about it.
Is Holding Back A Fart Unhealthy?
Unfortunately, after hours of research, I can easily say that holding back a fart is unhealthy for your body, it can lead to a few consequences. When gas accumulates in the intestines, it puts pressure on the stomach and can cause bloating and pain. Additionally, trapping gas can lead to an increase in colonic activity, which could contribute to bowel problems like constipation or diarrhea. So if you’re feeling bloated or in pain, it might be best to let that fart go. However, If you feel like I do about it then go to the closest bathroom and do this in private to not make other people mad at you.
How to Respond When Your Boyfriend Farts In Front of You?
I have been practicing it for many months and it has been good for our relationship, which means that instead of arguing about farting we started to make our bond stronger. When your boyfriend farts in front of you, it can be a bit embarrassing. Here are a few tips on how to respond when your boyfriend farts in front of you:
1. Try to laugh it off. If you can’t laugh about it, then pretend like it didn’t happen. Just act like everything is normal and move on. That’s what worked for me, and I’m slowly getting used to it as it gives us another funny situation to remember or talk about.
2. If you’re really bothered by it, then talk to your partner about it later when you’re both alone. Let them know that it bothers you and ask them to please try to hold it in next time, or that he should go to the bathroom before letting a fart.
