I know what you're saying about how an apology isn't necessarily enough to fix something. it usually takes me a few hours to get back into a good head space. I've worked on this though but reminding myself that my partner doesn't have bad intentions... they are human and make mistakes and should be forgiven for those mistakes
the trick is to never make her upset xD if she is, i just ask her how i can redeem it.
Isn't that two different things? I mean on the one hand there are things which truly hurt you and on the other there are things which you are justified in being upset about.
You and your partner might very well define those things quite differently. I am quick to apologize and make it up if I am convinced I am in the wrong but just because my partner is upset is not enough to convince me. She had better have a good reasoned argument or she can be as upset as she likes, it won't move me an inch.
I have this problem too :( my ex said sorry to me twice in the entirety of our relationship and then it broke down because of his unwillingness to apologise and my absolute rage about this. It's horrible. I just want a guy that knows when he's wrong and how to apologise :/ seems too much to ask.
