Breakups stink. They’re awful.
They’re one of the worst things a girl’s gotta go through, no matter how awful
the guy was in hindsight and how awesome it is that she’s (finally) rid of him.
It just sucks—we get it, we know how you feel. Here’s how you can help your
best babe get over that guy, already.
If she’s crying…put on a
tearjerker movie (ahem, anything adapted from Nicholas Sparks works a treat)
and give her a good reason to get it all out.
If she won’t stop talking about
him…give her a deadline to get it all out. She has three more name drops
today or 10 more “why oh why did we break up” seshes before you cut her off.
If she can’t forget all the
sweet stuff he did for her…counterbalance with all the awful stuff he’s
done. Then change the subject.
If she’s angry…whack her
over the head with a pillow. Or drag her bum to a kick-boxing class.
If she refuses to go anywhere…bring
the party to here. Hello, massive sleepover with all your closest friends.
If she’s down on herself…make
her feel good by doing stuff she kicks butt at. And remind her constantly about
all the fab things she is capable of.
If she’s not moving on…plan
a double date or group date outing, just to get her out there.
If she’s still all “woe is me”…change her mindset by planning something awesome to look forward to, like a girl’s night on the town. And encourage her to help!
