Can you apologize for coming on too strong?

I have been dating this girl for about a month, and I came on too strong. She will respond when I text her, but has stopped initiating conversation for the most part. We've gone out on dates and have slept together a couple of times, but I pushed a little too hard trying to see her more often.

We used to text everyday, haven't really talked in the past week. She's initiated one short conversation in the past week. She invited me out to a party with mutual friends next weekend, so that's the only time I will see her.

I feel like I should apologize for coming on too strong because I was too excited and didn't giver her any space. I know my personality can be over the top a bit, but I feel guilty that I may have smothered her a bit by reading the signals wrong.

Can you apologize to someone for coming on too strong? I feel like hanging with her this weekend will be my last chance to salvage anything we built.

Something along the lines of casually saying "Hey, I should tell you I feel bad. I know I was pushy about a few things and didn't respect the fact that you're busy and have your own life. I get too excited about meeting new people, and I feel like I messed up the fun we were having. I want to apologize if I made you feel uncomfortable, but I can promise you that won't happen again."

I know it's OK to be honest...I just don't know if this is the right way to do it.
