Post-breakup, there's an assessment going on at her end. She's judging how you handle the time apart. If her friends report back (and, they will!) that you're crying whiskey-scented tears to anyone who will listen, that's not good. 

Use the time apart to work on yourself, mentally (by taking stock of your emotions) and physically. Go through the motions of moving on, even if you still hold hopes of reconnecting. Let her wonder what you're doing without her and whether you're dating someone else. It's not about feigning nonchalance, or parading your resilience, but about creating questions, and at some level, fears. Nothing is more terrifying than the idea that someone you once loved (and possibly still do) is capable of happiness without you.
