How to move on after being friend zoned?

Hey everyone I really need help.
I've just been friend zoned by the guy I love. He told me he doesn't know what he wants because he knows that dating me would be so hard since we live in different countries. He wants to stay friends "for now", but I'm honestly so confused. He said he doesn't want me to ignore him and get weird. I don't know what to think. I feel so upset because we would be a great couple and he knows that, because weeks ago he would have been with me. I feel like I've lost so much time of my life thinking about a guy that I thought would be the one, and now I'm stuck in this shitty situation. I know that if I stopped talking to him I would be so sad, I would feel like something is missing in my life. But at the same time it's hard to see him without being able to be with him and give him all my love.
What the fuck
