I once liked a girl for 3 years. she had a bf, but he was far away and a lot of ppl told me she liked me too. now its 2 years later, and i still like her. i still miss her, and i still want her. we haven't talked in 2 years really, but she still comes up in my dreams and recent thoughts regularly. I could not tell you exactly how many girls I have gone through to get my mind off her. Obviously, it's awful. but I will admit, at least the thought of her keeps me entertained if nothing else. I always wanted an interesting life. Maybe thinking about this guy makes your life more interesting. I dunno, lol I'm just saying don't always stop crushing on someone just because you can't have them, or they seem distant. I bet though if you looked hard enough, he's not so distant. Goodluck, I hope that helps!
