There's a Sex and the City
episode where Miranda is dating a guy who likes to do his business with the door open. At one point, he walks into the bathroom as she's brushing her teeth and pees in front of her. She finally stops dating him when she makes him coffee while he has diarrhea in her apartment - with the door open.
Communication in any relationship is the key to its success. But how much information is too much?
My mother is the queen of TMI. She once told my sister the name of the Boston hotel in which she was conceived. She also doesn't understand why she shouldn't tell us this kind of information. So I have a higher TMI tolerance than most.
That said, having a guy go to the bathroom in front of me is a dating dealbreaker. Any mention of bathroom business is gross to begin with. But a guy who does his business in front of me will quickly become into a guy who I cannot have any sexual attraction to. I don't want to picture you on the toilet when you're having sex. Call me squeamish, but gross.
But some people think that after a certain amount of time, this kind of conduct is acceptable. Certainly, there's a level of intimacy in a long-term relationship that lets you do and say things on Date 500 that you wouldn't dream of on Date 5. Still, sometimes, too much is just too much. It's healthy to keep a bit of mystery in a relationship. And for those of you who say that you've been married 15 years and have 3 kids and know everything about each other, at the very least, shut the bathroom door.What counts as too much information - action or word-wise? Would you be OK with having a S/O use the bathroom in front of you?
