Serious Talk? How about, hand me that key and we are over. There can be no valid reason for him to have that. Also you might want to check for cameras, get the locks changed, and totally take an inventory of all the items in your house ( that means your unmentionables also). Freaking creep gives guys a bad name.
In this case, I think dumping the guy is very appropriate. This guy is definitely obsessive and doesn't understand boundaries. And on top of that, he's sneaky. How the hell did he get a key to OP's home without her knowing??? Sounds to me like OP could be in physical danger with this guy, but in any case, who would want to date someone like that?
Change the locks. Add several more locks. Never lock all of them, so than anyone trying to pick your locks will always be locking at least one of the locks.
I'm not sure how it happened, but at my Yiayia's house, the dead bolt key has to be turned in the opposite direction than the normal lock on the doorknob. Maybe they could figure out a way to alternate the locks into a pattern, like left right, left right :P
@10, there is nothing clever about this myth. I only have a limited experience picking locks, but I always could feel whether I was locking or unlocking a dead bolt. Also, after you have all the tumblers picked, you can slam the bolt and hear which way it hit a hard stop. If it is coming in or if it is going out is easy to distinguish. Lastly, buy pick resistant locks. It is much cheaper and more secure than buying multiple locks and keeping part of them locked. I know you used it as a joke, but this has been circulating the web as helpful advice.
