My ex confessed to me how he truly felt but with the influence of alcohol. Even got emotional but when he's sober he's too proud/defensive to tell me how he truly feels. In hindsight, he has said that I have a 'i don't give a f#ck' attitude. It's not that I do, it's just I'm not going to beg for someone to be with me, which is what he more or less expected me to do.
Should I believe what he said to me? I'm really confused as to believing it. He seemed really sincere. All my girlfriends say to forget about him and move on but a friend of mine who's 15 years my senior, and male friend, says it takes a lot for a man to be vulnerable.
I just want other guys to give me a bit of experience/opinion/advice on the matter.

There is no way to really know. When people drink they do say things that they are thinking but wouldn't normally say. Odds are probably in favor that he means it, but it's not reliable.
"when he's sober he's too proud/defensive to tell me how he truly feels"
"I'm not going to beg for someone to be with me"
So you are both doing more or less the same thing. Now it's an impasse. He won't give in and you won't give in.1
