I think you're in a tricky position for that. Basically, you're not really in a fighting position to make demands. That kind of thing would work if Drew was begging you to take him back ("Fine, but you'll need to re-earn my trust.") But that's not the case here. You're the one who wants a relationship again, and he's the one who doesn't.
So you basically want to find a good way of telling him that in order to get something he doesn't want as it is, he'll need to make a lot of effort before you let him. I really don't think you'll be able to do that, man. I mean, I don't see what he'd get from it.
