I am a woman of 28. Dad is 58. My neighbour and I have never seen eye to eye.

He has done many things to bully me, including walking towards me aggressively in the street, scaring my dog, playing loud music late at night and generally being a pain.

We ignore one another now but I am scared and on edge whenever he is nearby. He is 33.

My dad, on the other hand, is friendly with him and has forgiven him for his behaviour.

He doesn’t seem to understand my problem.

I feel he should have my back, not cosy up to this man.
