Why do friends sometimes stop talking to you for no reason?

I have a guy friend that i was talking to everyday almost for the past 4 months up until now. I'm 25 and he's 20. We've known each other 2 years prior to this but never talked much.
At first yeah, i think we liked each other as a little more than friends with the constant flirting. But i think it gradually turned into this just friends that like talking all the time (we both thought it was a little strange us talking this much to each other, but i think we both enjoyed it).
We never hung out (it never got past the we should hang out conversation) which was fine by me, i just enjoyed his company and having someone to talk to all the time.
Over the course of the past 2 weeks or so it gradually became less and less. Until this week where i've not heard from him since Monday.
I don't think i said anything i normally shouldn't have, because i guess in a way he's still around since he's commenting or "liking" stuff i post on facebook (not that that really means anything).
A few people i've talked to have told me i should tell him i miss talking to him, or ask him if he's okay but i just don't feel comfortable doing that at all. I'd feel pushy, and annoying if i did. I'd rather him contact me next since i sent the last message.
I've had similar experiences and i got over them, but in comparison they never felt like this. It's waking me up at night sometimes, and i'm taking my anger out on everyone because of it :/
I'm sure none of you know why he stopped talking, it's anyones guess. I'd just like to know if theres anything i could do. Or if any of you have gone through something similar in the past?
