    According to Chambers English Dictionary.

    THEN is correct

    THEN means ‘therefore’  or  ‘in that case’.    i.e.   If my dog is a 10 year old Labrador and your dog is a 10 week old Labrador, THEN my dog is bigger than yours.

    THAN is a comparative, introducing something of a lower degree.     i.e.  My dog is bigger THAN your dog.

    I agree with John MacNab's answer. Your question, however, contains punctuation errors.

    "If you're bored, then you must be boring, too."

    Please note the insertion of the two commas in the above.
