Boyfriend's Uncle. - February 9th 2009, 10:21 PM

So my new boyfriend's uncle died two days ago, and he found out while we were still on our date. He texted me yesterday saying he was feeling really sad about his uncle and stuff. I told him that if he wanted to talk about it, I was there for him, but other than that, I don't really know what to do or say. He said he was much of a talker about that kind of stuff and I don't what to do something or say something wrong.

Who do you carry that torch for, my young man?
Do you believe in anything?
Or do you carry it around just to burn things down?

Meet me tonight on the turnpike my darling,
where we believe in everything.
If we sweat all these debts then we're sure to drown,
so let's strap ourselves up to this engine now
with our God who we found laying under the back seat.

hey steph.

this coming from the mouth (or hands ) of a guy ... the knowledge that someone dear to them is willing to support them and talk to them no matter what ( and you're his girlfriend, it'll definitely make him feel loads better ) is already enough to change the world around . just stick with him more often and talk to him even more often than usual because he definitely needs it now.

the two of you should start doing things together more often now (movies or anything ) because there is already a gap in his life that needs to be bridged in order to really make him feel better.

i know you CAN make him feel better because you're his girlfriend. and to top that off, i think that you're a very sweet girlfriend because you care so deeply about

just remember in case you need some help, we're always up for it.

Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!

I pretty much agree with what Darrenboy said.
Stand by him and be there when he needs you. Death is hard and he's going to want someone to be around so he doesn't have to think about it too much. But be careful, he does need time to recover from it instead of just covering it up.
Good luck and take care.

Just be there for him. My boyfriend's grandfather passed away a little over a month ago. I was talking to him when he found out. I wasn't sure what to say or do either. It's a hard situation to be in. Just let him know that you're there for him and you care. I didn't bring the subject up with my boyfriend.. but when he did I listened. He texted me after the viewing and funeral to let me know how things went. He was more upset than he orignally thought. Later he told me it really helped that I was there to just listen.
