After a chance encounter with her neighbor, Naz Perez realized how much more freely people talk to strangers about things they're worried they'd be judged for. In an attempt to give people a safe space to vent without worry, she created Heartbroken Anonymous.
Perez formerly worked on The Bachelor, so she had seen her fair share of love and heartbreak. After she went through an intense heartbreak herself, she tried to do everything she could to get out of it. She then started a support group for people from all walks of life to gather and share stories of heartbreak to serve as a reminder that they're not alone.
The group has gone viral due to the pandemic, but it is still up and running. This isn't just for romantic heartbreak either. If you're feeling heartbroken over the loss of a friend, end of a career, or even your own mental state, you can share all of your feelings in the group.
Right now there are two meetings a month that are hosted over zoom. Meetings are donation based.
