YOU ARE THE ADVICE COLUMNIST: I'm In Love With My Best Friend

I'm tired of thinking of him, I still want to be friends, but I don't even know if it's worth it anymore.

So, I am in quite the emotional situation! I've been so terribly in love with my best friend, and it's driving me absolutely insane. I started working at the same job as him last October, we immediately hit it off and had so much in common. We, no exaggeration, hung out EVERY SINGLE DAY (I'm in college, so I don't have a very occupied schedule) until July. In July I ballsed up, took a leap, and told him I liked him more than a friend.
That backfired to say the least. He was very, very, sweet to me about it. He told me how much he admired me for having the guts to say something, but also said that he didn't look at me like that. I was pretty heartbroken, but he made it clear that he wanted to remain best friends with me. So our friendship trudged on, we've taken road trips together and buy each other presents all the time. All of our friends think that we should be together, they say that he sends way too many mixed signals. 
So last week, I confronted him again, I told him I've been feeling a lot of mixed signals coming from him, and that I was very confused by his actions. Again, he denied everything, and today I even found out he's been talking to other girls and has gone on several dates. I KNOW we aren't dating, but it still really sucks to see someone you like not liking you, and it's even worse when he tells me details about the girls. This is where I need your help, what can I possibly do to rid my mind of him? I'm tired of thinking of him, I still want to be friends, but I don't even know if it's worth it anymore. He means a lot to me, but I don't want to go insane over this. Please help!
