My friend needs help.
December 13, 2017 7:48pm CST
she has been dating a guy for a few years. However, his mom passed 3 years ago. The man is deeply depressed and since this friend shares his moms birthday he never spends it with her. She is going to be back to read this. I did tell her you would be honest and that is ok with her. She wants to break it off but she loves him. How does she deal with this? I could not offer much being that I am not dealing with that situation. Thanks for the help. She is in dire need. Her words.

yes or just be an adult about it and say it is just one day out of the whole year. you are right or just be friends although that is quite hard if you love someone. he still probably would not spend the day with her. where if she just ignores the one day, they could stay a couple in love.

I have no idea. I would probably just let him spend the birthday where ever and share it with my other friends and family. if she loves him so much just not worry about it. he may eventually come to share it with her. if he isn't beating her, cheating on her, or stealing her money she should leave it go. its one day after all.

I cannot relate to this situation, but since it's been 3 years since his mother's passing - you'd think he consider acceptance for his mom, and maybe it's faith he met your friend as they share the same birthday. What is the probability of that?! Is he only ignoring your friend on her birthday / his mom's birthday? Or is he being distant since?

I think he needs to have some therapy for dealing with the situation. Actually even if the birthdays coincide there is nothing wrong to celebrate with his friend but light a candle in remembrance of his mom. Just saying. Never being in such a situation they will have to work it out best they can.
