You may think there is a kind of secret or ritual, when it's really very simple!
When we watch TV, we all wait for commercial breaks to go to the bathroom, so we won't miss anything. But when you're out, or doing whatever, there aren't any designated "commercial breaks".

Ladies are traditionally known for being more relational than men, so they sometimes look for unimportant breaks where they can cut out and pee. If one lady decides to go, another might realize "Oh yeah, this probably is a good break." By the time you get to lady number 3 or 4, she's not only thinking that, but, also that with a bunch of ladies gone, there might be a lull in conversation, or at least lady-appropiate conversations, ans this is as close to an official break as you're going to get.

When it comes to double dates or so, they might see it as a good time to catch up with each other and how they think their dates are going. Maybe say what they think of each other's dates. Just like men enjoy the play-by-play in sports, ladies enjoy a play-by-play on dates, but it's very rude to do it right in front of the guy.

It might also be just sympathetic companionship, because some bathrooms are filthy and all broken, and another person there could be very convenient for purse holding or helping shutting the door and other stuff like that.

So, basically, there could be many reasons for that; it's not a ritual or a secret plan!

Wonder about that!
