You just have to

I shut this emotion off a long time ago-I simply stopped caring-do you think you have my kind of willpower? That's what it takes.

(a) focus on another girl you like. It may be hard but it can be done. Find what you like about this girl and look for that in someone else.
(b) focus on what you don't like about her. I'm sure you've idealized her but start thinking of things that wouldn't sit well if you were together. Like 'she doesn't like parties and I'd get bored soon' etc.

Good luck!

It's hard. Really hard. It takes time. You wont' be able to totally "erased" her from your brain, but you can reduce the feeling slowly.
But overall, you are going to be just fine.
Just take it easy and not make it a big deal. That way, you can decreased your feeling level towards her.
good luck.

Get other women in your life... go to a club or similar where women are looking to hookup as well.

Now once you hookup with three women, tell me if your still obsessing over this one girl!

I don't get this. You like her, yet you want to forget about her? Why?
If you two can't be together, so it be. But nobody said you have to forget about her. You could still be with her as friends for example. It's not going to be easy, but it's a possibility.
In general, that's what I do, because I hate to cut off all contact with people I like. And I've had very good experiences with it.
Good Luck to you!

You never forget, it just gets easier to deal with. I wonder why you want to forget. Why not concentrate on winning her over.

Dude. Sorry to hear this. My advice: stop talking to her. I know it's not what you want to hear, but bro, if you keep seeing her and talking to her, you can't forget about her. I read the question that you asked, and I know the actual question you are trying to ask. Your question is "how do I get a girl who doesn't like me to like me?" or "how do I deal with the fact that this chick isn't into me?" It's really a damned shame that the answer to all three of those questions is stop talking to her. I used to be in your shoes all the time. Unrequited love is a bitch. The thing is, you and I are really hopeful. We figure that if we stick around long enough, that girl will realize how great we are and that they really should be with us. Bad news, bro. It doesn't work. The best thing for you to do is to stop talking to her, or maybe talk to her once a week, and get out there and have some fun. The truth is, once you get out there, go on a few dates with other girls, get your mojo going, become a busy guy, then she'll actually start liking you more. If you're always there for her, you become "too easy" women want a challenge. So only talk to her once a week, and tell her you're busy, even when you're not. Go out and have fun with friends, go on dates with other girls. Basically, bro, once you get over her, she'll actually start wanting you, so get over her.
