How do I get over a jerk and stop thinking about what I did?

This wasn't a break-up, but I went further than I ever wanted to with a total jerk. I let him charm me and I trusted him and I acted stupid, knowing fully well that it could never ever go well or go anywhere.

The problem is I can't get this stupid jerk out of my head, and it's been two weeks. I was still attracted to him when all was said and done, even though I couldn't stand him at some level.

I probably won't ever see him again, and I knew that and I'm happy about it. So I don't know why some of the stuff he said or did keeps popping into my head. I don't know if it's because I went further with him than I have any other guy, or because he knew how to mess with my head.

I just want to know how to get this mind f*** out of my head--fantasies and memories and crap. But I don't want to just go find some other guy because of it and try to replace it. That could lead to a slippery slope. Because I regret and feel guilty about what I did with him.
