Really depends on your partner. I know what didn't help me.

My wife is exceptionally empathetic. This just caused spirals. Where I needed strength she showed me empathy.. it wasn't what I needed.
She initially didn't ask me what I wanted/needed. Thats a good place to start
Everytime I go through a breakup the "there are other fish in the sea" mantra just bugged me, didn't help me. Other fish, at that time, were not what I wanted.

Show love, listen.. and he will come out the other side
