Advice For Break-up - March 3rd 2013, 01:31 AM

Hey guys,

A friend... well sort of friend... it's hard to tell... anyway her boyfriend just broke up with her last night. She's really upset about it and it pretty much came out of nowhere. She said he was really upset over it too but had to do it because he "couldn't trust her anymore". Anyway so when I go back to school tomorrow I know I'm going to need to help comfort her. They were really close and had gone pretty far and it really seemed like they were going to be together for quite a while. Advice please?

I could dwell on my problems... But I'd rather make a milkshake...

The best thing you can do is just let her know that you're there if she needs someone to talk to. You want to give her some space and not push her to talk to you though. Chances are she's going to be sad for a little while, so it's best to let her come to you on her own when she needs you. You can't help her if she doesn't want help after all.
One idea would be to put together a package to send to her. You could put her favorite candy in it, a good movie, and a stuffed animal for example. It's a nice gesture that shows you care about her and are thinking about her.
Good job on being a good friend to her.

And here you are living, despite it all.
