    devastated state

    Dear Teachers hope you are ok ,

    Please what expressions other than broken-heart could be used to descrbie the state of someone after having a broken -up love relationship. For example, can i say : i met her and she was in a devastated state.

    thanks indeed

    Re: devastated state

    You could indeed, though it would be more usually "she was devastated by her loss".
