Created through the partnership of online dating site,, and city tour group, London Loo Tours, toilet dating allows eager singles to meet and greet over pints and potties with simultaneous pub crawls and sightseeing tours of the most bizarre bathrooms in London. In addition to meeting Mr. Right in the John, guests will have the opportunity to learn such toilet trivia as how toilets operated in Roman times and how to find free restrooms in one of the world's most costly cities.

If proven successful, toilet dating tours could spread to other major cities. Though we imagine getting patrons to admit they met their soul mate in the shitter might be a bit tricky.
