I am (female) 18 and he is 23 he just sent me a text saying he was still absolutely heartbroken and its just so upsetting, i live in a different county to him so i can't be with him as a shoulder to cry on which is just leaving me feeling even more helpless, i just don't know what words to say to comfort him.
