"I have to go pee or else I'm just gonna pee all over myself."

What would you do if you were starting to hit it off with someone in a club, and then they said that?

Answer: I left.

I'm a crude F. I could forgive "I'm sorry, I really have to launch a torpedoe, you just came at the wrong time" cuz that kinda honesty, or BALLS, deserves absolute respect, as long as they found me.

I won't stand in one place, waiting for someone who walks away, unless I know they came with me. I'm gonna go about my business, and see their reaction when they see me again.

I will give them the benefit of the doubt, but I will capitalize on the diversification of effort that comes with the doubt of benifit.

at least they make an excuse, how about this one Chris?

"I'll be right back, can you watch my drink?"

THATS just offensive.

I always said "sure!" and smiled.
but I walked away as soon as they left. I'm not your F'n BUTLER!

Now I thought the deal breaker was the use of the juvenile word 'pee', not as bad as whizz or weewee, but pretty childish.

But just not wanting to give a person time to use the facilities when needed seems kind of immature as well, or am I missing something?

Michael Farris: Keep in mind that this was not someone I went to the club with, it was someone I had just met there.

How long do you have to know someone before they're allowed to go to the bathroom?

Ann: A VERY long time.

Chris: Me, I wouldn't wait around. The trouble with standing still in a club is that everyone takes that as an invitation to make their approach.

I don't know that I would toss the dude and leave, though. But, you know, high standards are a good thing!

Jennifer: My problem is with the discussion of peeing. I don't wanna hear that.

Chris: Oh, I see. Well, if peeing-all-over-himself charm was the first thing he broke out, homeskillet doesn't sound so appetizing.

Hey, is that an allusion to "The Comeback"?

I hate the infantilization of language when it comes to common functions, thats why I made my first post.

I will walk away from where I was, and float around the bar/club whatever, and if they find me, I might consider a rehash, but "I need to pee" is silly. ESPECIALLY from a man.

MEN don't say "pee" they say "piss" or "hit the head" or "go to the bathroom" and such, and you ALWAYS apologize in the face of a potential partner.

"sorry babe? I'll be right back, but I have to make a call." or "I have to use the restroom" you NEVER NEVER NEVER infantilize or "bitchify" or "pussify" yourself by saying "pee"

HELL! women already have created the term "powder my nose."

To be a little girl within a few minutes is just WEAK!

Only thing I can think of is if that person thought of you as a one timer, hoping you would see them as an easy mark.

Yeah, I can never understand people making constant references what they're going to do in the bathroom when they're talking to someone they're hoping to have sex with. Why would that make me interested?

*sorry, that should have been "...constant references TO..."

The verification word is actually
