This sounds like a problem rooted in his childhood. But there isn't much you can do, which is okay. Let him come to you. Think about what first attracted you to him... don't depend on someone for the sake of love... love should be made in the moment.
He probably thinks about you a lot. But it's here where you have to choose your battles... loneliness sucks, yes... but loneliness is always temporary whether you're with him or not. Go out and explore the world, meet people, don't be afraid. Wish you the best of luck ~
Thank you for responding. I'm really glad you agree with me, makes me feel like I might be so crazy after all. What you said rings very true, about him being unwilling to show his weakness, he's told me before that growing up he was basically taught to be weak, and emotions were a weakness because someone could take advantage of them.
I really hope he does come to me, I wasn't exactly a saint in our relationship, and we had a lot of tough times, but we also had a lot of great times. He told me once that he wanted to be with me forever, and I don't think he's the kind of person to say that lightly.
