Hypothetically, if you are going through a breakup, what is the ideal thing you would want your friend to do to help?

Go on holiday. Adrenaline sports. Skydiving. Swim with sharks. Ride a bear together into battle against ISIS. Break into Mike Tyson's mansion, steel his tiger.

That sort of stuff.

Not put pressure on me to be “happy” or “get over it” or to go out if I don’t want.
Not be offended if I just want to be alone for a bit.

I am serious. I really want to do the most ideal things and I know I can just be there for her, but I want to cheer her up as much as possible.

Well, I did start out serious but decided to turn it into a parody. Every guy will be different, and certainly more different than a girl going through a breakup. In my case, just spending more time with friends would work, and seeing as I'm the 'active' type... some sort of sporty holiday with up-lifting people would work well.

I don't know her on the other hand, at all. Obviously. What does she like/dislike? It's difficult for me to suggest anything tailored here. Is she extroverted or introverted? Does she like talking a lot? I don't know. Is there something you know she wanted to do, but forgot about or didn't find the time to, because of her relationship perhaps?

It's nice that you are this thoughtful. Those are some things to think about.

Listen to me ranting and complaining, also have fun and normal chats, meet up and spend time together, and perhaps reminding me I am loveable if it was a very bad relationship. Just nice knowing that someone cares about you, and is there for you.

Thank you guys so much for your help. She is coming over, and I went and bought her lots of vegan chocolates and ice cream (she is lactose intolerant) and will make sure to give her loads of hugs. Will be there for her, hear her out and e honest, and not pressure her to be happy (:

Yeah, you do have a point.

She is basically just coming over and it will be hard to go out, but that is a great idea anyway. Maybe for the future if she still needs it I can take her to visit another city here (she is active too).

Yeah, you're right. Yeahh she is quite extroverted. She just messaged me though and told me that she needs to cry it all out and does not like people see her cry, so we will just have a day in.

Thank you for this advice. It is so helpful and will consider doing it as the days pass by if she needs it.


Thank you.
