Hey guys! OP here. First of all: yay, one of my submissions finally made it! So, to clear some things up: 1. The fml is obviously about me being embarrassed to death that this happened. I wanted to make a good first impression and I was so nervous and I forgot to put the cup away. It's defiantly not about me thinking she made an unreasonable request or anything. 2. The cup was emptied and thoroughly cleaned. I had left it on the edge of the sink to dry off before putting it away and I accidentally forgot about it. She saw that and was fine with touching it, so it wasn't really something disgusting, just a very, very unfortunate thing to happen on our very first day of living together. 3. This happened a while ago, and neither I or my roomie think it's a big deal. We're both fine with, you know, women occasionally not covering up all evidence of having their period once in a while. It was just incredibly embarrassing and awkward when it happened, but now we're all good! :) Cheers!

I think that's a little extreme. Even if I didn't see op's reply I would presume it was cleaned up, because it would make no sense to leave a cup full of menstrual blood.

Dude I would have been so embarrassed! But I'm glad it didn't stop you and your roomie from being cool with each other. Glad all is okay now!

So? What's the big deal? I wouldn't have had a problem with that even though I'm male. Females have specific needs. Living in a house full of females allowances are made for that sort of thing.

What is a menstrual cup?

a google search that can change your life

It's a silicone cup shaped device that you put in your vaginal canal to collect the period blood. They are safer than tampons, can be used for 12 hours and for $40 can be cleaned and reused for several years which serious lowers the cost of having a period. Some places sell less sturdy disposable versions if you are interested.

I've done the same thing but on the side of my bathtub xD
