    How do you cheer up a friend? (Especially, if you cannot meet irl)

    Usually, I just say something like, "I'm here if you need me." That's my MO, I'm that friend that's usually there if you need someone to talk to. But it's not always effective so sometimes, I'd try to be funny to lighten the mood or recommend a song or give distractions by talking about something else.

    However, there are times when all I can do is give them time and space to slowly heal themselves and hope for the best. It kinda sucks. I wish I could help more.

    How about you? How do you cheer someone up? Or how do you want to be cheered up?

    Haha, there's no such thing as friends on the Internet.

    Only perverts, lizard people, robots, eldritch abomination, cats, FBI Agents, and Children who is actually disguised FBI Agents.

    Also, for your answer...

    Cat videos, it always cat videos.

    yup just chat~
    distraction may work but only for awhile since everyone have different way to diffuse a problem~
    so case to case~ how close you to other person~
    there probability you actually know how to cheer that person but cuz you want act "more active" it only ruin situation~

    Shopping vouchers or money.
    As for cheering someone up that would depend on the person. Since you can't actually take the guys out there's also the chance where the person involved would be rather left alone and there's nothing you can do about it.
    My best results when i can't physically drag them out came from making funny videos of myself or gathering them up from the internet. Including playing pranks to people they know.

    I just listen to what they have to say, and provide advice if needed. As for how I am cheered up... Hmmm? I guess memes. Glorious memes.

    Does nothing. Do like usual. If they want to talk, Ai-chan has already made sure they know that Ai-chan doesn't judge.
