How does a guy find a date when his best friend is female and needs his help?

I am presently helping my best friend through a rough time. Helping her involves seeing her six days a week for an hour or so. I have been friends with her for 20 years and we are just friends. She is not interested in me that way. I respect her honesty and enjoy spending time with her.
She has been pushing me to put myself out there more, and can’t understand why I can’t find someone to date. I don’t want to bail out on her. I have told her that most of the women I have chatted with are reluctant because of my friendship with her. I am about ready to give up until she is back on her feet, but fear that putting her needs ahead of my own will eventually end a long friendship.
Just don’t know what to do. Any thoughts?
