How do you say sorry when you have fought with a close friend? Would you phone or sending text messages on mobile, buying choclates, flowers or sending other presents? Any ideaS?

I don't buy anything to say I am sorry. I just try to say it as soon as possible. It seems that the longer you wait to say that you are sorry, the more upset that a person becomes. It may not be that they are waiting on you to say it, but they have more time to think things over.

If it were me I would go to the store and buy a meaningfull card, you know one that says I am sorry. Then I might buy something that my friend really wants or likes. After I have those things all together I would go to my friends house and see if they would invite me in. If so I would give the gifts when entering, after they read the card that should start some kind of conversation and you should be able to sit down and talk things out. Tell them how you feel and how upset you have been since the fight. If they don't answer the door for you I would still leave the gifts and wait for some kind of call or visit from them.

I think to say sorry if we make something wrong to our friend is to meet them and say sorry to them face to face. If we call or sending message. I think it will prove us that as a coward. You know because we didn't have courage to say it directly. But maybe you can give him something like present for your relationship as a friend.

The best way to apologize to someone is in person, especially if its a close friend. Then you can get the straightforward reactions and work through whatever needs to be worked through. Sometimes just saying "Sorry" doesn't make things ok to go on, especially for women. For a women friend, to send gifts is okay, but wait til she accepts your apology and you've worked through the problem that caused the fight or argument. Then the flowers or chocolates are appreciated more as a start over gift. Now if the apology isn't accepted in person or by phone, then hey send a text message or email, wouldn't hurt. Just don't over do it, if you know what I mean. good luck to you.

it will be rude if you sorry but sending text messages. and just call. you have to mean that. se your friend face to face and then tell him/her you sorry ~in the eyes~ point your eyes to her/him thats sown you really mean it.

I usually give her time to cool down. then use words and finally treat her out not to pay for the bad things that happened but to talk about it. Simple as that

Depends if the close friend is a guy or girl. For guys, buying chocolates or flowers would be crazy. I would just say sorry and maybe buy him a cup of coffee. As for girls, presents and flowers should be fine. Sending a card expressing apology may also work wonders.

Necessarily I apologised, although he was my friend, I will meet him and discussed because why fought, and if that was not enough or we were still angry try to talk by hp or send text massage make all clear

You can say sorry by showing its your fault. Be extra nice and buys gifts that he/she really like.

If I'm at fault I just apologize, if not, I don't need to.
