Nothing sucks as much as seeing a friend go through heartbreak. And although it might not seem like it, knowing what to say to a friend going through a breakup can have a huge impact on them. A text message is one way to show them they have someone to lean on. They may also be experiencing a lot of anxiety, Leckie adds. Even if you do live close by, checking in regularly through texts or phone calls is still essential to being a supportive friend in addition to spending time with them IRL.
Whatever the case may be, the right text for someone going through a breakup depends on their specific situation and how you found out about the split. Here's how the experts recommend reaching out. If your friend reaches out to you directly about what happened, or you see it on social media, Leckie suggests sending a text that focuses on building them up when they're likely feeling low.
She recommends saying:. It will get easier each day. She suggests texting:. She recommends:. I had dinner with [X] tonight who mentioned that you and [X] had recently broken up.
It would be great to see you! The goal is not to find out more information by asking questions or to try to just have this one text be your primary interaction.
To let your friend know you're still there for them as time goes by, Leckie suggests sending them a text along the lines of:. How about I come by with some takeout and we watch a funny movie to help get your mind off things? I miss you! But beyond texting, Martinez says the best thing you can do if you're near your friend is to keep checking in and help them stay busy.
While texts are a great way to let your friend know you care, ultimately the most important thing to do is to just be there, and continue to be there as they heal — whether that's via text, Zoom, in person, or even by carrier pigeon if you have to. Checking in regularly not just right after you hear about the breakup for the first time and, if you can, visiting them and keeping them busy will be crucial to their heartbreak recovery. And what else are friends for if not to support each other through the good and the bad? Your friend will appreciate it more than you can imagine.
