one of my best friends in the entire world is in an on-again-off-again toxic relationship, seriously I knew it was horrible and I read your article on toxic relationships and it fit him and his girl to a T.
I was afraid to show him the article since:
1. he already knows I can’t stand what she does to him
2. she hacks his email/facebook sometimes and if she sees that I send him this she’ll “forbid” that he talks to me, which might actually work for a while (she’s done it with other female friends of his a couple of times) and
3. I don’t want him to be mad at me when they inevitably make up.
Well I finally showed him the article two days ago since they broke up again and he’s miserable. I’m trying to convince him he’s a catch and way better off, but he can’t see that, no matter what I do, I’ve tried setting him up with my single lady friends, tried just sitting around having drinks, tried to just listen, and tried advice, nothing is working. Can you please give me a clue on how to get it through his skull or at least how to stop driving myself crazy about it?
