My boyfriend exgirlfriend filed for an protective order and it was dismissed/denied but we have to go to court. She is saying I am texting her from a fake app number. No messages are threatening just about me and her ex boyfriend. I have threatening messages from her and her friends as well as post they made of me on social networks. What will happen at court?
No one can predict what will happen in court we don't know what fact you are omitting from your story. The answer to your question is "yes", it's certainly possible.

The basis for protective orders is that the person seeking the order reasonably feels threatened - look up this statute on line: § 19.2-152.10. Protective order. Judges have broad discretion to grant and tailor these to the facts of each case.
