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

    I hang out with a bunch of different groups of people.. All of which have drama. And it is NOT fun. They all expect me to choose a side and start making me feel bad so that I would HAVE to pick them. It really doesn't make me feel so good, I don't know what to do. :/

    My bestie Lydia's mom, had her when she was 12. Lydia's mom is like the best mom out there. True, Lydia has a hard time not having a dad and having to be real responsible. But Rosalyn is an awesome mom. Don't be so judgy people.

    You should go over to her house and ask. Just talk to her. Communication is key.
