How do I get over The One that got away? She's moving on and I'm not.

A very long term friendship w/ strong elements of unrequited love eventually turned into a relationship which then ended for reasons I've given up trying to understand. She's over it and moving on but three years later I am most definately not over it and I am destroying my inner life over the matter. Intellectually I know i have to let go and move on but I have made no progress whatsoever. I am at the point where I have started to realize the extent of my problem and have begun to seek some outside professional help by looking for a therapist or psychologist but have yet to find somebody with whom I am comfortable. I suppose I'm asking for your related experiences, books to read, or anything that may be of use to keep me occupied while I search for professional help. I have a close friend who I have talked to who has been great but there is a limit to what I think I should expect in terms from their commiseration.
