A podcast hosted by Thea Newcomb, founder ofsoyouvebeendumped.com (SYBD) which talks about love and lack thereof. We'll be serving up breakup tips, advice and inspirational stories from people around the world. Breakups, dating, relationships, and transforming lives is what the SYBD channel is about.
Hello I am Thea Newcomb the founder of So You've Been Dumped. Today I'm on the virtual hunt for stories about breakups and more specifically from anyone who has ever been left and had it it turn out to be right in the long run.
So to hear how people go from hearing those painful words "it's over" to being "over it". I'm looking for real stories from men and women of all ages who have turned that pain into gain.
On the SYBD blog – and in our forum – I’ve seen thousands of people:
change careers or jobs
go back to school/college/university
travel the world
move house (state, country and even across the world!)
take up new hobbies or sports
…and simply grow and evolve as a direct result of a breakup.
How have you bounced back?

Dear Heartbroken One - A Letter to the Lovelorn of the World...
I am Thea Newcomb the Founder of So You've Been Dumped and this is a "letter" I wrote years ago for the soyouvebeendumped.com blog.
The main reason for this to give a newly single man or woman, anywhere in this world, a bit of hope and to realise that what they're thinking and feeling is not uncommon. Rejection is a universal experience - whatever age we may be. Life will go on, and most dumpees will love again in time.
Please feel free to share this with anyone going through a breakup or divorce - who you think it may help. If it's you going through one then please know you're going to be ok, you're not alone and what you're experiencing is all part of the human condition.
