Drink won't mend a broken heart but will put him into utter depression.
Tell him as it is, that he lost the love he's once found... he couldn't save it but it's not the end of the world... move on if he can and live through the pain of today, tomorrow's gonna be another day.
get his girl then grab her by the han to the lan, which you unerstang
When peoples hearts break its an opportunity to remind them of the love they have within it and that its not ONLY a relationship that can get you in touch with that. When we break up its not only the person we miss, but the love that was in our hearts because of their presence. Personally i think its more about the love and not the person.
But when a heart 'breaks' its also an opportunity for their darkness to become hard to manage.
Just BE there and listen. Let him express what he needs to until he has run out of things to say and can see clearly a bit again
Sometimes ppl just need someone to bounce ideas off when they are in pain
I dunno rly. Maybe drinking is the solution within YOUR and HIS context. But not a long term healthy one imo.
Hook up with his ex and break her heart.
im not fan of desperate getting drunk why not just commit to some outdoor/indoor sport activity. like climbing or squash can easily get rid of anger with this 2. after have 1 - 2 postworkout beers.
There is not much you can do in that situation , just try spending more time with him doing some productive and fun shit so he can put that of his mind , it will be easier for him to forget about her...
Lick his dick until there will be no DNA of that bitch left
