OK so it seems to me that whenever I see a couple break up the guy will find another girl in a matter of days where as the girl won't get a guy or a crush even til a week or more.
This isn't just one couple, I've seen this constantly happening to my friends and just people in my school.
So is this true?

Well, you're still in high school, I'm assuming, and generally relationships aren't that serious when you're that age (yeah, some people have serious relationships, but probably not most), so it's easier to bounce back from them. I agree with freefall7, who said that guys lose feelings for a girl when the relationship goes bad, where are girls are more hung-up on what could have been. Guys probably see a break-up as an opportunity to find someone more compatible, whereas girls see it as a failure that they need to dwell on. I also think that a lot of girls, in a weird way, like the drama of a breakup (wahh, my life is so hard because I'm a teenage girl and all boys are jerks! ;( ). They like the attention from their friends who are trying to make them feel better, and they also like to hold out longer than the guy before finding someone new so they can say "Well obviously he didn't care about me/I loved him more than he loved me!" and feel like the better person.1
