Can An App Mend A Broken Heart

I wonder................

Apps have introduced to our lives the potential for limitless new connections. It was inevitable that one would be created to help us sever them.

Break-Up Boss proposes a “new app-roach to break-ups” – a kinder, more proactive path through heartbreak than the traditional trifecta of tears, television and time.

There’s still wallowing. It’s just guided wallowing, with a “feel wheel” breaking down your current mood (“WTF just happened”; “I hate them”; “It’s really over”) into short, bloggish posts, equal parts instruction and motivation
Another feature mimics a blank iMessage window. “There’s no way we’re letting you send a text to your ex. But a fake one so you can get all your rage/upset/misery out? You bet.”
