    I doubt she'd give a ****, but if she's the type of girl that gets all prissy about a fart then she isn't worth the effort and I'd move onto the next one.

    Personally if someone farted loudly on a date with me I'd assume they had no respect for me or manners. It's the same if someone kept burping or something similar, why didn't you just go to the bathroom? It's just etiquette really, especially on a first date.
    See this is a prime example of a prissy melodramatic girl.

    Did you not read what he said, he didn't do it intentionally, he tried to hide it, but it came out. It happens to us all unfortunately.

    She probably felt just as embarrassed as you that it had happened. Contact her yourself, she might just be shy .

    "Prissy and melodramatic"? No, I was just brought up with manners and he could have easily went to the bathroom. It wouldn't be acceptable in a job interview or a meeting and so it's not a great thing to do on a first date either. I know it's natural but it's something that should probably be avoided when trying to show your best side.

    I don't expect a prince charming on a first date or anything excessive but I also don't expect someone to fart/burp loudly in front of me either, it just gives a bad impression. I'm sure most men wouldn't find it particularly endearing either if the situation was reversed.

    I'm cheery. I just don't think it's particularly funny, it's not an awful crime either but it certainly is something you want to avoid when trying to make first impressions.

    She looked at me strange and we didn't speak of it, she hasn't contacted me since the date. (yesterday)
    Probably waiting for you to contact her.

    You should have acknowledged it and tried to make light of it. Not sweep it under the carpet.

    No you are being melodramatic, you're making out as if he farted in her face. Clearly he let it out thinking she wouldn't notice but unfortuately he was wrong. He is clearly really embarrassed about it and didn't mean it, yet you feel the need to vilify him. If he had done it deliberately to offend her then fair enough that would definitely be bad manners but that clearly was not the case and he is clearly horrified by it.

    Had he had a bit of a cold and accidentally sneezed spraying her slightly, nobody would have made a fuss about it and probably would have said it was mitake rather than bad manners. However a fart under similar sort of circuimstance and everyone has a fit. Sensationalised false outrage is actually quite pathetic.

    I'm not outraged and I'm not being sensationalist, I'm just giving my personal opinion which he asked for. I understand it wouldn't annoy some people, although it would annoy others. It was a mistake but she wouldn't know this, if it happened to me I would assume he did it frequently without caring or wasn't really interested in me.

    It's just the fact it was on a first date, she might have gotten the wrong impression and I'm letting him know this. He asked for everyones individual opinion, what's the point in lying about mine to make him feel better?

    If she did give a **** then she clearly wouldn't have been that bothered.

    That would be the correct etiquette in this situation - pretend it was the laughter that choked you

    If you were at an Indian restaurant with this date of yours, it's all fair play.
