Well, I figured if anybody could help me, it would be here. I have a female friend that has been in several failed relationships (ex's ended up cheating on her, the last told her they were over on her birthday of all days), and her parents are getting divorced (she doesnt get along with either of them very well anyway). Recently, a friend from WAYYY back (figure, as soon as she figured out what a friend was) basically threw her out of his life when she refused to have sex with him. Her problems with relationships and her family have basically led to the situation where me, my roomates, and a few other people have basically become her family. The only problem is that when she has a problem, she still will not really open up to us and let it all out. We all feel bad about this because we know that it would help if she just talked about it, but she never does beyond telling us a few sentences of what happened (usually over AIM), and then never saying a word about it again. I guess I am just looking for advice on how to get her to open up and start talking to us about stuff to get over it.
