You have to distract yourself in some way. Make a decision that you will not act in a way that is sure to drive him off. You can stop yourself because we always have control of our behavior (unless intoxicated). Make the decision. Use discipline.

You can't NOT think of something, instead, you can choose to think another thought. So when you start to obsess on him, make yourself think "I will have dignity" and picture yourself standing tall and proud of yourself. Do this every single time. Pretty soon you'll see that you do have the control.

Men who are chased never get the thrill of chasing. Let both sides enjoy initiating the conversation.

If I can help further, let me know. Hang in there - you can do this!
