Commingle Again?

Story Sent in by Barbara:

I was out to dinner with Alex on our first date, at a popular hole-in-the-wall establishment that I had always wanted to try. He seemed a bit shy, so I did my best to engage him and laugh and put him at ease.

At one point, before our meals were served, he excused himself to go to the bathroom. As he departed, I realized that I also had to visit it, so I waited for him to come back.

When he did, I stood and said, "Be right back."

He grasped my wrist and said, "No!"

I asked, "What's wrong?"

He said, "The b-bathroom's unisex."

I replied, "That's okay. I don't mind."

"It didn't, well, it didn't, you see, the problem is that, well, it didn't exactly... er..."

The act of standing made me need to use the bathroom ten times more. Spit it out, man!

He finished, "It didn't, uh... didn't flush my pee all the way down."

"That's all right," I said.

"You don't understand. That means, you'll see my pee."


"And, you know. Pee onto it."

I forced a smile, gave him a thumbs up and said, "Can't wait," then headed to the bathroom.

Once I was done, I returned to the table.

Alex was gone.


  1. If it's yellow let it mellow.

    Maybe he was afraid you'd get splashback on the first date?

  2. what was he worried about, there were other customers so someone else probably went in there after him.
    Flush the toilet! I know too many people that say "it's just water"

  3. I'v been reading alot of the "bad date" stories this year and I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed the high level of mental illness involved when it comes to the problematic dates. Like this one here, the paranoia. I've noticed OCD's are pretty common along with bipolars. I myself began dating immediately after my divorce 2 years ago using dating sites, and found myself drained after a few months. People looking different than their pictures, thats probably the least of the problems I had. In fact, I have one really bad date I plan on posting here at some point when I have time. Its a bit long, but was quite an adventure. (in a bad way)

    1. Unless you are appropriately licensed to make such diagnoses, I would refrain from wantonly labeling people as mentally ill.

  4. OP sounds like a fun girl. Who cares about a little pee anyway? Its like 99% water anyway.

    Poop is another story altogether...
