Welcome to SYBD

Welcome to soyouvebeendumped.com (#SYBD). SYBD is the longest-running website offering relationship support/advice, and a place to vent. This is a place to help men and women, of all ages, around the world, who are going through painful breakups or divorces, to read and share their stories.

I’m Thea Newcomb, SYBD’s founder, and your tour guide to feeling better soon. Back in 2000, 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!)

How Can SYBD Help You?

To start feeling better now, please scan the sections below, to find support, various tips, to read real stories, and even post your own, if you would like to.

Are you here: 1) because you have split up (or are on the verge of breaking up) with your partner, and are looking for some relationship help, support or advice? 2) Or are you simply here to view our list of real and funny breakup lines?

If you genuinely need help, then start with the options highlighted below…or if you need to take advantage of my listening service, I can arrange a time to speak to you one-on-one (for a fee!)

VIDEO: SYBD’s “12 Stages of a Breakup”

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!

Community Comments

You will find comfort in reading the blog posts themselves, but also our 3000 comments we’ve received on here. Though I can’t personally reply to all comments anymore, I do aim to moderate them daily, and I respond to as many as I am able to. Be sure to use a real email address. I (or an admin) will look closely at every comment now – to ensure the posts are coming from legit people.

There is a lot more engagement on the blog than there ever was just now! So go write it out! You’ll feel better if you do.

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. 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 all down to you!
