Today, to avoid disappointing my excited great grandmother, I still attended a small family dinner to celebrate my engagement. My fiancé and I split last night, I haven't slept and had to tell her he was caught up at work. FML

  • Wow, it's obvious how much she means to you; that must have been excruciating! I'm sure she would have understood, but what's done is done. Hang in there!

  • She has seen and experienced so much in her life she probably has a great perspective on the situation.
    Confide in her. Elders aren't as fragile as we tend to think.
    She might enjoy talking about love and it's complications. Let her try to cheer you up instead of being hurt more having to pretend for her.
    Might even learn some surprising things about her.
