Tinder Poo Guy Scores Second Date And Raises Heaps Of Cash
Liam Smyth's story about how a particularly unusual date went viral for all the right reasons. To be clear, his date was lovely and the woman even more so - however, the female in question got stuck in a very precarious position after attempting to dispose of an unflushable poo by launching it out of the bathroom window.
However, despite how bad things got, he managed to score a second date with the mystery woman. Liam has told BBC Points West: "She was a really, really lovely girl. I had a great night, we had a lot in common, had really good conversation.
"I met up with her again for a drink briefly afterwards."
But it's unclear whether the two will meet again: "Well, I'm really busy with my dissertation at the moment but as to what the future holds, I don't know. But she was certainly a very, very nice girl."

His story was read by many after he created a GoFundMe page following the date, as he needed to raise £200 ($260) to pay for a window in his apartment after firefighters were called to remove it.
Why, you ask?
Well, after taking his Tinder date to Nandos for dinner, the pair went back to his for some 'Louis Theroux and chill'. However, things went terribly for the woman after she went to the bathroom and found out the toilet wouldn't flush. In a panic, she wrapped up her shit and threw it out the window.
He was surprisingly cool about the whole affair and told her they'd go out and pop the turd back in the toilet so that no one gets a nasty surprise in the morning. Although Liam quickly remembered that the window to the bathroom isn't an ordinary window.
He says: "Owing to a design quirk of my house, the toilet window does not in fact open to the garden, but instead into a narrow gap of about a foot and a half, separated from the outside world by another (non-opening) double glazed window. It was into this twilight zone that my date had thrown her poo."
Her experience as an amateur gymnast allowed her to crawl, head-first, into the window, and fling the poo back in the bathroom. But she got stuck upside down and was trapped there until some trusty firefighters were called and carefully broke the window to rescue her.
As a result, he had to fork out £300 ($390) for the repair job. But because he's a postgraduate student, he's a bit short of cash; so, he started a fundraising page which has absolutely smashed the original target of £200. It's currently sitting just above £2,000 ($2,610) and Liam insists the cash left over after he pays the bill will be evenly divided between two charities, Toilet Twinning and Firefighters Charity.
Louis Theroux seemed pleased to be part of the story - in fact, he tweeted that he was 'honoured' to be named in the epic saga:
Not the best way to kick off a relationship, but at least Liam will have a hilarious story that will last a lifetime.
Louis too, come to think of it.
