Don't let her grill him just talk to him like their having a regular conversation. [ Tina92's advice column | Ask Tina92 A Question ]
katie_knows_all481 answered Friday July 21 2006, 3:05 pm: tell your friend to call/go over to this guy's house and talk to him!!! Some people really do mean it, and he could. Usually hearing a loved one's voice will help the person realize that someone does still love them, and they won't try to kill themselves, or they will admit to taking pills if they tried to kill themselves that way. Your friend really needs to talk to him. If he still isn't willing to stop trying to cut/kill himself, then you need to tell his parents if they don't already know
HOpe this helps!

LadyGoodman answered Friday July 21 2006, 5:11 am: He's probably not serious, but you best tell his parents anyway. He obviously needs some type of help even if he's not really going to kill himself. And if they get pissed off at you, remind him that that's the consequence for saying you're going to end your life. If it's a life or death situation, it needs to be taken seriously.

xo_minela answered Friday July 21 2006, 4:32 am: aww omgshh! that happend to me too but he wasn`t my boyfriend , he said he was going to kill himself too because i guess i was being mean to him ? but then he didn`t kill himself because obviously he didn`t have the guts to and it was over aim too. Well you deff. need to tell your friend he isn`t going to kill himself he`s probably just saying that because he wants more attention from her/you or any other friends, and if he wanted to kill himself there has to be a reason and if there was a reason wouldn`t he tell his gf? i don`t think he is going to seriously kill himself , but tell your friend to call him or go over to his house! i hope i helped , & i hope everything works out! Good Luck! xoxo [ xo_minela's advice column | Ask xo_minela A Question ]
lookitslorin answered Friday July 21 2006, 4:09 am: I have a friend that does this all the time. He comes from a bad home, so it is usual for him. I personally dont think he will do it. He is probably just looking for attention. If he wont tell why, its probably because he dosent have a reason. Dont tell him that you think he is lieing, try to comfort him. This will make him feel better. Hope I have helped :] [ lookitslorin's advice column | Ask lookitslorin A Question ]
Exquisitechick answered Friday July 21 2006, 4:00 am: I doubt he is serious. I had one of my ex's say that to me cuz i was guna break up with him. But, he is just trying to get her to feel sorry for him. So unless he has a history of cutting or anything take him seriously. If he doesnt, just ignore him [ Exquisitechick's advice column | Ask Exquisitechick A Question ]
