I just ended a 3 year relationship and the other person is not taking it well. It has about 3 weeks now. The 1st week was fine, but after the 2nd things started to get out of hand, and she ended up having to spend week 3 in jail. I thought things would get better and that we could both move on. I also thought the week in jail would be just what she needed to cool down. I was wrong. Now that my ex is out of jail, and living a building away from me, things are getting tense again. A friend convinced me that things were fine and that and that my ex was moving on, but I could tell that was not the case. 3 friends of mine have told me that all the time they spend with her she is talking about me and that yesterday she told them that she is still planning a way for her to mess me up. They think I should get a restraining order. I thought about getting one when she was in jail, but I was hoping that she would come out of jail with this new out look, and didn’t want to seem like I was still mad by having a RO waiting for her. I don’t fear her doing physical harm to me and I think if she tried to hurt me physically I could handle. What I do fear is her hurting herself or her property and blaming me for it. Just a week and a half ago, I awoke to her in my room with a knife, and told me that she wanted me to kill her, and if I didn’t she was about to end her life in the next 48 hours. She ran out and by the time I got dressed and went to look for her she was gone. After looking for her for a 1 ½ days, the police, came by looking for me because she filed a report of me stalking her because I left 3 phone calls asking her not to kill herself. She is not a very truthful person so I can’t really put it past her to try to do something to get at me. Is it worth getting a restraining order? And if so should I?
