Welcome to soyouvebeendumped.com (#SYBD) – the longest-running website dedicated solely to helping people through painful breakups and divorces.
Generally speaking, men and women of all ages log on to SYBD for two, primary reasons:
1) because they’ve split up (or are on the verge of breaking up) with their partner, and are looking for some relationship help, support or advice. OR
2) to read our long list of real and funny breakup lines.
Naturally, other people may just come to have a nosy. They could be looking for some entertainment, but mainly it’s the first two. Which category one are YOU?
Here are five steps to get you started on your healing process after a breakup or divorce…
STEP 1 > Watch SYBD’s ’12 Stages’ video!
For those who are feeling truly heartbroken, hurt, confused, betrayed, and looking for some breakup advice and support, then consider starting with my video, “The 12 Stages of a Breakup” (and How to Survive them).
Yes, I know, it’s kind of long, but hopefully you will find it helpful…and that it makes you smile – even if just for a little while!
STEP 2 > Go Through the “10 Tips to Get Over It” & Read My Breakup Story
- Do have a read of this supportive article you might find helpful. It’s my Top ’10 Tips to Get Over it’ (A Break up That is).
- The other one that might offer you some hope and inspiration, is My Own Break-Up Story. You’ll see I’ve been where you are now and I bounced back – even higher. You will too!
Step 3 > Read REAL Breakup Stories
One of the best places to join in on the conversions on SYBD is on the blog post about How, When and Where your relationship ended. If you recently split up and want to feel less alone – this is the place for you.
While I can’t guarantee a personal response to every post – 1) I do scan them all before approving them; 2) the act of writing out your story is cathartic; and 3) reading other people’s tales of woe will probably make you feel a whole lot better too. 4) I also do ask our veterans to pop on and help newbies on here out too!
There is a lot more engagement on the blog than there ever was just now! So go write it out!
You really are NOT alone in your pain – even though it might feel like it just now.
Step 4 > Peruse the Other Articles & Blog
On SYBD, you’ll realize that the end is really just the beginning. The site has been helping broken-hearted men and women going through breakups or divorces for almost fifteen years.
Because of our history, there have been hundreds of relationship articles and tips on how to “get over it” posted here over the years.
One of the most popular blog posts of late is: Have Something to Say to Your Ex? Say it Here, Now.
It’s for those unresolved things you wish to say to him or her. Tell them how you feel right now – the good, the bad, the ugly!
You may find comfort in reading, not only the blog itself, but also the 2000+ comments (and counting) we’ve received. Though my personal reply time can vary, our content is still there to help (24/7), even if I, personally, am not.
Step 5 > Have a Giggle at the Breakup Lines
Again if you haven’t visited yet, do head over to our hugely popular list – crazy dumping lines page. Oh the things people say – when they say “Goodbye”!! They’re guaranteed to make you smile (even if only for a little while…) Please share your breakup line (or lines) with us in the comments section of the page. We’ll share the best ones on our FB , Twitter, Google+ profiles.
Keep the Faith
Finally, I have been at this a long time, and I truly have come to believe that all breakups work out for the “highest good of all concerned,…eventually”.
If you’re in pain, and can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, trust me, you really will get through this. [Well, if you want to, that is… It’s an inside job!]
