Welcome to BrokenHeartedGirl.com. This interactive site will help you make new breakup buddies to help you get over your breakup! Here you can you seek advice in our interactive forum, write in your public or private blog, IM another breakup buddy, or live-chat in our chatroom. We've compiled a few rules, tips and frequently asked questions to help you get started.
WHY CAN'T I WRITE A BLOG OR FORUM POST? When you sign up, a confirmation email will be sent to your inbox (check your SPAM folder if you don't see it). Click on the confirmation link and you should be able to begin posting. We know it's a pain, but this extra step helps us thwart spammers.
Just a few rules:
- Use an anonymous avatar (not a picture of yourself or your ex).
- After you write your post, respond or make a comment on at least one other post by another member.
- Have fun!
Just a few tips:
- Find out when people respond to your posts or blogs by hitting the SUBSCRIBE button. You'll be notified via email when someone comments.
- Keep to the same thread in the forum! Once you post a story, keep all your responses and updates under the same original post. This way, people who are just catching up on your story will be able to read everything (old & new) in one topic and it'll be easier for them to give sound advice.
- Give advice to get advice. As with anything, you have to give a little to get a little.
