I think you're overestimating the effectiveness of a restraining order. It doesn't conjure up a magical force field around a person's house that can't be crossed. Crazy people find ways to do crazy things.

People may be overestimating a restraining order in that way but if he disobeys it once you can give him a little example of how easy it will be to blow his life apart if he does it again. That's when he'll get serious about it.

OP needs to do something, press charges or file for an order of protection, anything to get it on the books that this guy is a creep! It may help to keep him away from her but it will also help the next girl!!

maybe sometimes violence isn't the answer, but in this case it would help. Guys victimize women they think they can control, a punch to the face or any other show of standing up for yourself, of being strong might be enough to keep him from coming back to do worse!

I've never heard of someone stealing toilet paper as a memorable item. If it were me doin' the creep, I'd steal every sock that had a matching pair. It would leave them with matchless socks, and, like a broken heart, would give me a half and them the other half; leaving them incomplete without me :) Not that I've ever done something like that... ( .-.)

Screw the restraining order it is just a piece of paper. It is time to either change your locks and get a dog, or move. In fact moving and getting a good dog is an excellent idea. Taking a few self defense lessons and having a male friend or family member record your answering machine message wouldn't be a bad idea either.

I don't think moving is a good idea. I mean she shouldn't have to change her whole life around just because creepy ex is doing stuff he shouldn't. But the restraining order and self defense sounds good.

She doesn't need to change cities just houses or apartments. Would you rather she end up raped, beaten, mutilated or murdered if he decides to ignore the restraining order and break in again? There was just a case in Massachusetts where the mayor of Sommerville's brother beat and attempted to rape a woman who had 12 restraining orders out against him. A piece of paper is worthless.
