Would you accept an apology via text message?

You had a really bad argument with your SO and it’s left you feeling really upset.
They don’t apologise to your face but in a text message the following day.
Would that be good enough for you?Would you accept an apology via text message?

  • Overall the best course of action is in person. It solves all the problems even if there's uneasiness which will always be there. The more serious the more in person the less serious etc. There is no such thing as an easy way out which texting does but sooner or later you have to deal with the consequences and learn the more you hide the less you want to deal in person which issues that require just that in person. If you're shy to do it in person then why be with a person to do anything with in person?

  • To me ALL apologies from the same person are equal regardless of what medium they are delivered in. The value has more to do with how they act after & their history. Words are meaningless without action/honesty.

  • It would be an okay start, but I would definitely expect us to talk it out face to face later on, especially if the argument was serious.

  • Perhaps not as an apology but as a way of opening or reopening speaking terms to resolve the issue. Sometimes picking up the phone to talk or simply just talking is a very hard first step to take after an argument.

  • Well, it depends on the content of the argument, if it's something non important that doesn't affects YOU as a person (meaning your mental or physical health) then an apology from text it's acceptable because it shows they understood there mistake but if it's the other way then an apology via text is "unacceptable" and they must apologize face to face. They must know the depth of the argument

  • I'd say it's a good start, but do have a conversation about it sometime in real life or at least over something like Skype or a call if you can't meet each toher due to some reason.

  • I think men would accept that more readily than women would.

    It does feel like a bit of a cop out to me, though. I'd at least expect a proper apology later on.

  • Hmmm, not really. Why not just call and apologize. That way i can really tell if you mean it by how you express it

  • Sure. I offer forgiveness for myself, so what triggers it is irrelevant. Forgiveness is giving YOURSELF permission not to hate. Not hating is always a good thing.

  • Unless you're avoiding them so that a face-to-face apology is impossible, apology via text is juvenile and meaningless.

  • I don't really believe in apologies through speaking. Show that you're sorry through actions, or you aren't really sorry.

  • I'd rather get the apology in person. That way, I know the person meant it. Doing it over texting is so pathetic.

    • If I know the person means it when they text it, then I guess it's fine. But I must know that they mean it. Otherwise, it's pointless.

  • I have, but that also lead to in person conversation where they apologized again

  • It depends on the significance of whatever occurred for him to apologize. Some things are better said aloud.

  • No way, he needs to speak to you in. It's easy to tell someone almost anything online, if he means it he will/should tell you in person. Otherwise he is avoiding it because it's a bit uncomfortable, and yes it probably is but if you have an argument you need to resolve it, and you can't do that properly online.
