"Can dating someone else help get over an ex?"
Yes, as long as you give yourself enough time for your emotional wounds to heal first. My general rule is 20-30% of the length of the relationship.
"What can you do to help with the process of getting over an ex?"
Mainly give it time, but also work on yourself and learn to enjoy your life with or without a relationship. You don't want your sense of identity to depend on the acceptance of another person; that's a bad road to go down.1

Breakups are so very painful. There's quick remedy for a broken heart and time doesn't heal your pain... It's what you do with your time that heals it. So try to keep active and every time you you find yourself thinking about him , focus your mind elsewhere
Gradually your feelings will fade and your pain will ease, but for now try not to dwell on what was and what could have been.
Don't reminisce or look at pictures of him etc it will only keep the pain raw. The best way to get over someone is to remove all traces of them from your life , and if places you go to remind you of him... focus on creating new memories at those places1
