If your partner isn’t talking to you, you should start using your phone as a way to rebuild bridges with them by crafting some heartfelt apology text messages.
Your partner knows you’re human and that you make mistakes (even though you know you’re a goddess, but whatever). Even if you spill wine over their favorite shirt and then shrink it in the wash, they’ll be ready to forgive you…eventually!
However, what they want from you is recognition that you hurt them, and sincerity in your apology. They also need you to be good with words. Let’s take a look at apology text messages that will get you back on good terms with your partner.
Speak from the Heart
You need to apologize sincerely. If you’ve hurt your partner really badly, humor won’t cut it. Nor will a GIF. Instead, you have to be grown up and mature about things and speak to them from the heart.
Consider this example:
“I’m truly sorry – I never meant to hurt you. I honestly got carried away. You’re the dearest person to me, and I can’t live with the thought that I’ve hurt you in some way. I just want to make it up to you, and I promise it will never happen again. What can I do to make you feel better?”
It might sound a tad dramatic, but if the crime was bad, your apology has to be heartfelt. It has to mean something. You have to show them that you’re willing to do what it takes to make it up to them. They mean too much to you for you to let this one mistake ruin things.
Let Them Know How Much They Mean to You
You did something wrong. You made a mistake, and now you have to apologize. To you, it was probably a total accident. To your partner? They might be thinking you did it because you no longer love them as much as you once did.
If so, it’s important that you let them know how much they mean to you.
An ace way to do this with an apology text message is to send them a list of 5 reasons you love them. The first four should be serious, but the final one can be a bit more playful. It’s a great way of catching them off guard and making them giggle.
“1. I love your smile. 2. I love how caring you are. 3. I love the way you get excited when you have a new idea. 4. I love how smart you are. 5. Ok I miss your cooking and cannot live on these TV dinners anymore. Please forgive me.”
Got photos of you two together on your phone? (If not, we can kinda see why you’re in the dog house).
If so, collect a few of the most precious ones and send them via text. Don’t forget to include a message, too.
“I’m sorry. I love you and ‘us’ more than words can say.”
They’ll appreciate all the effort you went to. And those memories? Heart-melting stuff.
When it comes to apology text messages, there is a time and a place to be funny. Remember, as we’ve already said, if you’re trying to be funny in your apology when the mistake you made was really serious, you won’t get anywhere. In fact, you might make things worse.
If, however, you error wasn’t that bad, you can use a bit of humor to grab their attention while you apologize.
Here is an example:
“Look, I’m sorry. I’ve been spending the whole day practicing my puppy dog eye game for when I see you next. Let me come over tonight so you can stare at these frankly irresistible eyes and forgive me.”
Using a bit of comic relief can work. But as we said, it’s totally inappropriate if your partner is super mad at you for something serious. So use it wisely!
Be A Little Bit Naughty
There is nothing wrong with getting your flirt on with your apology text messages – as long as the situation calls for it, of course.
If what you did wasn’t so bad and you’d like to be a little more naughty than funny, then you can boost your apology by using it as a sexy invitation too good for them to ignore.
For example, how about this:
“I’m sorry. I know I did wrong. I’m a bad person. Heck, I was BORN bad. But why haven’t you come over and punished me yet?”
Remember, a heartfelt apology for a really serious transgression should NEVER be through text. That’s just cowardly. If you’ve really sinned, that calls for a face-to-face talk.
Voilá! The next time you get in a fight, try one of these apology text messages. Good luck! And don’t forget to let us know how it went.
