Why Apologizing is the Wrong Answer if You Really Want to Get Her Back

Most guys think the perfect answer, after a breakup, is to apologize to
the girl who got away. Some of them have a hard time understanding why
this doesn’t work – or in some cases makes her even angrier than she was
initially. Apologizing is almost always the wrong answer. Here are just a
few of the reasons why.

Apologizing is a Sign of Weakness

Fans of the hit television show on CBS have heard this a time or two
throughout its many seasons on the air. It’s one of Gibbs’ favorite
sayings. But, it is a sign of being on the weak end of the argument. You
never want to broach an argument from a weaker position.

Apologies Come Across as Insincere

Chances are good that you’ve apologized in the past. Perhaps, you’ve even
apologized for the very things she says are the problems in your
relationship. Apologies, without action, do not bring about a sufficient
result to make her happy. While you don’t have to change everything about
who you are, sometimes, you’re going to have to make some adjustments to
your nature in order to keep her happy and make her FEEL loved by you.

Apologies aren’t Specific Enough

Apologizing for “whatever you did to make her leave” isn’t going to cut
it. She needs to hear the specific reason why you’re apologizing. She
wants you to acknowledge that you’ve hurt, neglected, ignored, cheated, or
whatever it is that you’ve done. She wants to know that you understand
it’s wrong. Problem is, she doesn’t always tell you what you did. Which
leads to the next reason it’s a bad idea to apologize when your girlfriend
leaves.

It’s Too Easy to Apologize for the Wrong Thing

The last thing you want to do is add fuel to the fire by apologizing for
something you think she found out about, while failing to apologize to the
thing that’s really set her off. Talk about digging in deeper! The bottom
line, when it comes to apologies, is that there are many more ways to get
it wrong than there are to get it right. If you feel you must apologize,
it’s best to do it in writing and follow these simple rules.

1) Be specific.
2) Make your apology brief.
3) Keep it simple.

Putting it in writing prevents a fight, gives her time to think it over,
and provides a neutral setting where she can process the apology and what
it may mean for your collective futures.

Apologies, for the most part, have a negative impact on the future of the
relationship. Instead of a apologizing, look for positive aspects of the
relationship and attempt to capitalize on how good you were together
rather than revisiting mistakes that were made along the way.
