Happy TMI Tuesday!
So...here's a question I've been meaning to ask - when you're dating someone, how long should you be going out before you can pee with the door open?
Yes, it's TMI Tuesday!
You know what I mean - when do you let your unladylike, or un-gentlemanly behavior surface?
For example, I will probably burst a blood vessel before I pass gas in front of a man. ANY man - especially the one I'm dating.
I run water when I pee so he won't hear it. And the door is definitely closed!
Y'all know what I'm talking about - start this clip at 1:14:
But then you get comfortable. He thinks you're cute and ignores your snoring. You think he's adorable, so you overlook the fact that he chews his food like a cow. You're in that stage where you can let it go (no pun intended....well...kinda intended).
But when do we get to that stage? Three months? Six months? A year? Never?
I've dated guys who farted in my presence on our first date. And while they said "excuse me," I was still taken back. My first reaction was, "Dude, we ain't cool like that yet." But he did it like it was nothing - I think he almost took pride in busting a good one. I just tried to forget it...while holding my breath of course.
I remember the first time I passed gas in front of a guy. I was mortified. He barely noticed. When he asked me why I was turning red, I said, "Because I passed gas." (I figured I should warn him in case it was a deadly one). He was like, "awww, how cute."
Men that I've dated fart in front of me all the time. And they do it fairly early in the dating stage too. And it's not like they're silent but deadly ones, or it just snuck up on them and slipped out. They dug in deep for it and let it rip! When I look surprised or say, "uh..excuse me," they say, "What? Everyone does it." Meanwhile, I'm passed out on the floor somewhere.
I understand everyone does it. Of course we do. But if I let it go, even a sneaky one, a dude would look at me like I'm crazy. While he's just "being a man," I'd be considered a nasty heffa!
Why are women the ones who have to be ladylike all the time when it comes to those things? Men can belch, burp, fart, scratch and grab all they want - while women have to hold it in, let it stay stuck or let it itch? And if we ARE allowed to just hang loose, when is it safe to do that?
I'm sure it's all relative, and each relationship is different, but if it were up to me, a man would NEVER see me do ANY of that stuff if I can help it. Some things should just remain a mystery.
Men, tell me...is it a turn-off if a woman passes gas or belches in front of you too soon - if at all? Or would you rather see this side of her early just to get it over with and see if you can stomach it?
Ladies, same question...are you turned off by caveman behavior displayed too early? Do you expect your man to get to know you better and get further along in your relationship before he stands there peeing with the door open?
Any horror stories? Come on y'all...it's TMI Tuesday, and I can't be the only one spilling the beans all the time :-) Let's go!
