Bad advice. Pick her up? Stand in the back row? He'll just adjust his game plan and find other ways to make a bad situation worse. Seriously, the only way this is going to end is badly. He has to man up and defend his gf and his honor. Put this guy in his place and make sure that place is no where near his girl. Common and very effective measures are ... Give him a beatingBat HimPistol Whip (very, very effective)If these don't work and he keeps persuing (harrasing) your girl against her wishes, I've always been a big fan of cutting off a thumb or taking a nine iron to the ankle. If you are affraid of blood ... use the 9 iron.wow, a little violent aren't we? She still needs continue making the point that she does not want the ex around. Maybe he thinks he can get her back by just hanging around. Maybe he's a homicidal maniac. Either way she needs to send a clear message. BTW I agree that he should make his presence known, maybe not so violently during their first encounter.It's Friday, can we PLEASE get some action going in this thread. Step up Loco and provide some entertainment!Alright ... as always, you represent the voice of reason and make sense. I don't think he should walk into the first encounter swinging even though my post made it sound that way.I do think he needs to approach this guy personally and make a very clear and definitive statement that neither of them are willing to deal with his presence.You are right, I would approach him very directly but gentlemanly the first time.(If you see him a second time) The second time you see him should be when you resort to more convincing tactics.
