No matter what part of the world, what culture or social setting, as soon as a girl mentions she is going to the bathroom, a whole club follows her. Why do girls go to the bathroom together? This question has puzzled men for generations.
It is not because girls’ bladders work at the same time, and girls themselves don’t even think about it usually as it is something understood. Like us, most of you must be baffled by this secret, so let us break it down for you.
1. They make sure they are looking good!
An infamous fact about girls is that they provide the ‘you look good; support to their besties, and the bathroom is a very private setting is a great spot to ensure that the whole squad looks chic.
They freshen up, get those food bits out of their teeth, and adjust any flyaway hair. Of course, they cannot be doing all this around guys! They will be weirded out and completely miss the charm and point of it.
2. If you are on a double date, they are talking about you…
Double dates are a trial for a couple to test how things will work out and go on with friends. Girls are brutally honest when it comes to such situations, so when they head towards the bathroom together, it is where the ‘yay or nay’ decision will be made.
This is one of the most nerve-wracking times for girls to accompany each other to the bathroom together, as they make their life decisions with their friends’ opinions!
3. They are talking about whatever they can’t say around you!
There is a girl code: things are better kept quiet until we get some alone time. If there is a private message from your friend, it must be understood that it will be talked about in the bathroom.
No one will judge as they have their conversation, and that’s the beauty of it. If you got anything to talk about then and there, take your girl squad and head towards the bathroom.
If a girl asks her friend to go to the bathroom, it is a code to say, “We need to talk about something which can’t be said in front of these people.”
Gossip for girls is inevitable. It is that simple. When they go out to the bathroom together, it is their gossip session, which can be anything – the food they had leading to a conversation about how their aunt makes amazing pudding, or how the next door girl cheated on her boyfriend.
They get this little time to say anything they want to, or maybe even just a quick rant about something annoying them.
5. The Society
The world we have been brought up in is a place where anything can happen. There are very fewer chances of a mishap, although, but there is also a high chance of it at the same time, weird, right? This is how it is.
So, if you are going to the bathroom in a public place alone, you are at risk somehow, you don’t know who’s waiting there, you don’t know if there’s anybody who may even hurt you. Please don’t feel awkward to go to the bathroom with your friend, as it is entirely reasonable and a lot safer.
6. Instant Confidence Booster
Girls are quite sensitive, and people do sometimes give mean comments or say something hurtful. A girl understands with her intuition when the other girl may be hurting, and if you have a friend in need, it is a very healthy habit to get to the bathroom and talk it out.
It may sound bizarre, but the bathroom may turn out to be the place where everybody smiles again, regroups, returns, and comes back from with a smile.
7. They may be in need of a certain something
Undoubtedly this must have happened to almost all of you girls out there – the monthly gift arrives as a surprise, and you rush around for your feminine supplies. It occurs at the most unexpected places, and that’s where friends come in!
Together you all go, supply, and conquer; nobody makes that kind of trade in front of everybody as it is awkward not just for you but those around as well. Hence, the bathroom is!
8. Boy Talk!
You spot this cutie and follow him all around the place, and suddenly your friend intervenes and mentions, ‘Oh, I know him.’ Now you want to know anything and everything about him – and so we head to the bathroom for a safe chit-chat about this latest cutie. Relatable, huh?
This is how the bathroom has a ‘sentimental’ value for them as well, as they are making major life decisions or some fascinating discussion about this hot yet cute new guy they just passed by!
9. The Urgent Quiet Time
Every time you go to a party or a club, the loud noise is very annoying despite the night being very fun-filled, having food and drinks and music and whatnot. But what if something happens or something comes in your mind which you want to tell your friend instantly?
You go like, “LET’S GO TO THE BATHROOM. I NEED TO TELL YOU SOMETHING!” And your friend is like, “WHAT?!?! I CAN’T HEAR YOU!!”. And there you drag her to the bathroom with you and have that quick chat with her.
10. Heart to Heart!
A ladies’ bathroom is such a weird place, you see one girl crying like anything over her dead puppy, and the other is jumping while showing her engagement ring to her friends. The bathroom is their go-to place to talk and do anything and everything.
Most of these are on the silly side, and men reading this must be blown away. But who cares? This is how girls are happy-go-lucky in their way. So the next time you see the girls from your group going to the bathroom together, don’t ask each other the naïve question again that why do girls go to the bathroom together? Just remember the above and help yourself on your own!
