One of my closest friends is having a really hard time at the moment with her self esteem. Her and her last ex boyfriend are almost broken up for 1 year and the anniversary of that date is starting to take its toll. She keeps mentioning how she is bitter and twisted and doesn’t see the point in relationships when we are 20 since they don’t last. Problem is then 15 min later she is saying she wishes she had a boyfriend. I can tell she is really flat and I want to make her happy but I don’t know how. The obvious answer is to help her meet guys but she is doesn’t really see many and isn’t really friends with any. Most of our joint friendship group is girls with their boyfriends, she goes to uni but is friends with only girls for some reason and she works in retail where she just works with a 40+ married old man. I suggested she change jobs into something where she will be more exposed to guys and hence make friends but she just got this job recently and said she doesn’t want to change.I’m really worried about her though because we went out the other night just the two of us and bumped into people we knew through other friends. We were having a great night and she encouraged one of the guys to go for me since he liked me. We ended up dancing and he gave me his number and then 10 min later she is hiding in the toilet and then comes out crying saying she isn’t jealous but she has had a crush on him for 10 months! She was really emotional, I have never see her this upset. Later when I went back to her house we had a really long talk and she really opened up. She said she never told me she liked him because she thought I would laugh at her and only spoke about him to her other friends who didn’t know him. She kept saying that she feels like there is something wrong with her because she has been single for almost a year and I have only been for a month and I get the guy she has been wanting for ages. The weirdest thing though, I have no idea why she is still single. She has had a couple of boyfriends before so it is not like she doesn’t know what to do. She is a blonde bomb shell and I am not kidding…. She down to earth, loving, playful and has a hot body. She knows how to dress, isn’t afraid or shy of anything and at the same time isn’t intimidating. I’m just as confused as she is about why she is single. Hell, if I was a guy I would definitely go out with her. I know this is long, but I just really care about her. She has always been the one friend I could truly count on and has always supported me. Lol even encouraged the guy who she liked to ask me out and told me to go out with him because I’m crazy if I don’t. Any suggestions on what I can do to make her happier?
