Apology Letter to Boyfriend

No relationship in this world is perfect, no matter how compatible you are or how much you love each other.

You can love each other to the end of the world and come back and still have moments where one person is upset with the other.

There is not a single relationship in the world that is immune to fights and arguments.

So, no matter how good you and your boyfriend are together, there will come a time when you find that you need to apologize to him for something he feels sorry for.

After all, you are only human.

From losing your temper and being selfish to lying or cheating, there will be some instances where your boyfriend will be getting your mistakes.

Below are some sample apology letters to your boyfriend, as well as tips on how to write a heartfelt and personal letter to him.

These apology letters cover a wide range of scenarios where you may need to apologize for something that happened in your relationship.

Even though you can use these apology letters for your boyfriend, you should also include some specific details about your relationship.

Examples of this include his name and the reason you are apologizing.

How to Write an Apology Letter to Your Boyfriend

Validate your feelings

Even if you didn’t mean to hurt or upset him, your boyfriend has feelings of his own that are completely valid and those feelings should be acknowledged by you.

Just because you don’t see it from his perspective doesn’t mean his feelings aren’t real.

If you keep telling your boyfriend that he has no right to be upset or that it’s his fault he’s so sensitive, it will have a negative impact on your relationship.

Your boyfriend should feel he can trust you and he should also feel safe with you.

But how can he feel that way if you don’t recognize how he feels?

You don’t have to fully understand where he’s coming from, but if you want to improve your relationship with him, at least try to understand.

Tell him how you’ll make things right

An apology can be empty and useless if you don’t show that you plan to change things for the better.

You can say “I’m sorry”, but if you have no intention of avoiding this type of situation again, your apology is useless.

In your apology letter, tell your boyfriend how you are going to make things better.

What kind of thing made you feel hurt, angry or upset?

Identify these things and tell him that you will work on them.

For example, if he’s upset because you don’t communicate well with him, tell him you’ll work on your communication.

Create some kind of plan so he feels like you’re taking this seriously.

If you’ve lost your temper with him, you can say that you’ll try to calm down before talking to him about things so he doesn’t feel attacked by you.

These are examples of how you can express to him that you are trying to improve your relationship.

In addition to an apology, you are also trying to find solutions to avoid these problems again.

Remind him that you care

In times like these, sometimes a person can doubt their relationship.

If you want to stay with him, you need to remind him that you’re committed to working things out.

Remind him that you love him and that you want to make him happy.

This is important as he may be feeling lost and insecure right now.

What do you love about him?

What do you love about the relationship?

How does he make you feel?

These are some details you can include in your apology letter as it can also remind you of the great things that exist in the relationship you have together.

Be honest

Avoid peppering your letter with unrealistic promises that will not be kept.

You don’t want to be misleading in your apology letter to your boyfriend.

Don’t fill your apology letter with things you didn’t mean.

There’s nothing worse than offering empty promises that you have no intention of keeping.

You really need to resolve this issue between you and your boyfriend.

And to do that, you have to be honest with him.

Be sincere in your letter.

Part of being honest includes you telling him the truth, not just what you think he wants to hear, so he immediately forgives you and moves on.

When you say you’re sorry, you really mean it.

Ask him what will help

When it comes to making things right with your boyfriend, apologizing is only part of the solution.

You will also want to demonstrate that you intend to make things better.

Otherwise, what’s to stop him from thinking you’ll do the same things to hurt him again?

Sometimes this can include asking your boyfriend how you can be better in the relationship, or asking what would make him feel better.

This will make him heard and he will feel that his feelings are important.

It can also make you feel better about your future together if you work on how to improve your relationship.

Remember that you are a team and it is important to work together and listen to each other.

Dear __________,

Together, as a couple, we created some truly special memories.

We have an amazing connection that I’ve never had with anyone else and I appreciate how special you make me feel.

I wish every day with me could be happy, but as you know, no relationship is always perfect.

Sometimes we make mistakes and this time I made a mistake by hurting him.

I’m sorry for the hurtful things I said to you.

I wish I could take back all the hurtful things I said.

You of all people don’t deserve that kind of treatment.

As my boyfriend, you deserve to feel loved and I hate that my words hurt you.

It kills me to remember that I was so thoughtless when I said these things.

Losing control over my temper is unacceptable.

I wish this hadn’t happened, especially to you.

I don’t want our relationship to be like this and I know it’s up to me to take responsibility for what happened.

I know that just apologizing isn’t enough to change things.

I need to think about what I say and how it affects other people, especially you of all people.

You are the most important person in the world to me, and there are not enough words to express it.

I’m sorry I used some of my words to hurt you and I hope you can forgive me.

Just know that I’m sorry for hurting you.

Apology Letter #2:

Dear _________,

We have something so good together and I’m afraid I’ve ruined it forever.

I hope that’s not the case, even though I know I’m the one at fault here.

I am eternally sorry that I have completely betrayed your trust.

A good, healthy relationship must be built on honesty and I haven’t been completely honest with you about what’s been going on lately.

You can’t imagine how remorseful I feel about that.

You deserve to have a girlfriend who is honest with you and I didn’t live up to that standard.

I promise to do better from now on.

No more secrets and no more lies.

I don’t want to risk losing you.

I need to learn to feel comfortable in my own skin and share everything about myself with you.

Please give me a chance to regain your trust.

How can I make things better with us?

I love you.

Dear __________,

Because you’re my boyfriend, I know I should share all my thoughts with you, but instead, I kept it all to myself.

I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark like this.

We’re supposed to be partners, not strangers, and it’s my fault I feel like a stranger to you right now.

You don’t deserve to have secrets kept, and from now on, I will communicate my feelings to you.

You deserve a woman who will share her entire life with you and that’s exactly what I want to do.

Can you forgive me for not being open with you?

I’m sorry for not expressing myself, but I’ll work on it.

I promise to let you in more.

This is a relationship I am fully committed to and I want to prove it to you.

Apology Letter #4:

Dear _________,

I know you feel like you’re not a priority in my life, and I’m so sorry that my thoughtless actions made you feel that way.

The last thing I ever wanted to do was hurt you and make you feel like you weren’t an important part of my life.

You mean a lot to me, even though I haven’t shown it lately.

Even if I haven’t shown you enough, you are the most important thing to me.

You are the most important and I’m sorry I didn’t show that to you through my actions.

Making you feel like you were being ignored was ignorant of me.

The last thing I wanted to do was make you feel invisible.

I deeply regret taking it for granted.

Do you know how much I appreciate having you in my life?

Otherwise, I promise to show you much more.

You mean the world to me and I’m sorry if my callous and careless actions and words have caused you to doubt how much I love you.

My love for you is still as strong as it ever was and I’m sorry for putting you second when it should have been first.

It was selfish of me not to consider your feelings and I promise to be more in tune with them.

Your feelings deserve to be acknowledged and you deserve to be heard.

I want to be a better girlfriend for you.

I hope you know that I love you and that you mean the world to me.

I’m sorry for the times I didn’t put you first.

Your feelings and opinions are important to me and I have been insensitive to them.

You deserve to feel appreciated and special and I want to give it to you.

I’m sorry I made you question whether I love you.

My love for you is still strong.

I want to do my part to help make our relationship blossom and strengthen.

I know I can do it and I know you’re the only one for me.

What do I need to do to make you feel safer with me?

I want to do everything I can to make our relationship strong.

Please forgive me for everything and I will do my best to make it up to you.

I know I have a lot to prove to you and I hope you’ll give me the chance to do so.

Apology letter #5:

Dear ________,

You are an amazing boyfriend, better than I could have ever asked for or expected.

You are incredibly thoughtful, kind, considerate and so much more.

Despite that, I let myself doubt his intentions.

Instead of trusting you and appreciating our relationship, I was jealous and paranoid with you, even though deep down I know you’ve committed to our relationship.

I’m sorry I let my insecurities get the better of me.

Of course, I trust you and you deserve to have friends.

You don’t have to ask a million questions and you deserve to have your own space when you need it.

Sadly, I got too jealous, but I know you have other people in your life and I know you always put me first.

I have to give you credit for that.

You are the most important person to me and you should feel like you can talk to your friends and hang out with them even when I’m not around.

I didn’t mean to act so paranoid.

I’m so in love with you and I was blinded by it.

I can promise that I will work hard to trust you a lot more, and I hope this is an issue that we can change together.

Can you please find it in your heart to forgive me?


These are just a few ways you can apologize to your boyfriend through a letter.

Whether you decide to apologize through a letter or in person, some of the words in these letters can help you make the perfect apology.

Remember to be honest and swallow your pride in your apology to your boyfriend.

And if he doesn’t accept your apology, wait patiently to see if he can forgive you.

If not, then you know that you apologized and that you tried your best to try to mend the relationship.

If your boyfriend accepts your apology, remember what made him feel hurt to avoid repeating the story again.
