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

Musical stimuli is proven make your brain more active, and it can be your favorite song or one that teaches you how to do whatever you need. You can also take notes from your book(s) or websites. Last thing I can suggest is to take a break if you get frustrated. Hope that helps & if you have any questions just P.M. or comment me. Good luck :) ILMDGRL is right. I couldn't give better advice that she just did.  8)

    Yes, but only if they wear something like a long T-shirt, long cardigan or shorts over them because leggings show a lot and aren't exactly trousers. >.>
