You can't so all you can do is be there for your friend. It's normal and healthy to go through a grieving time of losing a loved one not only because of death, but the relationship is over. People seem to feel that one only grieves if a loved one has died, but we can grieve over lost love, the loss of a home to fire or flood, etc. You are a good friend and you are doing the best you can. Go out to a funny movie, try to have a few laughs, but if you can't get your friend laughing right away, don't worry. Just listen and be patient. It never lasts forever. Good luck Marcy

How do you help your friend get over a guy who's really not worth it?

You tell her that he's not worth it and do things with her to keep her mind off things. Distract your friend. Spend time with them, go out and try new things. Have lots of fun and don't talk about him. It takes a while to get over someone, grief is sometimes necessary, but healthy distractions and new surroundings will help your friend find positive ways to spend their time and will help the recovery process.

How do you help a friend get over a guy she keeps going to and cannot stay away from?

I am sorry to say there isn't much you can do about this situation. It isn't that unusual that some women prefer men (or women) that are wild, mysterious and your friend probably has it their mind they can change that person (the tamer.) Not true! You know it, but your friend is going to have to go through the painful process of learning this the hard way and hopefully learning a lot from the experience. Just be there to pick him/her up off the ground after they realize the person they are in love with wasn't the best choice. You're one great friend! Marcy

What can you do to show your best friend you are sorry and help them forgive you quickly?

You cannot rush forgiveness. If you did something to hurt your friend deeply then it will take time for your friend to totally forgive and trust you again. The first step is to communicate to your friend that you are truly sorry and apologize and then work with better communication skills; learn your mistake well and don't do it again and eventually all will be forgiven by your friend and you start over.

How do you deal with a friend who won't forgive?

If it is you that your friend cannot forgive, then give your friend space. Let a lot of time pass (weeks, or even months). If your friend still cannot forgive you then you need to face that and give up the friendship. Just deal with it; life will go on and maybe years from now you can re-connect. If you have a friend who cannot forgive someone else, just continue being friends and let your friend talk about it if necessary. You cannot make a person forgive someone. It happens over time, or it doesn't happen. You have to roll with it.
