    Although it may not be what you want to hear, it does sound an awful lot like he's playing you both. I cannot say that for certain, because I don't know him or you, but from what you have said, it sounds like he's functioning in an 'I will get what I want' kind of way. As he has apologised for this before, it is clear to see where you get your distrust from. Starting a relationship with this boy also sounds like it could be both messy and complicated, and although you dislike Mary, I am sure you don't want to see her hurt as well as you at the end of the day. It can be very difficult to get the truth from boys like this and very, very frustrating! You could try talking to him about it, but make sure that you are sure about what you want. It almost sounds like he is making excuses for his behaviour by admitting his feelings for her as well as you. If you don't want a relationship with someone where you are just half of what he wants, then let him know. I hope this helps you!
