And for this week's edition of the Gentleman Snarker:
My parents are getting a divorce. I'm not sure how to cope with this. What are your thoughts?
-The most important thing to remember is that it's not your fault. Might want to consider going to talk to a therapist if you're feeling depressed or anxious about it and it's affecting your schoolwork. If you're a Baylor student, the Baylor Counseling Center offers 7 free therapy sessions (and each therapy session following that is only $10! A steal, considering most psychiatrists are anywhere from $150-$300 an hour).
My best friend is dating a guy that I don't approve of (he goes out partying almost every night and doesn't have a job), how do I tell her he's not right for her?
- Honestly, saying something usually just causes a bunch of problems, drama, and broken relationships. Sometimes its better to just let people hit that brick wall that they're running towards as fast as they possibly can. You may never be able to figure out why (trust me, I've tried time and time again), but sometimes it is literally the only way people learn. Hopefully, she will come to her senses before then, but don't hold your breath and be ready to help put the pieces back together afterward. Most importantly do NOT say "I told you so", as that's only going to make your friend feel way more hurt and alone than she already is.
My best friend told me my boyfriend isn't right for me! What do I do?
- Stop talking to her. She obviously doesn't understand your love.
