how to say your sorry, without words? - February 11th 2009, 11:04 PM

I screwed up with one of my friends.
I was a complete ass hole and there is no excuse for what I did.
If I were him I wouldn't talk to me ever again.

I said I'm sorry already.
But taht's not good enough.
He still hasn't forgiven me (i don't blame him at all)

So I was thinking of ways to apoligize, without words.
They say actions speak louder than words.

So I'm drawing a pic of the 2 of us and writing a letter.
I'll give it to him on valentines day.

But I still feel like I need to do more.
Any ideas?

It needs to be creative and realitivly cheap (Under $10)

Thank you!

I would love to talk to you!

I don't think a picture is going to make everything all better. :/ I don't see how that's supposed to fix things, but it's a good idea.

I would sit down and talk with them. Give them some time to calm down.

I generally just hold down the person's hand and stare at them. And talk.

The letter and picture sounds like it'd be nice. Maybe cookies? But nothing beats a friendly gesture, honest look, and readiness to talk it out. All three of those are free.

Re: how to say your sorry, without words? - February 11th 2009, 11:44 PM

errr.

i wish i could talk to him.

but he isn't talking to me.

infact he's completly ingnoring me.

So talking to him won't really work.

I guess my goal in giving him the letter and drawing is to get him to at least talk to me.

I was thinking of also writing down all of our best memory's together.

but that seems kinda corny.

and i don't want to go overboard.

i do like the cookie idea though.


Any other ideas?

I think just give him some time right now, he probably already knows you're sorry but it may take some time to sink in. Let him process what happened and maybe approach him at a later time.

Everyone I know is telling me to just give him time.
I hate waiting.
I hate feeling so guilty.
I've lost a ton of weight because of this.
I'm getting sick.
And at school, they were selling carnations that you could have delivered to people.
I bought him one.
They were supposed to hand them out today, but it was a snowday.
I really hope they hand them out on Monday.

Maybe you just have to earn his trust back? Instead of saying sorry[or getting him somthing], just try being kind/helpful/friendish. If he doesn't respond just back off, and try agian later.

but how do i go about doing that when he won't even talk to me? I really wish I could be friendly and kind, but whenever I try to approach him, he walks away.

Then maybe you should give him some time to cool off. How long ago did.. whatever happened, happen?

Last Friday night, so a week from today.
A mutual friend is hanging out with him tonight.
She's going to try to gage how close he is to forgivness.
I'm so sick of waiting though!

A week really isn't that long, though it feels like forever to you(I would guess) As I said before, just give him some space to chill, maybe he'll come to you.

It seems like it's been over a month!
I think I'm going to try super duper hard to give him space.
But that's really hard for me.
Hopefull tonight my friend can figure out how close he is to forgiving me.

I think it's a great idea. If someone took the time to make a picture for me I would know they are sincerely sorry and as long as it wasn't something we couldn't get pasted I would surely be friends with them.

If however he still doesn't want to be friends after this you can assume he is just saying no because he likes you apologizing and how you keep on trying to be friends again. So he'll be forced to put in the effort then slowly become friends again.
