I don't know it this is the right place to post this. Since I respect the opion of those her at passions....I wanted to get your advice...What do you do when you have a friend who is about to make a big mistake???? My friend is think about about going out with someone who has hurt him before.....now he is sticking up for the way she has treated him in the pass...when only a month or so ago he was saying not so good things about her....He is my friend and I don't want him to get hurt......I think maybe he is justify her acting b/c he wants a girlfirend...I know you can't save someone from themself but I wish I could do something about it. Everytime I have tryed to talk to him about it, he blows up..If you have any advice please feel free it tell me..

I would probably say…


My friend, I know how much you care about this person
But I think you should give yourself a little more time before
you jump back into a relationship with her right away, if she
really cares about you as much as you do her then she will
give you more time to make a decision on another relationship
with her.
_____________________________

This extra time may help him make a better decision on what
kind of relationship he really wants with this girl.
But don’t ever say I told you so! Because you care enough to
try and save this friend from a possible heartbreak again.

We all have been there at one time or another. Just let him know you will be there for him, if it doesn't work out.

I agree, just let him learn the lesson a second time, but tell him you'll still be his friend and there for him if it does not work out. When it comes to love men or women are usually pretty dense. We'll rationalize anything if we want something bad enough.

Just make sure you help if it doesn't work out to make him believe that its not all his fault. He sounds like he's being controlled by a person that doesn't respect his choices or needs in life... been there.

Good luck.

Well I have a friend who constantly goes after the same girl even though she's cheated on him, dumped him, and so on.
I just tell him that he's making a mistake over and over again and he won't listen.
C'est la vie!



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

He's old enough to make those mistakes...make him do it again. Seems likeyou've acted more than a friend already. You've tried your best...

"So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this give life to thee." W.S.
