Apology Text Messages: Three Strategies

What did you do this time? Leave the toilet seat up? Get lipstick on his favorite shirt? Maybe you were really hungry and ate all the leftover pizza your sweetie had been saving for a midnight snack.

No matter what the transgression, be sure your sincerity matches the severity of the crime. Read on for some helpful tips.

Roof Roof Apology Text Messages That Count

Sending apology text messages requires strategy. The content and tone of the text depends on both what you did wrong, and whom you’re dealing with. Some people respond best to humor, while others are offended by anything that’s not heartfelt. Then there are the sassy, playful people who like to turn a sorry into something sexy…

Read on for tips for writing a winning apology text message no matter what your approach – sweet, funny, or sexy.

Operation Sweetness

The sweet approach is the most standard plan of attack and will work with just about anyone. What are the keys to pulling off a good apology? Show remorse. Break the iciness between you.

Apology Text Messages…A Few Examples:

“I’m so sorry. You deserve to be treated better than that. I hope you can forgive me.”

“I feel terrible that I hurt you. Can we talk about it?”

“I’m sorry. You can’t stay mad at these puppy-dog eyes, can you?”

Make Them Laugh All The Way Back To Your Arms

Tread with care when sending humorous style messages. If you did something really horrible, making light of the situation will only increase the bad blood between you. However, if it was something banal (like forgetting to buy milk), or stress related (maybe your partner just “lost it” when they heard you laughing rather loudly in front of the TV), then humorous apology text messages might be just what the doctor ordered.


“Yikes, sorry about that. It’s okay if you want to come over and glare at me for a while.”

“Savor these words because you will never see me write them again:My bad, I was in the wrong, I’m sorry.”

“I kind of owe you an apology, I guess. Maybe. Sort of.”

Sexy Little You

Admitting that you’re wrong and offering yourself up to the hurt party is one way to quickly be forgiven. Depending on your relationship, you can play with sexy apology text messages that turn a mistake into an opportunity for flirty fun.


“Would some chocolate dipped strawberries and a warm oil massage help you to forgive me?”

“I’m so sorry. I totally deserve a spanking.”

“Sorry baby. Don’t worry. I’ll make it up to you tonight.”

Sending just the right apology text message can quickly erase any hard feelings brewing between you and your special someone. Always take a few minutes to think about the situation, then pick your flavor: sweet, funny, or sexy.

Texting is a great way to stay connected with your partner. Even if calling them during a busy day to apologize isn’t possible, finding a quiet moment to send something personal is almost always doable.

    • Hi Grace,
      I’m sorry to hear what happened 🙁 While you can’t go back and change it, you can try to be your best every day. Make him notice you in a good way – do something kind for someone – or even your whole class by bringing in home made cookies or something special 🙂
