I did the right thing, how could I have done it "betterly"
First of all, lol @ betterly.
Secondly, I used to date this girl a while back, due to various reasons I ended things with her pretty abruptly as I saw it being a waste of my time.
A couple months ago she started contact with me again, we talked a few times via message, then on the phone a couple hours a few times, where I found out she had gotten back with her boyfriend (which I knew was going to happen anyway). I played it cool, told her that I understood she really couldn't talk about this guy with her normal confidants and gave her a specific one time pass this incident.
She messages me a few times here and there feeling shitty, I cheer her up and that is the end of it.
I messaged her a couple times, no answers and she messaged me back and said sorry, she had been busy.
I read the message, but hey she is busy so nevermind right?
About 2 weeks later she comes into my work (this has never happened before) and walks up to me, puts her arms around me and starts crying and I told her I'm at work, I get off in 30 we can hang out. She starts with the "my boyfriend is so shitty" spiel, I reiterate the fact that I'm at work and I'll hang out with her for a little bit afterwards. I tell her (not ask her, tell her) to leave and I'll call her when I get off. She tells me to "please not forget about her". I do as I say, she fell asleep and apologizes in the morning. I text her a bit, make her smile and then get back to doing what I do.
Two days later (the morning of this post) I get awoken by my phone ringing. I just answered, I figured it was for a job interview as I am changing towns and looking for a new job soon. It was her, and she asked if I could talk. I told her yea, we small talked a little bit then she started in with the boyfriend bullshit again. I told her "look, I realize you are going through a lot but I simply don't care about your relationship. You only..." *click* she hung up before I got the chance to tell her that she only calls to talk to me when he hurts her, and I'm sick of cheering her up when he hurts her.
I texted her a small message to this effect, and of course expect no reply or anything and went on about my day. I just seen not too long ago she deleted me off facebook, probably lost my number too, which brings me to my question.
What would have been a more tactful way of handling this? I tend to be kind of blunt, especially when you keep doing something so utterly insane.
