40 I’m Sorry Quotes for Him

By on November 7, 2014

Perhaps you just had a major argument or a major relationship disaster. No matter what the problem was, there are many different ways that you can say your sorry. The different I’m Sorry quotes for him on this list should be used according to the seriousness of your transgression. If you simply told a white lie or a small fib, a cuter quote may be the perfect solution. For a drunken affair or broken hearted mess, you will need to step up your game. All of the sweetest I’m sorry quotes in the world will pale in comparison to a serious transgression. For these instances, begin with saying I’m sorry and keep saying it. Serious betrayals take time and effort to heal. In these instances, the quotes on this list will help with only breaking the ice. You will have to put in the extra work to ensure that your boyfriend or spouse forgives you.

1. Although I may have a hot temper, it is not hotter than you. Please, please, please forgive me.

This I’m sorry quote is not designed for a serious betrayal or transgression. Short and cute, this quote works best for a simple misunderstanding or run-of-the-mill argument.

2.Right now, I feel bad because I made you so unbelievably sad. Tears of sorrow cross my face as I wish that I could take your place. Forgive me, my love.

This quote is a little more serious than the first quote, but it is still not the best selection for a major issue. This rhyming quote is well-designed for slightly serious transgression. If you do send off a message like this, you should make sure that you mean it. Nothing is worse than telling a loved one something that is not true.

3. All I want is for you to grasp me in your arms and hold me closely. I just want to listen to your breath as I offer my apologies and hold your hand. Give me a hug or a kiss, my love, and make everything be forgotten in the past.

It may take some time for things to truly be forgotten, but using an I’m sorry quote like this is an excellent way to start.

4. There are no words to explain how sorry I am for doubting you. It is just impossible for me to believe that such an amazing, sexy man could ever be interested in me. I cannot deny my jealousy, but know that I am trying to control it.

If you recently had an argument about jealousy or possessive attitudes, this is the first step toward improving the situation.

5. A long time ago, you told me that you would do anything for me and even die for me if it came down to it. All that I need to ask from you to do is a chance to be heard out. I made a mistake. Don’t die for me or do anything, just let me apologize this once.

If he has promised the world to you in the past, you should remind him of this during a serious argument. A man who is willing to die for you should also be willing to forgive you at least once.

6. Forgiveness is just a part of being in a relationship. Although my goal is to limit the number of times that I must seek your forgiveness, it cannot always be helped. Please accept this apology and let’s put these pain-filled days behind us.

When you have a big fight, the best thing that you can do is be honest and express exactly how sorry you are. He needs to know that you really regret what happened and that you will do anything to prevent it from occurring again.

7. If I could turn back time, I would go back to that moment and un-say everything. Please forgive me, my love. I cannot turn back time, nor can I unspeak the words that have been spoken.

Slightly poetic, this I’m sorry quote says what needs to be said without wasting words.

8. Forgiveness is always a part of the relationship. I hoped that I would never have to ask for your forgiveness, but it is too late. Will you forgive me?

Ask him directly if he will forgive you. If he is not willing to put this issue or fight in the past, then perhaps you two were not meant to stay together forever.

9. It was never my intention to hurt you or cause you pain. Destiny conspired to drive this wedge between us and all I want is for this burden to be lifted. I’m sorry.

Apologizing is the first step toward making things right. If you want to, you can make this quote more specific so that he understands exactly what you are apologizing for.

10. Although my lies and deceit have cast a dark cloud on our relationship, your forgiveness can be the silver lining to this moment of darkness. Everything is within your power, my love.

Remind them that the choice to forgive and continue the relationship is their choice. They can either choose to be with you and put aside the past, or they can leave. Hopefully, your boyfriend or spouse will not put aside all that you have built together for one mistake.

11. Over the last few days, I have repented of all my mistakes and apologized for everything. Despite this, you still do not forgive me. What must I do to show you that things can be different? One mistake does not have to define a lifetime.

If your lover still will not message you back and refuses to forgive you, then a more heartfelt message may be needed. You must let him know exactly what he means to you and that you are truly sorry.

12. For a sexy, handsome man like yourself, forgiveness is surely within the realms of possibilities. Be mine again? 😉

For a slightly cute I’m sorry quote, this is the message to use. It will not work for more serious issues, but it is perfectly designed for a minor transgression. Throw in some football tickets or a nice dinner and you should be back on track.

13. Every since the moment that we began dating, we have always done everything with each other in mind. All that I ask is that you think of us once again and forgive me. We cannot continue like this for long.

If things are becoming dire, you need to remind him that forgiveness is a must. When forgiveness is impossible, the relationship also ceases to be a possibility.

14. Never have I understood just how someone as amazing as you could end up with me. Although I do not deserve you, I have never stopped wanting to be with you. Every moment is spent wishing that I was with you and that I could undo the damage I have caused. I know that it is not possible to fix everything, but will you at least let me try?

For extremely difficult situations, quotes like this work best.

15. How is it that your love so kind was blemished by my selfish mind? Please forgive me.

Sometimes, the simplest quotes work the best. A simple “I’m sorry” or “Please forgive me” can initiate the forgiveness process and get him to understand that you truly are sorry. Once he starts to listen, you should follow this up with actions. A dinner date, new shirt or long massage are all ways that you can show him how sorry you are and that you really do love him.

16. Forgive me. If you can find it in your heart to forgive me, we can move on from fighting to getting naughty.

For smaller transgressions, an offer of make-up sex can be extremely effective.

17. Despite the mistake of lying to you, my heart and soul are still yours. I have learned from this dreadful mistake and just want your forgiveness.

Use this quote when you have tried every other way of apologizing already.

18. How could I have harmed the only thing that matters to me? I cannot understand the youthful, na?ve impulses that caused me to betray your trust. Even now, it feels like another person entirely. I know that I do not deserve another chance, but please give me one. I have learned what you mean to me and am willing to fight for your love. Be with me again.

Did you lie or cheat? Both of those transgressions can be difficult to recover from. Starting with an apology is great, but you are going to have to put in a lot more work if you want him to truly forgive you.

19. Although I know that you would never cheat on me, my jealousy got the better of me. I am sorry, my love.

Sometimes, it is impossible to believe that someone as amazing as your boyfriend could stay with you. When that happens, feelings of possession and jealousy can get out of hand. If this is what is occurring in your relationship, you need to start by apologizing.

20. Every apology that I give to you is a written selfie: designed to be brutally honest and straight with you. I am sorry, love.

This quote sounds more personalized than most of the previous ones—just don’t let him find out that it isn’t actually unique!

21. All I want to do is apologize for being so jealous the other day. I know that you are faithful, but I can’t help wishing that I was the one you were talking to instead of her.

Another quote designed for jealousy issues, this message is sure to be a success.

22. Right now, I can apologize and offer my regret. Until you agree to see me again, we cannot even begin to move on from this mistake. Just give me a chance to show you that I can be better than this.

Whatever your mistakes have been, you will need to see him in person before you can truly apologize. Begin by sending a message, but follow-up with an in-person apology. He needs to hear the words “I’m sorry” from your lips.

23. It was hormones. Craziness at work made me do it. An elephant fell from the sky and squished all of my common sense. No matter what happened, I just wanted you to know that I am sorry for acting so crazily the other day.

A cute apology is ideal for a minor transgression or a moment of anger.

24. No matter what happens, you remain my number one. Could you please forgive me for what I have done?

Like number 23, this apology is intended for a minor mishap. For bonus points, it rhymes.

25. All I can say is that I was crazy. I am madly, insanely in love with you and that causes me to do stupid things.

Bring a smile to his face with this message—and get the forgiveness that you were hoping for.

26. Things won’t be normal right away and I know that. Until that happens, though, I will apologize to you every morning when I wake up.

This is a cute, heartfelt message. Keep in mind one thing: if you say that you will message everyday, you better do it.

27. Lately, I have felt a desire to breakup emanating from you. I know that you want to call it quits, but I will not give up until it is completely over.

It is not exactly an apology message, but it does demonstrate exactly where you stand in the situation.

28. Before, I thought just love was hard. Now, I have experienced something worse. Please, please, please forgive me.

Let him know the pain and stress that you have undergone without him near you.

29. From now until forever, I will love you. I will love you when you hate me, ignore me and even when you stop loving me. It would make it easier though, if you would at least forgive me.

A loving and heartfelt message is key.

30. Forgive me for loving you. When pretty girls flirt with you, I get upset. It is not a sign that I do not trust you, it is just a sign that I really care.

Straightening out a miscommunication is important for the continuation of your relationship.

31. Before I met you, I did not know what love is. If you will accept my apology, you will also teach me what true forgiveness is.

If he did not respond to your last message, trying something new may help.

32. Over the last few days, I have cried until I was dehydrated and screamed until my voice was hoarse. Not being with you has broken my heart into pieces. Accept my apology, please.

A humble and modest approach can work wonders. Let him know exactly how this strife has hurt you and how much being apart has pained you.

33. Please, please, please, please, please, please forgive me.

On occasion, simple and cute apologies work the best.

34. Feel my heart and you will feel it beating “I love you and I am sorry” with each beat.

Another cute text message, this I’m sorry quote works well for temporary problems in your relationship.

35. Breaking up with you is the hardest thing that has ever happened to me. From one little mistake, two lives were changed for the worse. Although you were adamant about splitting up, I beg you to reconsider your decision one more time. I love you and I am sorry.

This quote says it all.

36. You used to tell me that I am beautiful, but I am not pretty any longer. All of the tears have swollen my face to an unrecognizable expression. Forgive me so that I can be beautiful again.

Okay, this one is slightly narcissistic, but it still conveys the message.

37. During this entire time, I never meant to be indifferent or aloof. I just wanted to be with you. Forgive me.

For a specific problem, you can always go into the exact situation that you are apologizing for. If you are not sure what he is angry about, a blanket “I’m sorry” will work fine.

38. I could say that this would never happen again, but that would be a lie. Just know that I am sorry.

Use the truth and hope for the best. If you are honest and genuinely sorry, he should forgive you. If he cannot forgive you, then you may need to look for another boyfriend.

39. When I said those words, I was not thinking. Please, please forgive me.

I was not thinking/I was drunk/I was tired are all suitable modifications.

40. I know that it will not be normal right away, but I will keep trying until it is.

Perseverance and an open mind are both key aspects of a strong relationship.

    I had a fight with my boyfriend last night. I was too impulsive and did not consider about his feelings that I scold him directly. I was angry about him for going out with other girl, and that’s the girl who likes him. I always trust my boyfriend that he’s loyal and faithful to me and he ever told me he rejected the girl while she confessed. I am actually angry about he’s not making time for me but he has time for that girl. I was filled with extreme anger that I bombarded him right away. He then gets angry with me for not telling him that I went out with my friend and scolding hom right away without thinking rationally. I asked him why he would go out with that girl but not me. He told me that the girl spend him all the way the places they go, and he said he can’t ask me to go out because he have no enough money to spend me. I understand his family condition that their economy wasn’t good. Now I am really regret for scolding him right away, I wish I can un-speak all the words I spoke but I can’t turn back time. He’s now ignoring me and he’s telling me that he needs to get some rest and he’s tired of me making mistakes repeatedly. Can you tell me what should I do?

      I think that it is understandable that you are angry. He went out with a girl that likes him a lot, and you both know it. He isn’t trying to cheat on you and he doesn’t have feelings for her, but you would think he would at least realize how it would make you feel, right? While it is understandable about the money aspect, it is still rather unfair of him. She pays for him, but that doesn’t mean that he has to go with her. I think that he is being rather unfair. Unless there is something that you forgot to mention, it doesn’t sound like you are the one making a mistake. It sounds like he should be the one who apologizes to you and not the other way around.

        I’ve put down my egos and say sorry to him because I know that I value our relationship more than my ego. While we are arguing, he said he’s disappointed with me for making the same mistake that hurts him. He said he’s angry that I didn’t make things clear with him and boast him right away. And due to this, he’s not replying my message, I feel super hopeless, I’ve apologize for a lot of times but he’s not willing to forgive me. I know he did sacrifice a lot for me too even sometimes it’s my fault but I don’t admit it. He’s the one who gets to put down ego and say sorry. I appreciate him for that, but can you tell me what should I do to make him accept my apology and forgive me? Should I apologize in person? Or it’s that he needs more time and space to think over this problem?

          Honestly, if it were me, I would move on and forget about him. He was the one who was going out with another girl and then blamed you. It’s his ego that is getting in the way, and his inability to take responsibility for his actions. If you do decide to keep dating him, then your best course of action would be to give him space so that he forgives you finally. He just needs a bit to cool down, realize that he loves you and accept your apology. Good luck!

                  Your best option in this case is to have both of your parents speak with each other. Speak with your partner about his feelings regarding the situation. If boyfriend’s parents like your parents, then it is certainly possible that they will approve the relationship. Have a great day, Vanessa!

    had a fight with my boyfriend days ago when he asked me to give him my phone and he saw the conversation i had with a guy friend. and tbh its a bit sweet but there’s nothing going on between me and that guy friend. my boyfriend got really mad and he didn’t let me explain my side of the story he just drove off and up until now he wouldn’t talk to me he wouldn’t even read my messages. i feel so devastated. how can i let him hear me. i can’t even say how sorry i am since he wouldn’t want to talk.

      It sounds like he needs space. If he would not listen to you then, it seems like he is not going to hear your side of things until he has calmed down. He seems to have overreacted a lot and may have some trust issues. Give him another week until you try to reach out to him because it seems like he still needs time to cool off. Once he is ready to listen, you can explain your side of things. If he is never ready to listen, then he is obviously not ready to have a real relationship yet and you may just have to move on. Good luck, Cherry!

    I’ve know my guyfriend for a good 5+ years. Two years ago, we took it to a relationship level. Our life seemed perfect. We share common grounds of loving different food cultures (homecooked or dining out), nature activities, as well as being comfy just being home. 16 months into the relationship, he tells me “I don’t know if I’m ready to be in a relationship”. Dumbfounded…I was heartbroken and feeling lost. The euphoric feeling I thought we shared was shattered. Through that…we remained “friends” and still did the stuff we did as a couple. This passed week, I think I overwhelmed him with texts, of my true feelings, which by the way never went away. He texted back, “I can’t handle this” and I haven’t heard from him since.

    I’m glad I came across this site and enjoyed reading these quotes. I didn’t use any of them BUT they did help me compose a text; telling him I’m sorry (he has shut me out) but not sorry for how I genuinely feel.

    Thank you.

      Thank you for sharing your experiences. It seems as though he has made his feelings clear. He is not interested in a relationship with you at this time. Allow him to respond before you send him another message. If he responds, then you can further develop your relationship. If he does not respond, then allow him to fade from your life. Best of luck, Joan!
