We broke up...we live together..I want him back! Can you help me?

I normally wouldn't post something like this, but I really need advice and it seems like people just tell me what they think I want to hear.

My ex and I have been dating for over a year. We were completely in love with each other... I'm the first person he said "I love you" to. I had just gotten out of a relationship so I really didn't want to push anything... he was the one who started to bring up future plans with me (how to raise kids, what kind of neighborhood to live in, etc). Well last year we decided to move in together... which seemed like a good idea being as we were constantly at eachother's places anyways. During the summer he started to complain that he never got to hang out with his friends anymore... but really I became friends with a lot of his friends and we would go do a lot of things together. But I guess that he wanted time alone with his friends...I kind of took offense at this because I guess I felt left out or something... it sounds really dumb looking back on it. I should probably add that he was really stressed out from school and working too. Things really escalated in the past few months... we basically broke up because he said he just didn't feel like himself anymore and he wants his freedom back. It's a really bad situation because we live together... I tried to move on but I can't. I really love him and honestly I don't feel like myself without him. So, if anyone actually read all of that I would really like to know how I should handle this situation. He doesn't want to talk because anytime we do talk about this stuff it gets drawn out... .. I'm just scared that if I leave him alone that he will move on and I will lose him forever. Please help if you have any advice...
