At least it means there is life in you, that there is power in your feelings. Many are overtaken, somewhat, by their feelings and mentations, get depressed, anxious, obsessed, the occasional poor guy goes mad.
I think that to feel these feelings does have some value, after all this loving feeling can be quite beautiful cant it, even if it in some cases cant have the object it is craving. Desire is also a coomplicated matter, contradictory, deep, and it is one of the consequences of our way of living. To be interested in understanding desire can be a great thing, but I doubt I could have done it while I was still young. I dont know if you are young but I guess you might be? Perhaps you just have to battle it out, see what happens, perhaps this particular problem changes soon.
I have no recommendations on how you should act upon your feelings as it is up to you how you wish to tackle your infatuation with this girl, or the image you have of her.
