Outrageously stupid. How dumb can dumb get. How can a judge e in his right mind presuppose what dating individuals will do before a date? Do we all have to buy one of these stupid protective orders and hand it to a date before you agree to date? Obscene and stupid.

If some woman or man is not smart enough not to date someone can't ward off is not fit to date. Harassment after dating is one thing but communal protective orders passed back and forth on a dinner date is not my idea of romantic or common sense. If there was a word that makes dumb even drummer that deserves a place in my vocabulary in describing the nonsense of what courts think they are supposed to do. Every time a judge signs/approves one of these orders is writing a law and that is illegal for him to do when there has been no crime. And if a crime has been committed then the police are playing dumb in not doing their job.

@ My2Cents: "Outrageously stupid" defines your comment perfectly.

Protective orders for dating relationships are protective orders given when one of the individuals involved in the dating relationship has been threatened or abused by the other individual - they are not something automatically given when two people decide to date.

You really should at least attempt to understand what you are commenting about.
