You totally did the right thing by walking away. If the cops came and the guy chose to be an asshole about it, you could've easily ended up being deported, and you'd never get a visa to visit the US again.
Props for exercising self-control. No douche at party is worth screwing up your plans for.

If you are questioning why you bother training if you are going to walk away from fights this little quote should bring back some of your self respect:
"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence.”

He's mouthing on you a little so you think it's okay to start a fight with him?
I have no problem with that. But, if you start a fight, you have to be prepared to finish it.
The other guy has to walk away. The other guy has to back down, apologise and shake your hand. The other guy has to look down at his shoes and offer to buy you and your date a drink.
That's how it works.
It doesn't matter if you don't throw a punch, a kick or a poorly-chosen submission.
You have to be prepared to, and the other guy has to see that.
If he throws as well, you're in a fight.
The fact this guy was coming on to you (LOLZ) repeatedly might have given you the clue that assface wasn't going to do anything other than mouth at you.
Call him a ***** bitch and ask him what he wants to do about it. If he goes for it, then you're in a fight.
Also, can I just say, if homie decides to go to his doctors and complain of whiplash and cite the German kid that hung off his neck as a cause, you may find yourself in a little bit of trouble. I would think he has witnesses and it's hard to prove/disprove a whiplash injury.Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

Who stops to think if your gonna ruin someone else's good time? Really? I'd have just got hot blooded right there and knocked that ************ out cold.
But I would've been wrong. You did the right thing.
Squerrli's right, people get all sensitive about that ****. Say you did beat the crap out of him/choke him out, whatever; all this drama would ensue. Who knows, he goes to get some friends, gets a gun (has happened to me after a fight), goes to the hospital, whatever. Either way, it wouldn't be fun and would certainly ruin the good time. His friend is a dumbass instigator and it was good to ignore him. Morons thrive on drama.
Way to man up for the sake of yourself and your friend.

That is definetely the american way to do things. Have them start the damn fight if there has to be one. Stand there grinning and make 'em look stupid.

At any rate, he was certainly right to leave rather than start a larger fight, unless he was wearing his blade-proof kidneys that evening.

f4n4l should have gone out back and got in his Panzer...Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

all of you people fail in the awesome department.
as F4n4n can testify im pretty laid back when these kinda things happen.
just as i can testify that f4n4n doesnt back down (verbally) when being 'adressed'by some dumbass. (remember that irish guy outside that jazzthingy?)
being a ehr... well adequate person is to know when and when not to engage.
there is also this middle way i sometimes use when someone is being insistent in being an asshole to me.
never stop smiling, and keep looking relaxed.
then you slap that rnc on, but sorta laugh/grin so people around you think its a joke and you and the guy are goofing around, then hurt him really bad while you keep smiling the whole time.
then you let him go (make sure the fight is out of him) and you wink at him and say soething like: you're a tough guy, i hope it didnt hurt too much, you can take more then the average guy!'
nobody loses face, the atmosphere of the party doesnt drop, but the two of you know what happened.
