Apology Letter to My Ex-Girlfriend

by Nate
(New York, NY)

Peyton... I don’t know what to say other than that I am so sorry, I truly am sorry. I cannot stop thinking about all of the pain that I have caused you throughout our many years together, especially the last few months of our relationship. I was awful to you and I am so sorry that I didn’t see that. You deserve the world and I gave you nothing.

I treated you like sh*t and you didn’t deserve that. I took out all of my anger and hate on you and I will hate myself forever for the way I treated you. I am sorry that it took me so long to realize that. I hurt you so badly and I didn’t even see it.

Andrew and Julia told me how badly you were hurting and I didn't show you that I cared. I am sorry for all of the nights that you looked at the clock at 3 am and realized that you hadn’t had any sleep even though you needed to get up to get ready for ballet in two hours, all because you were crying from the pain because I made you feel like you weren’t good enough.

I am the one who isn’t good enough, you are perfect Peyton. Please, never let anyone ever make you feel that way ever again because you are more than enough. I'm sorry for the depression and all of the pain that I caused you. I'm sorry for every time my pride got in the way, for all the things I wouldn't do for you, for all the words I said, and especially all the words I would never say, because I had my own issues trying to be a man.

I am so sorry for how I left you hanging. I ruined your trust, and now for every guy that comes along, you will be reluctant to let down your walls that you try so hard to build up so no one can get inside, you will hold onto your heart, because I broke it into a million pieces and it is just starting to be repaired.

I am sorry for every time your friends had to pick you up and take you out to cheer you up because I hurt you. I'm sorry that you got injured and almost had to end your ballet career and that I wasn't there to pick you up and hold you and tell you everything would be okay.

I'm sorry that I wasn't there to hold your hand and rub your back as you cried yourself to sleep over the fear of never dancing again. I know that me being there wouldn't completely take away that fear and pain, but I should have been there to ease the pain and to comfort you. That was one of the hardest times in your life and I wasn't there for you and for that I am so sorry.

I am sorry for the decisions you made and all of the alcohol and drugs you used to try to erase the memory of me and everything I did to hurt you. I am sorry for the heartache didn't stop hurting. I'm sorry for every time you hugged your mom as she cursed my name under her breath, because her little girl wasn't the same anymore.

I'm sorry for every shoulder you cried on, and I'm sorry mine was never one of them. I'm sorry I didn't give you the love and respect you deserved, and made it where the words "I love you" leave a bitter taste in your mouth.

I am sorry that you can't listen to the song Thunder or Uptown Girl without crying or thinking of me. I'm sorry that you can't go into Bobby Vans without remembering our first real date or go to a polo match without tearing up. I'm sorry for everything I've put you through.

I am so terribly sorry for everything, but most of all, I am sorry for letting you go. You were the light of my life, my best friend, my world, my everything and I let you go.

I pushed you away to the point that you had to leave and I am so sorry for not fighting for you, not fighting for us. I am so stupid for letting you go and I will regret that every day for the rest of my life. You were the best thing that ever happened to me and I hope that one day you will be able to forgive me for turning your world upside down. I'm sorry.

I love you.
Forever and always.

I am sorry Belinda
by: Marc

Dear Belinda R., I know that I wasn't the best or perfect mate or boyfriend and I am sorry for all of the screw ups I did that made you so mad at me and caused you to hate me as you do.

But I promise you got your revenge in spades.

There is nothing worse that could ever be done to hurt and destroy me. My love for you is still undying, strong and alive.

When I am dead and gone and forgotten as a mere fool of a man, my love for you will still exist. My dear Grandmother on her deathbed warned me that my future held pain, suffering and heartaches in store for me.

I am just sorry that I somehow made you hate me so much. I will always love you,

Love John Marcus G.

First of all thank you so much, you gave me precious year of my life.

7 August 2017 was the luckiest day of my life. Sorry for all wrong that I did to you. Sorry for all the pain I caused you. I'm especially sorry for the last few months of our relationship. If possible just forgive me and have great journey ahead.

Apology letter to my ex
by: Anonymous

I broke up with my girl friend 3 months ago... I embarked on a 60 day NC period then I met her at church after the NC.

She initiated contact saying she missed me a lot...

I gave her a letter I had written a day before to apologize to her but it was filled with a lot of emotions. She then backed off as she was seeing this other guy. Rebound perhaps? Now I was thinking of writing her a note just to let her know that I was still under emotional construction and now I'm good and also to arrange a meet up in a friendly manner.

Is this a good idea or not? What should I do?

To Steffany CH
by: Peter N.

I hope one day you will read this letter because I might not ever have the chance to see you again or apologize to you in person.

Although our relationship only lasted a year, you are the only one who has ever left a deep scar on my heart.

I now know I acted like a child during our entire relationship. I also held you back from doing what you wanted to do.

I've felt so lonely, sitting alone looking at the same sky every night... waiting for a response from you, some caring, your smile.

It's been 10 years now. I know you may still hate me because of my selfish behavior and protectiveness. For me, you always come to mind lovingly, because the best time of my life was with you.

I want to sincerely apologize for ever making you cry, feel afraid or confused, and not feeling free to be who you are.

I wish, more than anything, that I could have the chance to say I'm sorry to you in person and somehow make up for all my mistakes.

Perhaps then, you could forgive me.

I was in a relationship with the girl I fell in love with when I was 18 and she was on holiday. Years passed and we connected on Facebook.

She was American and I in Europe. We fell madly in love and the years between just fell away as if we never parted.

She came to visit many times over our 6 years together. I made her fall for me again but I took it for granted. I remember how she put everything into us and planned a future.

They were the best years of my life but I let my ideal image of her cloud my mind and let jealousy and frustration ruin our love. I was/am an idiot who pushed my chance of happiness away on petty jealous emotions until you rightly finished by text.

I will never get to see forgiveness on her beautiful face and will never see her again.

I will always be alone with my thoughts now, knowing I hurt the best person in my life. Now I know I deserve to feel like crap and I hope she finds the happiness she should have.

I'm a jealous fool who can never forgive myself for pushing her away. I was too weak to fight the distance and let my insecurities destroy my chance of happiness.

I will forever see you go through the airport gates and out of my life.

I'm so sorry Kel, you're beautiful and I hope you're happy and one day can accept my apology.

I'm an idiot,


True Life

I can't believe how this letter had opened my eyes to the destruction I had caused into my own relationship by relating so much to my part in my last relationship that I truly overlooked or in better words never owned up to.

Nate, you opened my eyes and I sincerely wanted to thank you for you words because it led me to reach back out to her and completely being honest for my part in how I ruined a 5 year relationship and it was so healing to only speak on my part instead of blaming her like I used to normally focus on.

It gave both of us more appreciation towards one another and more respect in moving forward and we are talking once again so thank you.

Often times I'm left being selfish and only thinking of how I had been hurt, but you helped me to realize that I had been creating hurt in her just as much and that isn't fair to her because like your letter said, she was perfect. It was really me, so thank you.


Feeling sorry
by: Ntokoto Nkuna

It makes me feel sorry for what I did to my ex

Wish I had seen your letter earlier!!
by: Ash

Thanks Nate for writing this letter and showing that you still have a nice human being hidden inside you somewhere! I also did somewhat like that, but definitely not of that intensity to my darling wife Su!

I was very insensitive to her and her needs that’s why I lost her, she left me!! I feel your pain very well. I apologized to her several times right after she left me and begged her to come back but she became stern.

I cry almost every night. We have two gorgeous kids, now adults. I miss my Ex and them every single day of my life!! She has now another man in her life, not remarried yet though!

I'm still waiting for her, it's been four years in anticipation that she will change her heart one day. Hope she happens to read my note here one day and forgive me!! I'll pray for you. God Bless you and Payton!!


Nate I feel you
by: Anne

It hurts, this letter of Nate... I feel the same thing and this writer is the one who wrote what I was waiting for my ex to say in an apology letter....and what hurts the most is that I'm still waiting for him.
