A British dating website is attempting a new way of connecting singles that even they admit is crappy: Toilet dating.
Toilet Dating combines a singles night with a pub crawl and a sightseeing tour of the city's most interesting bathrooms, the Metro reported.
According to a press release, folks who sign up for the excrement-oriented event will endure tons of toilet puns and learning the ins and outs of toilet history from Roman times.
Participants will also learn tricks for finding free public restrooms in London.
DoingSomething founder Matt Janes is flush with excitement about the possibilities.
“Nothing would be more awkward than having a first date in a toilet… until now," he said, according to Cosmopolitan.co.uk.
“We’ve given the London loo scene the ultimate DoingSomething.co.uk makeover and are encouraging Londoners to not be down in the dumps and try this new dating experience.”
As you might expect, toilet dating is inspiring a lot of cheeky responses, such as this one from a HuffPost UK blogger known as The Guyliner:
"I suppose it doesn't hurt to start a date where most of them end up: swirling down the pan with the whiff of, well, let's call it failure ... I'd never be an advocate for couples lying about where they met, but I'd probably glam this one up a bit – I'm not sure even those mythical grandchildren we're all saving up our stories to tell wouldn't be that impressed. At least there will be alcohol."
The next Toilet Dating session is set for Sept. 6 with others planned in the future. If the concept doesn't crap out, there are plans to spread it to other cities with suitable public bathrooms.
And that slams the lid of this news leak.
