Is your girlfriend angry with you? Chances are you may have done something that really upset her whether intentionally or not.
Offending your partner in a relationship is almost inevitable, just like every good thing love also has it’s up and down.
There are flaws in each human and agreeing to date someone, is you subscribing freely to live with their flaws for a long time. Hence, with the diverse flaws, there will definitely be arguments and fights. If not properly handled, the fights can lead to breakups and bigger issues.
There are ways you can appeal to that woman you love and issues would be resolved easily. Below are some ways to get her to forgive you.
Express your regret
Look her in the eye and tell her you feel awful about making her upset. Saying ‘sorry’ isn’t enough especially if you’re mumbling the words under your breath or sulking. Be heartfelt and genuine. Keep any sarcasm from your tone, too. You never want to downplay an apology by saying: “I don’t think I said/did anything wrong, but I’m sorry you’re taking it the wrong way.
Explain what went wrong
Intentions are everything when it comes to right and wrong. It makes a big difference if you hurt her feelings on accident versus if you set out to hurt her. Say you were coming from a completely innocent place and would never intentionally make her feel belittled. Don’t tell her she’s over-reacting (even if you think she is).
Reconciliation begins with asking for forgiveness. Apologize with sincerity and start the healing process. This is often the hardest step because it means that you have to take responsibility for your actions.
Give her some time
The biggest mistake a guy can make when apologizing is not knowing when to leave her alone until the event dies down a little, so step back and let her dwell on the situation. Giving her time to think things over about your mistake can help her realize the situation, and it saves you from having to apologize a million times to her for your actions. If she is too angry to talk to, simply step away and chill out until she is ready to talk if the opportunity presents itself.
Tell her you’ll fix things
The second most important element of an apology is offering to fix things. One concern about apologies is that talk is cheap, but by saying, ‘I’ll fix what is wrong,’ you’re committing to take action to undo the damage. Show her you mean what you say by backing up your words with actions. Sometimes just this gesture alone will resolve the argument without you having to physically do anything.
