it's gross and in my prudish opinion a little disrespectful.

i went out on a double date with my old roomie and her guy and my boyfriend and her guy thought it was cool to fart at the table and we all thought he was an idiot

we were right

summer - i KNOW you're smarter than that! 4 weeks and he's doing every possible disgusting thing in front of her? he's probably severly lacking maturity

farts happen but they shouldn't be an event

Don't like it move on. Sounds like he is treating you as if you have been toghter for years. LOL
Wait until he asks you to pop one for him.LOL
Oh the fun of being with someone. LOL
All people have habits, each to there own.
Things have a time and a place though. Talk to him about it if you want. Sounds like a habit, and he wont change.

It's a bit much..(its made me giggle alot,though i guess you havent stop frowning)..let's see

He either feels comfortable with you...(if it does revolt you then tap his hand and say stop it..with a smile in your voice, a suggestion only if you feel comfortable? and at times when he's excessively doin so.)...OR>>Id say that he may of been on his own for quite a long time and may forget that his social habits have slackened over time and male oriented for far too long amonst his mates..

9 times outta 10 some men have always been oblivious, wait til he scratches his genitals and then shakes your parents hands when he meets them...they may just decide for you it's NOT goin to be an arranged marriage after all !


Heres one i made up guys and gals: 'The batchelor bogey'..: )

I was fascinated, perhaps even preoccupied, with flatulation. Then I turned 6.

I don't sweat the small stuff....although I may tease and joke with him about it...There are way bigger issues to be concerned about, and you need to pick your battles.

(Of course, if you aren't really into him yet, at this point, he just blew it, so he would be smart to hold off for awhile....)

What you need to do is be honest with him. Tell him in a nice way that him farting in front of you is not acceptable at this time. As time goes on you will feel comfortable with him that you yourself will be doing little things without realizing it. As for the zits part, you need to explain to him that popping them in front of you is not sexy and hopefully he will stop. Yes men do things that are grotesque but at 4wks into a relationship I would never do it. I've been married 15yrs and I still hate it when my wife comes in the bathroom when I'm sitting on the toilet. She doesnt have a problem if I walk in when she is doing it. We all become comfortable and do things when we are in our comfort zone. Just be sure to be polite when you explain this to him. If he is mature enough then he will understand and probably consider it when he needs to fart again.

Good Luck!!!!

Well, on the up side, he is comfortable with you. Maybe he is used to being in a long term relationship, and has gotten to this point in the past with other women, so is extra comfortable getting to this point with people, and comfortable just being himself. Yes, it can be gross anyway. Just talk to him about it if you feel like you want to stick around. If you are really disgusted already (even in what should be the "infatuation" time), then perhaps your attraction to him isn't that strong to start with, or maybe you two are just not a match in this regard. I think it's pretty normal though - getting to the point of farting in each other's presence. Hasn't it happened with any other boyfriends you've had? And some people fart more than others, so maybe you've just been lucky in the past.

Different people draw the line at different places. I would bring it up if you're in it for the long haul though.

I just broke up with one like that. Not only was he gross like you described but his personal hygiene was disgusting. I might have been able to put up with the lack of manners but not showering or washing up before trying to hug and kiss me just grossed me out.

I agree. This guy has no class.

My serious girlfriend of a few years ago and I dated for a year. I had a fart escape in her presence and I was mortified! (I'm usually an easygoing guy, but I was so smitten that I didn't want to come across as gross or gassy.) She was shocked but then laughed. It never happened again, though.

Anyway, a guy who spits and farts in front of you is no prize. He needs to learn how to act in front of a lady, and if he is convinced that there's nothing wrong with that, move on to someone with a bit more class.

Why are you asking strangers if you are offended by something. If its offensive to you then its offensive. You don't need peer pressure to know this guy is gross.

Again, we are not dating him; you are.

wow a fart. you might aswell stay single if someone that farts puts you off them. everybody farts, even women and have you ever smelt your pets farts, man they smell worse than anything anyways, if it bothers you that much just tell him and he might even go outside to have a fart but its only natural to let rip, no one can say they have never farted. well each to there own


Very interesting! I can see you're an expert on farts. It isn't often that one meet a person so knowledgeable on the subjet!

OK, so maybe the guy feels comfortable around you, and accidents do happen (ie: the occasional passing of gas) but the spitting (gross) and the zit popping (yuck) and the farting all the time? the guy is a disgusting pig! It isn't going to get better. Just like my ex who thought it was normal to use the bathroom in my bedroom and leave the door open. PLEASE, there are just some things I would rather not see, hear and SMELL!
So guys, do us a favor and with the exception of an occasional slip-which is nothing to be embarrassed about- keep your bodily functions to yourself. It may be a "guy thing" but it is not endearing to women.
