People grieve in different ways

and it takes, by my theory, half again as long to get over a relationship, as the the relationship lasted.  So--if it was a two year relationship, then it will be a year of recovery.

What has helped me get over such a crushing blow was the realization that the person I thought I was with was not actually the person I was with. The one I thought was my friend, was not. What I lost, I had never actually had. 

Those generalizations may help, or not.  It sounds to me as if he really needs to speak to a grief counselor.

Listen to him going over the same things a few more times and then tell him enough, if he won't move forward. It hurts so much yet in ten years time he will probably have ytouble remembering about her. the hang up calls are probably what we get, just scam stuff...she will have moved on, probably had someone else to move on to. good luck!!

It can be tough to give another person advice when the giver has a pretty good inkling that the person being advised will not like what is said.

Maybe it's getting through it.
