I have a crush on a pub trivia friend, and its bringing out the worst in me.

There's a guy in one of my friend groups that I'm developing an unhealthy crush on. He's charming and flirty, but I feel like I'm maybe his 4th or 5th choice -- if there's a new girl playing with us that week, he'll act way more interested in her and I'll get jealous of the attention she's getting. I don't know where this is coming from, since we don't have any romantic history. Meanwhile the whole time he'll be telling these really funny and self-deprecating stories about how he's radioactive with women and can't keep a girlfriend. (Red flag. I know.)
I feel like I'm regressing back to high school: I'm pining for guys that don't notice me, who are in turn pining for girls that don't notice them. I don't want to stop seeing these friends (and really, this guy) but I'm feeling bummed out every time we hang out. How do I get over this crush?
