Although this may sound like a cliche, it is true; Find something that really makes you happy. It might be picking up a new sport, learning to paint, cooking, learning a new language, reading, writing or any number of things. The key is to find something that you enjoy so much that it completely absorbs you. This should not be something that you and your ex did together, but something that is "all about you." Human nature is to enjoy doing things that you are naturally good at. So, in addition to distracting you from thinking about your ex and allowing yourself to do something you really enjoy, it will also help rebuild your confidence! I have been there before and I truly believe that this is the best way to overcome the pain. Also, make sure that you get rid of reminders of them. You don't necessarily need to throw everything away (I know that some people advise this, but I like to keep those things,) but hide them somewhere. Don't look at them. Keep them in the attic of top of the closet or in a shelf in the garage. Don't look at it until you have pretty much forgotten that it was there at all, and you somehow manage to "discover it." By that time, it will contain happy memories and nothing more. You will have moved on by then...forget the guy and find the dude you were cheating on him with, get together and have a back up for when this new guy dumps you!
