Is the guy I'm dating not interested and ignoring me?

I have been dating a guy and he hasn't responded to my text message for over a day, its quite unlike him. Why is he ignoring me?
I was wondering if anyone can help me understand what is happening? Has anyone had this experience before and guys in particular, what do you think? Am I over-reacting?

I have been dating this guy for just over 2 months we have been taking things slowly and just getting to know each other well. We do see each other regularly and tend to text nearly every day. We haven't made our relationship official and both lead quite busy lives.
Recently my feelings have started to grow and I am starting to quite like him, I thought the same was happening for him. Over Christmas he asked me to stay at his for a week and it was lovely to spend that much time together. I last saw him on Saturday morning as I had stayed the night and everything seemed fine.
On Sunday he went to a football match (UK) and was drinking, he was texting me on his journey home. He was a little drunk but we were messing about and everything seemed fine. I sent him a last couple of messages on Whatsapp, following our conversation, and didn't get a response (around midnight) I didn't think much of it assumed he had fallen asleep etc. I wasn't too worried as this happens sometimes.
Normally he messages me the next day just saying 'sorry I fell asleep;' however, I heard nothing. Again I wasn't too worried as we both have busy lives and I know he works hard. He is an accountant and I thought he was just managing his hangover and a morning at work.
Still heard nothing from him by the end of the day, which is unusual and I could see he had logged into Whatsapp, and was clearly not messaging me. Finally, before bed I thought I would drop him message just saying 'Hey you, how was your day? Hope you are ok?' Normally he would respond to this and just let me know he had been busy etc. But nothing. Again I could see he had logged into Whatsapp and would have seen the message. So he is clearly ignoring me!
I still haven't heard from him today. I know its hasn't been that long but I don't understand what's happened. I mean how difficult is it to drop someone a text? There has been a time before when we didn't speak for a day but that was when we first started seeing each other, things have moved on a little since then. Does this mean he is no longer interested but doesn't have the guts to tell me :( Or am i just overreacting? What should I do?
I'm quite hurt as I was starting to quite like him.
