I had a falling out with a boy I fell madly in love with. I made a mistake and did something I shouldn't have towards a friend of his and we "broke up". That's in quotations because he never asked me to be his girlfriend and give us the offical dating label at the time. After 8 months of no contact, I was finally able to contact and reconnect with him. We reconnected fast and fell back in our old selves and things were going great. Our feelings hadn't changed about eachother and we still wanted to be together. We also discussed calmly everything that had happened between us. After a week of him having time to "think" about everything we discussed, he again freaked out on me. Apparently I come up in conversations with his friends who had gotten involved previously and is very influenced by them. He said after a week and convrsation with his friends he just didn't believe anything I had to say and couldnt trust me even though I was completely honest and had nothing to lie about to him. He also said the reason why he couldn't was because he couldnt trust that i wouldn't do it again even though i reasured him otherwise. I know trust when broken sometimes can't be rebuilt, but I also know if willing to try an commit, it can be regained. However he isn't even willing to try and give me some trust and believe in me. Even after agreeing that he still cares, wants to be with me and knows we are great together but he will no longer admit to it. He also said he wants to stay friends, hang out, Skype and we talk everyday for most of the day.
With all of this in mind and staying friends, even though it kills me inside. With time could he possibly learn to trust me again? by hanging out, talking and doing small things to show him he can, is it possible for him to change his mind and trust me, giving us the real shot at a relationship we deserve?
P. s... This was all over the course of a week. One week of reconnecting and not seeing eachother physically in person.
