I have a soon to be 20 yr old daughter,and I have had to console her thru heartbreaks and it does break your heart that is for sure. The last thing we want to do is see our children hurting.
In my opinion all you can really do is just listen. He knows you can't make the pain go away,and you can't do anything about
the relationship. He is going to be fine, just needs to grieve for awhile.
Remember your first heartbreak? It feels like someone has taken a rock and smashed your heart,and you think the tears will never stop. But they do,and then you wake up one morning and don't even think about
One thing I do want to say is I think you have raised a very caring and loving man. Kudos to you for that.
There are so many guys out there that just quite frankly don't care whose heart they break,and will never commit to one person.
With your question to the internet dating sites... they work for some people,and it can be fun to search and meet new people. I would not rush him yet though,he needs to get over her before he starts a new relationship. A rebound relationship can hurt all people involved.
Stay strong and keep us posted.
