    It is sad, you asshole. You say that as though it's a conscious choice to not piss when other people are around. It's not. :P
    Seriously, even if I'm bursting, as soon as I get to the urinal all the urge is gone. Personally, I think it has to do with public restrooms being foreign and dirty in my mind, as I never use them. But still, definitely not a conscious thing.

    God the worst is when it's someone I know in the bathroom. That happened to me a few times here at college. I go in, and like, our choir or band conductor is in there, and all of a sudden, I don't even feel pressure in the bladder, so I just stand there, for like, a minute. I know once I actually left in frustration because nothing was happening. Normally I don't have issues, but that was annoying. I felt like they were looking at me weird the whole day.

    Going to lunch today. I walked to my car and got in. One of the women that works down the hall was getting out of her car next to mine. I turned on my car and waited for her to pass in front of me before I pulled out. I waved and she waved back. Then I drove forward and turned to drive away. As I was turning the wheel, I accidentally honked the horn. She looked back at me, very confused. There was no way to convey "It was just an accident" so I just kept going.

    She probably didn't think twice about it. But I'm paranoid and assume that she thinks I'm weird now.

    Yes.

    Flowers do strange things to women. Maybe the sparks you didn't see would've emerged on the lovest day of the year.

    Unless you were doing it so you could move on to someone new for today. In which case, that was probably the honorable way to play it.

    I'd been dating my girlfriend for 4.5 years when she broke up with me over the phone. :|

    To be fair, 4.5 years earlier, I'd asked her to go out with me...on AIM.

    I probably had it coming.

    Still lame, though.

    A friend of mine had his girlfriend break up with him by text message. Apparently they had been having some problems, and hadn't seen each other in a few weeks, even though they don't live very far apart.

    Him: I'm sick of just talking on the phone and texting. I miss you. I want to talk to you face-to-face.
    Her: Every girl knows what that means. You just want to break up with me. Well too late I'm breaking up with you.

    Him(to himself): Wtf just happened?

    edit: I indicated she hung up. she didn't, just stopped texting.

    Not that I claim any experience whatsoever with this kind of thing, but is breaking up with someone over the phone that much worse than stringing them along long enough to meet face to face, which would probably involve a phone call anyway, in which you'd have to be vague enough about what you want to discuss that the other person would probably realize what you're doing anyway?

    I'm not sure this is the proper place to get into a discussion about this, but essentially it's about respect. Functionally, there's no real difference. But doing it face to face, even if they know it's coming based on what you said over the phone, shows that you respect them enough to break up with them in person instead of hiding behind the phone.

    I dunno, I haven't really had much experience with this either, but I don't really see it. Maybe I'll feel differently after someone breaks up with me over the phone.

    Don't be a goddamned idiot: I didn't say that it was a conscious decision. If it was a conscious decision, then they wouldn't be standing around in a public urinal in the first place. I just think that it's sad to still be so horribly insecure about your penis that you find it impossible to pee with other people around. I mean, I'm not Mr Dick Todger-McLargeHuge, and by no means go around clubbing baby seals to death with my massive cock, but if you're really that insecure about your own genitals, then wow.

    Really that's not that bad. I once broke up with a girl over MSN.... :S

    She wasn't too happy, but it was a weird relationship that lasted for like a week, and then ended with me leaving her for the girl who is now my wife.

    This.

    It hasn't absolutely nothing to do with insecurity. I'm aware that everyone is in the bathroom to piss. Most often, there are dividers between each urinal, so you can't even see what's going on next door. I have no explanation for why it happens. But it happens. Simply the presence of another person, just causes the need to go disappear. No amount of forcing it helps. Once they leave, the flow proceeds with ease.

    Trust me, it's not something you're going to psychologically diagnose in this thread. I've been trying to figure out what the hell the problem is for years and have come up with nothing.

    I didn't call you an asshole because I was being insecure about the problem. I was calling you an asshole because you were being an asshole and assuming you knew anything about the affliction, when you clearly don't.

    Its happened to me before. Such as when there is only one urinal and someone waiting behind you even though they are a good distance I have a hard-->impossible time peeing. College has helped me get over it, but sometimes I just can't go anymore...

    It doesn't have anything to do with insecurity, why would you assume that? There is no difference in cock shown in peeing vs. standing there with it out not peeing or in the stall. I don't have it like a clinical condition, but I do sometimes find it difficult to go with someone else in the room unless I really have to go. I don't know why, it even sometimes happens when I'm in a stall. Honestly, I don't see why you wouldn't have a problem going when there's someone standing right behind you. The crowed urinal thing after a movie or something strikes me as extremely bizarre. But that's just me. :P

    I used to have pretty severe paruresis when I was younger. It's a pretty common thing. It has nothing to do with insecurity about your penis. That doesn't even make any sense. It's simply being unable to relax or focus on the muscle needed to urinate, because you're too aware of the presence of someone else in the room. Most men have it to some degree, I've found. It's a pretty horrible condition though, and it can really affect your life. Imagine if you have it really bad, and you have to plan trips around bathroom access. Imagine if you have to plan jobs you can work at based on the nature of the washrooms there. Just awful.

    Urinals reminded me of something.

    Friend and I went to see a basketball game at a stadium about a decade ago. We were having beers and both got up to piss at the same time. We went into the can and it was empty except for this guy trying to teach his 3-5 year old son how to use a urinal. These are the floor type urinals, and this little kid is standing there, pants around his ankles, shirt pulled up under his armpits, bare assed, pelvis thrust way out.

    He is saying, excitedly "I'm doing it Dad! I'm doing it!" while the dad is clapping. We stood there for a second before turning right around and walking out...

    In other words, don't go to Walt Disney World.

    I had a friend who peed this way in grade school. It was recess and a few of us walked into the bathroom to discover him at the stall with his pants around his ankles, whizzing away.

    I started laughing and walked out. Then later he punched me in the kidney. I think it was a fair trade.

    Here is a neat story that i would like to share:

    So we are having a party at my place (I rent to my best friend, he owns the house). We are all having a good time getting drunk and deep frying a turkey. My girlfriend, her best friend, and I go downstairs in an effort to convince people to come drinking downstairs in the basement where we can make as much noise as we want. Well while i was chilling there with them, one of my friends from college comes and starts touching my girlfriend's best friend and calling her a whore. After that he asks her out, she refuses, but he wont stop touching her even though she is telling him to stop. Well I did the only logical thing i could think of in my drunken state and punched him in the chest and knocked the wind out of his drunken ass.

    Later on as we are playing guitar hero he comes and apologizes and passes out on one of the couches downstairs. Well we all make our way upstairs and leave him there by himself. Well after an hour one of my friends comes running upstairs from the basement asking for a bucket. Apparently while being passed he vomited on the couch, shat on the step-stool, and wiped himself with curtains we were trying to clean. A week after the stool-stooling he came and paid for all the damage.

    That's actually not a neat story. At all. I don't want people to poop on my stepping stool.

    I'm a clumsy person on occasion, and recently while in a hurry to get home after class I ate it really hard on the stairs. My shoes were wet from going outside in the snow, and when I went back inside for something I got the stairs wet. Coming back down, I slipped on the 3rd-to-last-stair. My feet went all the way in the air, I landed right on my ass and my books went flying all over. People just stared at me. Nobody asked me if I was okay.
