That's if the guy doesn't cut his penis off.

This is probably your best course of action to defend yourself if necessary.

Still, if he violates it in any way, he can get into trouble, a restraining order is better than not having one.

Okay, thanks. I'll inquire about it when I speak with the police later on. I'm in Ontario, Canada, fwiw. And yes, I'm well aware that it won't physically stop anything, but it would be reassuring to know that if he walked into my work, anyone could call and have him arrested. I'm more worried about the immediate physical threat of an attack if he were to show up unannounced and try something. But I'm aware that short of a gun (which isn't a possibility because I'm in canada) or a 24/7 bodyguard, there isn't really much I can do.

So does the OP have his own place?

Going to get a RO with a note? Doubtful.

incidentally i'm willing to bet that she won't file any restraining order and he won't come after you.

looking forward to the 2012 "I can't believe I just spent the past two years of my life with this girl" thread.


As I mentioned earlier, I have known her about a year and a half, and we have been developing feelings for each other for much longer than 2 months, so I'm not sure In regards to b), me leaving now wouldn't change his feelings towards me, so it's a moot point.

I've been considering taking up some form of martial art for a couple months now...this may be the spark I need to do it.

No, I don't. I'm living with family while I go to school. (P.s., not a trust-fund kid. Broke as hell, pay room/board, work 20ish hours a week, pay for my own schooling, no car, straight As and motivated/hardworking). And yeah, as mentioned I don't know how a RO works, just that I'll inquire about it.

+1, haven't read past this post, clearly, a 19 y.o. boy shouldn't be thinking about love and can certainly get over it.

You do not know in any way that you're going to be together for a long period of time. You're a 19 year old kid. She's a mentally fucked up 21 year old kid. She's not worth it. You need to focus on going to school (if you're already there, then take more or harder classes) and making something out of your life. Not fucking around with bullshit like this.

At what age, exactly, is someone allowed to fall in love?

Maybe I'll look back in 10 years and regret, but on the other hand I'm quite sure I won't. I'm in school doing all the right things, and having a gf isn't/wont affect that. She's not mentally fucked up, she's very realistic and down to earth.

Good question. I didn't choose for it to happen, and I can't just throw it away (not that I'd want to). I guess it's just human nature to look down on people younger than yourself.

I don't think anyone is looking down on you,I think people are speaking out of experience. Believe you me, you will forget this girl in no time and it will probably be in your best interest.
