1. “sometimes u just have to test the waters with a little poot (ya know, a girl fart if u will). if he’s cool with it, then u know it’s time to unleash the kraken.”

2. “Whenever you feel comfortable enough. But, let him make the first fart or he’ll never let you live it down.”

3. “Never! I have been married to my husband for 16 years. I have never. I had my kids by c-section, and I was very gassy for a few days. I would ask him to leave the room. I would tell him, I needed a drink or something so he would leave.

4. “Keep it old school. Ladies first.”

5. “When you both no longer care.”

6. “The first time you pull out!”

7. “You need honesty in a good relationship, and farting is about as honest as you can get! Do it asap!”

8. “If you can’t comfortably fart in front of each other and have a great laugh, you should not even be in a relationship.”

9. “I like a little mystery, farting is for coworkers only.”

10. “If the guy really likes you, he will accept if you fart in front of him anytime. Sooner or later, he will find out. So what the heck?”

11. “Right away. Get it over with so that you know what you’re dealing with. It would make an awesome initial greeting!”

12. “A few weeks for the guy and a few months for the lady.”

13. “Dealing with someone else’s asshole is like dealing with someone’s bad day, if you can’t take it don’t bother trying to make it.”

14. “If it’s a guy you don’t like & want get rid of just let’em rip. But some guys really like a gassy girl.”

15. “Never. And none of that peeing with the door open nonsense either.”

16. “Omg just let it rip everyone does it lol ffffrrrraaaaappppppppp 💩 lol”

17. “I’m not opposed to farting in front of a guy I like, I just don’t in general go out of my way to fart in front of other people. I try to leave the space/room. With that said, it is normal to fart so if one squeaks out, I would totally be fine with it.”

18. “My husband and I have been married 20 years and it hasn’t happened….we refuse. Maybe when I’m in my 60s and just don’t give a damn 🤣”

24. “Was dating him for a few months at the time. Stayed the night at his house. Both of us dead asleep. He ripped it so loud it scared me awake 😂 I did all I could not to laugh so loud that it would wake him. Hiding it from one another was history the next morning.”

25. “Day one. Especially if you’re already in bed together. Night farts are real.”

26. “Maybe 10 yrs in…… but the real answer is NEVER.”

27. “If you fart – chances are he’ll laugh. If he doesn’t, time for a new boyfriend.”

28. “It is a natural body function. I try my best not to but eventually it happens. For instance one time we were dead in the middle of coitus when the alarm bell rang…..I died of embarrassment he laughed and got on with it. We ended four years laterbut its a funny story.”

29. “First date. Stop tryna do this fake shit. Be real. If your date didnt like it, then he or she aint good for you. You want somebody you can be comfortable with. Say like “hey excuse me i gotta go outside imma just let go of this gas ive been holding for a hot minute. Brb. Dont want you to smell it.”

30. “First date, get that shit out the way instead of dragging it out. If it’s meant to be, they won’t give a damn.” Thought Catalog Logo Mark
