I live with two friends and a dog, and in the last year, all four of us have been through breakups (Yes, including the dog).

Although the nitty-gritty parts of a breakup tend to vary, being supportive when your roommate is going through a breakup can be a constant. You live together. You know each other's guilty-pleasure music and movies. So, even if you don't realize it, you probably have some deep insight into their healing process.
If you're not totally besties with your roomie or you've been feeling some roommate tension of your own, you may feel a little confused about the best way to show your support.
