Sorry Love Letters

Sorry Love LettersAnyone who’s been in love can tell you that it doesn’t always go smoothly. Just because two people love each other doesn’t mean they will never argue.

When problems arise—and they will—I’m sorry love letters are a good way to smooth over the rough patches.

I’m sorry love letters aren’t difficult to write, and they’re appropriate whether you’ve made a large mistake or a small one. All you need is a pen, some paper and a willingness to open your heart to the person you love. Check out this simple example you can use as a guide when writing your own I’m sorry love letters:

Dear Leslie,

I’m so sorry I hurt you by snooping through your email. I had no right to invade your privacy. You are the most honest, loyal girlfriend a guy could have—that’s why I feel terrible for making you feel like I don’t trust you.

I love you so much. I’m so lucky to have you in my life. Before I met you, I didn’t know it was possible to care about someone this deeply—you’ve taught me how to love.

I promise I will respect your privacy in the future. Your happiness is the most important thing in the world to me, and I will do my best never to hurt you again.

Please forgive me.


Still need help? Here are some quick tips on writing effective I’m sorry love letters like the one above:

What should I say?
There are two things you should say in all of your I’m sorry love letters: “I’m sorry” and “I love you.” This might seem like obvious advice, but you’d be surprised how many people leave those important words out of their sorry love letters.

When saying “I’m sorry,” it’s important to be specific. Let your loved one know that you understand why they’re upset—I’m sorry love letters with just a generic “I’m sorry” can come across as being insincere. Also, make sure your I’m sorry love letters take full responsibility for your actions. If you  blame someone else for your mistakes, your loved one isn’t likely to take your apology seriously.

As for the “I love you” part—just tell them how you feel! Does your girlfriend have a beautiful smile or a great sense of humor? Is your boyfriend especially supportive or thoughtful? Well then why not tell them so in your I’m sorry love letters? Everyone likes to receive a compliment.

When should I say it?
Hurt feelings are like a disease—if left untreated, they can grown into something that can’t be cured. So apologize right away—you’ll both feel better! It’s always a good idea to give I’m sorry love letters to someone when they’ll have a chance to read it in private. They need a chance to concentrate on what you’ve said in your letter–so don’t stand there and stare at them while they read it.

What should I do next?
I’m sorry love letters are great ice breakers, but after your significant other has read one, you’ll still need to have a face-to-face discussion about the situation. They might have questions about your I’m sorry love letters—if so, just answer them honestly and listen to what they have to say.

The most important thing to do after sending someone a sorry love letter is to follow up on any promises you made in the letter. The best way to test the sincerity of an apology is to wait and see if the person makes the same mistake again. Make sure you keep your promises or else you’re likely to end up in another argument before you know it!
