Do people actually get over over relationships that fast? or do they just act like that to make you feel a certain way or covering up their true feelings?
I've never experienced this, but I do see this happening and I’m kind of curious

I think it happens most often when the love you feel isn't even. One person gets emotionally invested and the other doesn't.
Grief hurts the most when you picture the loss of future things. (a future together, future dates, etc) If one of you doesn't love the other then they probably didn't make deep future plans about the other.
It's also very very common to leave for someone else. Sadly I've done this. I feel terrible about doing it, like I am a total ass. I suspect bad boys don't feel that way. Point is they aren't sad because they aren't loosing anything, they are gaining a new partner.1
Girls move on much quicker. I've said this before, but I'll say it again. Most females have backup plans, meaning guys they aren't dating because they are taken. So, they just start dating the day after they break up. This is a generalization.
For guys, it could be a little harder and less timely to move on. If they hook up they are just trying to get over the girl.
In either case, if the girl/guy broke up with the person, then yes it's very easy to move on. They are done with you.2

Well it depends. If a person is over the person and ends the relationship then yes he or she can walk away and move on. Sometimes people grow away from each other. It doesn’t mean they don’t care about the person they just not in love with the person. Then there’s relationships that either person break up for a reason. This type of break up is a forced break up. It’s not because either part grew apart but what another party did or didn’t do to the other. So that party will break up for pride or being hurt but that doesn’t mean they still don’t love the person.2
