    sorry.. i'm not a "**** boyfriend" i'm just gonna swallow my pride and then accept that i did sumat wrong ( no ide awhat) and then try and make up.... can't be bothered with this argument and i wana do the right thing
    The right thing to do would be to

    a) accept that you are a **** boyfriend.
    b) think about what you did wrong; an apology is meaningless if you don't know what you're apologising for.
    c) actually care about the fact that you upset your girlfriend and be bothered about the argument.

    Also, don't bother with the crappy laptop idea. Do something special to show her you're truly sorry and that you won't do whatever you did again.

    As shallow as it sounds it probably will. Depends on the girl as well though.
    Not if it's windows 2000

    If I was her and you bought me a netbook with ****** specifications, it'd push me more to dump your ass.

    Wait -you punched her dad?!?!

    Apologize to HIM first.

    Quite frankly you deserve to be chucked and never spoken of again.

    It would be unlikely to work very well. Even people with no knowledge of computers know the difference between slow and fast!

    £59? What a joke :lol:

    It's not a good idea. I think you should just talk with your gf and her dad and say four magic words "I am very sorry".

    ....you can also add "it's not going to happen again” :rofl:

    Screw money or gift buying.
    You have to go and speak to her in person.
    Explain to her how truly sorry you are and why it won't happen again.
    Apologise to her dad as well.
    If she accepts your apology, take her out for a meal - to a restaurant of her choice, and be on your best behaviour.

    If it was her laptop you broke, you should replace it, otherwise, girls can not be bought as popular stereotypes would like you to believe.

    basically.. long story short my girlfriend and her dad are pretty mad at me.....

    if i buy her a laptop will she forgive me..
    the laptop is 59£ and is windows 2000.. she hasn't got a laptop and i figure it will be pretty useful for her at uni.. i am currently bidding on ebay.. !

    advice

    what else could i buy her

    Did you break her old laptop? Because then I'd understand why buying her a new laptop will sort things out, but otherwise, just talk to her. I'm sure she'd appreciate a sincere apology and explanation rather than a material gift.

    Good luck!

    I thought you smashed up her stuff last week and punched her dad today? You were asking earlier if you should go round in the morning with your friends.
