I been through this situation before with my boyfriend. Tell her that boys are just boys and he wasn't right for her. There are hundreds of other guys out there for her to meet and date. She can't kill her self just because of one guy. I mean she has a whole life ahead of her. She's got school, a dream/career she needs to accomplish and friends and family to love her. Boys are just boys. Some where out there is a boy thats just waiting to be with ur friend u just have to wait See More▼

That boy made a mistake. Suicide is NOT the answer, because suicide is forever, then her life is done. Try to talk to her, the only way to heal it is to talk about it. You can tell her that she still has her whole life ahead of her, and she shouldn't end it. Just because one boy wasn't the one, doesn't mean it's all over for her. Tell her that there is 1 special boy waiting for her, she just has to keep patience. Suicide is NOT the answer...

Just tell her that just because one guy decided to be an ass, it doesn't mean it's the end of the world. Remind her that she young an beautiful and deserves someone ALOT better. Heartbreak sucks, but time heals it. Keep her positive, and try to get her mind off of it. Unless she wants to talk, then let we talk your ears off-it'll make her feel better to get it off her chest. I really really hope Thai helps.

I am facing the same problem but a bit different. My friend thought I was upset with him so he said he was going to jump off a bridge and he scared me sooooo much. I left like 100 messages on his phone telling him not to and if he wasn't going to stop for himself do it for me. He didn't because he knew that if he did I couldn't live with myself. He has counselling now and says it is helping him a lot. You could try and get your friend to see counselling as an option. There is See More▼

I was a bit like that. Talk to her and tell her youre there for her. If she still persists tell someone so she can get the help she needs.

Tell her how mush you would miss her and tell her how wrong her boyfriend is and how many blessings she has in her life. Tell her that her life is precious and no one wants her to leave because of someone else who said something because they were mad. Try showing her that her life is going to get better and that she needs these challenges to become stronger.

Remind her every day that she has a purpose on this earth and that if she does get through it that maybe one day she can help others who had the same problem

Be there for her. Tell her time heals everything, and not to commit suicide because you are destroying any chance of getting better.

Watch her. Closely. She won't ever forget the pain but she can cope. You can help her with that. If she needs you be there and listen. Don't say you don't need him, or he's a puke. That won't help. Just listen and be understanding.

Don't just 'get her another bf' ... he probably won't like her for her if her friend set them up.
