My son started uni in September, 50 miles from home. He stays in halls.
Very quickly he got a girlfriend and was spending the majority of time in her flat mixing with her flatmates and doing everything with them. He was having a great time until now
He split up with the girl last week as things were moving too quickly . Still talking though . Obviously very upset but also now very lonely as he isn't spending the time in her flat with everyone but is now back in his flat. He didn't join any clubs or make any friends outside this group and now it has collapsed around him .
In hindsight they rushed into the relationship and unfortunately he made friends with her flatmates and not his own.
I have suggested that he needs to try and make new friendship, go to clubs etc but he's not having any of this.
Please how can I help him get over this relationship when I am miles away and also he sends limited messages etc
Am worried sick about him. He was loving life a few weeks ago and now he's miserable. I know it will eventually pass and early days at uni but just want to be able to give him a hug and support him.
