Is 7 months too long to spend in a talking stage?

Is staying in a talking stage for 7 months too long? Cuz it's entirely online, it's impossible for us to meet. We needed time to get to know each other. Now, it's getting to an end without getting a real and clear closure. It's difficult to get out of this stage after getting emotionally attached and ended up befriending him. I realized that I can't be friends with him while I'm so infatuated. My infatuation won't fade if we continue to talk. And being friends with him while I'm infatuated is a torture to me. Why does it even hurt so much like this? It's as if it's a real breakup when there's even no us to start with. I could only call us as an almost. It really sucks.
