Welcome to SYBD

Welcome to soyouvebeendumped.com (SYBD). Launched in 2000, this is the longest-running site dedicated to showing you how to get over your ex, and move onSYBD was created as a space for men and women to read and share their experiences and challenges with other people going through the same experience. SYBD is not a place to “win” your ex back – rather it’s a place that encourages you to get yourself back. Sometimes that does mean people do get an ex back, but our focus is to help you to be the best you first and foremost.

I’m Thea Newcomb, SYBD’s founder, and I launched this site, in the aftermath of three, consecutive breakups that took place over a 7-year period. A husband, a “soulmate”, and a would-be priest (yes, really!). Now is this is a place and maybe get some advice, or have a laugh at some of the breakup quotes.

Here are a few of our most popular posts in recent years. It’s up to you whether you just feel like reading stories or share your own experience. It’s up to you.

Watch“The 12 Stages of a Breakup” (and How to Survive them). It’s long, but hopefully you will find it helpful…and that it makes you smile – even if just for a moment or two!

You’re Not Alone

I just want you to know that you really are NOT alone in your pain – even though it might feel like it just now. You will get over your ex. It just takes time to mend a broken heart.

I have been at this a long time (since 2000), 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 all down to you!
