    My boyfriend's Godfather passed away recently, and they were very close. He seems to have taken his passing very hard. He also asked me for some space, and I have no problems with that! how do you handle a grieving boyfriend with the passing of a loved one!? curious to know how others cope with it! not so much from his point of view but from how it makes you feel or in dealing with it.

    From experience (on the other side of the coin), I would say don't lay any pressure on him, just be there when he needs you, and not in his face when he doesn't. It's a long process, and may be the make or break thing in your relationship.

    And NEVER say "Your such-n-such wouldn't be impressed, he'd tell you to.." because you'll get it wrong
