    1. 1) Keep your distance. Even if you and your ex have decided to stay friends, break away completely from each other right after the breakup. This means not seeing each other, not being around his/her family members, no phone calls, no e-mails, no text messages, no Facebook, and no IMs.[1] You don’t have to have stop talking forever, but you do need to cut all communication for as long as it takes to get completely over your ex.

      Organize your space. A breakup can signify a new beginning. Therefore, cleaning and organizing your personal space will leave you feeling refreshed and prepared for the new things to come. A mess can be overwhelming and depressing, and will just add to your stress level.[2] Keeping busy with tidying your space doesn't require a lot of brain power, but it does require just enough focus to keep you from recycling pain.

      Remove painful memory triggers. There are all kinds of things that remind you of your ex––a song, a smell, a sound, a place. Having these items around can make it harder for you to recover from a breakup. Remove all of the things that make your heart ache or your stomach turn. It can work wonders to clear your space of all these triggers.

    No, it's not, because chances are you'll carry over all the emotional baggage from the previous relationship/breakup. I know someone who did this and it causes problems in their relationshio.

    Have time to yourself, rediscover yourself, develop your hobbies and interests, work hard, and when you feel whole again THEN you look for a potential partner.

    Can only really echo the above.

    Most people need time to move on, moving on too soon can make your new relationship very awkward as you could still be thinking about that person, and being with that person, leaving both of you very confused and hurt at the end!

    Take your time and learn to love yourself and be happy. Then when you meet the right person, you'll be emotionally stronger and confident knowing who you are as an individual.

    Works for some not for others. Depends on what you mean by "get with". The rebound is a classic and can help some. As stated by others finding an actual meaningful relationship to move onto can help others, but they usually bring lots of baggage with them.
