Hi, I'm Donna Barnes. I'm a life and dating coach, the owner of NY Dating Coach, here in New York City. In this clip, we'll talk about ways to say, "I'm sorry." And really, the best way is to come flat out and say, "I'm sorry," and take responsibility for whatever it is that you did because, I think, a big problem in relationships is that people don't do that. They find an excuse for why they did it or they want to blame somebody else for why something happened or they want to blame the partner, which is not effective, and it's going to put the other person on the defense. It's really disarming and very endearing when you can just take responsibility and say, "Wow, I'm sorry. I didn't mean that. I won't do it again," or "You know, I'm sorry if that hurt you." And it's really effective in helping to move a relationship forward. Now, if you have a hard time doing that, then if there was something you did that caused damage, try to rectify that. Try to make amends and go back and make it better. And, you know, with that, it says, "I'm sorry." But I really recommend you actually saying the words. Don't assume that they know that you're sorry. You have to say it. This is Donna Barnes from New York City.
