And? Everyone has the right to be miserable.
Love is an odd emotion, it kinda does what it wants. To be honest, I am not sure if you can just "get rid of" any emotion, but with some willpower, you might be able to control how you act around this person. This sounds kinda sad to me, this guy sounds pretty cool; just remember that your own welling needs to be taken into account as well. All the best.
You don't have to give up your love for someone, you just need to stop desiring possession of that person; be ok with not having him/her
Why are you getting rid of these feelings? Is it unrequited love? I'm sorry if it is..
