Instructions

  1. 1

    Strengthen your relationship as friends. Before you can offer him meaningful advice, you'll need to get to know him as well as you can.

  2. 2

    Be understanding and listen to his problems. If he doesn't want to open up about the relationship right away, be patient and wait until he's comfortable talking about it.

  3. 3

    Point out the negative things his girlfriend does, but do it in a positive way. Instead of being openly critical, lightly suggest how things in the relationship should be, or how they'd be different if he were dating you.

  4. 4

    Lead him to resources that list good reasons to end a relationship. Most guys aren't sensitive enough to what their partners do to know when she's crossed the line.

  5. 5

    Always tell the truth. People are bound to find out when you're lying, and it'll only make it harder for your guy to trust you.

  6. 6

    Make yourself available to talk anytime your guy wants. Building a stronger bond between the two of you is the best way to make him see the flaws in his current relationship.
