Finally! An App To Coach You Through Your Breakup So You Don't Drive Everyone Nuts

Inspirational quotes? Check. Pep talks? That too.

While you can swipe right to hopefully meet someone special, maybe the day will come when the relationship will end. (Sorry, but it's true.) Now there’s an app for broken hearts, too.

Break-Up Boss is “the size of a self-help book, but way easier to use and digest,” says the app’s description.

When a user downloads the app (in-between crying and listening to sad songs of course) they are met with daily pep talks, inspirational quotes, breakup-themed playlists, and a safe place to write their exes texts without actually sending them.

A section called the “Feel Wheel” gives advice on running into your ex or what to do if you’ve written a drunk text and found out you’ve actually sent it.

Creator Zoë Foster Blake says of the app:

“Seven years ago I decided to write a book on break-ups. Because I think they’re a gift. A chance for epic growth. Painful but largely misunderstood, like Justin Bieber. But life got busy, and the idea was parked. Then, last year, I realized it should be an APP, not a book! So, I jammed a books' worth of content into a tidy little app, and today that app and idea is finally live. It’s called Break-Up Boss, and it has a singular goal: to help women handle, heal and move on from their breakup in a healthy, positive way.”

She says the app is “a digital pocket coach” for your traumatized, fragile, gorgeous little heart.

“After all, why should a break-up be the boss of your life, mood, personality, diet, social life, sleep patterns, and (now ravenous and atrocious) drinking habits? f**k that. You gotta take back control. You gotta be the boss of your break-up. You gotta make it work for you.

After all: Why should a break-up be the boss of your life, mood, personality, diet, social life, sleep patterns, and (now ravenous and atrocious) drinking habits? Fuck that. You gotta take back control. You gotta be the boss of your break-up. You gotta make it work for you. And hopefully, with Break-Up Boss, you will. With illustrations by the glorious @bymariandrew, and LOTS of advice (much of which you will hate me for), as well as very fun extra shit - like daily pep-peps, a 'text your ex' function and Spotify playlists - but I can’t detail in full here or they’ll turn the music up and usher me off stage, @breakupboss acknowledges that while break-ups definitely suck, you don’t have to suck at break-ups.
