Have Relationship Questions? Ask a Counselor for Answers ASAP
Once the restraining order is over, I recommend first, dropping by the police department as you did previously to let them know you would like to see if she is willing to talk to you now and then let them guide you because you don't want to just go to her house or etc. and then have the police called. Therefore, involve the police in your plans from the beginning so that everything will hopefully go smoothly. If you are able to make contact with her, share with her the personal growth you have made from your time apart and discuss this with her and then take it from there.
