So I caught him out on his lying and he completely shut off and didn't talk to me, didn't say sorry. It's day 2 and he STILL hasn't apologised. AND we live together.
I've been told to let him have his space because shutting off and being angry is his way of coping with being wrong apparently.
Is there anyone out there that shuts off like him and will he eventually apologise?

Hmmm. Kinda think you are both to blame here. He wanted a boys weekend away. That generally means time with just the boys to do their guy stuff without interruption or distraction from their ladies. So you called about something that was important to you, but maybe something that could have waited for him. Then you texted a bunch of times. Now he is getting annoyed with you and feeling you do not respect his wishes and feels you do not trust him and can't give him some time or space. It is kinda a guy thing to be respected within your circle of friends. No guy wants to be labelled as "pussy wiped". He may have felt that since you tried to contact him so much. So for that, I fault you. On the other hand it only takes a few seconds to text someone back to let them know and acknowledge them, so for that I fault him. I think to save face, you need to apologize to him for taking away his "boys weekend" and just let it go.

It sounds like he may have been telling a white lie so you wouldn't be upset when he didn't want to talk to you on the weekend. Have you asked him why he lied about it? Maybe there is something more to this, like he needs some space but doesn't know how to tell you.
