How to Comfort Your Girlfriend Over Text
First, it’s important to remember that everyone deals with grief, stress, and problems differently.
Some people need space and time to process their emotions, while others find comfort in talking about what they’re going through.
But one thing I do know is that everyone welcomes a comforting message from someone close to them, especially those they love.
That’s why no matter how your girlfriend is dealing with whatever she’s going through if you can comfort her it’s going to help her with what she’s going through.
Sure, you might not be able to solve her issues – but take it from me, a comforting message over text if you can’t be present will go a long way!
The difficulty is knowing what to say.
This is why I’ve put together 25 things you can text your girlfriend – or someone else – to help comfort them.

How Often Should You Text Your Girlfriend If She’s Sad?
There’s no set rule, but a good general guideline is to check in with her as often as you think she needs it as you’ll know her better than anyone.
You can also react to how she’s responding to your text messages, if she’s responding at all.
If she’s dealing with something big, you might want to check in more frequently – maybe even several times a day.
But if she’s just going through a tough patch, checking in once a day or every other day should be fine if that’s the vibe you’re getting from her messages.
The most important thing is that you’re there for her and you’re making yourself available, and making it known that you’ll do anything she needs.
As long as you’re clear about that and you give her the time she needs, I’m sure she’ll thank you for being the wonderful, supportive boyfriend you are!
