Our Story

Our Philosophy

There is an art tradition in Japan called kintsugi, where broken pottery is mended with gold so that the cracks are illuminated, not hidden. The belief is that the pottery is more beautiful for having been broken. We believe the same is true of broken hearts. We believe that you can not only mend, but thrive, after a breakup. We believe an end, in whatever form it takes, is just the beginning of rebuilding the life and love you want.

A letter from our founder

Not too long ago, I was going through a breakup and looking online for help. I found a lot of empty advice (“It takes time” “Just get over it.”), but nothing that resonated with me or made me feel better. So I set out to build a community for people who were going through heartbreak: letsmend.com.

This content site and community grew into our app, Mend, which launched in 2017. Mend is like a best friend in your pocket during heartbreak, there to check on you, give you advice and comfort you. The only difference is that we never get sick of hearing you talk about your breakup and our advice is created by experts.

We believe that every end is a new beginning. And we’re so honored to support you on your journey.

Let’s Mend,
