Husband so sad.. abandoned by best friend. How do I comfort him?
Best man in our wedding, godfather to our child, my husbands ONLY friend has decided to go on an adventure to Australia (hasn't yet told my husband through conversation but husband saw a picture of a map and a hint that he was leaving on Facebook). Husband is a lawyer, one of those very intellectual loner super nerd types. Austistic as well... and he came to me tonight in depressed and in tears because he doesn't think he will ever see his best friend again.. the best friend just went through a horrible breakup and it sounds to me like he's just in the mood to travel the world for a while. It's my husbands only true friend. He has trouble making other friends because he's just standoffish and skeptical of everyone. How do I comfort him? He's SO depressed right now and the friend will hardly write him back through text. Husband thinks it's because he doesn't want to break the news to him and basically best friend is just going to jet off and abandon him... which he very well could but.. thoughts ?
