SYBD’s Been Dumped
After more than two decades, this site is now archived and is no longer monitored at all. For a little while though, you’ll be able to read the existing content but all comments are now switched off.
Since 2000 this site has been here to offer breakup support, along with inspirational stories, tips and advice to the world’s lovelorn.
I am so glad you found So You’ve Been Dumped -it is/was the longest running breakup site on the web!
To celebrate our milestone birthday, 4th of July 2020, SYBD was started over from scratch (not unlike many of our site members!)
Sometimes we all need a fresh start…
If you have found yourself unintentionally single, dumped, ghosted, unfriended or unfollowed by someone you thought cared, then you’re in the right place.
While the advice here is generally aimed at the lovelorn, if you’ve been rejected at a job, by a friend or left out of a group chat, then you’ll find some inspiring tips and support too.
I launched SYBD due to my own experience of being unceremoniously dumped – three times, in about as many years.
Honestly, being dumped was the best thing that ever happened to me…eventually.
It is my hope that you go on to fee the same way. All the very best to you, whoever you are, wherever you are.

Thea’s 12 Stages of a Breakup – video
You may find the 12 Stages of a Breakup (& How to Survive Them) video both helpful and entertaining. While it is a wee bit long (around 11 mins!) – it will be useful to consider the various stages of the healing process and what it takes to really get over your ex.
The video walks through the universal experiences of hurt, anger, confusion, the seemingly crazy thoughts and behaviours and the whole non-linear process that is getting over it.
Do feel free to add your comments on the video over on SYBD’s YouTube channel.
