So I was restringing my guitar, and I was doing just fine, but when I got to the high E string, I put it on, and as I was tuning it up to E, it snapped, and I don't have any othr strings.

what should I do?

Get new strings and put two fingers underneath the string when putting it through the tuners to give it a little slack. It shouldn't break when tuning up, you probably didn't have enough slack. It should wrap around the post 2 or 3 times.

I've left guitars unstringed, fully stringed, and everything in between several times. It won't damage the neck. Just buy some new strings, and to save yourself the trouble, just put the high E on, don't bother replacing the already new ones. Keep the others for backup.

The only time I ever damaged a neck was when I switched from 9 gauge to 12 gauge a little too fast >.< (don't do that)

He means he didn't slowly move up gauges.

Don't jump straight up to e when tuning that highest strings, tune it a little, let it rest, tune it a little more, just don't twist those tuning prongs too fast, buddy. It needs to get used to being so stretched. or buy DR strings.

DR FOR LIFE!

I've never even snapped a DR string. You can change those things like, once a year, man.
