    How To Help A Friend Through A Breakup

    A survival guide for when your BFF gets dumped.

    So, your friend was dumped. Time for you to spring to action.

    Did you secretly hate him because he was a jerk or douche?

    If yes, try not to gloat about. You can do that later on:

    Make some fancy cupcakes for her (these double as your secret celebration):

    Act totally surprised:

    Are they one of those couples that always breaks up and gets back together?

    If so, just be a good listener and pretend as hard as you can to care this time:

    Did he break up with her in a bad way?

    "He did WHAT?"

    Swing by the discount liquor store and bring over a Franzia:

    Did he cheat?

    Bastard. Help her brainstorm the perfect revenge:

    No time for homebaked goods, grab some Hostess cupcakes:

    And you'll need to stock up on supplies, this is going to be a long night.

    Important: do NOT let her cut bangs with nail scissors, no matter how badly she wants to:

    Was he a nice guy and they're going to stay friends?

    Then you can skip the trashing him part and focus on all the other hotties out there:

    An elaborately decorated cake is a good gesture:

    A bottle of cheap wine should suffice:

    Remember: your BFF duties are not done until you're drunk and full of junk food:

    Good news! More time for just besties to hang out!
