If I were you I would give the mutual friends an ultimatum-- either shun this jerk from the Circle of Friends or kiss Threadkiller and Gloria goodbye forever. Until the druggie/sexually-abusive/disrespectful ass-clown gets down on his damned hands and knees, apologizes profusely to both you AND Gloria, and realizes what a dillweed he's been to everyone involved he doesn't deserve positive social interaction with mature adults.
Edit: Oh, and I'm also an English major! We get all the ladies in the end... I may mean that more ways than one ;D

I really gotta give it to you, your self control in that situation seems outstanding. Better than a fair few people here (me included).
I think you did the right thing. If you did get into the fight with him, what would you have in the end? Self-satisfaction (which isn't even guaranteed - you might end up regretting it, just like you're regretting not kicking this guy's ass), but the loss of respect from your peers and your girlfriend, as well as potential trouble with the cops. I honestly think you walked out of the situation the better man, easily. This other guy obviously came off as the douchebag he his by spitting on your face, twice. You have his girl. You have respect from your peers and others on this board. If you did kick his ass, the situation would have been very different.

You should have Kevin Steen'd him and kissed him with a sick grin on your face. Would have completely thrown him off of everything he was thinking, giving him the impression you're out of your mind and he, in turn, doesn't want to mess with you.

You did the right thing. Sometimes doing the right thing is the hardest thing to do. I can imagine your anger (I've been spit on and it's one of the most insulting things that can happen to a person) but you rose above it and came out the winner in the long run. I know it may be cold comfort, but really - it showed what a colossal ass he is to all your pals. You won by walking away. It may not feel like it, but you did. You got the girl, you got the right to say you stood by your word..so you're the winner here.
Just one thing: for the love of God, if this guy ever comes into your life again - do NOT let him back in. Ever. He's bad news and a total idiot and waste of your time.
