I just made a horrible mistake. I treated my girlfriend like a jerk and made her look like a bad person in front of other people. Plus I talked about her behind her back. I'm really sorry about it and I really Love her. Please guys! help me! and not just guys! you too girls!!

A guy is not worth crying over, and the one who is wont make you! I dont know if you can apologise for something like that. If you really cared abought her why would you do such a thing in the first place? Maybe you need to step back and figure out why you did it befoer you try to convince her you wont do it again.If you just apologise and dont know why you would do such a thing how is she to know that it wont happen again? My husband always has my back, even if he doesnt agree with me he will wait till we are alone to say anything. we have been married for 11 years and have a fantastic marriage because we put each other and our kids first. If you love someone there well being should be first and last in you thoughts.

I am not going to say that what you did was unforgivable, but I would advise any girl who is treated like that to find someone else who knows how to treat her the way she deserves to be treated. Just the fact that you felt like degrading her in front of people and then talking about her later makes me wonder if what you truly feel for her is love. Love does not act like that. As far as helping you say you are sorry, my husband always says he is sorry and he thinks it makes everything ok and soon he is back doing what he was so sorry about before. For that reason we are not together today. I hate to see anyone's relationship destroyed and if you are able to repair this and if you are truly sorry I would hope you would not do anything like that to her again.

My boyfriend didn't do anything very stupid especially in hurting me. He is afraid to hurt me because he loves me so much. Even though we have some misunderstanding or when we quarrel he didn't really do something stupid just to make me feel bad or get hurt. Instead he try his best to solve our problems and able to get me back in his own doing without asking help from other people. In you case, I don't know what's your motive on why have you done that kind of thing but no matter what your reason is I don't think so that you had made the right choice. Well, based of what you're saying now you had regret the things that you had done to you girl. Anyway, if you wan to get her back and forgive you, you must do everything that makes her accept your apology like sending him flowers/letters everyday. Go to their house and for her forgiveness. She must convince that you are sincere in asking for an apology so that she can easily forgive you.
