What to say to someone going through a breakup

Kind things to say to someone going through a break up

When you find out that your friend has split up with their boyfriend or girlfriend your reaction is going to depend on whether or not you liked their boo.

It can be painful to watch a friend date or hook up with someone who is not good for them, treats them like rubbish, and is an all-around jerk. If it has been going on for a while, hopefully, this is the final time and your friend will smarten up and move on to a better situation.

You have to be careful what you say to someone because as much as they complain about the person they are dating, they will turn around and defend them and it could permanently affect your relationship. It’s kind of like your family, you may complain about them but it pisses you off when other people do.
