Well of course you have to start off by recognizing that you were at fault. If you get into things by making excuses, he's going to tone you out immediately. He's probably going to want to chew you out a bit- and by all means, let him. You're not going to be doing yourself any favor by trying to cut him off with if's or but's.
I think you your meeting just really needs to not focus on the incident so much as it does that you're howww old now? it was the end of highschool, bitch lied to you, etc. I mean, from my point of view, he should be equally as mad at her. But that doesn't matter, because you're his buddy, you fucked him over, and years later you're still paying for it.
>>Which makes me realize that you need to pay for his meal and buy him a drink when you go out...
I think you can't really do anything other than listen to him. It was some odd years ago so nothing can be changed. If you still have contact with the girl, I advise you cut that off. But other than that, give him room to talk, fully agree with everything he says, and reiterate your apologizes.
If he isn't going to be your friend after all of this (time, apologies, dinners) then i really don't even think that it's worth your time to persue his friendship. It does sound like you two were close, and let me say again.. you DID fuck up, but if he, at this point in time, can't be mature about it and be your buddy, then just forget about it.
keep us posted.
