Why do girls go to the john together?
June 8, 2007 1:05pm CST
The age-old question of guys. It usually puzzles as when girls suddenly leave the table in swarms to flock to the johns. Sometimes we don't mind. But when paranoia strikes... What's happening behind closed doors?

There are several reasons girls and women will use the buddy system for going to the ladies room. One of the most important reasons females may travel in a pack to the bathroom is for safety purposes. Believe it or not, there have been many incidents of foul-play, and victimization of women who have found themselves alone in a restroom. Another reason is to touch up make-up and on that occasion some girls/women may share their make-up. An obvious reason is to release the tension of the moment. For instance, you are out with a mixed crowd and maybe one of your friends is feeling uncomfortable due to another member of the crowd--it is easier to excuse yourself from the situation when you call bathroom break with a few friends instead of venturing out on your own. Maybe the setting you are in is too loud for individual conversation or you don't want to be rude by engaging in individual conversation in the group setting, so you take that opportunity to talk while you are in the restroom. You can catch up on the latest gossip and even discuss another person that may be in the group. Clothing malfunctions are a definite reason to swarm to the ladies room in a flock. I still think the number one reason women tend to flock to the restroom together is for safety reasons. Sometimes there is safety in numbers.

when i used to go out clubbing with my friends ( a few years ago now lol) i often wondered why alot of my friends would want to go to the toilet in packs... i go to the toilet on my own, i do not need help rofl! but on the occasions my friends would ask me to go with them it was usually because they wanted to have a chat without having to shout over the music, it is much quieter in the ladies loos than in the rest of a club! as for if you are out on dates, yeah it's to talk about the guys you are with without them hearing what we have to say! (hehe)

I don't usually go with another girl but I have to admit sometimes I went there with someone. It doesn't happen a lot behind closed doors, girls talk, some take the other to hold the purse, others just want some company. While girls don't mind another girl in the bathroom boys sometimes feel a little embarrassed when another guy is next to him... I don't know what is stranger lol
