Let's say both were equally involved in the relationship.
I read an article once saying women moved on faster, but right after the break up, women are more intensely Hurt.
- Men move of Faster.
- Women move on Faster.

It all depends. Whoever came to the decision to end the relationship will likely be the one to move on faster if they mentally prepared beforehand. If they broke up because they saw something wrong with the other person as a partner. If the relationship just got difficult and problems were unresolved which led to the break up... it's a toss up. Likely, neither person fully moves on for years, because the breakup only happened because of a lack of communication. Years go by. Both people mature and learn to communicate better. That door is still open.

Having a dick or a vagina doesn't make you move on faster. The less invested you were in the relationship, the quicker you move on. The more attached you were, the harder it is. Anyone can become attached an invested in a relationship. Some people have commitment issues, some don't. And depending on the severity of said commitment issues, some people find it hard to get invested in a relationship and keep their distance. Alternatively, some people just don't have as deep feelings for their partner, as their partner does for them. There are lots of factors to take into consideration. Not everything boils down to gender/sex.
