How to apologize in different situations?
You are late and did not warn
Sorry for coming home so late, I didnâ€™t want you to worry. I could not warn, very in a hurry, but still late, I’m sorry. Sorry if I made you worry. It was a series of circumstances. I kiss you million times.
You drank a lot of alcohol
Yes, I know that I was wrong last night. We relaxed too much with my friends and I drank too much. I am sincerely sorry and I do not want to sleep on the couch, so I promise that next time I will be careful and come home on time! I love you very much and I kiss you, kiss, kiss!
You have decided to purchase something without the consent of a girl or boyfriend
Well, you’re right, I should have asked your opinion before buying this. I did not think about it, I wanted to please myself. Yes, that was selfish. I know there are other expenses. Maybe you wanted us to choose this together. I have no excuse; I acted impulsively. Forgive me, dear.
You left after an argument
Forgive me for my impulsiveness, for leaving instead of talking. Walking away from the conversation was stupid of me. I hope we can talk tonight. I promise that I wonâ€™t run away, that we will finish the conversation, that we will calmly talk. I do not like when we quarrel. See you tonight? I think about you constantly because I love you very much!
You spend little time with children
I really love our children, and you know that. Yes, I rely heavily on you: homework, sports, breakfasts and dinnersâ€¦ I’m sorryâ€¦ I’m sure tonight we can calmly talk and come to a decision that will suit both of us. I want to take care of our children. And I love you very much!
You allow your wife / husband to take on most of your daily duties (cleaning, shopping..)
Sorry that you have to do all the housework. I know that you are tired. I acted selfishly because I did not help you. Forgive me, dear, I will do my best to help you. I do not want this to cause our disagreement.
You made an inappropriate comment to your loved one (overweight, untidy hair, etc.)
Sorry, I was wrong, I didnâ€™t mean to offend you. Of course, you are very beautiful, I like you. I should have been more discreet. Forgive me. This will not happen again. I love you for who you are. You know it, donâ€™t be offended by me, please, dear!
You forgot an important date (birthday, wedding / meeting anniversary)
I have no excuse, I know that. But you know, I always forget about dates. I did not want to upset you, forgetting about the anniversary of our acquaintance. I will try to get better. If you agree, then this weekend you will have a surprise. I love you!
You did not support your partner because of a disagreement with someone from your family (for example, with your mother)
Forgive me, I did not want to aggravate the situation. And I understand my mistake: I had to be on your side in this delicate situation, especially when you needed my support. Forgive me, I promise I will fix everything! Forgive me, I love you very much!
You’re not paying attention on her enough, and she doubts your feelings
I’m not a romantic, that’s true. I’m sorry that sometimes upsets you, but that doesnâ€™t mean that I donâ€™t love you. On the contrary! But this is my way of life. I donâ€™t think about the little things as often as you would like, but I love you.
You looked at another woman/man
You know that this act was completely innocent, unimportant. I just looked at a handsome woman, not thinking about anything sexy. But I understand that it was unpleasant for you. If I were in your place, I would not like it either, probably I would also experience anger or jealousy. I did not mean that. I look at others, but I see only you. Forgive me, dear. I love you!
You lied to your loved one (where you were, with whomâ€¦)
No lies – this is our rule, I know, and I understand that you are angry. But please do not doubt me! I donâ€™t want you to lose confidence in me because of my mistake. I didnâ€™t want to hide anything from you, I just thought that it didnâ€™t matter to you. I hope you forgive me and come for dinner today. I will wait for you!
You refused sex
I know that fatigue is no excuse, and that it can be annoying. I understand that you were waiting last night, that you had plans. I’m sorry I didn’t support you. Of course, I still want you, no doubt! This is not a problem of desire, I just was not ready because of my tiredness. I’m sorry. I promise you endless hugs for you to forgive me.
You spoke or saw your ex
I understand that this is unforgivable, but I assure you that you have nothing to fear. I met her at her request to settle matters. You know that thereâ€™s nothing between us for a long time. I love only you! I didnâ€™t want you to suffer, especially since I didnâ€™t want to hide it from you. I hope you accept my apologies and admit that I was honest with you. I promise not to hide anything from you. Answer me, I miss you!
You judge her/him for the past, jealous of former partners
When we started dating, we promised each other not to hide important things and not to judge each other. You’re right, I was stupid yesterday, there was no need to show jealousy. But when I imagine that there have been other men in your life before me, I lose my mind. I do not blame you for the past, this is your experience, but I am angry at everyone who did not love you so much you deserve. Sorry to hurt you. I love you and miss you very much!
