My ex girlfriend and I both have restraining orders on each other for a year. We have mutual friends around the area, and I am wondering if I will get in trouble for talking about her, or what I think about her to a mutual friend. I know she will probably find out what I am saying eventually, because she's a gossip queen. But, legally, would that be construed as "communicating" with her? I don't want to have anything to do with her, in fact, I think she's psyco, and I think people need to know that before they get hurt like I did, and am, getting hurt by her. Can I talk to her parents and appologize for what I did to the house we were living in, when I was trying to get away from her? Can I talk to her friends and just ask them how they are doing, as long as I don't talk about her, or ask about her? I'm afraid she is talking crap about me, and slandering me all over the place.. is there anything I can do about that? Can I ask what she has said about me?

My response:

It is an accepted principal of "Freudian" psychology that "people have a need to talk." Whether or not you would be breaking any laws, my best advice to you is don't talk. When you hear yourself talking about her, just stop. Fight the urge, change the subject, and understand that there is no value in it. Even if you hear about her talking about you, change the subject because in the final analysis, it doesn't matter.
