Some of Breakup Shop’s readers have been divorced or widowed, while others are in toxic relationships or unhappy marriages. Some just want advice about online dating, while others are looking for hope in their hour of need.

Andrea told us the Breakup Shop has seen many successes, but one reader’s story stands out to her as particularly meaningful.

A 27-year-old old Texan man became a follower of Breakup Shop’s blog after being dumped by his high school sweetheart, who had also cheated on him. In the months after this traumatic breakup, the man gained over 100 pounds, lost his job, fell into depression, and developed an addiction to alcohol. He even contemplated suicide at one point.

The man reached out to Breakup Shop’s email from a dark place, and the team responded with one-on-one support. Andrea arranged a video call with the man every week for about four months and encouraged him to turn his life around. The personalized feedback and support made a huge difference.

“He has not only lost all of the weight he gained, but he actually took up bodybuilding and is in the best shape of his life,” Andrea said. “He is in a supportive and healthy relationship with a new woman who shares his values. He’s been sober for months and has found a higher-paying job that he’s more passionate about.”

Andrea told us stories like those inspire her to keep Breakup Shop going because she knows how important it can be to someone who is hurting and heartbroken from a past relationship.
