A female friend of mine (more of an acquaintance, really) once said that she’d like to take out a restraining order against this fella she was dating. They had a date to attend a wedding together, but a few days beforehand, she chose to back out. Unfortunately, she decided to communicat e this by not returning his phone calls, which caused lots of problems.
Y’see, he kept calling and calling. I’m guessing that’s because they already had a date arranged, and because she didn’t tell him that she wanted to cancel. The gal eventually got sick of his calls, and so she considered taking out a restraining order.
This got me thinking. Can one reasonably obtain a restraining order in such circumstances? There was no threat of violence or misconduct involved, so this doesn’t seem reasonable. Heck, if I were the gal, I would just speak to the guy and explain that I didn’t want to see him anymore!
