" My advice would be: don't be such a university student about this. I'm saying yes to the charcuterie plate and no to the garlic bread.
But the fact that Jessica was so calculating definitely crosses the line between going out with Andre because he asked you out and at least you’ll get a free meal out of it, and telling Sean you can’t go out with him because you’ve already gone out five times and he might actually want more when all you want is free food.They made spreadsheets with names, photos, and profile details of each guy who took them out for drinks and/or dinner and set two ground rules: they would always let each other know where they were going for the night and never let guys pick them up at their apartment.The backlash to the Insider’s story was so strong that the site had to disable comments and conceal the woman’s identity (her real name is Jessica Sporty).Let's give it some time before we get all psychoanalysis Freudian Oedipus-complex shame-based egocentric feminist on this one.
