In love with my youth pastor, need help deciding what to do?

I am 24, he is 27. I've been "in love" with him for a little over a year now. Due to an immature friend who I confined in (big mistake) last year she told him how I felt, and he told me he doesn't see me that way. But, even though God ultimately shut this door, I still think we are made to be together by the way he will tease me and joke with me, how much we have in common, and he will even call and text me. I know he probably doesn't mean to do it to get my hopes up, but it's to the point where I will stalk him on social media.

Since this has been going on for over a year, should I join another church? I see him averagely twice a week (for the college bible study, and I help out with the youth he is head over) and every time I see him it gives me hope. I have been part of this church for 5 years though.

My walk with God is great and this hasn't hindered me since he is such a godly man., and he is my leader. But I'm wondering if distancing myself is the best way to approach this?
