Helping my friend - January 9th 2009, 05:23 PM

I wasn't sure where to post this but...

My friend, who we'll call S had a girlfriend for over two years, it was an online relationship, they've never met in person, despite that, S loved her girlfriend a lot, she would always talk about her. It was cute.

Today, her girlfriend broke up with her.

I know how she must feel, and I have no idea what to say to her to help it. But I want to help her.

If you could help me help my friend, that would be more than wonderful. Thanks.

I think it's not a case of knowing what to say in situations like this- ther'es no magic sentence that can take away the hurt. What I do is just be there to support her, even if she just needs to vent with you just listening or to cry on your shoulder...be her rock for the next few days while she gets the worst of it out of her system. From there, I'd try and get her to have a day or two your, just relaxing and having a good time to try and put her in a good mood and distract her mind from what's happened with her boyfriend. But the most important thing is to just be there for her and to listen to her...it's not necissarily offering advice, but just being a friendly ear.
