Fast forward to me ordering the kindle version of this book.

It's a book that you'll "do" and then keep doing until you're OVER your ex (like I am).

Four years ago I was on top of the world...I had just graduated with my law degree, landed a new job, moved to a new town and had an amazing boyfriend with whom I was planning our future. Then, my boyfriend found someone else and dumped me. Suddenly, living in a town where I didn't know anyone wasn't exciting; it was terrifying, the new job was overwhelming and I felt more alone than I had ever felt in my life. It was all I could do to get out of bed; I spent my evenings holding my cell phone, listening to "our song" and sobbing into my pillow. I was utterly devastated. One sleepless night, I searched the internet for tips to surviving a breakup and thankfully, stumbled across The Breakup Workbook. The advice and coping tools within The Breakup Workbook was like a life preserver; it stopped me from drowning in a sea of self-loathing, sadness and heart break. In particular, The Workbook gave me tasks to focus on (like naming things I liked about my ex but also the things he had done to hurt me) that provided an outlet for my emotions. It also gave me a "game plan" (i.e. avoid contact with him) that helped me resist the temptation to call him 12 times a day and made me feel like I wasn't spiraling out of control. Simply put, this book (and the forum at [...]) saved my sanity. Equally important, it saved my ability/desire to be in a romantic relationship. I've had my heart stepped on a couple times in the past four years, and the first thing I do is pull out the Workbook. Each time, I've healed and put myself back out there in the hope of finding love. I am recently engaged to a wonderful man and am so thankful for The Breakup Workbook for helping my heart and spirit heal! I would highly recommend this book to anyone (man or woman) who has suffered a heartbreak and needs solid tools to help them cope.

I just went through a rough break-up..well, I'm still going through it, and I purchased a few books on the ending of a relationship. Here's the thing.. most books will NOT make you feel better. It sucks to break-up, and you hit rock bottom at times, and you feel brutal. Period. The End. Problem is this, I tend to feel bad during breakups (even if the guy is a jerk) because I always think about the good things he does, and how he made me feel, and all the fun times. This obviously doesn't help.

Fast forward to me ordering the kindle version of this book. I started reading and then saw there were things to ask myself, and write down. Seriously.. to me, that is a reason to close a book. I hate doing 'introspective stuff' .. but it wasn't much about me, and more about the relationship. This made it interesting.. questions had to do with events in the relationship, impressions, behaviours etc. As I literally was in bed, and didn't feel motivated to even do anything, I opened a blank page in Word, and did it .. with Kindle half on the screen (I have kindle for mac) and Word on the other half. What an eye opener.

This book definitely helped. It allowed me to see things for what they really were. No book can help anyone unless someone really wants help, but this book kept my mind off calling or seeing him, and was an important step in the process. I admit that I read it several times to get me through my tough patches, and it helped. This book helped me realize that the person I was dating really wasn't the person i thought he was.. and this wasn't from the book's advice, but via my responses to the questions in the book.

Breaking up with a guy at the age of 45 seems like it would be a little easier, with the experience and all...but not this time, and not for me. I grieved the ending of my last relationship for almost 3 years. The Breakup Workbook helped me to finally sort out my life, but him behind me, and MOVE ON. I recovered with a feeling of new self-worth and let go of much of the remorse and bad thoughts I had about him as well. I wish this book would have been out when I was in my early twenties. I'd probably be married happily by now instead of making the same mistakes for the past 15 years...THANK YOU MELYSHA for writing such an awesome and helpful guide! I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS WORKBOOK TO TEENS TO SENIORS WHO EXPERIENCE THE LOSS OF LOVE!

This book was really straightforward and you can tell it was written by someone who has "been there." I loved the fact that I could actually write in the book and I also loved that there is an online community/blog that work with the book. It's like 24/7 encouragement and the people that I have met in the [...] forum have become my friends now.

I strongly encourage you to get this book, because it's not something that you'll read and put away. It's a book that you'll "do" and then keep doing until you're OVER your ex (like I am).

Purchased the kindle version of this book today, completed the first four exercises, and read quite a bit ahead (over three quarters of the way through the book). As someone trying to get over a recently broken engagement and three year relationship, this book is helpful. It is probably most helpful for someone that is reeling from a more significant breakup, perhaps someone's first breakup, or a breakup from a relationship that had lots of hopes and plans for a shared future. As someone in the latter category, it is helpful to have a step-by-step approach for getting up and out of the fugue and depression that follows a massive alteration of future plans.

This book asks a lot of questions that are helping me to think through why things didn't work out. For example filling out answers for "Exercise 4: Question your relationship" helped me realize that a lot of the things I had really loved about my ex, the non-superficial things, were mostly gone toward the end of our relationship. While some of the sections are less applicable for someone with a clear cut relationship ending, between this and my use of wiki's how to get over a broken engagement (http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Over-a-Broken-Engagement) it feels like there is a lot of solid good advice available to me.

One thing that might be improved is adding some guidance for people that are cohabitating and how to sort out the division of assets. The author suggests putting his things in a box and having a friend take it away which works for people with less of an ex's stuff. Something that helped for me was having my mom come over to help me pack up his things in boxes and stay until after he picked up his things that evening.
