Things Not to Say to a Friend You See on a Date

Who set you up with him?

Soooo…. should I plan for a wedding in the future? [wink wink nudge nudge]

Oh well, we all have to eat a few lemons.

Don’t take this the wrong way but, next time you go out? Let me do your make-up.

Your tag is sticking out.

He brought you here? He took me to Abigael’s on our first date.

You can never tell – my first date with my husband was terrible.

  1. Lots of posts mention going to bathroom on date. Who (among the guys) does that? I mean guys avoid that as much as possible and girls always go to fix their face, call a friend, etc.

  2. I don’t think I’ve been on a single date over 2 hours long where the guy didn’t take a bathroom break. I always assumed they had small bladders.

  3. Really??? Must be a new thing since SmartPhones came along (so they can text their friends, check email, etc). When I dated, I rarely went to the bathroom unless it was a very long date, like 6+ hours.

    Seriously, what man needs the bathroom every 2 hours? That’s pregnant woman territory 🙂

  4. Keep in mind that the boy may have gotten in his car an hour or more before the date began, so cut him some slack!

  5. Two questions

    1) You’ve been on dates under 2 hours???
    2) Over two hours and they need to use the restroom? I’ve never had a date under two hours and I’ve twice in my dating career beaked to use the restroom. Girls do it all time. But two hours and the guy breaks? Is this normal? I’ll have to speak with my friends. I’ve never met a healthy guy who needs to use the restroom every 2 hours, or three with the car ride.

  6. Well, assuming he’s planning on spending 3 hours with the girl, and it took him an hour to get there, he’ll likely spend another hour going home, for a total of 5…

  7. Right, but she said any date over 2 hours, and I’m assuming not every guy drives that long. And even if it’s 5 hours. That’s some bladder issues if you can’t wait five hours. Definitely a reason to say no. How can you marry someone with health issues? 🙂

  8. I’ve been on shorter dates, for sure. And not complaining that they were short either. Usually restaurant dates. There’s a limit to how long you can eat, and central Flatbush isn’t the best place for an afterdinner stroll…

  9. On almost every date I have been on (and I have been dating for 3 years now, so there has been quite a few), the boy has gone to the bathroom at least one per date. I, on the other hand, has only excused myself to use the restroom once.

  10. B4S, Flatbush is awesome for a stroll! You can walk around the streets and look at all the new fancy houses that have been built or are in the process of being built 🙂

  11. The time is a major factor for guy bathroom breaks! If I was going from the Heights to midtown, which is a 40-minute-ish subway or shuttle ride, add the length of the date (let’s say 2-3 hours) and the 40-minute-ish trip back, I would certainly take a bathroom break before going back. No reason to sit there suffering the whole return trip.

    Add further pressure on top of that if you’re drinking something at either Starbucks (not coffee mind you, but a naked juice or whatever).

    Their’s also the medical fact that urinary frequency as a symptom of incontinence is defined urination eight or more times a day or two or more times at night. Roughly that means for a 16 hour waking day, a healthy man will urinate around every 2 hours. Even if a man were to urinate less frequently than that, I’d say 3-4 hours spent on a date + initial travel time would definitely warrant a bathroom break.

    At any rate, the list is interesting. I wonder what a list of things a guy would say to a male friend when his date goes on a bathroom break looks like.

    Aren’t restaurant dates usually longer? You have to wait for the food, eat bentch and talk. Unlike starbucks where you just drink a coffee. Plus, restaurant dates are usually at least a second date when you somewhat like this person enough that you can hopefully talk with them over two hours.

    Every date the guy goes to the b-room??? I’m not getting this.

    Every two hours??? I must have an amazing bladder. I can’t be the only who can go 6+ hours without using the restroom, can I?
