Welcome to soyouvebeendumped.com (#SYBD) – the longest running breakup site on the web.

We find that people come to SYBD for two, primary reasons: 1) because their relationship has ended and they’re looking for help or 2) to read our long list of real and funny breakup lines. Of course others come to have a nosy or for some entertainment – but mainly the first two. Which category one are YOU?


For those who are feeling heartbroken, hurt, confused, betrayed, and looking for some breakup advice and support, then you’ve come to the right place.

My advice? Start with this video “The 12 Stages of a Breakup”(and How to Survive them). I know it’s long, but hopefully you find it helpful…(please subscribe to our channel while you’re there).

Then have a read of this supportive article you might find helpful is Thea’s Top ’10 Tips to Get Over it’. Feel free to leave your own tips in the comments!


One of the best places to join the conversion on this site is on the post about how, when and where your break up happened. While I can’t guarantee a personal response right away (though I do try to respond to posts whenever I can) – maybe simply the act of writing out your story, or reading other people’s tales of woe, might make you feel a whole lot better. You really are NOT alone in your pain – even though it might feel like it now.


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 over thirteen 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. For instance, you might want to start on, what is arguably this site’s #1 page,


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 (Oh and please like/follow/+1 us if you’re there – we would really appreciate it!!)


You may find comfort in reading, not only the blog itself, but also the 1500+ comments (and counting) we’ve received. Though my personal reply time can vary, our content is still there to help (24/7), I personally am not. If you need a link to a spin-off forum set up by former site members here, then please message me via the SYBD FB page and I’ll give you the link. OK?

Check out the new blog post: Have Something to Say to Your Ex? Say it Here, Now. Unresolved things you wish to say to him or her? Tell them how you feel right now – the good, the bad, the ugly!

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!]

Kind regards,
