Most Helpful Guy
unfortunately, you don't know what you want, and that makes you give others the chance to take advantage of you. (big mistake.
the problem is that you want to see that relationship as you hoped or expected... which mean continuing doing the same thing gives others the ability to control your emotions ( up or down).
you should know that no one is stopping you from move on except (you).
take your time to heal, and space to know what do you want... and never care so much about what you lost in the past, work on your future.

You won't heal until you fully let go, and you won't be able to give yourself to someone else until you do, but I understand where you're at. Your feelings/emotions will only grow for him the longer you keep doing this.
Sort of a tough call, since he is moving in a few months. The easy choice is to keep doing what you're doing until he's gone, but it isn't the healthiest. I don't recommend continuing this with him. You might really like the other guy if you give your attention to him, but you'll definitely find someone you'll love one day. Surely you can find a way to spend time with friends that don't require him being there too?
Besides, being single isn't so bad. You can focus on learning to love yourself and working towards your goals. That's where true happiness come from, not someone you need to depend on to make you happy.1
