Luckily, we’re not the only one’s who think a place to sell all things ex is a good idea.
The Times (UK):
Mashable: ”Bella, the website’s owner, claims she did not receive any funding, and doesn’t come from a coding background. Instead, she chose a premium WordPress theme for the site, hoping that the story behind the items will intrigue users more than fancy technicalities.”
New York Times Magazine: “The site, which advertises itself as “a place to shed the stories and the stuff,” has good deals on everything from a three-day lakeside wedding package to a ’65 Mustang, with product descriptions like “surprisingly nice earrings from a total cheapskate.”
The Huffington Post “Acton browsed the web’s breakup site offerings and was surprised to find only “depressing blogs” and “miserable advice from relationship experts.” She said she wanted her site to put a positive, profitable spin on breaking up.”
Good Magazine: ”Everyone wins: The heartbroken purge their past and get some consolation cash to line their pockets. The broke get good deals and interesting (if excruciating) stories behind their finds”
Time: “The owner of the site, Bella, created the site after she found herself with a plane ticket following a breakup the week before Christmas. She created the website as a “place where once loved partners get a second chance.”
The Globe And Mail: “Talk about a silver lining. The online garage sale-meets-self-help aisle, allows users to post items for sale, usually at a deeply discounted “breakup price.”
Refinery 29: ”As dramatic and enjoyable as a bonfire can be, it’s neither safe, environmentally friendly, nor, as GOODmagazine points out, the most profitable option. The ingeniously named startup Never Liked It Anyway offers both an online marketplace for reselling all those presents Mr. Ex gave you and a forum for sharing your heartbreak.”
Daily Mail: ”If it all sounds rather grim and depressing however, do not be fooled. The site is bright and quirky and the tone is positive and empowering.”

“I wanted it to be irreverent like ‘Sex in the City,’ or like what would happen if Beyoncé got dumped, what would she do about it.”
