#36 A fictional character put it best. "The law is only a protection when everyone agrees to be bound by it." OP, if I were you I'd talk to your ex and let him know. It sounds like you may have a case of guilt on your hands. Since I don't know the details of why you broke up with him, I'll offer my sincerest "good luck."
I know people aren't generally fond of the whole, "Time for a new boyfriend!" thing, but I feel that's exactly what needs to be said right now...
How bad was the break up if you're now fearing for your life? Seriously though, if his temper is that scary, you should take precautions to ensure your safety.
I've dealt with a couple situations similar to this, where the guy's temper is unbelievably scary, and each time it's boiled down to mental illness. For me, it's a gray area to say such reactions are entirely their fault when there is something wrong with them mentally. Definitely a scary situation for OP, though. A knife under the pillow might not be a bad idea.
41- True! I didn't immediately think "gun" because they make me so nervous. I'm always afraid of accidentally hurting myself with one. 43- The ex being a sociopath is plausible, definitely. I just generally associate murder with anger, or other strong emotions. If the ex were to murder OP due to a breakup though, it would likely be considered a crime of passion, which would indicate that he does in fact have a spectrum of emotions (unlike sociopaths who are generally emotionless).
Actually 47, it would not be a crime of passion. Crime of passion has to happen immediately, with no time to contemplate vengeance. Typically crime of passion murders will happen right when the girl or guy ends the relationship, or if one partner comes home and catches the other in be with someone else. Considering the fact that op had time to fall asleep and dream about it, the breakup at least happen a couple of hours before, therefore crime of passion could not be used, it would be premeditated.
A number of commenters suggested weapons. I was advised to have one only if I got well-trained and was willing to use it (not as easy as it sounds, and takes time and money). Otherwise, you are just giving the bad guy a handy weapon to use against you. Self-defense training is a good choice, with or without an immediate concern or further weapons training.
Instead he could end up becoming a cereal killer. Better hide your Frosted Flakes just in case.
Thats creepy. If people ever gave me that vibe, I would never talk to them, let alone date them.
Perhaps you should get a restraining order.... This is very creepy and you could get really hurt! :(
