3Jake has an aching description of what a guidance counselor sees at your local high school, come Spring.
Right around late May, things settle back down and everyone waits for the year to end. The mating rituals have mellowed and people have paired up or pared down. They are focused on final exams and end of the year parties. But Spring is rough. Really rough.
And my advice about talking to the brokenhearted boys, 3Jake? Tell 'em the truth. Yes, they will love again, and as impossible as it seems it will be every bit as strong, and they will even be happy again. But it won't be the same, it can never be the same again. And they can be sure that they will never, ever forget.

It probably won't help. Still, they deserve to know the truth.
