I wonder what your best result would be, here ? To end the relationship with him altogether ? To agree to a continuing friendship, but on your terms and definition of friendship ? As straycat says, the "he hurt me" generally indicates a sound reason for ending it. His reaction in some ways confirms your view that the benefits to him arising from the arrangement were significant --- for him. Is it practical to get him to understand why treating you the way he did is unacceptable to you, and is it realistic to expect him to change in that regard ? If so, maybe a further trial of this new arrangement could be worth it. If not, it'd just be recycling unpleasant experiences, and not worth doing.
