How to find, or get over, The One?

Think I saw The One, over three years ago, while in another relationship. How do I find him again, or get over it?

We saw each other on a bus, several times over a few months, but the last time, the electricity was intense (others noticed and commented on it). We never spoke. I was in a relationship and didn't want to jeopardize it (wish I had, hindsight being what it is). I think he was my "one," if such people exist. In any case, felt a connection that has never before or since existed.
I've regretted for years that I didn't simply say hello. I've wondered where he is, how to find him. I'm pretty sure this is completely out of my control, and probably all in my head.
I've since relocated (across town, not across country), gone through a couple of career shifts, and can only imagine he's now living in a different country, happily married or something.
So, do you all have any advice on how to move past this romantic notion that I lost my soulmate? How do I let him, and this fantasy (one of the few I still indulge in), go?
Or any idea how I can relocate him?
