If you’re a guy and you are in a relationship, chances are you’re going to find yourself in the doghouse… If you haven’t already, it is just a matter of time. There are three things you can do to get yourself back into the good graces of your significant other.
The first thing is to apologize sincerely. If you approach her with your heart-in-hand so to speak, she will sense your sincerity. Honesty and sincerity are the cornerstones of any good, lasting relationship. A sincere apology will go a long way in getting you out of the doghouse.
Next, never overlook the importance of flowers. Women love flowers and while your wife or girlfriend may be angry with you and simply drop the flowers, or even throw them at you if she’s that angry, there is an almost unwritten rule that when a man makes a mistake he must bring flowers. You don’t have to run out and buy an expensive bouquet, a few daisies from your garden can do the trick. Just make sure to buy the kind of flowers she likes. If you don’t know what she likes, roses will always do in a pinch.
But one of the best ways I’ve ever found to get myself back in my significant other’s good graces is to show up with a box of chocolates. And not just any chocolates… gourmet chocolates always seem to do the trick. I don’t know if it is the mind-altering effects of chocolate, or just that they taste so good, but my wife will forgive me almost anything if I show up with gourmet chocolates.
Obviously, the best thing to do is to avoid getting thrown into the doghouse in the first place. But “to err is human” and if you find yourself in the wrong, gourmet chocolates can help to express your desire to make amends.
