What is a good way to try to help a friend whose girlfriend just broke up with him?

We're on break from school, which means I'm 20 hours away from him, so I can't do a lot of the normal things I might try to do to cheer him up/distract him. Any ideas?

  • There is nothing you can do more than give him the space to navigate the pain and let him know you will be on the other side. There is no quick fix. Just let him know he is still valued by you and that once break is over you will bring him some gift or food or just be with him so he isn't lonely. Making him talk about it, or constantly trying to make him feel better only reminds him of the issue.

  • Other than letting him know you're there for him, just being your normal self and a friend is all you can do. Most guys want space and time to work it out themselves so if he doesn't want to talk about it with you, don't push or take it personally. We guys are very different that way then you women are. Even though we probably should lol, we often don't want to talk about it at all.

  • try and make him laugh i guess, can't really give you advice from what someone did for me, cuz she's honest about everything, and don't hold back, even when i'm feeling down, but for me having a person like her, helps me, and she's good at making me laugh, it won't be a permanent solution though, but it will be a nice little break from the thoughts, and depressed state of being for him
