New app wants to reconnect you with friends you made in the nightclub bathroom
According to the app, 59% of people have given or received relationship advice in a club toilet
It’s fair to say we’ve all made a pal in the club toilet at some point — whether they’ve helped you to zip your skirt back up, advised you to ditch an awful date, or roasted you on your favourite football team.
A new app is looking to pair you back up with those bathroom comrades through funny anecdotes and drunken photos.
From the team behind Dusk - a nightlife discovery app - comes their brand new service Bathroom BFFS, a place to submit stories from long-lost bathroom buddies in the hopes of reuniting you with the one that got away.

According to a survey of 2,000 Brits aged 18 - 45 shared by Dusk, 59% of people have given or received relationship information in a club, pub, or bar toilet. Of those, one in five have ended relationships or started new ones off the back of their bathroom buddy’s advice.
Incentivised by a chance to win ‘the ultimate VVIP festival experience’, club-goers and pub dwellers are asked to submit their best stories which will be displayed on their website and app.
“This woman overheard me in the loos debating whether to get a boob job. She told me she'd had hers done a few months ago, proceeded to get fully topless and let me touch up her new boobs for ‘quality assessment’,” one post reads alongside a drunken selfie.

“Both her and her breasts were glorious, and I went on to get the number for her surgeon and now have a fabulous pair of my own! I think of her every time I look down and wish I could find her to thank her.”
In another post, one girl shared: “Whenever I go on a night out, I like to ask girls in the toilets their worst boy icks. I have a list of about 50 on my notes app that I've collected.
“My all-time fave is 'asking for the soup of the day' and I haven't stopped thinking about it since. Amy, babe, wherever you are, I hope you're doing good.”
