By way of background, I invested in and began the State of Anxiety anxiety and breakup advice website as an unconventional means of helping others who struggle with anxiety; especially after a breakup or divorce (aka, all of us at one time or another) – especially those with anxiety, or for whom anxiety becomes an acute side affect of a breakup. And, with a specific focus on men seeking breakup advice. As someone with a penis, I can say with a degree of authority that men have never been mentally/emotionally equipped to effectively deal with (1) A relationship, or (2) The end of one.
The State of Anxiety site started as an essay about my own worst breakup. In the absence of any relatable breakup advice available anywhere, the essay turned into the single best source of breakup advice to myself and friends. It was so effective that I posted it online to let others know that their maniacal breakup behaviors were justifiably sane. Based on a steady stream of website posts and emails from sufferers seeking breakup advice worldwide that soon followed, it did not take long to realize the overwhelming need to provide more. More advice. More humor. And, more help related to the visceral pain associated with a breakup or divorce from men. For men, women, gays, and straights alike, being on the receiving end of a breakup affects everyone equally. Even the ridiculously good-looking.
