The best way to get over an ex? Date a complete replica of him or her immediately after you guys break up.
Breakups are hard for a lot of obvious reasons. I'm not going to list all the ways they absolutely suck, but just know you're not alone in wishing for death via bee helmet (a la Nick Cage in that one movie) in lieu of ever having to deal with a breakup ever again.
One of the biggest ways breakups suck is you lose a sense of consistency. You lose that routine you're comfortable with, and it's a lot to overcome. Regular Sunday brunches, frequent boink seshes and having a guaranteed movie buddy go out the window the second you call it quits on your 'ship.
There are a ton of ways to ease that transition, though. Eating entire tubs of ice cream or going on a legit drinking binge are pretty good activities to undertake when trying to get over an ex. The best one, though?
Dating an actual carbon copy of that ex and acting as if nothing has changed.
Here are a bunch of celebs who did the latter of the two.
1. Nick Jonas
First came Olivia Culpo...
... and then Camila Cabello.
2. Justin Bieber
Remember when Selena dated Justin?
Meet the girl who replaced her.
3. Leonardo DiCaprio
Literally everyone Leonardo has dated is the same woman.
Believe it or not, those are all actually different women.
Remember when Kylie Jenner and Tyga broke up for a few seconds?
During those seconds he occupied his time with this Jenner-ganger.
5. Katy Perry
Let's take a quick look at the men in her life who made her feel fireworks.

Straight up, this is his post-Kim Kardashian wife.
7. Hulk Hogan
Straight up, this is Hulk's ex-wife and current wife.
8. Charlie Sheen
His follow-up to Denise Richards was dating Brooke Mueller.
Honorable mention: That time Scott Disick dated a Kendall Jenner lookalike.
Cool. Def healthy behavior, everybody!
