I would definately make a report about it and file for a restraining order against him. I work in a police staion and people file reports about harassment all the time, so don't be paranoid, you're not the only one. And I don't know what your friends are like, but believe me, taking matters into your own hands might only make things worse.Also, you really don't want to have to deal with a weird ex-boyfirend to the point where it could become dangerous. Sadly, I've learned from experience the lengths some guys will go to win you back, and it can get brutal. My husband was almost killed in a car accident (when we first started dating) that was sort of caused by my ex-boyfriend. Thank God, he was okay, but now I never underestimate people.Right now, the police can't do much because he's never done anything to physically harm you. People make threats to others a lot, but most of the time they're just empty threats. But if he's following you, make the report, and bring it with you to the court house when you go for your restraining order. Filing a police report first definately helps for a restraining order to be granted. At least this way if he comes near you and violates the order, he can be arrested. It doesn't hurt to take precautions to protect yourself.Also, out of curiosity, why are you asking this question on parenting.com? Do you guys have a kid together? Just so you know if that is the case, you can still get a restraining order. It doesn't change. Good luck, and take care.
