Nothing hurts as much as fighting with someone you love. When it’s a guy you’re seeing, the pain is heightened even further.
As soon as the fight it over, you worry that you may have driven him away for good. You feel wounded by things he said to you and even things you said to him. Your heart feels cold, empty, and alone.
Did you cross the line? Did he cross the line? What’s going to become of you now?
Those are all questions you’re likely asking yourself. The good and bad news is that fights are a natural part of any relationship, romantic or platonic. You’ll need to challenge each other every so often in order to grow as people.
Because of this, you can overcome the argument and come back stronger than ever. These texts to make him smile after a fight will help you get on speaking terms and build your relationship up.
When It’s Time to Make Amends with Him
Some people would have you believe that you should always be the one to apologize. No matter what the situation, there are some who would tell you to apologize just to get the other person talking to you again.
We don’t think that is the case. At Connection Copilot, we believe there are times where extending an olive branch are necessary, and times where it’s best to stay in your lane.
So when should you reach out to him after a fight? Let’s answer that question first.
We think you should contact him first if the fight was over something relatively minor or you realize you were in the wrong.
If you’re fighting over something small like him accidentally ordering you the wrong food after you told him what you wanted, for instance, it’s more sensible to reach out to him right away. That’s a fairly inconsequential reason to argue and it’s important to let him know you’re not going to let it tarnish your bond.
But if you’re arguing about something huge like, say, your boyfriend cheating on you again…it might be time to let him stew in his own thoughts for awhile.
It’s also wise to reach out to him if you realize the argument was your fault. Maybe you’re the one who ordered him the wrong thing or you forgot something important to him. In that case, reaching out to him with a warm text could soften him up for your apology.
