I am friends with a girl who recently went through a bad breakup. She is constantly talking about her ex and what he did wrong, and it's really starting to get on my nerves. I want to be supportive, but I also don't want to hear about her ex all the time.
It's normal for your friend to want to talk about her ex, but it's also understandable that you don't want to hear about him all the time. I think you could try setting some boundaries with your friend. When she starts talking about her ex, you could say something like, "I'm happy to listen, but I also don't want to hear about him all the time. Can we talk about something else?" If she's a good friend, she'll respect your boundaries and try to change the subject.
