    No. If anything, it suggests something about your girlfriend.

    Keep your dignity.

    We can understand that, but actually lashing out at someone because of it will only make you look like a douche.

    Understand that your girlfriend is not property to be won, and doesn't need thuggish protection. Your girlfriend should be able to deal with her own civil issues, you don't need to step in offer violence and intruding into her life like that is illegal, inappropriate and stupid.
    Agree with the first part, bored of explaining the second.

    You, salmanftw, are preaching to the choir.

    Just to avoid being called a prick anymore for considering violence when I feel someone is trying to take something I care about away from me, here's my revised plan of action drawn from all your contributions.

    1.) Bring it up with him verbally. No need to be friendly, but not aggressive either.
    2.) Explain to him that I'd rather prefer if it didn't happen again.
    3.) Ride away on my high horse.
    4.) If he crosses the line again, get him to hit me first (legal reasons, legal reasons )
    5.) Open a can of (verbal and emotional, of course) whoop-ass and go to town.

    That seems an altogether more reasonable, civilized and efficient approach.
    What the hell are legal reasons. KNOCK HIM OUT! :cool:

    My girlfriend started university this month. Meanwhile, I've been working as an intern while I hear back from foreign unis and get my **** together (we do not live in Europe). Basically this means we have very little coinciding free time, and since I'm going on a five week trip soon we spend as much of it together as we can.

    There's some ****head at her university who I didn't like from the start, set up a facebook group and started mothering everyone, basically appointed himself president of the incoming class.

    The other day I hear that he cornered my girlfriend as she was leaving campus and lectured her for about 15 minutes on how she should be getting to know her new classmates and spend more time on campus after lectures and blahblahblah. He knows she has a boyfriend and he knows we're short on time.

    I didn't like this guy to begin with, but this seriously pissed me off. And as luck would have it, we're both invited to a party tomorrow night, at a close friend of mines (ie, there will be more people who have my back than have his).

    You need to talk to him, tell him it's not he's job to tell others what they should do with their personal time and education time. Uni is completely voluntarily, it's her choice to do as she wishes and not his.

    The fact he confronted her is very serious, because it's a aggressive stance and he should be told that he is a student and nothing more.
