How do I get over someone without cutting contact?

I'm in love with my best friend and told him a month or two ago but, sadly, it's not reciprocated. He says he loves me, but he thinks our relationship is better than dating and doesn't want to stuff it up. We've had issues with this before and got through it ok. This time it's a little more complicated because we're about to go away for a week on holidays together and he's also started dating a woman who he seems really into. He says he doesn't want anything to change with us and wants to continue to hang out together as much as we did before. It's too late to cancel the holiday plans and I do enjoy spending time with him, but it's hard when he's messaging his girlfriend and I tend to fall to pieces the moment he leaves. He's the only person I can completely be myself around, so I don't want to lose him as a friend. Does anyone have any tips for getting over someone when you are going to be seeing them everyday and don't want to cut contact?
