So I fell in love with my best friend. She makes me so happy and smile like no one else. She's just so beautiful to me. The problem is we've already talked about it and she says she loves having me as a friend and that our friendship is different than others (in a good way) but doesn't want more than that. She actually feels really bad that she doesn't see me the same way and wishes she felt it too but says she's sorry and just doesn't. This puts me in a difficult place. Should I let go of the girl I love? Or keep the friendship and deal with the pain? Both options completely suck and I don't know what to do.

Do you really want her out of your life? It'll be hard at first. You could try telling her that you still wanna be friends and that close but that you need some time to get over her.
I think it sucks even more not having your best friend in your life, even when you love her and it's not mutual. She'll understand you'll need time, that's normal!
Just meet up a bit less often and try to act like the friends you used to be. If you feel it's not working out, tell her you need more time. If it is working and you feel you can handle it, great!
Good luck with whatever choice you make! But don't cut someone that important out of your life just like that because you couldn't deal with how you feel about her.0
