To My Best Friend Who Had Her Heart Broken

It hurts right now, but I'll always be here to pass you the Oreos.

We might not have been friends for long, or we may have met in elementary school. Maybe we get lunch every week, or we go to schools across the country from one another. You may have been in the relationship for years, or maybe it was relatively new. Regardless, I'm sorry.

I'm sorry that your heart was broken, that you feel like you've lost all your trust in people, and that you feel used. I wish I could fix all of this. All I can do, though, is be here while you cry, while you yell, and when you're eventually angry.

We all know the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and, finally, acceptance. I have to admit, I'm only going to be good at helping you through the anger stage. Lord knows I'll try to be comforting while you cry, but my true calling is in snarky comments about your ex. In the wise words of Chandler Bing, "I'm not great at the advice. Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?"

Regardless, if you call me at 2 am, I will come running with a pack of Oreos and cheap wine, ready to curl up and watch "Titanic" to your heart's content. And after the movie is over and you're wondering what went wrong, I will remind you that you're worth it, you're beautiful, and you will always have me to give you Oreos and snarky comments.

I remember your nerves before the first date, your excited phone call to tell me all about it, and how we analyzed every single thing he ever said to you. You thought you were perfect together, and now that it's over, you can't believe that that wasn't true. But I'm here to tell you that you're a wonderful and complete person on your own, and when you eventually decide to dive back into the dating pool, I'll be here to listen to you talk about the butterflies in your stomach again.

'Hell No' And 19 Other Responses When Asking College Students How They Felt About Friends Dating Their Siblings

I mean it worked in "The Kissing Booth."

Entering a new relationship can be awkward at first, but what if your new boyfriend/girlfriend is your friends sibling?

Um, hello, double awkward.

Who breaks the news to them? What happens if you guys don't last? Is dating a friends sibling something that should even happen in the first place? Well, I wanted to get to the bottom of it, so I asked 20 college students two simple questions, "How do you feel about dating a friend's sibling or your friend's dating your sibling?" and "Would you stop being friends with somebody if they started dating your sibling?" and here's what they had to say.

1. "It depends on the friend." - 23, Male

He also said that he wouldn't stop being friends with somebody if they started dating their sibling.

2. "I honestly wouldn't care, I would do it." - 22, Female

She would remain friends with somebody if they started dating her sibling.

3. "Hell no, this shouldn't happen." - 21, Female

She said she definitely would drop her friend if this were to ever happen.

4. "I think that if it makes them happy than it's fine, but when they start neglecting you instead of hanging out it can be bad. Especially, if one of them breaks up with the other." - 23, Female

She wouldn't stop being friends with somebody if they dated her sibling, and she also said that she would date a friends sibling.

5. "Very opposed if it was a close friend because it could ruin the friendship." - 21, Female

She would drop her friend if this ever happened.

6. "I wouldn't mind as long as I knew their true intentions." - 19, Male

He would stay friends with somebody if this ever happened.

7. "I don't care." - 20, Female

Would stay friends with somebody.

8. "I would hate that, but if they're both happy I feel like I would need to support them. My main concern is if they broke up, I feel like I would have to choose sides." - 21, Female

She said either way it's awkward but she would remain friends with them.

9. "I think that it's fine as long as the friend doesn't shut me out." - 22, Female

She said that she would love them both regardless.

10. "Uncomfortable." - 20, Male

Okay fair enough considering his siblings are minors and his friends are not. But yes, he definitely would stop being friends with somebody if this ever happened.

11. "I don't have siblings, but I don't think that I would mind. Love is love, don't be a hater." -18, Female

She would date a friends sibling and stay friends with somebody if they dated her sibling, (if she had any).

12. "My siblings are younger than me so somebody better have a jail cell waiting for me." - 20, Male

Yet, he would still be friends with them even if this happened..

13. "I'm not okay with it." - 22, Female

Would still remain friends wit somebody if this were to happen though.

14. "I'm a lot older than them, so it's a little weird." - 27, Female

She also said that she would date a friends sibling and remain friends with somebody if they ever dated her sibling.

15. "I'm not really that weirded out as long as it didn't impact our friendship. I personally don't find anything wrong with it" -18, Female

She too said that she would date a friends sibling and remain friends with somebody if they ever dated her sibling.

16. "My sister is like 31 so that's weird. I'm not for it but I'm not against it either." -18, Female

She wouldn't date any of her friends siblings but would remain friends with somebody if they dated hers.

17. "It was bound to happen. It just doesn't matter to me personally. " - 22, Female

She also said love is love, and that she would date one of her friends siblings and stay friends if somebody dated hers.

18. "Very awkward. The risk of losing them is too high." - 21, Female

Wouldn't personally date a friends sibling but would keep the friendship if somebody dated hers.

19. "Annoyed. Your "friend" is going to leave you high and dry for your brother/sibling." - 23, Female

Would never date a friends sibling and would drop somebody if they dated hers.

20. "I'd be a bit weirded out at first but that wouldn't negate our friendship." - 25, Male
