Break-ups suck, but you needn’t suck at break-ups. Break-Up Boss offers advice and techniques to help the broken-hearted process their hurt, heal, and ultimately, see their break-up as the gift it is. Become the boss of your break-up. Own it.
Created by the author of Textbook Romance, and long-time relationship columnist at Cosmopolitan, Zoë Foster Blake, and with illustrations by Mari Andrew, Break-Up Boss is a modern, meaningful, big-hearted tool for the broken-hearted.
How does it differ from other break-up tools? Because Break-Up Boss firmly places YOU in charge of your break-up. Because you ARE in charge of it! And only you are. Stop letting your heartache and your ex take over your life, your diet, your social life, your job and personality, and start seeing your circumstances as an opportunity for growth. Break-ups happen cos something was broken. So fix yourself, love yourself, and move forward.
Break-Up Boss is the size of a self-help book, but WAY easier to use and digest. (A boss works smart, not hard, after all.) It reveals a no BS, non-waffly, non-naff, real-life strip down of the modern break-up, and enthusiastically encourages an empowered, big-picture, positive view of how to deal with one.
- Use the Feel Wheel to read the exact advice you need at the exact time you need it…. because no two break-ups follow the same time line or even a reliable pattern, after all. (Are you about to see your ex at a wedding? Are you drunk and about to send them a text? Are you miserable and wanting to get back with them? We’ve got you!)
- Send a fake text to your ex, so you don’t send an ACTUAL text to them, and screw everything up (or your ex)
- Recieve daily pep-peps direct to your phone, so you’ve got some sunshine, power and perspective in your pocket at all times
- SOS quotes that give you the exact advice, just as you need it. Like Goddess cards, only less… Goddessy.
Break-ups are a normal, inevitable part of life. And yet we are so bad at them. We let them completely hijack our lives, even though they force us to watch rubbish movies, and cry a lot, and forgo sleep, and eat rubbish.
Well no more. Because now you can own your break-up like a boss. And you really, really should.

Worth every cent
My partner only broke up with me a couple day’s ago but the advice in this app has really helped me to feel normal and grounded. The pep peps keep me going every day and I read them over and over. The only issue I have is the ‘Text your Ex’ section. I just wish you could save the your ex’s name and not have to type it in every time. When writing a big message, what you’ve typed gets hidden and it’s difficult to go back and add things. I would also like if you could send multiple texts and be able to see them, at least until you enter out of that section. Other than that, it’s been really great and I’m sure will continue to be my biggest asset and ally in continuing the long journey to being okay :)
The support I needed
This app really helped me to not feel crazy during a breakup. It was the kind words, support and realism that I needed to hear. The daily reminders are ultra helpful to keep perspective and focus on your growth. And there’s info on every feeling following a breakup. I can’t recommend this app and the book enough. I still have the daily reminders sent to me 6months on because they include such positive messages for healthy self confidence. It’s been one of the many tools that have made a world of difference.
Not working properly 💔
I really loved this app the first time I used it two years ago. I love all of the upbeat messages and the different things to read through based on how you are feeling. My favourite part was the ‘pep peps’ that sent a message a day to get you through the hard times. I reached out for this app 6 months ago, and unfortunately this feature is no longer working 💔 I tried emailing the email address listed but got no response. My guess is that it’s not fully compatible with the current iOS system :( I really loved this app, and with the full features believe it’s worth every cent.
