After 9 months into the relationship, my early 20's friend just got dumped. She thought he was the one. He'd say things like "I've never felt this way with anyone before," or "I could see myself being with you for the rest of my life," right up until he dropped the bomb on her last week. He did it by explaining to her that he's "too busy with school right now" and she's "the right person, but the wrong time" and more "it's not you, it's me" things.
Now ordinarily I'm good with post breakup comfort. I have the tub of ice cream ready and I'm prepared to listen to her vent and tell me what an asshole he was. But to my utter surprise, that's not at all what happened!!
My friend relies heavily on her intuition, and she's told me multiple times (post-breakup) that she thinks that they were meant to be together and that they'll get back together in the future. Oh boy.
Things are complicated by the fact that they have classes together and their families are close friends so they'll see each other often. I'm worried that this combined with how she feels about the breakup will prevent her from getting closure and healthily moving on.
I've tried to confront her and help her see how douchey the whole situation was to help her move on, but she always takes his side and insists that he's "always told her the truth, even about things [she] didn't want to hear, so why would he lie now in the breakup?"
How can I help my friend accept that this relationship didn't work out and this guy is not the one?
