Why are men so stubborn about apologizing when they hurt a woman?

when you have a big ego and pride that can stop you form doing the most simplest things like just saying sorry and really meaning it, I would say if his friend talks about him wanting you back again give him subtle hints that will help and he will probably go back and tell him but I have a boyfriend that acts like his pride is on the line if he just admits that he is wrong, and that he is sorry and sometimes that's all you need to make it not hurt so bad.

If he's two-timing you now, why would you want him back? Find yourself a guy who'll love and respect you.
He probably doesn't think he's done anything wrong, hence no apology.
pride before the fall..

guys are stubborn and they're afraid of your reaction.
that's what stops them from apologizing.
they know they're wrong.
whether or not they'll learn from it, is a different story.
at least they know they did something wrong & they are sorry inside, even if it's a little sorry, they're still sorry.
I mean it may sound like a lot but if he wants you back that bad to the point where he is storming around all grumpy he should fall into it nicely
Their pride and their ego are too big to allow them to admit when they have done something wrong like that.
If a guy knows he did wrong like cheating but won't apologize that is not a good sign. Don't take him back or accept anything until he apologizes! Ignore him and maybe get another guy so he can see "i better step my sh*t up before I lose a good woman" he probably will end up apologizing soon but for now act like you couldn't care less about him. if he will 2 time you with a friend of his are you sure you really want a guy like that anyway? most likely he will do it again. I think you should just move on
I personally, do not care for apologies... I like a change of relating behavior or action, that les me now, that he RESPECTS himself, me , our relationship, & just the fact that we are human beings... I think CHANGE should precede the apology, or at least , follow the apology , straight away... GUs do that too much - Oh. baby o am sorry.. Goo I am absolved, I can go f*** up for the next apology- t becomes yet another game..
Anyways, when I hear 'i am sorry' I hear " I think I hurt you, maybe wanted to , but this is my way of saying I know I hurt your feelings, & poor you look how I have made you sad, & you will forgive me, cause yo love me, & I really will not remember this tomorrow, so remind me what it was I did wrong, the NEXT time I do it. LOve you, but have no respect for you - yours truly.
