Disclaimer: if the words poop, tampon, or period creep you out...just leave this post now. (sorry Dad and Eric)
I recently read a couple articles talking about things you shouldn't talk to your boyfriend about. I couldn't disagree more, really.
- "I'm on my period or I'm about to start my period."
- "I'm so bloated."
- "I have to to go poop."
- "I got hit on today at work, school, whatever."
- "I hope to get married some day."
- "I need to go to the store for tampons."
- "I feel fat today."
Bodily Function Talk : Seriously. How old are we? If your boyfriend can't handle hearing about your bodily functions, maybe he shouldn't be your boyfriend. I mean obviously you don't need to go into super detail, but I feel like saying you are on your period or have to use the restroom are all normal things that one should expect to encounter when dating somebody. Boys know girls poop. If you sneak away for 10 minutes, do they think you're peeing? No.
Future Talk : As far as talk of the future, I think these things should be discussed even if it's only lightly. What is the point of dating somebody if you don't want the same things in the future? Do you want to find out 4 years down the road he never wants kids or never wants to get married? Doomed. Doomed I tell you.
Tampon Talk : Stupid. If I need to go to Target for tampons, am I supposed to tell my boyfriend to stay home? Sorry babe, you can't come with me. Yeah, that doesn't scream I'm guilty or anything.
Hit On Talk : It's all about security, people. Sometimes these stories can be funny. I've had a few encounters that were share worthy. I tell my boyfriend and he tells me. Is it really something to hide? If his ego can't take it...sorry not sorry.
Fat Talk : I am so guilty of this. Sometimes you just feel fat. Even if you aren't. I think it's okay to say it. Maybe you ate a huge meal. Maybe your food baby is feeling extra plump. Maybe you are going to start your period. Oops. I said the word. It doesn't mean you are insecure with yourself. It just means you are having a fat day. Throw on those leggings, girl.
My point? He's your boyfriend. You should be able to talk about anything. You could potentially be with this person forever. Are you supposed to never talk about how you are really feeling ever again??? You might as well not say another word to each other for the rest. of. forever... (draaaaaamatic)
What are your thoughts on this?
BTW : I'm guilty of all of these things. Oops. Sorry, boyfriend <3
