based on my knowledge of these three words, I would say "bloated" means that a person has too much gas in his stomach and tends to belch a lot, while "gassy" and "flatulent" are synonyms, meaning that a person tends to fart a lot, with "gassy" being colloquial and "flatulent" being formal
any suggestions? correct me if I'm wrong : )

    You're right about 'gassy' and 'flatulent' but 'bloated' could mean fat or swollen or even wealthy, depending on context of course.
