You guys aren't that close.
And when you are hanging out all he does is complain about their ex.
The complaining makes me uncomfortable. I accidentally slipped a " Nobody wants to hear that."
I know, worst friend over.
I don't know how to make a guy feel better.
I mean what can I do?

Its obvious your friend just needs someone to talk to, maybe he doesn't have that right now. I would be a good friend, listen for a bit, then at a certain point, the complaining would have to stop. I would give him advice, but he continues to complain, I would be forced to straight up tell him how uncomfortable he is making me feel. I would let him know that I enjoy his company, however...it is difficult to constantly hear him talk about the breakup...ALL of the time. I think by being honest, he will get the picture for sure and think twice before he brings up the topic.
But its clear he is still hurting from the situation.
