Ok, people I need some help finding the fine line between letting go of someone and pulling away from them. Let me explain. I've been in love with my (lady) friend for over two years and it's become pretty clear that this feeling will never be requited considering she's dated other new guys coming in the picture and I'm always big brother (yes I am older). I've been trying to find someone else, but my feelings for this girl always seem to come in the way. So I want to let go of those feelings but I don't want to break the friendship that I have with her because she has been very supportive when I went through some rough patches and she's always there whenever I need someone to talk to. She'll even encourage me to date other girls. But no matter who else I meet, I just can't seem to get her out of my head. So, what can I do to let go and yet not lose that valued friendship?
Letting go but staying close...is that possible?

If you can calm tell her, together with her good communication, believe she can understand you0

You are thinking emotionally and sentimentally here. If you think logically what you desire is pretty simple to achieve.
You have mentioned that you love her for 2 years but haven't mentioned if you were in a relationship with her or if she knows you love her the way you do.
Your not wanting to let go of her is clearly because of your love for her compounded by her supportive nature for you (even in her urging you to see other women).
Answers can be more effective if you write about if you have had a relationship with her etc.0
