Apology letters for hurting someone you love number 1

I can never forget how our love started and how you showed me love. How you made me everything to you. That feeling of deep intense affection has never left me, and I keep thanking God for bringing an amazing person like you my way. When the fights started, I was nonchalant, I pushed you away from me. Thinking you would have no choice but to come back! I was blind to my fault and mistakes. I was too selfish to just see reason!

I never wanted this to happen between us. It was never my intention to so push you away from me. I loved everything that reeks of you. Without you in my life there will never be me. But I took advantage of you and your love. My ego beclouded my very sense of reasoning. I was too angry to feel the depth of the pain you felt. You were so much in sore but I did not see it due to my selfishness.

I was asking for a lot when I knew you could only give a little. I was mad for your inability to be pushed. I kept pushing and pushing not knowing I was milking the well of our love dry!

Till you become sad and hurt. You started bottling up. I needed your love more but you have given me too much to pour and there was nothing left again! You became reclusive, angry, sad and had nothing left to give till you left!

Now I am devastated. I have missed you too much to see reason. Now my senses are back and I realized I was the selfish one. I wish I could turn back the hands of time. I wish I could show you how much you mean to me now. I cannot think of the write words to quantify the deep gap you left in my life by walking away.

I miss every moment of the day we spent together. I miss being with you and I miss your love. I am deeply sorry what all I have caused you, the pain, the heartache, the trouble and the emotional drain. I will be a better man for you, me, us. I love you so much my darling!

Please come back!

Apology letters for hurting someone you love number 3

I know I shouldn’t have lied
I should have just come out straight to give you the true picture of everything. You gave me the chance to rectify my lies by believing me. Yet I still lied again! Now I am here in bed in tears and deep regret for what I could have saved. My thoughts are filled with you as I watch you walk away in heartbreak the other day. You are my love so true. I can never do anything without you. I only need one more chance to show you I can be the special guy for you.

I only need one more chance to tell you I am a better man now. I know it will be difficult for you to trust me again but I want you to remember how we started, I was not like this. Somebody happened to me along the way that made me change drastically. This time I am ready to work on myself but I can’t do it alone. I need your love and support. Please help me.

I am sorry for the pain I have caused and this is the reason why I have written this apology letter requesting for your forgiveness. Please forgive me my love. I deeply regret my mistakes.


It's always tempting to let her know you probably had a motive behind whatever you did, however, when writing an apology letter, including.

Get your girlfriend to forgive

forgiveness letter for her

No relationship in this world is perfect, no matter how compatible you are or how much you love each other. You can love each other to the end of the world and back and still have times where one person is upset at the other one.

There is not a single relationship in the world that is immune to fighting. With any relationship, it is bound to happen whether you want it to or not.

So no matter how great you and your boyfriend are together, there will come a time when you will find that you need to apologize to him over something that he feels hurt about.

After all, you are only human. From losing your temper and being selfish to lying or cheating, there will be some instances when your boyfriend will be on the receiving end of your mistakes.

Below are some examples of apology letters for your boyfriend, as well as tips on how to write a sincere, personal letter to him. These apology letters cover a wide range of scenarios in which you might find yourself needing to apologize for something that has happened in your relationship.

Even though you can use these apology letters for your boyfriend, you should also include some details that are specific to your relationship. Examples of this include his name and what exactly you are apologizing for.

How to Write an Apology Letter to Boyfriend

Validate his feelings

Even if you did not mean to hurt or upset him, your boyfriend has his own feelings that are completely valid and these feelings should be acknowledged by you. Just because you do not see it from his perspective, it does not mean that his feelings are not real.

If you always tell your boyfriend that he has no right to be upset or that it is his fault that he is so sensitive, then that will have a negative impact on your relationship.

Your boyfriend should be able to feel like he can trust you and he should also feel safe with you. But how can he feel that way if you do not acknowledge how he feels?

You do not have to completely understand where he is coming from, but if you want to improve your relationship with him, then you should at least try to be understanding.

Tell him how you will make things right

An apology can be empty and useless if you do not show that you plan on changing things for the better. You can say “I’m sorry,” but if you do not have any intentions of avoiding this type of situation again, then your apology is useless.

In your apology letter, tell your boyfriend how you will make things better. What kinds of things caused him to feel hurt, angry, or upset? Identify those things and tell him that you will work on them.

For example, if he is upset because you do not communicate with him well, then tell him that you will work on your communication. Come up with some sort of plan so he feels like you are taking this seriously.

If you lost your temper with him, then you can say that you will try to calm down before you talk to him about things, that way he does not feel attacked by you.

These are examples of how you can express to him that you are trying to improve your relationship. On top of an apology, you are also trying to find solutions to avoid running into these problems again.

Remind him that you care

In times like these, a person can sometimes doubt their relationship. If you want to stay together, then you need to remind him that you are committed to working things out.

Remind him that you love him and that you want to make him happy. This is important as he might be feeling lost and insecure right now.

What do you love about him? What do you love about their relationship? How does he make you feel? These are some details that you might want to include in your apology letter, as they can also remind your boyfriend about the great things that exist in the relationship that you have together.

Be sincere

Avoid peppering your letter with unrealistic promises that will not be met. You do not want to be deceitful in your apology letter to your boyfriend.

Do not fill up your apology letter with things that you do not mean. There is nothing worse than offering up empty promises that you have no intention of keeping.

You have to really want to resolve this issue between you and your boyfriend. And in order to do that, you have to be honest with him. Be sincere in your letter.

Part of being sincere includes you telling the truth, not just what you think he wants to hear so he will forgive you right away and move on. When you say that you are sorry, you should really mean it.

Ask him what will help

When it comes to mending things with your boyfriend, apologizing is only a part of the solution. You will also want to demonstrate that you intend to make things better. Otherwise, what is to stop him from thinking that you will do the same things to hurt him again?

This can sometimes include asking your boyfriend how you can be better in the relationship or you can ask what would make him feel better. This will make him heard and he will feel like his feelings matter.

It can also make him feel better about your future together if you both work on how to improve the relationship. Remember that you are a team and that working together and listening to each other is important.

Examples of Apology Letters for Your Boyfriend

Apology letter #1:

Dear __________,

Together as a couple, we have made some truly special memories. We have an amazing connection that I have never had with anyone else and I cherish how special you make me feel.

I wish that every day with us could be happy, but as you know, no relationship is always perfect. Sometimes, mistakes are made and this time I have made a mistake by hurting you.

I am so sorry for the hurtful things that I said to you. I wish that I could take back every hurtful thing that I said. You of all people do not deserve this kind of treatment.

As my boyfriend, you deserve to feel loved and I hate that my words hurt you. It kills me that I was so thoughtless when I said those things.

Losing control over my temper was unacceptable. I wish that it had not happened, especially to you. I do not want our relationship to be like this and I know that it is up to me to take responsibility for what happened.

I know that just saying that I am sorry is not enough to change things. I need to think about what I say and how it affects other people, especially you of all people.

You are the most important person in the world to me, and there are not enough words to express that. I regret that I used some of my words to hurt you and I hope that you can forgive me. Just know that I am sorry that I hurt you.

Apology letter #2:

Dear _________,

We have something so good together and I am afraid that I might have ruined that forever. I hope that this is not the case, even though I know that I am the person who is at fault here.

I am eternally sorry that I completely betrayed your trust. A good, healthy relationship should be built on honesty and I was not completely honest with you about what has been going on lately. You cannot imagine how remorseful I feel over this.

You deserve to have a girlfriend who is honest with you and I have fallen short of that standard. I promise to do better from now on. No more secrets and no more lies. I do not want to risk losing you.

I need to learn to be comfortable in my own skin and to share everything about myself with you. Please give me a chance to gain your trust back. How can I make things better with us? I love you.

Apology letter #3:

Dear __________,

Because you are my boyfriend, I know that I should share all of my thoughts with you, but instead, I kept it all to myself.

I am sorry for keeping you in the dark like this. We should be partners, not strangers, and it is my fault that I feel like a stranger to you right now.

You do not deserve to have secrets kept from you and I will communicate my feelings to you better from now on. You deserve a woman who will share her whole life with you and that is exactly what I want to do.

Can you please forgive me for not being open with you? I am sorry for not expressing myself but I will work on it. I promise to let you in more. This is a relationship that I am fully committed to and I want to prove that to you.

Apology letter #4:

Dear _________,

I know that you have been feeling like you are not a priority in my life at all and I am very sorry that my thoughtless actions have caused you to feel this way.

The very last thing that I ever wanted to do was hurt you and make you feel like you were not an important part of my life. You mean so much to me, even if I have not been showing it lately.

Even though I have not been showing it enough, you are the most important thing to me. You matter the most and I regret that I did not show this to you through my actions.

Making you feel like you were being ignored was ignorant on my part. The last thing I wanted to do was make you feel like you were invisible.

I deeply regret taking you for granted. Do you know how much I appreciate having you in my life? If not, then I promise to show it a lot more.

You mean the world to me and I am so sorry if my insensitive and neglectful actions and words have caused you to doubt how much I love you. My love for you is still as strong as it ever was and I am sorry for putting you second when you should be first.

It was selfish of me to not consider your feelings and I promise to be more in tune to them. Your feelings deserve to be acknowledged and you deserve to be heard. I want to be a better girlfriend to you.

I hope you know that I love you and that you mean the world to me. I am sorry for the times that I did not put you first. Your feeling and opinions matter to me and I have been insensitive to them.

You deserve to feel appreciated and special and I want to give that to you. I am sorry that I have made you question if I love you. My love for you is still strong.

I want to do my part to help make our relationship flourish and grow stronger. I know that I can do this and I know that you are the only guy for me.

What do I need to do to make you feel more secure about us? I want to do everything I can to make our relationship a strong one.

Please forgive me for everything and I will do my best to make it all up to you. I realize that I have a lot to prove to you and I hope that you will give me the chance to do it.

Apology letter #5:

Dear ________,

You are such an amazing boyfriend, a better than I could have ever asked or hoped for. You are incredibly thoughtful, sweet, considerate, and so much more. But in spite of this, I let myself doubt your intentions.

Instead of trusting you and appreciating our relationship, I became jealous and paranoid of you even though deep down, I know that you committed you are to our relationship.

I am sorry that I let my insecurities get the best of me. Of course, I trust you and you deserve to have friends. You do not need to be asked a million questions and you deserve to have your own space when you need it.

Unfortunately, I got a little too jealous but I know that you have other people in your life and I know that you have always put me first. I have to give you credit for that.

You are the most important person to me and you should feel like you can talk to your friends and hang out with them even when I am not around. I did not mean to act so paranoidly. I am just so in love with you and was blinded by that.

I can promise you that I will work hard to trust you a lot more and I hope this is an issue that we can both move on from together. Can you please find it in your heart to forgive me?

Apology letter #6:

Dear __________,

You are a truly amazing guy who deserves to be with a woman who is just as patient and selfless as you are. Unfortunately, I did not meet all of these standards and did not give you what you deserve in a relationship. This is something that I am determined to change.

I know that it is time for me to swallow my pride and I will admit that I have messed up a few things in our relationship. I completely accept the blame for the things that I did to hurt our relationship, even if it was not on purpose.

For some reason, it is so hard for me to say that I am sorry even when I know that I am the one who is in the wrong. But I love you enough to say that I am sorry. I do not want to risk losing you.

I now realize that my stupid, selfish pride is worth nothing compared to the special bond that you and I have. What we have is something that is truly special and to me, it is something that cannot be replaced.

I am so sorry that it took this long for me to finally realize my role in the issues that are going on between us right now. You mean so much to me and I would do anything to make you happy.

Our relationship really is the very best thing that I have in my life and I want to work on making it better. Please forgive me for being so stubborn and unwilling to change things. I want to work things out between us and I hope you do too.

Apology letter #7:

Dear __________,

While I know that just saying sorry is not enough, I know that I need to say it to you anyway. I am so sorry for hurting you. I know that saying the words to you is not enough to make things better.

I want to be a better girlfriend for you. And I am determined to change so I can be a better girlfriend. I promise I will make things better for us.

You are the guy that I want to be with and I am going to prove it to you. I hope you can forgive me for messing things up so badly. Again, I am really sorry for what happened.

Apology letter #8:

Dear __________,

There is a saying that love means having to say that you are sorry. I love you so much, more than I ever thought I could love anyone.

It is an amazing feeling being able to love you. And that is why I need to try to fix this.

So here I am, telling you how very sorry I am for hurting you. You deserve an apology from me even if you did not ask me for one.

You are the sweetest guy I know and I am truly, incredibly lucky to have you in my life. Sometimes I still cannot believe that this is real, that we were able to find each other and that you love me as much as you do.

I know that when I do or say something hurtful towards you, you have a tendency to just brush it off and act like it is nothing.

When you are hurting, you do not like to talk about it or admit that you are feeling hurt. This is something that I have observed in our relationship.

But this is something I feel really badly about. I should not have done what I did and said what I said. I feel terrible for hurting you.

I promise to consider your feelings more in the future. I love you and do not want you to feel put down, disrespected, or unappreciated.


These are just a few ways in which you can apologize to your boyfriend through a letter. Whether you decide to apologize through a letter or in person, some of the words from these letters can help you make the perfect apology for him.

Just remember to be honest and to swallow your pride in your apology to your boyfriend. And if he does not accept your apology, wait patiently to see if he can forgive you. If he does not, then you know that you apologized and that you tried your best to attempt to mend the relationship.

If your boyfriend does accept your apology, then remember what caused him to feel hurt so you can avoid repeating history again. You want to improve your relationship and not make the same mistakes again.

I'm Sorry Letters

forgiveness letter for her

Sample Letter #1


I saw the look in your eyes today when you finally realized what I had done. Your pretty mouth dropped open slightly and you were at a loss for words. You didn't need to say anything, anyway, because I saw it all in your eyes--betrayal, disillusionment, revulsion. In that moment, I just wanted to crawl under a rock somewhere and hide. But now that I understand the gravity of what I've done, my actions have filled me with self-loathing and remorse. It's difficult for me to look in the mirror and I'm not proud of the man I see there when I do.

I have no excuse for what happened and saying "I'm sorry" hardly seems adequate. But if you could forgive me this time, I promise you this will never happen again. Both the suffering that I've caused you and the misery I feel now show me that breaking my word causes too much damage to both of us to ever want to do it again. Whatever selfish gratification I thought I'd gain by my foolish act has disappeared like a wisp of cloud under the noonday sun. All that remains is guilt and a stronger resolve to be not only the man you want me to be, but to be the man that I want myself to be.

I know it may be difficult to believe right now, but I really do love you and have honestly never loved anyone else. In the past year, we've become so much a part of each other's lives that I really can't imagine my life without you anymore. I don't think it would benefit either one of us to give up on this relationship yet because we've both invested so much of ourselves into it already and our good times have far outnumbered the bad. What few problems we've had in the past have been minor and we've been able to work through them with very little trouble.

I would give anything to pick up where we left off--just doing everyday things like coming back to the apartment after work, kicking back on the couch and sharing the ups and downs of each other's day. I enjoy taking turns at being chef (when we don't order pizza) and appreciate your willingness to watch a game with me once in a while. We had already started to plan our summer vacation together before this happened. Wouldn't it be great if we could still get away together for a while and try to put this behind us?

I know I'm really expecting a lot to ask you to continue making plans with me, but the alternative is too painful to even consider. Please remember all the good times we've had already, as well as all the good times that are still out there waiting for us to discover. I promise you a faithful companion who has learned his lesson and is more determined than ever to make you happy and stand by you as long as you will have him.

I know that you've gone to stay with Jan for the time being and I've given her this letter to deliver. I will call you there on Saturday afternoon and see if you would be willing to go out with me so we can have a serious talk. I can only hope...

Sample Letter #2


I'm really sorry that things kind of got out of hand the other night. Even though we feel very differently about the importance of budgeting and putting away money for a rainy day, I don't think it's something that should get between us. There are plenty of things that we do agree on, even when it comes to finances. I'm really glad that we see eye to eye on the importance of working hard, for example. It's more important to me that I know that with you I'll never have to worry if you'll pull your own weight when it comes to earning a living. You have such a strong work ethic (even if you do spend money as fast as you earn it) and that means so much to me.

You know I have strong opinions about some things (and express them stronger than I realize sometimes), but we rarely have disagreements like that one. We have always talked things out in the past, and I feel bad that we left things as we did. But maybe we really did just need the time to cool off. I think it is normal, even healthy, that we have different ideas about things--think how boring it would be if we always thought the same about everything! As they say, variety is the spice of life. We just need to remember to keep things in perspective, and not to take things too seriously.

In any case, I apologize for anything that I said that offended you. I didn't mean it. I know that you really do understand my need for financial security. I love you, and that is the only thing that really matters. Everything else, big and small, will work itself out in time as long as we are willing to give our relationship our best efforts. Matt, thank you for being so good to me, and for being so patient with me. It means so much to me, and I love you for it.

How about coming over to my place Friday for dinner? I'll make your favorite--chicken parmesan--and we can have that spinach salad that you like so much. Hot-from-the-oven French bread is always good, too, and dessert is negotiable!

Sample Letter #3


I know what I said hurt you deeply. The moment those words left my lips I knew that I couldn't act fast enough to retract them. Your reaction was justified. If someone whom I cared about had said such things to me, I would have reacted the same way. "I'm sorry" doesn't seem to be adequate. I wish I knew how to say it better. I've relived that moment over and over and wondered how I could have been so insensitive. I don't think I have ever been so disappointed in myself.

I'm nervous about asking you to forgive me. I'm sure that you've suffered a great deal because of me, and asking for forgiveness is so much to ask from you. I also know that you might find it hard to believe my promise that I will learn from my mistake and never repeat it. I truly never want to put our relationship on the line again. I hope you can believe that.

Right now, I believe in "us" because of our past ability to work through our problems. I know we have never faced a challenge so difficult before, but I feel that we have been with each other long enough to know how to try. We know how to lift each other, forgive each other, and end up stronger. That ability can only come from love. And that is what I feel for you--a love than is deeper than I have ever known; a love that can close this wound.

I love you--please believe me. I love you for your giving nature, for helping me through finals, for staying up late and typing my thesis; for the long walks; for talking about dreams and fears and hopes and hurts. We've shared so much. Let's share healing, too.

Before this happened, we were planning a trip to the desert this weekend. I know it's a lot to ask, but I was thinking that it might be an ideal place to sort this out and give me a chance to make amends. If you'll come with me, I think we can bury this thing in the sand and come away happy, with our love intact--maybe stronger than before. Would you be willing to try? Can you give me another chance? I promise you will find a better me.

I will call you on Thursday at 7:00. Please be home. Until then, I will be hoping and praying we can put this behind us.

Sample Letter #4


I am sorry. I don't want you to think that I'm saying those words lightly. I really mean them. I am so sorry. I know that what I did was wrong and I know that it hurt you deeply. I'm not sure what I was thinking, but I do know that I never wanted to hurt you. I wish I could take it back, but I can't. All I can do is try to show you how much I regret what I've done and ask for your forgiveness.

I love you. We have certainly had our share of problems in the past, but we've always been able to work through them. I think we're actually stronger because of them. I hope that this situation is no different. I will do whatever it takes for you to trust me again, so that we can go back to the way things were.

We've had too many good times together to break up over this. I take full responsibility for my mistake, so please don't give up on me now. Remember the good times like when we went parasailing in Florida or when we bought our dog. Remember how happy we were? I know it can be that way again. Please forgive me.

I want to see you this weekend. I want to start making it up to you. How about if I make dinner at my place and we rent a good movie? We can cuddle up on the couch under a big blanket and just enjoy being together. Think about it, and I'll call you tonight.

forgiveness letter for her

Uh oh, we bet you did something pretty bad that you have to scour the internet for tips on how to say sorry to your girlfriend. If she’s not having it in person, the next best thing is a sincere letter that tells her exactly how you feel.

Saying I’m sorry in a letter takes more than just writing “I’m sorry”; it takes a little more tact and sincerity than that. First, you have to own up to your mistakes. Next, you have to tell her what to do from now on. And lastly, you have to tell her why she should even consider accepting your apology.

If you’re wracked your brain for the right way to say sorry and still can’t come up with anything, then maybe these letters below will help you come up with the right thing to say to get you back into your girlfriend’s good graces.

My God, sometimes when I get struck by your beauty I completely forget why I do the things I do to upset you. You’re like an angel on earth who has stuck around with me for so long that I can’t even begin to fathom why I’d do anything to hurt you. You’re my whole life, my one true love. I’m so sorry for what I did. I promise never to do it again. Come rain or shine, you can count on me to make it right by you every single day until you find it in you to forgive me. I love you so much and I can’t bear to lose you.

I know that saying sorry is easy. People say it all the time without giving weight to what they’re saying. But what I intend to do is not just to say sorry, but to also take responsibility for what I did. I’m so sorry for what I did to you. But I’ll do anything I can to make it up to you. I might not be able to undo the damage that I’ve done, but I can do good things that might hopefully overshadow my mistakes. Just please, give me one more chance to make this right.

I’m sorry about everything that happened between us. For the past couple of months, things weren’t going the way we had planned. I’m sorry that I thought it was the best I could do. I’ve had time to think it over, and I know that it’s easier to just let things go between us. But I’m not that kind of person. I want to fight for us, even if it means apologizing every single day. But this isn’t just on me – this battle has to be fought and won by both of us. So how about we set aside our differences and try to start over?

I’ve made many mistakes in this relationship, some I know of and some I’m completely unaware of. I’ve said things that hurt you deeply. I’ve done things that I absolutely regret. I’m not a perfect person, and I don’t try to be. But I do try to be the perfect person for you because I love you. I love you with every fiber of my being. And thought I have made many mistakes in my life, loving you is not one of them. So please, take my apology, give us another chance, and I’ll show you how I can make things better for us.

There’s nothing but unbearable pain in knowing that you’re angry at me. And I can feel that it’s the type of anger that might tip you over the edge enough to leave me. And I can’t have that. I can’t live the rest of my life knowing that I’ve met the most incredible woman in the world and I let her go because of my own stupidity. I know I can be careless and distant. I know that these things have made you feel like I don’t love you. But I do love you. I want you to know that. I’m sorry that I can’t show it to you any better but what I feel for you is something so new and strange to me that I sometimes can’t handle it. I’m sorry I haven’t been giving you the care and attention you deserve. I promise I’ll do better.

I’m sorry for not being who you want me to be. I’ve wanted to be with you for so long that I’ve tried to become the person that you want, even if it’s not really who I am. I know it’s a lie, and I know that’s not fair to you. But please understand that I do this out of love for you. But now that you know who I really am, and that I’m nothing like the man you want me to be, all I can offer you is an apology. I’m sorry for loving you so much that I was willing to lie to you. I’m sorry for wasting your time. I’m sorry that I’m not someone you can love. And most of all, I’m sorry that I even tried.

I’m sorry for pushing you away each time I needed you. I’m sorry I would ignore you when you call or when you message me. I’m sorry for leaving when I knew how much you wanted to fight for us. I’m sorry for being distant when I know that I’m only doing it to help you forget me. But most of all, I’m sorry for giving up. I’m sorry for caving in and doing what’s easy. I’m sorry I didn’t do what’s right for us. I’m so sorry, but I just want us to have another chance.

I’m sorry. I should have loved you better when I could. I should have held you for longer than I did. I should have made only the promises I could keep. I should have told you that I want you to stay because I love you. I should have said something when you turned to walk away. I should have reached out to you instead of watching you disappear into the night. I’m sorry that all these regrets come crashing in when I know that you’re well on your way to trying to get over us. But if this apology reaches you before you do, please look back at all the good times we had together and tell me that you want all of it back.

If I could take back the words I said when I was angry, I would. If I could erase the memory of every single time I made you feel awful, I would. If I could make you forget about every argument, every fight, every time I disappointed you, believe me I would. But I can’t do anything of that because I’m just a man. What I can do is admit to my mistakes and tell you how deeply sorry I am for what I did. You didn’t deserve any of that, and I want to do everything that I can to make you realize that.

I would say I’m sorry but I know I owe you so much more than that. I could write it in a letter, send it to your house, and there’s still that chance that you’d throw it away without reading it. I could say it to you in person, but the mere sight of me might cause you to run away. I’m sorry that these are the responses I elicit from you because of how much of an idiot I’ve been. But please, if you happen to stumble upon this or you read enough of this letter before you decide to delete it from your phone, remember that I know I’ve made a huge mistake. I’m sorry for everything. Please come back.

You were always that ray of sunshine in my life. When I’m feeling down and glum, you always know the right words to say to me. So whenever I do something that takes the light out of your eyes, it takes the brightness out of my life too. I’m sorry for what I did to make you feel bad. I never mean to hurt you, even though you might think I do. The truth is, I’m sometimes careless with my words and actions that I fail to consider how they’d made you feel. I know that now, and I hope you can give me another chance.

Apologizing doesn’t mean you’re right and I’m wrong. It just means that I value our relationship more than my ego. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make you forgive me. I may not be able to take back what I said and did, but I can say and do things that would make you so happy that you might be willing to forget all the dumb mistakes I’ve made. This relationship means everything to me. It’s our future. And I’m not going to let that go just because I’m not man enough to say sorry.
