My (almost) 17 year old’s (ex)boyfriend is being a major douche bag right now and I wish there was a way for me to help her. Apparently he broke up with her after almost a year but didn’t even have the nerve to tell her. He just removed all of their pictures from social media and wrote something about moving on. She tried to contact him and he ignored her for the whole day and when he finally did talk to her she found out that he met someone new a few days ago and cheated on her. I want to punch him in the face.
She’s hysterical and all I can do is advise her to block him and ignore him for her own sake. It breaks my heart that her heart is broken. I wish I could prevent this from happening, but we all know that heartache is sadly a part of life. The only thing I can do is listen to her. Listen to her cry and sob and be in pain. It really makes me sad. These are not the things we think about when we have our babies. We protect them from all that we can but broken hearts aren’t something that can be prevented.
She is such a beautiful and lovely girl and I know there is definitely someone out there better than this boy, who admittedly I have liked up to this point. After him being such a coward and then flaunting his new girlfriend of a few days by posting pictures of them kissing where my daughter will see I completely dislike him and think he is a terrible and insensitive little rat. Karma will get him though and all I need to focus on is getting my daughter through this really rough time.
