First, if it is your fault you know what has to be done, Stop by the market on your way home and buy some flowers and a card. If flowers aren’t your partner’s favorite gift then maybe a bottle of wine that can be cracked open and shared during your discussion later in the evening. If you are tight for cash a simple note will do just make sure it is sincere a simple “I am sorry” will not suffice you need to explain what you did wrong and why you are sorry. Ex: Honey I messed up….
This should put a smile on your significant others face and everyone knows the best part about fighting is the make-up sex so go enjoy your night. Now, if the tables are turned and your significant other is the one to blame then I have a few suggestions to use during your discussion when you get home. First, even if they are in the wrong do not raise your voice or get defensive. Give them a chance to explain what happened before you jump to conclusions. If they apologize be sure to accept there apology and let them know you don’t hold any grudges, you have already let it go.
Opening the lines of communication is the most important thing anyone can do for their relationship. More often than not we tend to get into little tiffs all because of miscommunication. Hopefully by this time tomorrow you and your lover will be better than ever. Just remember when in doubt be the bigger person and apologize, always accept a heartfelt apology, and make sure you are present in the conversation and keeping the lines of communication open.
