I have to help my heartbroken friend. What should I do?
March 16, 2007 5:49am CST
One of my best friends is in a pretty pitiful condition and I feel like helping him out . Actually he was in love with a girl for the past 6 yrs but never had the courage of telling her about his feelings. Just recently on my suggestion he told her about what he feels for her. She replied in a negative manner and said that she dosen't have time for love in her life and that he should move on and forget about her because it would give nothing to him. After that incident he has almost completely stopped laughing and sits quietly and rarely talks to anyone. I cannot see him like this . Please tell me what should I do for him ? Should I talk to that girl about this ? I'll appreciate any sort of helpful suggestions.

if you also know the girl in person, you can actually tell the girl of the situation. if she cared enough to be concerned, she'll do something about it... like, talk to him perhaps. it could make the situation better or worse, we cannot really tell. nice of you to try and help your bestfriend out. i do hope he appreciates your effort. your friend is having a post reaction to the negative response of the girl. understand that your friend has kept his secret love for the girl for so long (6 years) and it is not an easy task. rejection is never easy. allow some time for your friend to adapt to the situation and feel his first experience of misery. it's part of the risk of loving. know what? how about introducing her to another girl? do you know anybody who might be interested in him? how about introducing him to mylot? this way he can express his bottled feelings better. your friend is hurting. although it hurts to see him like that... let him be for just a little while, but let him know you are there for him and that you'll be supportive no matter what. hope to be of little help somewhat. :) goodluck!
