This is kind of an interesting situation I have here. I am a guy (LOL girls.. internets.. etc.) and my friend is a girl. After knowing her for about 4 or 5 years, I've recognized that she has a severe problem with confidence. She admits it as well. But I think that she doesn't really quite understand how it affects her.
lol sounds like the female version of me
>Is there anything I can do to help her realize that she doesn't have to be so dependent on her boyfriends?
Well, only thing I can say is to tell her that, or explain it to her. I don't think there's really anything else you can do.
