Dating advice from bathroom walls

Much hoo-hah has been made recently about dating while feminist, with many, many bloggers--including the ladies here at HD--weighing in on how best to be hetero, feminist and horny. Good advice and forward-thinking, the lot of it, but what of the masses? Specifically, what of the masses who take sharpies into bathrooms and scribble on the walls?

I'm currently escaping a rain shower at my favorite Austin, Texas dive--of which I am, ahemm, the Mayor--and took a trip to the ladies' room. Looking around me as I did my business, I noticed that there's an awful lot of good-ish advice written on the stalls. If you're feeling lost or troubled in your dating or sex life, I invite you to look no further than the women of the Hole in the Wall for all the wisdom you need:

Love yourself first! Then, you can respect yourself:

Being sucked, rather than stuck, is often a good way to go about things--literally or figuratively.

Respect can come from being peed on in the way you like.

Keep your priorities straight, and you'll do just fine.

Conversely, I've never once seen good dating advice (even humorously so) left on the wall of a men's room. I have seen some highly advanced mathematics, though. Take that as you will.

I feel like there should be a book of bathroom advice for bathroom reading. Patent pending!
