    Going Out for a Road Trip

    I have a group of friends who are bikers and loves to go around for a road trip during weekends. But then, there is one friend of ours who has a sudden change of habits and not wanting to join us anymore. Actually, she is having a problem with her marriage. I wish I could help her. Maybe, she's depressed right now. What's the best way for me to do?

    write her a poem in fire on her lawn.

    Hi Sneer,
    Just be a friend. Try to encourage without guilting. Offer an ear when needed. Give space when asked. Remind that a good physical workout can help change the mindset.

    Sometimes, life gets in the way of dedicated riding. We all have different motivations and capabilities. If riding is not the thing right now, maybe something off the bike would be better received.

    If a poem must be written in someone's lawn, I vote for fertilizer instead of fire. But that is just me.
    (oh yea, we are a bunch of moreons here with glib deflections)

    Yeah, she's probably having marital problems because she's hanging out with the OP too much anyway.

    Is it true Bourdain hung himself because of chat board cleverness?
    I am 100% convinced the internet and social media are not the salvation to human civility.

    Kudos to you for attempting to give a helpful answer to an apparently sincere question (if inartfully worded - OP is not a native English speaker, I think). And thumbs down to the moreons who took it as just another opportunity to applaud themselves for their own "cleverness."

    Hi, I appreciate your concern and for taking time to help or give a piece of advice. By the way, my friend is undergoing a counseling right now due to her depression. Let us just hope that everything will be fine with her soon.
