This is So You’ve Been Dumped
Welcome to So You’ve Been Dumped (SYBD) – your trusted companion in the world of heartbreak since 2000. Through the highs and lows of love’s labyrinth, we’ve consistently offered solace, advice, and inspiration to those nursing broken hearts.
Celebrating two decades online, we rebooted SYBD from the ground up on our 20th anniversary, the 4th of July 2020. Just like many who visit us, sometimes, a fresh start is all you need.
Stumbled here after a heart-wrenching breakup? Ghosted by someone you believed in? Unfollowed by someone you trusted? You’re in the right sanctuary. And it’s not just about romantic woes. From job rejections to being left out of group chats – we’ve got insights to lift you up.
My journey with SYBD began after experiencing the sting of being dumped, not once, but thrice, within a short span. Yet, looking back, those heartbreaks were a blessing in disguise – and I genuinely believe they can be for you too.
Hold onto hope and explore our site. Because no matter how bleak it seems now, brighter days await. Here’s to finding strength, healing, and rediscovering yourself.
Warmest wishes to you, from every corner of the globe.

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.
