Please don't tell me to report it or anything, basically this guy who was supposed to be my friend took advantage of me while I was in a vulnerable position, all I want to know is how to get rid of this dirty tarnished gross feeling I have all the time now, it's even a few months and I still feel disgusting because of it

So sorry to hear about what happened to you.
I'm fortunate never to have been in your position, but here are a few things that I hope might help:
- therapy/counselling - letting it all out to a professional can be really helpful to some people, and they might be able to teach you coping strategies for when you're feeling particularly bad
- 'reclaiming' your body - go to the gym, get a tattoo, piercing, even just get a new haircut, and remember that it's your body that you can do whatever you like with.
- try posting in the Mental Health Support Society on here - we've got a few members who sadly know exactly what you're going through
- talk to friends/family, they might be able to help you come to terms with what happened, or help you move on.

I'll add as well that time makes it easier, a few months is not very long at all to expect yourself to be 'over' something so traumatic, give yourself some time and TLC and you will get there
