Break ups are hard and when your BFF is heartbroken, its difficult to contain your urge to drive your fist in to the offenders face.
Keep those boxing gloves aside for a bit and try these tips to make your BFF fabulous as ever:
Keep the empathy handy
Breakups drive the best of us to become weepy saps, ensure that you keep the frown off your face and be a patient listener.
Stow away the ballads
Ensure that all romantic ballads, odes to immortal love and basically, any version of break up music is kept away from your BFF's reach. When in doubt, go the Bollywood dance music route.
Don't be afraid of some tough love
If the incessant ranting and tears don't stop after weeks, it's time for some good ol' tough love. Buckle up and don't be afraid to tell them they're better off without their exes.
Every night is game night
Take them out, chat up some hotties, it's time to bring out the big guns. Nothing is better than some good ol' fashioned flirting.
Rebuild the fabulous
In all probability your BFF's confidence has taken a hit, it's time you tell them they're awesome and fabulous.
Make your own date night
Take 'em out, just the two of you. Talk about anything but the breakup.
Create breathing room
It's natural that you'd want to be around your friend and comfort them but know when to back off a little and give them some breathing room.
Mix, mingle and smile
Introduce your BFF to new people, new places and new food. There's nothing like a change of scenery for a change of heart.
