He says he doesn't have any romantic feelings but gets very emotional and cries when I try to say maybe we shouldn't be friends
He fights to stay in my life
He bought me a ticket to a show that I couldn't afford to go to. Spent, literally, his last dime doing so and came over and surprised me with it.
He is there for me no matter what I need and will go out of his way and cancel plans if I'm going through something and need to talk.
He tells me he misses me when we don't talk
We dated for 8 months and he said I was "the best girlfriend he's ever had"
We got along amazingly and always had so much fun together. We broke up because he said he was messed up and not over a break up he had with an ex 4 years ago and also said (out of anger) that he wasn't attracted to me but always used to call me pretty and sexy and our sex life was always good.
why would someone who doesn't have any romantic feelings go so out of their way for a girl? His actions are very different than what his words imply. Please help.

Actually, I disagree with you. A plausible explanation for his actions is, in my opinion, he has become attached and dependent upon you emotionally after dating you and spending time with you for eight months.
In that sense, his behavior does not, necessarily, contradict his words. You said, and I quote, "he used to call me pretty," which, by my estimation, suggests that he may no longer, or for the time being, see you as potential partner. Be it not for him crying and breaking down emotionally and such when you hinted at ending things, he is, and has been, behaving and treating you as that of a valued friend or his best friend.
After the breakup with you, has he attempted to engage in sexual related interactions with despite his claim of only wanting to be "just friends," with you? Does he attempt to interfere with you dating other guys or, in other words, has he ever become jealous of other guys in regards to you? If he did not, then perhaps he genuinely wants to be friends only with you and isn't stringing you along as KhaysunDei implied.1
