There is nothing in ASM to suggest he changed at all.
It would be like if in Iron Man at the end of the movie Tony decides to start making weapons and sells them to the Army again.
You must not have paid attention.
He made a promise he didn't want to make because the man was dying, what would any of us do.
Then he kept the promise.
He stayed away from Gwen even so far as not going to to her Dad's funeral, he only decided to break the promise because of what Aunt May said to him. She said he deserves to be happy. After this key scene is when he decided to break the promise and see Gwen again.
