1. Sorry- No ‘ifs & buts’
If apologizing is the pinnacle of this article, then why are we refusing to say the big word? Let us start with the basics first. Just say sorry and do not start to justify right after the argument. Explanations might fuel the argument instead of cooling them down. Sometimes we need to give the person their space, their time to cool down. Understanding each other’s love languages is of utmost importance. If your partner needs to be hugged soon after a fight, then do it. If they are one of those who wouldn’t want to have a confrontation for a while, respect it!
If they love you, they sure aren’t going to go anywhere!
Once they are calm you can explain your reasons, your viewpoint, and your perspective of the fight. In anger, a person often may not be able to accept or understand the situation. Most importantly, just don’t apologize for the sake of doing so. Say “sorry” only when you mean it. Accept your mistake if it is your fault. This gesture is by far the simplest, but the most effective one!
2. Food- The key to a better mood
When just a simple sorry post the fight does not work, some efforts and personal touches can do wonders!

Then see what happens… you apologize, and your partner will run into your arms!
One of the ways to make your partner feel special after the fight is you can cook their most-liked dish. Good food does not only lift one’s mood but also portrays the effort one has invested. Don’t say you don’t know how to cook! If online maps can take us places we’ve never heard of, recipes available online can make you an amateur chef! Don’t worry about making a perfect dish. Worry only about making up with your loved one. Your efforts and love will never go waste. Your partner is bound to appreciate it. Isn’t that a fab idea to apologize creatively?
