    Jenny Capricoti, passion a little too frothy-Ruthie sometimes...feels like my sister come-to-life, sometimes...I hope she finds what she found, in due-time...someone, like a little more responsible than, passionate, but stable like a rock, for u, not judging, but only looking for u to electrify, your being & be that stand-out thespian to combat his inner-boring.

    Eternally, that 2o me...is what she needs to find, to leave those flashback to tremoring far-behind days, in the breezeway...not worth it. A little Latin blond hultry like JLo & Britney can get away with...but the rest who is ESFP woman, can be a little easy to take advantage of in this regard. Don't go allow yourself to go down feeling like Lemon Pine Sol, that broad in a jail cell...just because.

    ...day-break, daybreak...recurring electricity men will leave u feeling washed up like a fish named broad, examine their motives *for real,* in the early stages, before going find yourself some a little violin, raunchy fun, but for real.

    Someone boring (can be handsome), but who makes you feel like a Porsche inside; without question, will do all the pushing, and when will, you're gliding (could be on a unicorn, without trying...

    Passion, it ain't no crime. Boring men sometimes where parenthesis around their eyes. Be their antacedent, & watch the moon glow.

    $igns ain't inherently bad, but snakes iz, like, u know? Of course u do, but being that life is always a struggle; you must be in good company. I wouldn't fret, if you can find love in a boring handsome man, who'd really value u from the start, to the end, "Ruby Red," Jenny Capricoti; well, I tried to make her happy & I look a little like Berry Bonds & Alf Martin, kinda-hybrid. Hmm...I have to study now, but it feels like it's harder than it should. I hope I'm wrong, and it's right. Gotta go to the bathroom now, and study. Try.

    There I feel better, a veteran.

    It seems wrong for the article to identify the victim and give him unnecessary attention.

    Date a 28 year old guy who shockingly behaves just like a 28 year old guy. Who could have seen that coming? :roll:

    Maybe she should try dating grown ups? Might be a better match since she is 36.

    And what was this guy thinking getting involved with someone with her background?

    I don't see any correlation between the condo sale and the restraining orders. One has nothing to do with the other. Unfortunately for her, she bought at the peak.

    If she really called him at work 100 times, maybe he could have just taken her call once, let her have her say, and tell her that if she called him again, there will be consequences, restraining orders, etc.

    Who knows what the truth is but she sounds a little nuts and given her history, there may be some drug involvement as well. Another tennis prodigy story that doesn't end so well? She seems like a mess.

    Exactly. A restraining order isn't going to force her to sell. She could rent the thing out for 10 years until the market came back if she wanted to. Maybe she's still got money like that were $600k is no biggie?

    Since it's now 'all the rage' to date a young guy, started by our own Demi Moore, dating someone older - even by a few years, is, especially where I live, considered "creepy".

    So we have all these women, throwing themselves at boys, and are stunned to find he's just having fun, when these women truly believe they'll find 'forever' with someone 10-15, 20, years younger. Hey; Have fun, but when you're throwing your life away?

    I have a client in her late 40's. Her son is 15. He gets asked out ALL the time, even walking home from school, by women in their 40's and 50's - and often right in front of his mom (she gets really bent when that happens).

    I hear of stuff like this all the time where I live. Everywhere I go, the guy is almost always younger, the personal ads are all "I only date younger men..."

    Just the way it is, now.

    astonishing! I can't beleive her condo cost only a million dollars. If I had all that money , and was female I might add you would see me witha bunch of scantadlyclad maids running around my mansion. And I would be driving no porche neither.

    I mean pot? Come on! I will go out with her, I will take care of the business. She will beg me on her hands and knees to never leave.

    WE LOVE U JENNIFER

    1. The first thing one should do is to tell the unrequited person that no further contact of any kind is allowed.

    a. As early as possible, tell him/her that the relationship is over.

    b. Be as firm/assertive and direct as possible.

    c. Avoid using tones or phrases that could be misconstrued as implying a second chance or playing hard to get. Oftentimes, when the victim tries to "be nice" and to "spare the feelings" of the person being rejected, the unrequited lover sometimes perceives mixed messages.

    d. Be respectful


    2. Discipline yourself to avoid contact with the stalker: This includes ANY and ALL contact (calling to ask for someone else's phone number, counter-harassing, sending letters back) which could easily be misinterpreted by the stalker.

    3. Documentation is one of the most important aspects of stalking threat management. For a copy of a documentation form, click on the following hyperlink to view the Logbook.


    4. Several preventative measures have been listed at various websites (see Resource page)


    5. Several interventions have also been listed at various websites (see Resource page)

    A Behavioral Approach:

    B. F. Skinner's laboratory experiments on operant conditioning lent understanding into the frequency of behaviors contingent on external reinforcement. In essence, if a particular behavior is rewarded, there is an increased chance that that behavior will be repeated. Conversely, if there is no reward, the behavior decreases in frequency or is extinguished.

    Sometimes, when the reinforcement is provided intermittently (in a variable-ratio schedule), the behavior is more resistant to extinction. This is because one has learned that a reward could occur at any time and that persistence pays off. A good example of this situation is seen at the slot machines found in gambling casinos. The winnings occur randomly (intermittently) offering just enough reward to keep one pulling the lever for hours on end.

    Consider the stalker. When the stalker calls the victim several times in one evening until the victim either "gives in" (e.g., tries to reason with the stalker) or offers the stalker some attention (an affective response, such as fear, anger, or shock), these responses serve as reinforcement for the stalking behavior.

    Ending the behavior: Behaviors that are not reinforced tend to decrease or extinguish all together. But will this apply to stalking behaviors? There are examples in the literature suggesting that it can (Westrup, 1998). Harassing phone calls (i.e., threatening calls, "hang-ups", etc.) are very common stalking behaviors and will serve as a good example. As noted above, any response to the caller can be reinforcing. Resisting the urge to reason with or respond affectively is difficult, but important. However, withholding such reinforcements produce what has been described as a behavioral "spike". In other words, much like the child who is ignored and responds with a louder tantrum, the stalker may "step up" his or her behaviors. This makes it difficult persevering against the unwanted onslaught of attentions.

    Cautions: Before implementing any interventions, it is very important to have an experienced threat management team perform a risk assessment. Each stalking situation is different. It should be noted that sometimes, when a stalker is met with resistance, he or she may actually escalate the stalking behaviors.

    I love JC. She's like our Lindsay Lohan. Can't believe she's 36, though. I still think of her as a teenager.
