Dennis went so far as to recount the meeting with Andrea to his fellow dorm mates his own version of events. Andrea approached him and requested for his phone number, according to his account.
Dennis was forced to reveal his lies when Margot and Andrea made him inebriated. As a drunk and terrified Dennis confessed to Andrea, he was smitten with her and approached her on the plane.
In order for Andrea to become interested in him, he interacted with her and lied about his occupation and education. People respected Dennis from Yale, he said, and that made it easier for him to break the ice.
