Embarrassing Laundry Room Blunder

Dear Sugar,
I have a huge crush on a guy who lives in my apartment building. We see each other in passing from time to time and give each other a flirtatious hi and a smile. Last week we pulled into our garage at the same time and we got to talking. He was as charming and sweet as he is cute and when he asked me to grab a beer over the weekend, I gladly accepted.

Last night I ran into my crush yet again in the laundry room. We exchanged some small talk as he folded his laundry. I went along my merry way when, to my horror, I dropped a pair of period stained underwear on the floor! Do I even need to say anything more? I snatched them up so fast I am not sure if he saw, but needless to say, I was and still am completely mortified. How can I save face? Will he cancel our date? Over Exposed Emily

Dear Over Exposed Emily
You don't need to say anything more... that is truly mortifying and I am sorry. Are you sure he saw your undies? Did you exchange any conversation after the fact? If you snatched them up as fast as I can imagine you did, I really think it is safe to say he didn't even notice. You're a woman who gets her period. If he scares that easily and cancels your date, he isn't worth your time in the long run. Be confident and assume he didn't notice, or better yet didn't care, and have fun with your hunky neighbor.

I'm sure he won't think much of it if he DID see them. Just relax. One time I was in my bathing suit with a family with 3 girls and one boy in the pool. I love them alot and they're realty nice. But one time my top went up a little which exposed half of you know what. I was sure he saw it but he didn't make anything of it. I was mortified the whole day.

Try not to worry about it, everyone has a pair of those, and he's probably mature enough to realise this, if not, don't be worried about him. Plus, you don't even know if he saw them. ------------------------------------------------------ Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. — Albert Einstein

I agree with SUGAR -- just assume he didn't see. You'll never know (unless you ask) so WHY torture yourself?

If he's really interested, the underwear won't be a deterrent. Actually, even if he ISN'T really interested, I can't see why the underwear would turn him off. So I doubt it's anything to worry about. But let us know what happens!

also wash blood stains in cold water so it doesn't stain.

Cuba you said exactly what I was thinking. Guys have gross underwear too. Hey I have my "period panties" too. Im sure a lot of girls do. And if this causes him to be weird then he really is not worth your time

If he cancels, he's a douche and therefore not worth your time. If you want to get blood out of clothing, rinse it with hydrogen peroxide. I work in the ER and sometimes get blood on my clothes. It's fun to watch it work too.

I don't think he'll cancel. Is it embarassing? Yes. Is it a deal breaker? No.

Will he cancel your date? How on earth would we know? If he does he's totally lame and it's not your loss. As for how to save face, I hope you are kidding. What would you say: "Hey, hottie, did you see my bloody underwear back there? Well it wasn't mine!" The girl in the stock photo accompanying this post looks underage. Good laundry advice, kittycat.

oh please. what girl hasnt got stained panties? the key is to wash the stains off by hand before they dry out if u do ur laundry once a week! as we all know dry blood is very hard to wash out. he might not like it but he shouldnt be scared, this is natural stuff. once u get married u see everything!

High five to cubadog.. dudes definitely have a few gross ass pairs themselves.. but, they don't get their periods so I don't know why they keep em around!!

Don't worry about it. He most likely didn't notice and was enjoying the view as you bent over to pick up your panties rather than looking at the panties! :)

I don't think he saw.. and if he did - you should play it off like he didn't. If you act weird.. he's going to analyze the situation, too. If you just blow it off - so should he. Don't feel like your the only one who's gone through this.. I wear my crappy underwear when I have mine.. and I totally left them on my boyfriends floor. He definitely saw them and was grossed out. So was I. I just told him to get over it.. I don't want to risk ruining my pretty panties.. and.. he's seen plenty of those.. so - at least he knows they exist. Just make sure you're wearing pretty panties every time you see this guy - JUST IN CASE!! Haha.. especially on your dates!
