We were heading out for dinner and as I got out of the car it just slipped out.
It wasn't quiet.

I am mortified.

We laughed but I was so embarrassed.

Please tell me these things happen .

How new? shock

Well, that's that out of the way pretty quickly! You've just moved things on a little quicker than usual, that's all. wink

We all fart. Fact of life. I know ho we mortifying it can be, in front of other people. But at the same time, we all do it!

Emz449 Sun 07-Feb-16 22:49:24

grin all the time! The first time my boyfriend did I laughed so much I had tears streaming down my face. Wasn't so much the action, it was the look of mortification and the slow turning of his head to see if I noticed!

Was it a wet one?

Did it smell?

If no to the above, you're fine. I think us ladies way overthink the whole farting infront of a new boyfriend situation.

RudeElf Sun 07-Feb-16 22:51:42

Well thats it out of the way now! grin

Haha! It happens.

I remeber when me and DP had been dating a while and decided it was time to be "intimate" shag we had booked a hotel,did the deed then dp botked to the toilet, he had suddenly come down with the D of DandV he was mortified grin .

Crikey. I'd be so embarrassed. I've managed 17 years so far...

I never fart in front of partners even when I've been with them for years. I don't even do it in front of my children! It's all to do with my repressed upbringing. But I think it would be very shallow of him to be bothered by such a thing.

I fart in front of DH all the time.

Oddly I think he thinks it's cute.

Though I can't attest to his mental health (and certainly not my own!)

LemurFingers Sun 07-Feb-16 23:05:47

DP says I fart loads in my sleep

Oh honestly... don't worry! Fast foward a few years from now and he might be the one trying to shove the gas and air in your face as you give birth. Farting will be the very least of your problems then.

If it makes you feel better OP, after I gave birth to DC3, my God I couldn't stop letting rip. It was dreadful! And the midwife's there stitching me up and I'm just blowing trumpets in her face. It was truly humiliating- which is saying something because you can't really top childbirth. It all kicks off. But it was just the relentless farting in this poor woman's face. On those grounds alone I thought, "I can never have another child and risk meeting this midwife again."

Another time I had to have a surgery and I knew it before they put me under that I was windy. I'd made the dire mistake of having a curry the night before and I'm laying there in the hospital, waiting my turn to see the anaesthetist and I'm thinking, "I'm going to blow holes through the surgeon's gown, I'm so farty!" Anyway, I'm finished with the op, coming to, out of the 'fog' and back into reality when I hear the surgeon say, "This one was a bit windy." I turned to his colleague and asked, "Did I just hear what I thought I heard? Oh my God was I farting during the surgery?" To which she replied, "Don't worry dear. You'll never see any of us again."

There's something just so embarrassing about farting.
But as another poster put it... you got that out of the way! Next stop: D and V (which I had the night before our wedding and into our wedding day. Nice).

Farts never deter true love. smile

It's not the worst thing that will happen if you end up having a baby / getting married. He will see a lot worse then.
If he can't accept a natural body function, he has led a very sheltered life. wink

TheFormidableMrsC Sun 07-Feb-16 23:09:02

Falling about at the posts on here grin. OP, just accept you are now on farting terms. Progress!

Rainbowlou1 Sun 07-Feb-16 23:11:25

I wish I could be that relaxed...we have been together for 12 years and he has never heard that from me...though I don't think that's necessarily a good thing!
If you both laughed don't worry-you have got it over with early days so now things can get nice and comfortable!!

DixieNormas Sun 07-Feb-16 23:13:41

Bloody hell I never farther in front of people, I wish I could just let it go!

DixieNormas Sun 07-Feb-16 23:15:53

farther? fart

RJnomore1 Sun 07-Feb-16 23:15:57

How on earth do you manage 12/17 years? Do you dash out the room when it needs to happen?


hownottofuckup Sun 07-Feb-16 23:16:19

Hahaha Vocational that's hilarious!

MadamCroquette Sun 07-Feb-16 23:18:38

For you OP smile

wedding fart

ladymariner Sun 07-Feb-16 23:19:12

I knew now-dh was the one when, after our first shag when we were lying in each others arms and being all loving and romantic, I sneezed and farted at the same time.....I wanted to curl up and die, but he fell about laughing and asked me if that was my party piece!! I loved him from that moment on, 26 years ago and counting grin

Ploppymoodypants Sun 07-Feb-16 23:21:11

Well I farted on our first date. Loudly and no hiding what it was. Been together 10 years now so it didn't put him off. It's now one of our 'funny getting together stories' grin

WelliesTheyAreWonderful Sun 07-Feb-16 23:21:43

OP you have nothing to worry about - he knows you fart and so does he! However when I was 21 (paused here to think about name changing but really CBA) I fell through blush in a shopping centre with my then DP. I had to stand stock still while he went to buy me new trousers then waddle to the toilet. I repeat - you have nothing to worry about!
