Welcome To The Bitchery

Need some relationship advice

Last night ManBerry and I went out with a group of friends, and it ended up being one of those nights when it would have been better for everyone if we had all just stayed home.

I was the DD, so I was the sober person in the midst of all the madness. ManBerry ended up getting really drunk and behaving like an ass. At one point, he was ordering another shot and I shook my head at the bartender (she's an acquaintance of mine). ManBerry took off, told me he didn't like me, I wasn't his girlfriend anymore, and he was going to go to the bar across the street. His friend went and stopped him. ManBerry apologized, then about 10 minutes late pretty much the same thing happened. A little later he decided we were boring and instead of waiting for me to give him ride home, he was going to walk home. By this point I was pissed off enough and trying to herd other drunk people behaving like asses to my car so I just let him go (his walk was short and his friend checked to make sure he got home).

This morning I get a text of "I'm sorry", and now I don't know what to do. I've already forgiven him because this was a one time thing, not a pattern of behavior and he certainly wasn't the only drunk jerk that night. But I know I deserve more apology than that. I'm not sure if I should respond to that text, or wait for something more. I just fear if I wait, that something more will never come and I'll have lost someone great due to an inability to look past my own hurt feelings.
