Unrequited love

Hello everyone. 2 years back my boyfriend had cheated on me and left me for another girl. It was a terrible heartbreak. Then i came across another guy after some time. We became really good friends with time. Both of us are in the college. During the third year we went out together for the first time. After that "date" i told him that i had somehow started liking him more and he told me he liked me too. With time my feelings grew stronger for him. He used to tell me "you are my priority". ""You are special and important to me".I was falling in love. However when i told him that i loved him he did not say anything. He used to say things like "i appreciate your feelings". I used to start missing him when we did not talk to each other for more than three days and he always used to tell me that it would not change the bond we shared if we did not talk for a few days. We started having several fights because i used to feel he was not giving me enough time. I could not feel the same warmth and affection i used to feel before i told him that i loved him. I felt that perhaps our fights was pushing him away from me. But he always used to tell me that i must not think so much and take it easy. However i was getting frustrated. I wanted the same warmth and affection from the person i loved so much. But despite of telling him this several times, the only answer i got was "take it easy". Tired and frustrated of all this, one day i finally asked him straightaway whether he even loved me? The reply left me shattered. His reply was "i don't think so". I was heartbroken. More so because i believed he loved me too. However he said that it was just my perception. Ofcourse he liked me but he did not love me. It was a terrible thing to hear. It hurted so bad. He even went on to tell me that i could get someone better than him. I asked him if he was confused but he said he wasn't. I was broken.He. was an important part of my life. I could pour my heart out to him. He was my best friend. And now i was being forced to give up on him. He said we could still be friends. However i simply do not know what to do. Currently i have told him i need a break and would not talk for sometime. I am hoping to get over him so that i can restore our friendship. But then again i do not know if i will ever be able to do this. Will i ever be able to treat him simply like a buddy again? He meant so much to me. I do not wish to end our friendship but then again i love him so much that being just a friend seems next to impossible. I do not know what to do. I did not talk to him for the last ten days until he texted me again asking how was i doing. I just dont know what to do. Please help me out of this. I have been having this heartache since the day he told me he did not feel the same. It has almost been a month and a half. Today when we spoke i do feel a bit better. But what should i do. We are classmates, i have to face him in college everyday. How do i get over him ???? What should i do. Please help me out.

Hi, I'm a producer for the Dr. Phil show and I think your story would make for a great TV piece that could help others in a similar situation. Would you be interested in appearing on air to talk to us? We pay for all travel. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
