Learning the right way to say sorry to your girlfriend will help your relationship last longer.

There is a wrong way and right way to apologize to your girlfriend after a big fight. A lot of guys choose the wrong way and find it to be very ineffective, but some guys are smart enough to know what to say and do so that they are able to successfully make up with the woman they love. Knowing how to say sorry to your girlfriend is crucial if you want to be able to get past the big fight and prolong the relationship.

Apology Mistakes to Avoid

There are a few apology mistakes that every man should avoid in order to apologize effectively. By knowing what these mistakes are, you will be sure not to make them when you are trying to make up with your girlfriend.

1.) Begging- A lot of guys find themselves on hands and knees begging their girlfriends to forgive them. You know the routine, "Please baby just give me one more chance. I'm sorry! I'll never do it again!" Begging should be avoided at all costs because it is not only an ineffective way of apologizing but it is very unattractive as well.

2.) Apologizing Repeatedly- Some guys find themselves in a position where their girlfriends will not accept their apology, so they keep telling her how sorry they are. This is not something that is going to make her change her mind. No matter how many times you tell her sorry if you are not doing it effectively, then she is never going to accept your apology.

3.) Bringing Up Her Faults- Sometimes when a guy cannot get his girlfriend to accept his apology he goes off the deep end. He starts bringing up things about his girlfriend that are not perfect trying to cancel out the wrong thing he did by throwing the wrong things that she has done in her face. This is no way to make a girl accept an apology and it simply will not work.

The Right Way to Say Sorry to Your Girlfriend

Now that we know about some of the wrong things men do when apologizing to their girlfriends, it is time to find a couple of right ways to say sorry.

The first thing you want to do when you are trying to make up with your girlfriend is set up a time that the two of you can sit down and talk. This will ensure that you are not distracted by anything and she is not distracted by anything.

Make sure all cell phones are turned off and that you each are giving your full attention to the discussion.

At this point, there is no need in rehashing the argument that took place. All you want to do is talk about the issue(s) that were uncovered in the argument. Rehashing the argument will only get things started back up and will make the discussion turn into another argument.

Tell her that you are sorry for the pain you caused her and why you are sorry for whatever the issue(s) was that caused the argument in the first place.

After you have discussed all of the issues like mature adults, she should either accept your apology or tell you why she cannot accept your apology. If she will not accept your apology then you must be understanding of that and be willing to live with the consequences of your actions. If she does accept your apology, then everything in the relationship should be back on track and you will be able to move forward.

If you really made her mad and she will not make the time to sit down and discuss the issue(s) with you, then there is an alternative approach to getting through to her.
