This self-styled nerd’s ‘manquisition’ of a woman had the entire internet shaking its head
There’s a subReddit called ‘Am I The Asshole’ in which people check in to make sure they did the right thing. Or, as is often the case, the very, very wrong thing.
And occasionally one of the tales will go viral because it’s very funny, or a total facepalm, or both.
And this is a classic of the genre, shared on Twitter by @AITA_reddit.
And here are our favourite responses it prompted on Twitter.

I don’t know what I love more:
That his friend group called him out
That his friend group chose her over him
That his brother called him out
Or that apparently in his gatekeeping he got a piece of trivia wrong and the girl called him out.
Wait, I like the last one the best.

it will never not infuriate me that geek men think women are faking an interest to impress them. it’s so casually egotistical.
