Their relationship was strong for the past five years. Then suddenly, one fine day, the guy gets an SMS message telling him that "i don't wanna continue the relationship" and that "I'm sorry for doing so abruptly". I've been this guy's best friend for six years now. Does anyone have any suggestions for this guy? please, any advice is welcome.

theres nothing to do. just be careful when starting new relations. make sure we are not getting cheated. dont fall into love as such. wait , find out her character and if u like it, then go for love

Give him a brick, tell him to build a bridge and get over it. And find himself someone else.

Wow, that is a tough one, I am sure that he needs more closure then how she ended thing. I would take him out to a strip club and get him drunk....have a few nights of fun and then just be a friend to him no matter waht. I am assuming he was in love with his girlfriend, that has got to hurt BAD

Try and move on i know easier said than done it not good to hold on when the other person isn't into it it's obvious she wants to move on,spend alot of time with friends try not be alone to much because u will only dwell on it don't worry before long he will be back in the game just make sure he gets lots of support from friends so he doesn't do anything stupid

Try to find out why she broke it off in the first place, maybe there is some sort of misunderstanding.

I would ask him to stay alone (without looking for another girl friend). Infact you can ask his girl friend for the cause of ending thsi realationship..

It is hard when someone loses there lover. He needs to find out why she sent the text message and find out if their is hope for saving the relationship. He has to do this before he can really give closure to all this. Time will heal the heart. Just spend time with him and listen when he wants to talk.

Do him a favour, Tell him to suck it up and move on. Life's too short for s***. He'll get over it. In the meantime Life WILL GO ON.

Be there for him. Take him out and spend time with him. Show him that he can have a good time and a good life without her. Encourage him to move on (if he is ready to).

Well, tell him to try to salvage the relationship. He should try to do everything possible in order to please his ex-partner and hope that she has a change of heart. More importantly, request for a face to face meet-up with her to find out what is the reason behind the sudden change of heart.

I would just be there for him right now. There There was a reason she did this. It may be something he saw signs of and ignored them. With you by his side he will et over it. 5 years is a long time to be with someone and just drop them. If she did something she is not proud of she may be shame. Give her space and time...
