(AP) A judge has ruled that a 24-year-old Canadian man is not allowed to have a girlfriend for the next three years.
The ruling came after Steven Cranley pleaded guilty on Tuesday to several charges stemming from an assault on a former girlfriend.
Cranley, who has been diagnosed with a dependent personality disorder, attacked his girlfriend in an argument after their breakup.
He tried to prevent her from phoning the police by cutting her phone cord and punched and kicked her. He finally stabbed himself with a butcher knife when police did arrive, puncturing his aorta.
Doctors say Cranley has difficulty coping with rejection and runs a high risk to re-offend if he becomes involved in another intimate relationship.
Justice Rhys Morgan said Cranley "cannot form a romantic relationship of an intimate nature with a female person.
"That is the only way I can see the protection of the public is in place until you get the counseling you need."
Cranley had already served 146 days in pre-trail custody, which Morgan said was enough jail time in this case.
His lawyer says the no girlfriend order is the first of its kind that he has encountered.
But he can still have a wife, right?
(puncture your own aorta - ouch)
Guess he’ll have to go homo.
What is that?

Dude got off light - it’s easier not to have a girlfriend for 3 years than to have one!
“Guess hell have to go homo.”
I was just getting ready to type that... Judge didn’t say he couldn’t have a man. Guess that’s one way a judge can promote the Agenda.
>>What is that?<<
Newspeak for “clingy” or “needy”.

Welfare state mindset.
No kidding. I wish a judge had ordered a sentence like this on me about two years ago. I’d have a lot more money in my wallet, and a lot less bitterness in my heart.
Ha ha ha good one! LOL
I know what you mean, I have been married 34 years, but if dear hubby died tomorrow I wouldn’t even date. Too many bad guys out there. And you guys are running into too many bad gals out there. Scary indeed. Good luck!
Wouldn’t it be easier to just, I dunno, LOCK HIM UP FOR THREE YEARS? Jeez.
Clingy is like when you come out of the bathroom with a piece of toilet paper stuck to your shoe and trailing behind you for all the world to see. Somewhat embarrassing, and undesirable (unless you're drunk).
Needy is like trying to watch a 2 hour Docudrama on a Pay TV in an airport waiting lounge (do they still have those things?) and have to keep feeding quarters into it every 10 mins. Somewhat costly, and undesireable (unless you're drunk).
Dude got off light - its easier not to have a girlfriend for 3 years than to have one!
And if it keeps him out of Jail-
It’s easier to not have a girlfriend for three years than to BE one!
Is this gal going to have to live in a shelter now to get away from him? What’s to stop him from tracking her down and God forbid...finish the job?
It’s not you, it’s me. Well it’s really not me, you see there’s this judge.......
