    If your bf really screwed up, what would you want them to do to say sorry apart from actually uttering the words? I don't mean screwed up as in cheated, but sort of inadvertently insulting them hugely.

    I would want them to be sorry/look guilty and make attempts to make up for it. People say sorry all the time, doesnt mean they feel it.

    What sorts of attempts to make up for it? Any ideas?

    Firstly, they would have to immediately undo the thing they had done wrong, and make that better (its hard to advise here because we don't know that much).
    But then I'd make an extra effort go for a meal or pull the stops out by making a special picnic or CD or something.

    Personally if someone is going to say sorry to me about something, im not reall worried about the extra stuff like a gift (although one wont go a miss :p:) I think as long as the person has righted the problem and means what they are saying that is the one main thing i would expect from a apology.

    Problem is there is a physical distance between us at the moment. Cause I'm not seeing her for a few more days. So a sincere apology is hard to give. Cause there is no face to face chat.

    do something overly romantic! and not some cliche bull ****, like something he's actually put time and effort in to.. i would want to know that he meant it when he said sorry, and do everything in his power to put things right again.

    but once i've forgiven him, i won't condemn his actions for the rest of the relationship.. forgive and forget.

    I totally agree with what tom_tom_tom said. Not all girls are materialistic.

    Cheers for all the suggestions guys. . They are all good. No trolls so far XD. Anyone else got some? I'm definitely giving my admittedly worthless rep to the best.

    Well, now that some worthless rep is up for grabs, I guess I'll join in too then

    Feel guilty. Hah, sounds pretty weird but if she can see that you feel really crap and guilty about what you've done, she'll know you mean it. If she's still mad at you, don't pester her. If she's ready to forgive, she just needs more grovelling efforts from you to reprise her self-respect.

    And of course, a few little gifts can't hurt either way Expect her to reject them at first, but make sure she gets them in a way such that she can't return them, sent/left anonymously or something
