Long story short, I fell in love with this guy back in Oct. and we had a falling out and it's been really hard letting go. I've never been in love before him.
We still talk and he says he likes to talk to me and misses me but he doesn't want to see me and says he isn't "sure about dating anyone right now."
Everytime I tell myself I'm going to stop talking to him, I end up missing him horribly after only a day and text him because I know he'll reply. I feel that I'm being so pathetic and I'm sure he thinks I'm pathetic as well. I kind of feel like a loser. I want to be strong and preserve my dignity but I just end up falling back into this rut.
Is there anything I can do to stop being like this? Anything I can tell myself to muster up the resolve to just let it go? I've tried talking to other guys and going on dates, going to meetups, etc but it hasn't made things better.

Honestly it's because you care. You're only going to be able to go through this. There's no shortcuts. You need time to heal.
I'd stay away from him and not reply for at least a month. Work on yourself, learn something new, relax with your friends, have fun. But don't date other guys during this time, you won't be ready to. It just makes us more upset. It's like trying to put a plaster on something that needs stitches.1
