Breaking trust is like a bruise to the skin. People heal at different rates. And some people are more easily bruised hence the bruises last longer etc. and there isn't really anything you can do to make a bruise heal faster. You can cover it with makeup and pretend like it's not there, but that's definitely not the way to solve a broken trust issue. Not a healthy way at least. Skin needs to breathe, just like a person in this sort of situation. You need to give him a bit of space but make your position extremely clear in that you're superbly sorry that you've done this.
"Curiosity kills the cat" so to say.. Which you've now learned!
But just know that it might take him a while to bounce back depending on how he is as a person, his beliefs/morals and patience.. Those sorts of things and more all contribute greatly to what could become of this situation.
However, as he said, you hurt him greatly.. So be careful and show a more tender side of yourself keeping in mind that he's wounded emotionally so you should handle emotional things more carefully than you normally would.
Again, looping back to my bruise example, you wouldn't tightly grip a spot where you're badly bruised, you'd gently grip and navigate the issue with care.
I hope this helps! And best of luck to ya! :)

You really can't. You just have to give him time and let him decide if he is going to give his trust back to you. Now you have to live with your indescretion for a little while.
