She Thought College Was About Learning and Friendship, But One Classmate’s Obsession Dragged Her Into an Unwanted Spotlight.

In a competitive college setting where internships are the golden ticket, the Original Poster (OP) faces an unsettling ordeal with a fellow student’s relentless advances. As tensions rise, social media becomes the battleground, drawing the attention of college authorities and deeply dividing their peer community. With her reputation and emotional well-being on the line, will OP find justice or regret?

OP is a dedicated college student navigating the pressures of securing internships, vital to achieving high-paying jobs. In this competitive environment, she finds camaraderie with her peers. Yet, amidst this, an unexpected relationship challenge emerges.

The Friendly Classmate

Ron, a seemingly friendly classmate, begins to engage OP in casual conversations. Their interactions are initially innocent. However, Ron’s intentions soon become more apparent as he begins to flirt. When Ron finally works up the nerve to ask her out, OP declines.

Wanting to clear any misunderstandings, OP apologizes to Ron in case she unintentionally led him on. Expecting things to return to normalcy, she’s left shocked when he chooses to ghost her. This silent treatment, however, is short-lived.

A Second Attempt

Two days pass, and Ron is back, once again propositioning OP. Confused as to why he thinks she would change her mind, she gently reminds him of her earlier response. Ron claims he was giving her time to reconsider, expecting gratitude in return.

The Vicious Circle

The hostility doesn’t end there. Ron, unable to reach OP directly, gets his friends to continue the offensive onslaught of insults and lewd commentary. Feeling cornered, OP decides to make her side of the story public.

The Unveiling on Social Media

The Tables Turn

One reader said, “You should complain about Professor Paul, whose behavior is appalling. It wasn’t you that affected Ron’s career; it was Ron with his harassing behavior.”

Another Commenter Thinks

Another responder wrote, “Abusers rely on the silence of their victims. If he didn’t want to get kicked out for harassing other students, he shouldn’t have harassed other students.”

A Third View on The Story

A different person stated, “He destroyed his life. You didn’t. You were just a victim. You owe him nothing. You did nothing wrong. There is nothing a woman can do to ‘lead someone on’ that justifies being harassed.”

A Final Perspective on the Matter

Another reader commented, “The ‘what about him’ argument kills me. The perpetrators become the victims, and it’s disgusting. It enables people to keep up the behavior.”
