Boys are Icky
I have a question.
Please, please help me answer it.
How do you get a man to stop belching? I don't mean 'stop belching' in the sense that they never again regurgitate air through their esophagus... but I do mean 'stop' making so much racket about it.
I have the best boyfriend in the world. He's gorgeous. He's tall. He does everything for me. He ALWAYS smells good. He's an incredible lover. He's intelligent. Those are the things that attracted me to him. Those all still remain, but now I get the loud, disgusting belches.
It always ALWAYS seems like just when I'm about to call him 'sex' or say something otherwise nice, just as I part my lips, he makes a sound like there's a dying moose trying to get out of his stomach. WHAT THE HELL?
I do have plenty of time to compliment him. This isn't a CONSTANT occurance... but it never used to happen! I realize he burped in the past. I can dig that. I can dig proving just how manly you are around your other male friends (God help us when they start to school like piranhas..) or if we're all drinking and being lame and... drunk. But GAH. Sitting at the table? Getting out of bed? I'm staring at his back, thinking about how hot he is... and he lets out that sound.
Maybe you can't stop this. Maybe, given all his other wonderful qualities, I should just accept this, move on, and thank my lucky stars he doesn't have some sort of fart rating system or something.
Have any of you ladies (and some mens) had any luck at curbing the oral flatulence? I've tried to drop hints in my habitual, humorous way... but it falls on deaf ears. Unlike his burps... which crash into ears that seem to hear all too well. Mine.
