I'm sorry to hear that your boyfriend was physically abusive towards you. Please don't blame yourself for not calling the cops. In the heat of the moment, it can be very difficult to think straight and you did what you could to get out and away from your boyfriend. That's all that matters. If you want to report him to the police, you can still do that. Since you have bruises and have exchanged texts with him since the attack, that makes good evidence, so it would be difficult for him to lie his way out of the situation.

You didn't put yourself in danger. You've known him for a little while and didn't know how violent he could be. That's not your fault at all.

I think it would be best to leave the relationship and cut contact with him. You shouldn't have to put up with his abusive behaviour, especially when he doesn't regret it.
