You may tell yourself you can't poop in front of your boyfriend or girlfriend because you want to keep the romance alive. But the truth is, it's because you don't feel totally comfortable with that person. You don't prairie dog for someone you give a real, long-lasting damn about. If someone loves you, taking a poop around them is not going to scare them away.
It actually says a lot more about the state of your relationship than it does about the state of your bowels. If you'd rather be constipated than poop in the same apartment as your S.O., you have got big stinky problems and they can't be held in or flushed away.
If you're not pooping around your partner, it just isn't love.
You shouldn't wait to shit at someone's apartment
According to the Healthline survey, more than 28% of men and 22% of women said they would wait between one and three months to poop at their partner's place.
Do you seriously want to spend a quarter of a year convincing your partner you don't poop? What is the point of that? If my boyfriend never pooped, I would be worried about his body, not how smelly a poop can be. Relationships should come with realistic expectations. This is real life, not an episode of Gossip Girl.
