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

    Its my best friends birthday party on Friday and I still don't know what to get her. She's turning 12 and she loves: guardians of the galaxy and Shopping at Newlook. she wears jewellery quite likes hair and beauty products and enjoys watching movies, going to music concerts ( she likes Taylor Swift) and apple products. I'd rather not use gift cards because they're like the lazy option out and she's my Best friend but if you can think of a great brand for her then ok.

    Talk to your parents about it. Tell them you didn't like your Christmas gift, and don't let your brother boss you around. Your parents can, your brother can't. Your parents gave you life, sorry to tell you but they can do anything they want if it's legal. But your brother can't. Let your parents know that you shouldn't have gotten in trouble for the stuff he doesn't. Tell them he makes you feel really awful and you don't like it. If they're good people they'll understand.

    I would stop being friends with her. I mean she should understand that it'd be mean to do that. It's hard to help your friend get through a breakup when you're dating the same person. Plus you don't even know if she was trying to break you guys up so she could be with him.

    You want to know if he likes you or not? Just ask him. It's not as bad as people say-I mean, it's a question. It looks like he does, so he probably does. It's not that big of a deal.

    Talk to your friend. Tell her that this is the first guy that's ever liked you but you don't want her to get mad at you for stealing him from her. But understand she likes him too so don't get mad if she doesn't want you dating him. Nicely decide which of you should get him instead of the other. Chances are she might be thinking the same thing.
