New York: A lawyer for a man charged with stalking Caroline Kennedy`s daughter says his client believes he was only offering his love when he showered her with flowers, balloons and romantic e-mails.

Attorney Gerald Hertz says his client was not trying to threaten Tatiana Schlossberg. Hertz said his client "just didn`t get it."

A judge yesterday ordered a psychiatric examination for 41-year-old Naeem Ahmed to determine his mental fitness for court.

Prosecutors say Ahmed sent more than 40 messages to the Yale University student and her parents over two years. They have charged him with misdemeanors.
