has never progressed to anything physical."
Often, when we're disappointed in our childhood, we still carry this need for fulfillment and desire for being recognized or loved within ourselves. And it is quite common that we then seek out people who replace these early "idols". We look to them to "make up" for this unresolved chapter in our development.
You can't follow your advice, which is quite rational because it has nothing to do with reason. It has to do with your realm of feelings and feelings are not rational. Let's start looking at this problem in a different way. How do you feel about yourself?
Do you like yourself? Are you accepting of yourself? Do you think you deserve better, that you deserve a loving and caring woman in your life beyond a good friend? That's where your focus should be. If you have doubts about yourself then it is hard to move on because you may feel that you are not deserving of anything better. So you need to work on the underlying reason that stops you from achieving the happiness you deserve. It may help you to see a therapist a few times and also to read some books on self-knowledge. I wish you courage to look at the hard questions and my good wishes for a chance at a loving life.
