I told him that I can't fully accept the apology because even though I may forgive him I can't trust him anymore, so if he really wants us to be friends he should give me time yo see if he's changed as a person and trustworthy.
What would you do in such a situation?

He should respect that and if he doesn't then it's about him now isn't it. A woman posed essentially the same question the other day about how she hurt a guy years. ago and now she wants to be his friend and he ignores her. And what can she do to make him like her. I said "you dont"! you don't get to hurt someone then decide when they should be over it. And if you truly cared about them you would just simply say i'm your friend, i'm here for you, and i hope one day you'll find it in your heart to forgive me. and leave it at that.
Lol, from the reading, the older we get the less tolerent we become. I agree, once a pot got cracks, it will never be the same. I would move on. You can even try n forgive him but... will you really enjoy his company remembering what he did? Add to that, are you sure he won't do it again? the first time was on him, but the next time will be on you.

Depending on what your definition of "hurt" meant. If it's an ex who hurt you in the past, I'd say be careful and don't fall for his trap.
If it's someone who's mean to you because that's the way some boyish guys play with girls that they like, then I'd say be careful as well, as he could be a potential player.
If you don’t feel like you can accept their apology just yet then I think you need some time to decide if a friendship with this person is even worth it. They might end up hurting you again , & if he can’t wait for you to make up your mind on a friendship then he is not a friend.
