May 1, 2007

I've been keeping my fingers crossed that Ben and his lame girlfriend would break up, so why do I feel so bad for him now that it's happened? Maybe because she was so mean about the whole thing...

I should be stoked, right? Ben and his girlfriend have been hanging out 24/7 for weeks now, and just generally being annoying. So imagine my delight when word got around that she'd dumped him. Aww, but when I saw him in the hallway a few hours later, he looked so sad. Apparently she just sent him a text message to say that she has a new boyfriend now. I thought guys were supposed to be jerks. That is one cold chick he was dating.

Anyway, Ben's not going to die of a broken heart or anything, but he is pretty bummed out. He'd never had a girlfriend before and he's taking it pretty hard. I've been spending more time at his place the last few days, just playing Foosball with him and even making the occasional Pussycat Doll joke about myself. If that's not friendship, I don't know what is.

So what do you all think - what's the best way to help your friend through a break-up? And do you think it's okay to break up with someone via text? Man, I think that was laaaame. !

Later,
Simon

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

    When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

    You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

    Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
