How do you get rid of someone who doesn't understand the meaning of no? I'm not even sure this belongs in the relationships forum because I never had nor wanted a relationship with this guy. I've known him 5-6 years and thought I rid myself of him a couple times but every so often he returns, like this weekend. I think he finds new women to haunt and then when that doesn't work out he's back to stopping by my house. He hasn't done anything the cops would take seriously, just keeps stopping by my house and being overly friendly when I see him out and about. I don't really think he'd do anything stupid but he's still creeping me out. He'd have to get through 5 dogs at my house and he's scared to death of one of them especially, but he lives just a few blocks from me, so I can't avoid running into him sometimes when I don't have the dogs. Today he came into the backyard when I doing some stuff outside. I had stupidly left the gate open and the dogs were all inside the house. Maybe it's time I start carrying mace again like I did years back when I worked in a bad part of town and had to leave work, sometimes alone, at midnight. But I'd rather just get him to scram permanently without waiting to see if it goes far enough that I need to defend myself.
