Who says the internet can't help mend a broken heart?
Reeling from a breakup? There's an app-or a website, or an online service-for that.
YourTango's second annual Break Up With Your Ex Day, February 13, is fast approaching. Though your former flame may have fallen off the face of the Earth, it's harder to get him or her out of your mind, right? You're not alone. You've got your friends, YourTango, and a variety of online resources to help you connect with others-or yourself-and move on.
Never Liked It Anyway
Sell stuff your ex gave you on the online marketplace Never Liked It Anyway. The worse the breakup, the better the deal for someone else.
Don't get worked up. Get worked out. DailyBurn Tracker is a free app that's more attentive to your needs than your ex ever was. It provides workout tips, nutrition and exercise tracking, and more.
Want to take it a step further? Sign up for DailyBurn's customized workout service and get exercise videos at your fingertips 24/7. The videos are personalized for your exercise preferences and motivation levels. The best part? They can be viewed via tablet, smartphone, Apple TV, computer, etc., so it's like having a personal trainer wherever you go.
Dear Old Love
Anonymously pine, wax nostalgic or vent on Dear Old Love. (Sample posts include: "I can't believe it's been more than a year since we were looking at those rings, and now we aren't even Facebook friends." and "I snooped through your text messages while you were sleeping. I'm sorry.") It's also a book.
Stick to your promises not to call-or text, or email-your ex with The Ex-App. Just find him in your contacts and block. (And don't worry: Should he get back in your good graces, you'll still have his number.)
HowAboutWe, OKCupid, eHarmony, etc.
You should take your time to start dating again. But when you're ready, know that a plethora of online dating options mean true love might be a mouse click away. Most dating sites have apps, too.
Each site has its own angle. HowAboutWe is all about proposing interesting dates. eHarmony focuses on long-term compatibility. OKCupid is a catch-all, where you can search for long- or short-term dating, new friends or casual sex.
Get your feelings out in writing and email them to yourself (or someone else) in the future at FutureMe.org. By the time of receipt, your heart may be healed.
Spotify, Grooveshark, Pandora, etc.
Two words: Breakup music. Create a heartbreak station on Pandora. (May we suggest starting with The Magnetic Fields?) You can also create your own breakup playlist-or borrow someone else's-on Spotify or Grooveshark.
Feel like you lost one of your best friends? Make new ones through Meetup. You can search activities by interest and location.
Old Love is a photoblog dedicated to former celebrity couples. Famous people survive breakups and move on, just like you will.
LivingSocial, Groupon, Yipit, etc.
Make plans with your friends or schedule some me-time. LivingSocial, Groupon, Yipit and other daily deal sites offer one-of-a-kind experiences that'll get you out of the house and help you forget all about you-know-who in no time.
