I Let Her Down
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Male
How can i make it up to her when i failed to go to an event she wanted me to go so she would have someone else to have fun with?
It's really tough when you let someone down. Partners depend on each other to be there for them, to be able to rely on them. It really depends on why you didn't go. If you had a real reason (parent was sick, or emergency at work) then it's quite reasonable that you did that instead of just being her entertainment monkey. But on the other hand if you promised to show up and then just stayed home watching TV while she waited around hoping you'd show up, she has a right to be furious!
So you definitely want to show her you DO care and that this was a fluke. If you really did blow her off you need to show her that you learned your lesson and realize how much you hurt her by letting her down. Set aside a block of time for her, give her a present of your time, your energy and your affection. Agree to do whatever it is she wants to do - go for a walk, watch a movie that she chooses, so on. We all make mistakes like this in life occasionally, and hopefully she'll forgive you and move on.
