So I guess we're breaking up?

I've mentioned on here before that things are hard right now, and I hate being that person who only seems to say negative things, but I really don't have anyone else to talk to this about and it's just killing me. I think my boyfriend of six years and I are breaking up. He won't answer his phone, and he has been living with his parents for a few weeks (while I am living with mine, because we are unemployed and can't afford to live together anymore). We have lived together for years, we are sorta engaged, we have cats and bank accounts together. But he won't speak to me.

Here's how this week went: Sunday, no answers to any of my calls or texts. Monday, no answers. Tuesday he shows up at my parents' house without calling first, and drives me to an appointment downtown. I don't have a car or driver's license. He acted happy to see me but mentioned that things with his father were bad (they do not get along). He wouldn't talk about this, and was very distracted. Wednesday, no calls or texts. Thursday, no calls or texts. Friday, he showed up (with his brother) to my sister's party, after not talking to me all day. I had invited them last week. He had a few beers but there were a lot of people over and I was being the host so we did not really have a chance to talk. He refused to stay the night, sobered up and drove home instead at 3 in the morning despite me literally begging him to stay. He texted me to let me know he got home safe, and I haven't heard from him since.


He's acted like this before, and the last time (after five days of silence, at a time when he was living with his parents and I was at our apartment alone) I told him very clearly how his silence hurt me, and how I would only stay with him if he promised to fix his communication issues. He swore he would never do it again. Well, now he is. And I just don't know what to do. I can't get ahold of him. I know he's ok, nothing bad has happened. He's just not speaking to me, at all. I think this relationship is ending and it hurts so much.
