Q. My ex-boyfriend has been stalking and threatening me for over two months. I’ve filed a police report and everything, but whenever he shows up at my door and I call the police, he’s gone before they arrive. I live alone and my family is in another state. I’m a prisoner in my home, because I’m afraid to go out. I take a cab to work every day because I’m scared to death.
A. Get some protection, like some pepper spray, and keep it in your hand every time you go out the door. You also may want to look into taking some self-defense classes, or moving back home with your parents. It’s always best to be safe than sorry.
Q. One night while spending the night at my best friend’s house, I ran across her diary while she was in the shower. I opened it up and it immediately fell open to a page where she had written about her romantic feelings for my boyfriend. It appeared to be one-sided, but I’m furious. I haven’t really talked to her much since because I’m perplexed. I want to confront her, but I don’t want her to know I read her diary. What would you do?
A. Leave it be. You’re right…you shouldn’t have stuck your nose where it didn’t belong. It’s best to keep it to yourself…for now and just observe.
