My ex and I broke up almost a year ago and for the first 3 months I missed her like hell and yes I'd cry. Just doing the stuff we'd do together, but now alone, made me miss her and think about her. We were together for 4 years so we shared a lot of experiences, investing and such together.
For the first few months, I didn't really flirt or hang out with any girls to get her off my mind. Though there was a girl I DID like who I gave my # to, as I felt I just wasn't quite ready to be aggressive (she never called/texted).
But in general, over time, talking to or hanging out with other girls (I was going to school, so I was surrounded by them) helped a lot, I suppose. But that's not to say it was "easy" to move on. Our separation was amicable, so we still talk and are great friends, though I know that doesn't work for every body.1
