Apology Letter To Boyfriend After Fight

Sometimes, when angry, we use sharp words that could hurt a person more than a sword. If you want your significant other to forget a fight and make up with you, we have a few sincere letters expressing regret over your actions and words.

1. Sweetheart,

I hope you open this message and read it before tearing it up. I know you are angry after what happened, and rightfully so. I admit I shouldn’t have done something so inconsiderate, knowing how much my decision could hurt you.

I have been repenting it every single moment. I am sorry, baby, for doing what I did. You mean the world to me, and not talking to you makes me feel helpless and lonely. Please forgive me for acting selfishly. Trust me, I never intended to hurt you. I still love you the way I always did.

Forever yours,
(Your Name)

2. Dear [Name],

It’s been a week since our fight, and you still didn’t talk to me or looked at me. You have no idea how your coldness is ripping my heart apart. I know things have been tough lately. Our jobs leave us both stressed and tired. And the way that we have been arguing shows how the tension has been taking a toll on our relationship.

But I love you too much to let a fight come in between us. I am sorry for arguing with you on the smallest of things. I’ll try to be more patient henceforth. Let’s make this work together.

(Your Name)

3. My Love [Name],

We both know how our arguments are getting more heated and hurtful than ever before. The other day, what started with a simple ‘can you please get rid of the trash’ ended up with us cursing destiny for bringing us together. It has been happening every other day, and I don’t think I can take it anymore.

To end this negative habit that we have been getting into unintentionally, I wish to say sorry for every hurtful word I have ever spoken to you. Baby, I love you more than my life. I am sorry I succumb to rage so quickly but trust me, I am working on it and hopefully will conquer it. Please let’s talk and sort it out.

Love You,
(Your Name)

I think it’s time one of us budges and brings an end to this extended cold war. Let’s face it that we both are at fault. I should not have acted so impulsively, and you shouldn’t have rebuked me in those harsh words.

I realized there should be no room for anger and resentment where there is love. And we both care about each other too much to go on like this. So, let’s leave this war behind, and let’s make love like always.

I’m waiting for you.

Apology Letter To Boyfriend For Being Mean

If you have been unreasonably mean to your boyfriend, you owe him an apology. Here are some sample letters to let him know you regret your mean behavior.

5. My Dear [Name],

This letter may come as a surprise to you, especially after my ‘not so good behavior’ over the last few months. I know I have been snapping at you unnecessarily, and I can see how you have been putting up with my mean comments. I now realize how much you love me and how lucky I am to have someone like you in my life.

I am sorry, my dear, for being such a mean girl to you. I have never tried to hurt you intentionally, but sometimes life feels so tough that my thinking gets clouded by frustration. But I promise to change my behavior. And love you the way a wonderful person like you deserves to be loved.

Yours lovingly,

6. My sweet [Name],

You must be wondering what has gotten into me, the sweet girl who you thought would never hurt a fly. Honestly, people have taken advantage of my naivety in the past, and I feared you would do the same. I thought you would also hurt me like everyone else, and hence I pushed you to the ends of your rope.

But now I know how stupid it was of me to think that way. I’m sorry I failed to put in my complete trust in you. You have been nothing but patient with me, and I am ever grateful for it.

I love you.
(Your Name)

7. Honey,

You were right about me being unusually mean lately. I realized this when my colleague pointed out the same thing about me. I’m sorry, baby, I did not listen to you before.

I don’t feel like myself anymore. I have been struggling to get my life together, but things just won’t go my way. You are the shining beacon of my life, and you have no idea how important you are to me. Thank you for always being there for me and guiding me, and pulling me up for my wrong behavior.

Love you always and forever,
(Your Name)

Apology Letter To Boyfriend For Being Insecure

8. My Sweet [Name],

I am sorry I keep demanding you to validate your feelings for me. I am sorry I keep pushing you to see if you really want to be with me. And lastly, I am sorry for not trusting your love for me. Now that you are not with me, I see my mistakes more clearly and understand what drove you away from me.

Please come back, my love. I admit I am insecure, and you are not at fault for it in any way. You have been the most wonderful boyfriend and losing you means losing my life. I’m waiting for you.

[Your Name]

9. Dear [Name],

When I’m with others, my smile conceals my tears. But when I’m alone, the smile won’t come, and tears won’t cease flowing through my eyes because my heart misses you. My biggest fear was losing you, and now that my fear has come true, I cannot express how badly it hurts

I am sorry, sweetheart, that my insecure behavior eventually got to you and took you away from me. I know you are tired of my suspicious nature and probably hate to see me again. But I have faith in my love for you, and all I want is forgiveness and another chance at ‘us.’ Please come back.

Love you forever,
(Your Name)

10. My love,

I know I have run out of reasons to justify my possessiveness for you, and I do not even wish to do the same. Today, I only seek your forgiveness for my behavior the other day. You have always been loyal to me, and I know you were not trying to flirt with anyone. But each time I see you with an attractive woman, I cannot help feeling jealous.

You have done everything to assure me of your love, but I cannot help feeling this way. But I am willing to change this trait of mine, and I need your support. Please do not give up on me.

I love you.

Please accept my apologies for the rude comments I made the other night at your family dinner. I do not dare to face you anymore. Hence, I am writing this letter.

I know you must be disappointed with my behavior, and I, too, am ashamed at my lack of manners.

Your stupid girlfriend,

If I ever get a chance to travel in a time-machine, I will go back to last Sunday and stop myself from blabbering incessantly at your cousin’s party. Of all the rude comments I made that night, the one I regret the most is telling you to shut up. I had no business acting cool in front of your relatives and making you look small. And trust me, baby, I never even intended to make it look like that.

But I can’t change anything now. All I can do is offer my sincere apologies and ask you to forgive me and forget the entire evening.

Your big-mouth girlfriend,

Please forgive me, my love. Do not be angry anymore. I can bear anything but not your silence. I have made your favorite pancakes for breakfast. Enjoy them and continue loving me.

Your stupid girlfriend,

But the absolute truth of my life is that I love you. I’m sorry I made a mistake but pushing me away from you is too harsh a punishment.

When you entered my life, I could not believe my luck at finding such a gem of a person. I knew we were meant to be together and did not want to lose you. And so, out of fear, I lied to you. I admit I am the worst girlfriend on this planet because I broke the trust of the kindest and loving boyfriend.

And I deserve to be hated. But I know you love me as much as I love you. So, please do not let this mistake of mine get between us. I am sorry for lying to you. But can’t we let it slide this once?

Waiting for your reply.

Always and Forever,

It was my ego that kept me from stopping you when you packed and left. But now it is my love that is yearning to see you again. You gave your warm hugs and kisses so freely and unconditionally that I started taking them for granted. And now, when there is no one to hug or kiss me, I feel the pinch of not having you around.

I want to tell you how sorry I am for ruining our relationship beyond repair. Yes, I know I never would have admitted it before, but now I see my mistake, and the only way to correct it i, to apologize to the man who loved me more than I love myself.
I will keep loving you always.
