It’s not a big deal right? Your significant other asks you to do… something. But over the course of the day, something really important happens, or even a few important things, and you get sidetracked. Wrong. The first step in apologizing for your forgetfulness is realizing that even if it feels “out of your control”, they are your actions, and they have a real impact on your relationship.
Note: If she already dumped you (so really, she’s like an “ex-girlfriend”), you might want to use this Apology Letter to Girlfriend instead.
You’ve got to remember that nothing in a relationship is just about what it appears to be on the surface. It would be crazy for your girlfriend to freak out over grabbing some milk from the gas station, but what she’s really worried about is your reliability. Keep that in mind as you write your letter to apologize for forgetting..
I forgot to pick up the mattress yesterday after work. You told me about the mattress twice during the day, but I couldn’t manage to remember. I came inside and fell asleep on the couch. By the time you got home from work yourself, the mattress store had closed.
I didn’t mean to forget, and I didn’t mean to have an argument the next morning. You’re absolutely right: we’re too old to be sleeping on couches, even for a night. And this isn’t the first time that I’ve forgotten something important. Whether it’s something “small” like getting certain things from the grocery store or bigger things like picking up the kids from school… I know all of it is important, because I want to be somebody you can depend on and trust.
So, I want to break this habit. Bear with me, it’s going to take a little time. I’ve got some software for my phone that will allow you to give me automatic reminders over the phone when I need to get something done, a bit like an alarm. I’ll feel a little weird at first, but it’s something I’m ready and willing to do.
