Best friends do so many things for each other, but it mainly comes down to loving and supporting each other.

One of the worst things in the world is seeing your best friend hurting, and breakups definitely hurt.

The very best thing you can do is be there for her, of course.

Knowing how to support your bestie after a breakup involves knowing what makes her laugh, what gets her through the hardest times, and what makes her feel better when she's at her lowest point.

1. At First, Just Listen to Your Friend

She's going to need to talk and she needs someone to simply listen, so in the beginning, that's the best thing you can do.3

2. Let Her Vent as Much as She Wants to

If she wants to yell, scream, purge her space of all of his stuff, or simply cry, let her get it out – encourage her, even, because she can't heal if she doesn't get it out of her system.

3. Take Her to the Dog Park

It doesn't matter if she has a dog or not, a visit to the park can make anybody feel better about nearly anything.2

4. Queue up All Her Favorite Movies and Shows

Your friend might want to wallow for a while, which is totally understandable, and it can help to have some of her favorite movies and TV shows on standby.

5. Now Load up the Best Breakup Movies Ever

Specifically, look for movies where the ex always gets his – that's sure to make her smile, at the very least.3

6. She Might Want to Spend Some Time Alone

Don't take it personally.

She just needs some time to process on her own – it's not because she doesn't appreciate what you're doing.

7. Seriously, Let Her Cry as Much as She Needs to

Try not to get impatient and don't rush her – crying it out is really cathartic sometimes, and she may just need to get all of her grief out of her system.

Don't Let Her Text or Call Her Ex
