Study shows it takes men four months of dating before they’re happy to share food with their partner
Elsewhere, 27% of women think men should wait eight months before farting in front of them. Let your partner know...
Congratulations, Valentine's Day has been and gone. Here's hoping that you're all still in happy and healthy relationships, or happy being single. Most importantly, here's hoping that you're not broke after splashing out on
that extremely cynical day when you're absolutely ripped off that celebration of love that can be a tad bit expensive.
Anyway, the world keeps on turning and Hollywood will always need new material for their next rom-com. Once again, we're certain that you're all absolutely perfect husbands/wives/boyfriends/girlfriends and that you're devoid of any single flaw or annoying trait (Cough, cough).
Ok, we know that you're perfect but what about the 2,000 people that were recently surveyed by From Mars about their dating habits and rules?
Well, the research revealed that it takes men four months of commitment before they’re happy to share any form of food with you. Somewhere, we're certain that Joey Tribbiani is nodding in agreement.
Elsewhere, 67% of men said that they don’t feel comfortable discussing periods until after six months of being in a relationship, while one in five men say they don’t want to see a partner’s toothbrush in their bathroom until five months have passed.
On the plus side, 25% of those men surveyed are willing to give their partner a drawer in their home within 3-6 months.
As for the eternal hoodie/jumper dilemma, 78% of men are only happy for their partner to wear their jumpers after five months of dating.
Ok, so that's the neurosis and weird habits of men covered, but what about the ladies that were surveyed?
Well, 27% women think men should wait eight months before farting in front of them, however 33% of those ladies also said they never want to hear or smell it.
Yep, we get it.
On this note, one in three women say they don’t want their partner to pee with the door open, and women also don’t want to discuss toilet issues until ten months into a relationship. However on average, men said that seven months is acceptable.
Truth be told, we could have went a lifetime without knowing that one-in-nine men would be happy to tell their partner about their toilet troubles within two weeks of dating.
Seriously, who are these people?

Then again, there's no need for you to change anything, you're perfect already (cough, cough).
