Deleting "similar" records in attribute table

I have a feature class where I have used the near table tool to calculate the distance for each feature to all other features (i.e. Feature 563 to Feature 1174/1140 in the attached picture). However, in the process it has created "similar" records where the distance is calculated again using the same features but in "reverse" (i.e. the highlighted records such as Feature 192 to 204 and its "reverse" Feature 204 to 192). I would like to know if it is possible to delete such records using arcgis's geoprocessing tools as far as possible (automated), rather than doing it manually, due to the number of records present in the attribute table (over 200k records).
