No matter how much you love someone, the first-times of every relationship are always a little embarrassing. You're yourself but are you really yourself? To be yourself completely means opening up to some of the most brutally natural things about you and you really don't know whether your partner would like that! However, there comes a point where you have to unleash your inner demon and show your significant other just what they've gotten themselves into.
Navigating through the land of love
Ah love! So pure, so magical, so...gross? Movies depict the kind of love that only revolves around fairytales and butterflies. opening up to your true human actions can be quite embarrassing at first especially since you're both still trying to understand your compatibility.
Building the comfort
Well it's not so much about the comfort as it is about the trust. Again, you're still getting to know whether the person is a psychopathic killer or the one that will keep you happy for the rest of your life. Either way, you really want to build that trust first.
Fearing the unknown
There's also the fact that you're not really fully aware of what's to come so you end up fearing the unknown. A new relationship is like an unknown land, you're scared of what lays ahead so you do everything in your power to make things run smooth.
Reaching the point
And alas, as slowly as it begins, soon you'll reach the point where you're finally comfortable with each other. This is when you reach this point in the relation where you actually feel like you can finally walk out of your "perfect" demeanor and show your SO how human you are!
The gradual increase
The comfort level always begins at a very gradual pace. You wouldn't even know what's going on but you've finally reached the point where your SO seems more human to you as opposed to a ball of heavenly beauty they looked like when you first started dating.
You're finally there!
You've finally reached that point of comfort where you can insult each other but you don't get offended because...well...it's only love! That still wouldn't disregard how awkward certain first timers would still feel. Here are a few you'll come across.
First timers #1: Messy eaters
You know how you want to eat an ice cream but you're a messy eater so you pretend you don't like ice cream while on the inside you're screaming, "Goddammit! Give me the damn ice cream!!" Yeah, you'll always reach that point where being a messy eater is something you'll both enjoy.
First timers #2: Look who can burp!
You know what the best feeling is? Being able to burp whenever you feel like it. Seriously, holding back a really good burp just because your SO is around could easily be one of the most disappointing things to face. Those who burp together, stay together!
First timers #3: The first poo
So till today, you've been the perfect saint who doesn't do anything disgusting like fart or poo. However, you are human after all and that means you have the right to relieve yourself of the waste building inside of you. Think of what'll happen when you move in together!
First timers #4: Opening the doors to gross sex
Sex is great, who doesn't enjoy it? But every couple reaches the point where their experiments turn a little bit towards the gross side. Yours will too and that first is going to be pretty awkward! Don't worry, as long as you're showing your SO a good time, you'll work out.
First timers #5: Forget the poo, start with the fart!
Taking the first dump is jumping the gun a little, you need to begin by a simple fart first. Pretend you didn't mean it and act all embarrassed because chances are, your SO is going to take it as a joke. If not, well, they'll have to leave with it!
First timers #6: Updating them about your toilet adventures
Well now that you've burped and farted and pooed, you're pretty comfortable talking about how great of a time you had in your toilet. It's a little awkward at first but once you start, it's very difficult to stop especially since your SO encourages you. Now that's a good SO!
First timers #7: Squeaky clean
You know it's true love when they decided not to leave you to clean up your own mess. Hey, love can get tricky and it's important to be there with them especially through the messy times. It's a silent vow of "for better or for worse"!
First timers #8: Toilet lovin'
See how many times there's been a mention of the toilet? That's how magical the toilet is and even though it may be awkward, the biggest milestone of every relationship is seeing each other on the toilet. That's just a mention of how you two are meant to be together.
First timers #9: Squeeze that zit (bonus points if it's in a ~hard to reach~ place)!
Zits are gross but zits on your SO are something that you definitely have to burst! If your SO has a zit on a -hard to reach- place and you're adamant on popping it then that's definitely true love. After all, if you're willing to pop a zit then you're willing to do anything!
