Should I get a restraining order? (sorry kinda of long but please read)
I was dating this man for about 6 months and we broke up about 2 months ago due to starting to fight all the time. He still calls and texts me on a hourly basis. I have told him over and over again that we are done and to move on and to find someone else to be with but he just doesn't understand. Anyways, last night I had a friend over to watch movies (the kids went to their dads house for the weekend) and this was the first time that I have even had somewhat of a date since we broke up. I say somewhat of a date because my friend that came over I have known for years and we had always talked about getting together but one of us was always in a relationship. Anyways, after watching a movie we started making out on the couch and my phone starts blowing up with texts from him but I didn't check the messages and we went into my room. Well as we are having sex my ex started to beat on my window and yell things at me that I have no right to cheat on him and calling me all kinds of names. Needless to say we stopped doing what we were doing and got dressed. I looked at my phone and I had 36 text messages from him and as I was looking at the texts another one came in that said for me to watch my back because I had cheated on him and he was going to get his friends to jump. We left my house and went and stayed at my friends house because my friend wasn't about to leave their alone. When I got home this morning and walk into my room it was trashed. My ex had somehow managed to get into my house (I think that he might have a key because all my windows are locked and there are no signs of forced entry). He went through all of my things and tipped over my dresser with my brand new tv on it (it is broken now). He destroyed my room but as far as I can tell there is nothing missing. I called the police but they said that since there are no signs of forced entry then there is nothing that I can really do. I am waiting for my friend to come back over here to change the locks on all of my doors. But I am thinking about getting a restraining order against him but then again I am scared that it will just piss him off more and still come and do something to me. I mean a restraining order is not going to protect me from him if he is mad enough ya know? It's just a piece of paper. So what would you do about it?
