Why is it so hard

For guys to apologize? Seriously.

The rule is that a guy only has to apologize if the woman is withholding sex.

I'm sorry that you are finding that the men in your life are incapable of apologizing.

It's just further evidence supporting my theory that 65r isn't really a guy.

+1

As men, we are all sorry you feel this way. It is unfortunate that your feelings have been hurt.

Guy to guy apology. Dude 1 "Sorry man". Dude 2 "Thanks dude". both dudes "Later".

Guy to gal apology. Guy "Sorry honey/wife/ma'am". Gal "What? That's it? After I'll I've done for you that's all I get? You've never loved me. You've lazy bast@#D. My mother was right. I should have married my high school sweetheart" Guy. "OK, I'll remember to put the toilet seat down next time".

Apologies can be two way streets both giving and receiving. After too many of the above examples, guys will just shut down. And yes gals, you do that more than you think.

I could post photographic evidence but then I would have to apologize to the women that fainted and to the people who were blinded.

We do. We normally just don't know which personality to apologize to.

Why do women only give 1/2 the facts in a story?
Tell us what the dude attempted and we'll reply with how sincere an apology you merit in this particular caper.

Mine doesn't do anything that warrants an apology.
