Could this be just the place for Robert Pattinson right now? Introducing - a new website offering the broken-hearted a unique chance for closure.

Recovering from a break-up can be like trying to get over a drug addiction, say researchers – and calling, texting, and stalking an ex on social media is nothing but a band-aid for the broken-hearted. But now, closure is easy to come by on new website

Letter To My Ex enables lovelorn letter-writers to pour all their regrets, apologies, sadness and negative feelings into an unsent missive – while also observing the number one rule of break-ups: No Contact.

The site can also act as a go-between by notifying the ex-partner about the letter, but it’s the unsent letter that psychologist Jacqui Manning believes can really aid recovery after a split.

“Writing an unsent letter is a process that can speed healing and I often advise it as a useful exercise when a client is fixated on a former partner,” she explains. “Writing out your feelings can be really beneficial in breaking the cycle of obsessive, negative thinking we can all experience after a breakup – and can also lead to feelings of relief and empowerment.”

Advice columnists Rachel Smith and Pip Harry agree. They launched as a sister site to their advice column at

“We get a lot of letters from people who can’t move on after a split, and we loved the idea of a website that enables you to file away all those sad, often obsessive feelings about an ex, either fresh from a break-up or years later,” says Smith. “That’s really how Letter To My Ex came about.”

While Letter To My Ex is great for bidding adieu to a former love, the site also delivers on guilty reading pleasure. “Getting a peek into someone else’s break-up, especially if it resonates with something you’ve gone through yourself, is pretty addictive,” says Harry, “and our readers are finding it really healing, too.”
