The Science of Heartbreak

Alone and in pain, heartbreak can take us to a depth of despair we didn’t know was possible. If you’re a heartbroken dude this article won’t take the pain away, but it will hopefully help you understand your symptoms and provide you hope. This article illuminates why those feelings make scientific sense and the course you can expect them to take. It’s written for straight men but the takeaways are useful for anyone. After a breakup don’t do things that make you feel out of control. If you're heartbroken there will be grief and sadness to work through and accepting that is the first step to mending a broken heart. On average, heartbreak lasts about 3 months. During heartbreak spend time with people you love and remember to be kind to yourself.

The Science of Heartbreak

A Personal Trainer for Heartbreak

Born from the mind of a former Google employee and modeled after pre-existing fitness and brain-health health apps, Mend started as a newsletter that focused on recovering from heartbreak. Users find the large support network to be an invaluable source of solidarity and the app is already downloaded in more than 100 countries. With an aim to erase the shame and taboo surrounding heartbreak, Mend acts as a personal trainer of sorts, coaching the heartbroken through the trials and tribulations of a break-up and loves addiction-like qualities much the same way a fitness instructor would help a client train for a marathon or a sponsor would support a fellow recovering addict through stages of temptation.
