  1. Hahaha. I've had my boyfriend walk in and out the bathroom while I pooped in the toilet. And held eye contact through the "plop" just to laugh about it.

  2. My boyfriend frequently talks about his monstrous poops and gives me nearly real time updates when he's at work. I don't uh.. flaunt my shit stories quite like that, but his attitude makes pooping in the same bathroom not an issue. I wouldn't bother living with a guy if he was put off by the idea of "knowing" his girlfriend poops. If the smell makes you uncomfortable, keep an air freshener in there.

  3. As a very poop-shy person, sometimes I turn on the shower while i'm doing it so I can do it in peace. If I'm asked what I was doing afterwards cause' I obviously didn't take a shower I just say I was washing my feet or something.. haha

    1. This is a giant waste of water. Get over yourself.

  4. Honestly, after the first time she hears one of your violent diarrhea session, everything else is ok.

  5. Wrote a large reply to this, it was great, but when I hit publish it didn't post.

    tl;dr fart more, text more, and talk from the toilet more. When you've become comfortable with farting and talking about it, perhaps you have to go when she is in the shower.. just do it. It's great because the noise covers the sound. Once you get used to that, boom, you're set.

  7. you probably shouldn't be living with your SO if you're not comfortable enough with them to have to know you poop sometimes. Everybody poops.

  8. Everyone poops. My SO and I don't literally poop in front of each other, but we do talk about it, i.e. 'wow, that was a huge shit'.

  9. Well I typically go to the bathroom, close and lock the door, put the seat down, sit, and shit. When I'm done pooping I wipe up, flush, wash my hands, unlock the door, and leave the bathroom.

  10. Or you know, start with something smaller like peeing in front of each other first. Once that's set pooing is the natural next step.
    Also just poo when you take a shower, then you don't get questioned for why you were in there for so long and there's time after for the smell to dissipate.

  11. Me and my ex SO were very comfortable with that stuff but it all started with an accidental fart when he tried to dip me while dancing. Everyone poops so even though you may not want to physically see it all the time you need to be comfortable with doing it normally. This will make you more comfortable in other aspects of your relationship..probably.

    ...Is it weird that he still tells me about it? :s

    1. My boyfriend snapchats me pictures of his feet in the bathroom almost every time he poops.

    2. 11.a, but he is still your boyfriend, not your ex?

  12. I ask for a blumpkin from them. When they refuse I tell them fine I will have a shit anyways. Problem solved.

  13. Sometimes I show my bf my poop because he's amazed that it can be so massive.

  14. I crap and piss with the door open most of the time, so my girlfriend does get to see me do those deeds.

  15. I have been living with my girlfriend for 2 and a half years now. There was, and is, no awkwardness about pooping in the bathroom. There would be awkwardness about pooping elsewhere in our house or apartment ... but since you specified in the bathroom, our main strategy is to close the door. She is taking Microbiology while I am taking Bioinformatics; with our Biology education we understand that as humans we must poop.

    Everybody poops. Emma Watson probably has some big shits once in a while, so does Jennifer Lawrence, as well as Brad Pitt. They all stink and they're not always solid. The quicker you get over this irrational discomfort, the sooner you can focus on more pressing issues like determining if girls fart.

  16. K, so, like, people, OP is not talking about pooping within line of sight of their SO. They're just talking about being in the same living space and pooping.
