You Have To Date Your BF For This Long Before Farting In Front Of Him, Science Says

by Candice Jalili

I'm a firm believer that farting in front of your partner is a relationship milestone right up there with your first kiss and your first "I love you."

It's the moment you say to your partner, "I'm going to let you see the grossest, smelliest side of me... and I still trust that you will love me." THAT'S HUGE.

So... how long do you wait until it's appropriate for you to have such a HUGE milestone in your relationship? In a survey of over 2,000 people, Sapio — a dating app — sought to find out just that... and much, much more.

The subjects in the survey were pretty comprehensive, ranging from your first shower together all the way to moving in together.

And the findings show most people think it's totally chill for you to fart in front of your partner after three to six months of dating. Cause, like, IT IS.


But to my surprise, farting in front of your partner is supposed to come before saying "I love you." (Survey findings showed people agreed you have to hold off on dropping the L bomb until you've been together for six months to a year.)

Personally, I feel like you wouldn't want to fart in front of your partner until you KNEW they loved you enough to not be totally disgusted by your butt.

But, then again, maybe you love them because you're like, "I farted in front of them and they STILL stuck around and found me adorable."

Kissing your partner when they're sick after three to six months of dating also sounded pretty nuts to me. How about we just don't put our health at risk by not kissing our sick partners ever?!

It's also worth noting that 30 percent of the people in this survey think it's never OK to have period sex. But I'd just like to highlight the fact that this means 70 percent of people are down to part the red seas. That's a LOT of people.

Everything else seemed pretty good for my standards.

But what are some things we can never do in front of our partners, according to the survey findings? Sapio looked into that too.

Check it out for yourself:


All right, I'm all for never pooping in front of your partner and not blowing your nose in the bedsheets. (Is that even a thing people do? Ew.) But how are you supposed to completely avoid morning breath?? Just, like, never wake up??

Also, I think everyone picks their noses and it's time society just EMBRACED IT.

But I guess that's just me.
