When I heard about a website that helps you ask your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend what went wrong in your relationship, I immediately thought to myself, “That sounds like the worst idea for a website, ever.”

However, I reminded myself to never judge a book by its cover, or a website by its name, so I typed the website into my search bar.

The name of the website is Do you think the company’s officials just made some kind of silly typo when they were trying to spell the word “what”?

Or do you actually think they don’t know how to spell it? Maybe they were trying to be hip? I don’t get it.

I filled out all the stuff that was needed in order to join. (It’s free, by the way.)

After joining, I was led to a page where I could write out a letter to my ex-boyfriend or have the website write one for me.

I picked the latter, and you want to know what letter they wrote out for me?

The following is what I was given with fake names I entered:

“Dear Huckleberry, how are you? So it’s a bummer things didn’t work out between us. But that’s the way it goes.

“I’d appreciate it if you could do me a favor and let me know, from your perspective, where things went wrong.

“Thanks ever so much!”

— Opal

Wait...what? What was the point of that? I could come up with that on my own. It’s just saying “what went wrong?” in a way that sounds a lot more awkward.

So after I chose my letter, it sent me to another page where I had to fill in Huckleberry’s email address or cellphone number.

I typed in one of my other email addresses and sent the email.

You want to know what they sent me? An invitation to join the website. They didn’t even send me the letter.

I definitely would not recommend this website to anyone. For one thing, it has absolutely no purpose.

Also, if you send your ex an invitation to a website called, your ex is going to think you are psycho.

There is only a 1 percent chance your ex would actually join it and take you seriously. Honestly, they would probably put the email into their spam folder — and that’s if they even check their email, which is also doubtful.

However, the reason why I most hated this website was because it’s just another way for people to let technology do the work for them.

If you are in a relationship with someone and you want to fix it, you need to be able to talk it out with that person.

Don’t text. Don’t write on their Facebook wall. Don’t send them a letter from

I just think this is an extremely juvenile website. It reminds me of the kind of thing children would do on the playground in grade school.

One student would send one of their friends to go ask some other student to be their boyfriend or girlfriend. It’s just silly.
