the girl broke up with my son. :) i know that's bad, but she was trying to cause more drama than neccessary. naturally, he's upset. he thinks he loves this girl. she told him that she doesn't have the same feelings for him but yet her mother puts on facebook that it was his fault for being too jealous. as far as i know and see, my son is not a jealous boy. i have taught him that if a girl wants to run around, then she wasn't interested in being with him. at the same time, i have taught my daughter that if she wants to run around, then she's not fully interested in staying with the boy. to always be honest with the way you feel about the partner. don't play games with other people's hearts. when i see these others do that to my kids, i try to teach them to let it go. no since in keeping bad feelings cooped inside.

He should count his blessing I did not say anything. I did not know who the person was but seriously. I think they just wanted someone to be daddy and thats it. He is better off =)

he's counting his blessings i didn't say more than what i did. i'm just glad i didn't agree to combine her birthday party with his. the way they kept pushing her into our activities was annoying.

I am sorry to hear that your son got his heart broken. It may happen again. It is part of life. Until he meets the right person. Time will heal eventually and hopefully sooner. I would just ignore what the mother of the girl says and chalk it up to experience. Sounds like the mom causes just as much drama as her daughter.

my son was very proud of the fact that i didn't reply to her statement. otherwise, i would have said some not so poltite statements. i didn't want to embarrass my son. last night, we let him relax and just be himself. i think it did him a whole lot of good.

Same to what happened to my eldest son, but in his case he is the one who dumped the girl after finding out she was cheating on him. She was his first love, and he was deeply hurt and it really took time for him to recover [I think he still is]. We had talked about it multiple times, and slowly but surely, he is coping up and trying to resolve this issue on his own.

i'm sorry that she cheated on him. i hope he'll realize that not all girls are like that.

Later when they get matured they would know how to handle situation and maybe not confide with their parents anymore unless they are planning to settle down. Of course at their teens there are still dramas and when they passed this stage they just laugh at themselves.

Dear Angel, I am sorry the girl broke up with your son. Its terrible the girl was causing drama. Drama always blows situations way out of proportion, which makes things so much worse and more hurtful for everyone. In my opinion, drama is uncalled for. I will never understand why people put their personal and relationship problems on Facebook. If the mother does that, how can you expect her daughter not to be dramatic?

i told my son that he should be proud of me for not jumping on her mother. that i let it slide. he knows that i don't like others putting the sole blame on my kids. i've never fully trusted this girl or that family. now i know why. he keeps asking me why do girls always dump me. i keep reminding him, that this is only high school. he's got a lot of life ahead of him and that he's not going to find perfect love. right now is the time to be friends with girls and just have fun and be happy. i'd rather see him have a lot of friends and be happy than be in a relationship and miserable. i'm proud that my son is a good man. i have taught him to respect girls and to treat them good.

Those are good things that you have taught your children. Yeah it isn't a good thing for people to play with other people's hearts. It leads to a lot of sadness and depression. So many people get hurt this way. So it's best not to do it. And it's unfair to the innocent person that they are with. I hope that your son is soon able to get over this breakup.
