I broke up with my boyfriend a month ago and still hurts so much, I even feel sick.
Is a good idea to go out with other guy just to relieve the pain a little. And to the same things that you used to do with your now ex boyfriend?

Only if you have a genuine interest in the other guy or make it clear that you're just looking for something casual. I have to disagree with most of the responses here. I mean what you don't want to do is seriously date someone you know isn't right for you and lead him on. But if you do think he has a chance of being possibly right for you or you just want something casual and you make that clear, that's fine. Different people have different ways of coping.
If one lost a friend, he or she wouldn't be told to keep to him or herself and not look for new friends, but rather the opposite - "Make new friends!"
I personally think, if you can, casually dating or having some casual sex after a breakup is fine and a good way to alleviate some of the pain, not that I'd know, but from what I've heard and think hypothetically.0

Don't bring a new guy in to it, it's not fair on the new guy to just be in to be 'that guy'.
If you haven't already give your ex all his stuff back, sever all contact - stop following him or being his friend on social media, take away everything that reminds you off him - delete or store pictures away and put anything you have somewhere safe so once you're over it, you can go back to it. Step one to getting over it is to wallow in it, cry, be sad, watch Titanic.. The Notebook, Dear John etc then when you are all out of being sad, say to yourself "okay I've done that and I'm not gonna do that again" and stick by that. Second step is to be with your friends and other support means, spend time with them and enjoy their company, find yourself again. Third step is to go out of your comfort zone and do something new and be excited and happy again. Don't talk or contact your ex by any means, that will just be a back step. There is no 'right way' to get over an ex but the best thing you can do is to go back to your lifestyle that you had before your ex. You will move on, I promise and you will feel better, it's just the early days, they suck but the sadness doesn't last forever.0
