In the end, it really is just a piece of paper

Yeah, a restraining order only works if the person is afraid of going to jail, but now he can go to jail just for calling her or showing up at her house. He can go to jail before he hits someone else.

#57: I was gonna ask how you came to have such a callous disregard for human life, but then I checked your profile and saw that you're 13 and therefore have no perspective on anything. OP's psycho ex is psycho and needs to be dealt with, but trying to kill somebody is never an appropriate response. Your attitude is naive, dangerous, and completely absurd. Best of luck with puberty!

#57: Sincerest apologies. I ran your post together with #59 and presumed you meant more violence than you did, when you specified a warning shot. My bad for reading badly. Still don't think guns are a good suggestion though.

Warning shots are a bad idea. They're illegal, not to mention dangerous. You could hurt or kill an innocent bystander with a falling bullet or ricochet. Never fire your weapon unless you mean to hit a specific target. You're actually much more likely to go to jail for firing a warning shot than for shooting and killing someone. In Florida it's illegal just to brandish your weapon. Guns are extremely dangerous, and should not be treated casually. Their purpose is to kill, not to intimidate. That being said, considering how violent OP's ex is, I think it would actually be a good idea for OP to carry a gun, with the proper licensing and training, of course. It could save her life. And if her ex is the type of guy who attacks strangers because he's suffering from the delusion of having property rights to another human being, then I'm less concerned about persevering his life, and more concerned about the safety of those around him.

62: I don't really appreciate that last sentence.....it makes me feel like as though I'm being treated as a child, when in reality I'm smart and mature unlike the other girls in my grade who have their boobs and asses hanging out :/

I also don't have a disregard for human life, I myself have dealt with a couple of stalkers myself over social media (not exactly the same as OPs situation) I feel very violated if someone like OPs boyfriend was clinging onto me, if not a shot, then pepper spray.

Yes... a piece of paper that will put him in jail if he goes close to the OP. Even if he's willing to breach the order, he won't be able to go close to her once he's locked up.

That's sad that he followed you to a flower shop OP, you should get a restraining order if he does it again...
