    i'm talking to my best friend on the phone and she's tlking to her ex-boyfriend online (who we know has problems) he's basically contemplating suicide because he thinks people would be better of without him. I'm telling my friend what to say a little. but we don't know where he lives (i told her if he makes an actual attempt we have to call the police which is when i found out we have no address.) his friend who lives near-by isnt answering his phone.... soo we have a problem and i don't know what to do. i've never really met him so i don't know how serious he is about this. im very worried and i dont want something to happen to him. i dont know if its emotional black mail or if its serious... really worried.

    thanks for the reply, was about to start leaving to go to my local police station - or something. But his girlfriend is round so he can't do anything. Somewhat relieved but I think he's attention seeking ¬.¬ but then I can't be sure so, just happy he's okay!:smile:
