Do you initiate the apology?

If you and your significant other have a fight, regardless if you or they are in the wrong. Do you apologize first or them?

Usually my --husband?-- apologized. I was too hurt at the time and he got over his issues when he sobered up, of course that would be if he remembered them. Since I was sober, the issues lasted longer and the resentment would fester....

Depends.

I feel like lately I initiate it because I feel like nothing will get better unless I do, like most of my friends are pretty stubborn and self-righteous. Also, lately I feel like it genuinely is my fault.

I feel like I've apologized so much these last two years I'm desensitized to it and don't mind owning up to it; whereas in the past I was too prideful to

i do. i'm not okay with her being upset. i try to fix it. when i'm upset she leaves the room because she's upsetting me and thinks it would be better for me if she left...and that makes me nuts. blah.

I am usually the first one to apologize whether it was my fault or not but if it wasn't, I apologize that we had to fight about it. I hate to fight, I don't usually feel there is a need to fight about something.

No. I usually didn't initiate the fight and even if I felt like I was wrong, I never apologized first.

Usually, yes. I like to keep the peace and swallow my pride. I hate to go to bed before a problem is smoothed over.

usually my lover says sorry if he knows he was wrong or if he just wants the arguement to be over.

Generally we approach each other after the fireworks because we don't like to let things fester. With three of us in the mix SOMEONE will prod buttock and get the apologies started!

We have been together for 2 and 1/2 years and have never gone to bed mad at each other. As cheesy as that sounds. But it wasn't even an agreement between each other. We don't like fighting or hurting each other's feelings so when it happens we usually both say we are sorry or not say sorry at all cause we know we are without having to say it.

It usually is him but I've been doing it more lately although to be honest we really haven't fought at all in awhile. I am working on not snapping at him when I'm stressed and trying not to use him as a catch all for anger. It's been helping us a lot.

I tend to apologize if I'm at fault, but I don't pressure her or bring it up if I wasn't at fault
