Despite being over six feet tall and muscular, Dahmer never responded to bullying. During the psychological evaluation in preparation for his trial, he recalled an event where he was hit on the back of the neck with a billy club, a blackjack or a fist (he recalled the weapon differently in separate interviews).
“I was up visiting a friend’s, and was walking back home in the evening, and saw these three seniors, seniors in high school approaching. I just had a feeling that something was going to happen, and sure enough, one of them just took out a billy club and whacked me on the back of the neck. For no reason. Didn’t say anything, just hit somebody. And I ran.”
Classmate John Backderf later stated that he often wondered why Dahmer never fought back, but expressed that he was fearful of being in his way if Dahmer ever “snapped”.
Oh, the years burn…
While Dylan quit Blackjack to work at Computer Renaissance, Eric was taking a second job at Tortilla Wraps in Littleton with his other friend, Nate Dykeman. There he met the girl he would become later infatuated with, Jennifer Laufenberg. His job references included Sue Klebold and his favorite English teacher, Jason Webb. Eric was a good worker and he dressed appropriately for his job. Eric was recommended a raise because he worked hard and was punctual.
On the other hand, Dylan included in his resume that he built his computer and helped building friends computers. His reference was Rich Long, Columbine computer instructor.

"Satanists need to have more faith than Christians, because Christ was seen and felt. Lucifer has never felt the need to be seen, but in everyone’s soul he can be felt."
― Richard Ramirez
He [Jeffrey Dahmer] rarely talked to his defending counsel [Gerald Boyle], but sat compliantly between Wendy Patrickus and Ellen Ryan [Boyle’s associates] day after day, answering monosyllabically when either addressed him. These two young ladies in fact knew him very well by now. They had seen him on a regular basis for over six months and had shared the gradual revelation of his iniquity. They had talked to him longer and more often than anyone else. […]
It took a long time for she and Miss Patrickus to gain Dahmer’s confidence, or rather his relaxed acceptance of them. At the beginning, he had behaved as someone totally unfamiliar with human contact. He did not know how to find it or deal with it, especially with two young women. He was docile, polite and accommodating, but in no way socially forthcoming. They felt that he was capable of friendship, and had never been offered it before. So they preserved, quite apart from the demands of the job, in getting him to relax without bullying. After six months they conceded that he was “a nice guy” […].
He would pay gracious, slightly embarrassed compliments, such as (to Miss Patrickus) “You look nice today”, or (to Miss Ryan) “That’s a snappy necklace you’re wearing.” He was like a novice in learning the social graces. Ellen and Wendy said it was “lovely to see him open out and relate.” For his part, Jeff Dahmer told them "You know, you are the closest friends I have had in my entire life."
