They weren't repeat hookups by the way (and in fact the two girls don't even seem to like me much anymore either, but not because I was rude to them during or after).

Interestingly enough, you've posted questions referring to this summer as both a 1L summer and a 2L summer, you're not posting from the west coast, and you've also asked about whether it will be weird if you don't drink at SA events because of a medical condition, but now you've only got drunk once. Any explanation?

Yep...I regret posting seeking some actually legitimate advice. I knew it was too much to hope for. You do know that it is possible for a woman to make advances on a guy right?

My quibble wasn't with the notion that women might come onto you. Rather, it was the with the cliched "I gave in to temptation" line, which made your post sound more like a fictional story than a real-life event. When I hit those words, it made it really hard to suspend my disbelief.

Troll on, bro.

OP is so hated that his law firm has exiled him to entirely different geographic location. Or perhaps one of his hookups got a 1,000-mile-radius restraining order.

If you are somehow not trolling, you've got some introspection to do. This post perfectly captures why you'd be disliked and how you'd manage to not understand why.

See, that's why we have anon, so people won't be identified. And trolling isn't allowed. And you're either really socially obtuse, or trolling.

But if you're serious, when I posted before, I wasn't being judgmental. I was pointing out that yes, actually, hooking up with two of your classmates in the first couple of weeks can definitely have social repercussions. You need to realize that.

I'll say this for OP: that he bothered to delete/edit all of his posts ITT does at least suggest that this was not a complete troll. Mmmmm....

I'm honestly not sure if he's a troll but he has definitely received this kind of response before and deleted the OP before. We need to start quoting these things.

This is my last post and then I'm done. Just want to thank you all for making me (somehow) feel even shittier than I already did. I came on here and posted in a nice, calm, respectful manner and laid out what happened. I never got aggressive or rude. And what happens? You all decide to have a big laugh at my stressful situation (including the moderator of course, which is really just hilarious that the person who is supposed to be the neutral one is also being abusive) and shit all over me. Thanks a lot. By the way this was all a true story. Sorry but I don't derive any pleasure from anonymously trolling on the internet like you all apparently do. Have a good night.

Seriously op, if both your posting in this topic and in the last major topic you created are indicative of how you behave in real life, I would recommend some self reflection about your self awareness in order to improve your relationships.

Love how the moderators go after me for some reason, but of course let the trolling and anon abuse against me go unabashed. Thanks mods.
