A woman in the friend zone. What to do?

This is so frustrating. I met a great guy about two months ago. We're both in our late 20s and single. Right from the very beginning, even when we barely knew each other, he would talk about other women he was interested in, to the point where he would tell me about the other dates that he'd gone out on.
Now, a few weeks later, I'm firmly in the dreaded friend zone, to the point where we will have wonderful and fun friend dates that feel entirely platonic. I'll absolutely find excuses to touch him, we talk practically every day in some way, we have a ton in common, and yet...nothing.
How do I get out of this? Or, should I just give it up and look for someone who is actually interested in me? Part of it is that I so rarely meet men that I'm this attracted to so quickly, but on the other hand, I hate being taught to pine.
Perhaps the real question is, how can I work on accepting that I am in the friend zone so that I can move on to find someone who is actually interested in me? I'm also just tired of being "friends" with men that I'm really interested in, I need to figure out how to not be in this position in the future.
