I've read a few stories (fictional or otherwise) of guys discreetly meeting each other after eyeing each other across a restaurant by both going to the establishment's restroom. Well, I finally got to experience the same thing recently while I was with a bunch of straight friends who don't know my "other side" in a posh restaurant in Makati. Sitting at a nearby table was this great-looking guy with a great smile and a nice stubbled jaw drinking beer with some of his friends. We both caught each others eyes and eventually exchanged some long meaningful stares.
I guess it's just instinct for discreet guys to gravitate to the restroom when searching for opportunities. And in a restaurant, the pretext of freshening up or answering to the call of nature provides a perfect cover as to why you'd have to temporarily leave the table. In my recent encounter, I simply mumbled an excuse, got up and went to the comfort room (as we Pinoys like to call the restroom) and proceeded to relieve my bladder. I lingered there for a while and as expected, the guy I did the eye equivalent of a footsie with entered the restroom as well. He pretended to take a leak and afterwards stood beside me at the sink counter. We smiled at each other and he introduced himself and I likewise. No, nothing happened (though I would've loved to ravage his lips with kisses). The problem is, that restroom was really not a place to do anything naughty so we just exchanged cellphone numbers and parted ways. Yeah, I know it's a bit anti-climactic.
If there's any lesson to be learned from this, it's that discreet PLU guys can be quite resourceful people. The need to be circumspect in meeting other guys provide us with some unique social skills that straight people would never think of.
Anyway, I'd love to hear if you have any similar stories as well. I'm sure some of you have more steamier encounters to share. Hehehe.
