he told me I was "the one", told me he loved me, all this stuff and then out of the blue, he wanted to breakup. we were long distance at this point - continents of long distance. I am in the US and he is overseas but still...
I miss the time together in the US - he was here for his work and then went back home. he was an expat. I also miss the long distance. I'm still in love with him.
he wants to do no contact. he says it will help us move on and the reason for breaking up was the distance was too hard. it is really hard on me though. I want to be friends, he doesn't want to be.
Idk any advice?

what it kind of sounds like is you are really really missing the thought of him and the lack of a male companion in your life. I'm sure there is a real element of missing him specifically but I'm sure if you could find someone else to be that companion you may miss the guy less.
he is right that a long distance relationship in different countries is nearly impossible to do and a clean break is best in terms of being able of move forward.
I'd suggest really taking solace in your friends and family. Lean on them for support, companionship, etc.
