Oh no, you did the worst thing you could possibly do in a relationship – you cheated. When someone cheats, it’s the ultimate betrayal of trust. And what’s more important in a relationship than trust? When you lose your trust in someone, it’s hard to get it back. And that’s why you should know exactly what to say to show your partner that you want to make it up to them.
Ideally, the best way to apologize to someone you’ve cheated on is to meet them face to face. However, it’s understandable when you partner doesn’t want to see you or even talk to you. You might be blocked from all their online accounts, and they might outright refuse to meet you even if you’re waiting right at their front door. The next best thing to do would be to create a letter of apology to at least show them that you’re sorry.
The most important thing in a letter of apology to someone you cheated on is actually saying sorry. Tell your partner that you’re sorry for what you did. Next, you need to be willing to make amends. This will make them understand that despite your betrayal, you’re more than willing to move heaven and earth just to be with them again. And lastly, you must show your remorse. Admit that what you did was wrong and selfish, and that you want to make them realize that moving forward, you can have a better relationship.
If you’re having trouble writing out an apology letter that you think is convincing, these short letters below may be able to help you. Remember, don’t just copy these and sent them out to your partner. Make sure you keep it personalized to make them see that you really mean what you say.
We’re all sorry when it’s too late. We’re all so f**king sorry. But sorry doesn’t fix anything because words have already been said and things have already been done, and sorry is just another lame excuse for ourselves to feel better. Yet here it is anyway. I’m sorry for what I did. I’m sorry I was too stupid to realize that my actions would lead to consequences. I’m sorry that I chose to betray your trust for some momentary excitement Though you may never forgive me for breaking your heart like this, I just wanted to let you know how sorry I am that I did what I did.
I am sitting here writing out an apology for what I did. It’s embarrassing to have to admit, but I need to get this off my chest. For the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed how distant I’ve become. I barely have time for you, and what time we do spend together veers off into an activity where we don’t need to talk much. The truth is that I’ve been doing something I shouldn’t have been doing. I’ve been seeing someone else behind your back. I offer no excuses for my behavior because you’ve been such a wonderful partner to me. But for the sake of my sanity, my conscience, and our relationship, I decided to come clean. I wanted you to find out from me, and not from anyone else. I’m so sorry for what I did, and I’m willing to bear the consequences of my actions. I know the trust between us can never go back to the way it was, but I’m at least hopeful that we could have a second chance. I’m sorry for betraying you.
I know you won’t believe me, but I want to tell you anyway. No matter what I did and who I did it with, the love in my heart is still all for you. Even if I cheated, I want you to know that no one could ever hold my heart the way you do. I may have given someone else my time, my energy, and my affection, but not love. I know that it’s hard to believe that someone who loves you could do that to you, but I have made a terrible mistake. I will regret what I did for the rest of my life. I’ll bear the burden of earning just a bit of your trust once again. I love you, and I’m sorry for what I did. I love you, and no matter what I did, there’s nothing in the world that can change that.
I wish there was some way to turn back the hand of time to the moment when I had to choose between remaining faithful and betraying your trust. I could wish forever that I never did what I did, but I know it’s impossible. I’m in absolute anguish about what I did, but I know that my pain is nowhere near the pain you’re going through now. I’m sorry, my love, for doing this to you and to us. I was impulsive and stupid. I was selfish and inconsiderate of you. I just wanted a thrill that I know I would be paying for for the rest of my life, but what’s worse is that I dragged you into this. I’m so sorry for doing this to you. Please let me make it up to you. Things may no longer be the same between us, but I’ll do what I can to be a better partner for you. Just give me that chance to make it up to you, please.
You are the perfect partner. You are everything I need in a person and more. You are more than I could have hoped for, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Despite what I’ve done, my heart still yearns only for you. I have been so blind not to realize that I already have the best life could give me. I chose to go towards a path I could never take back, and in turn, I hurt you. I’m so sorry for the pain I have caused you. I’m so sorry for ruining this wonderful thing we have. I’m so sorry for what I did, and I could only hope for your forgiveness.
I cheated on you, and that alone is already unforgivable. But for the sake of the relationship we’ve built over the years, I hope we can find a way to get through this together. You are the love of my life, the most important person in my world. You give me the strength I need, and our relationship means everything to me. I know I’m far from being the perfect partner, but I want to work towards becoming that for you. I want to be able to learn from this mistake with you, and together we can become stronger. I am so sorry for what I did, and I wish I could take it all back, but I can’t. The best we can do is to strengthen our relationship by rebuilding trust and improving our communication. Again, I’m so sorry.
Nothing I can say will reverse the pain I put you through, and I am really sorry. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me for this betrayal. I want you to know that despite what I’ve done, I’ve never stopped loving you. You mean the world to me, and I know I was being selfish and inconsiderate when I did what I did. No one in this world can replace you, and I want you to remember that. It may take you a long time to learn to trust me again, but I will do whatever I can to prove that you can trust me from now on. I am so sorry for what I did, and I wish I could take it all back, but I can’t. Please forgive me.
You are the most wonderful person in my life. You know me so well that I don’t think I can ever find someone so perfect. And despite this, I cheated on you. I’m a horrible, terrible person who doesn’t deserve you. And yet, I hope you can forgive me for this. Perhaps you won’t forgive me now, but I am willing to do whatever it takes to let you see that I can be better. I can make better decisions. I will put you first, and I will never do anything to break your trust in me again. I will work hard to show you how I am willing to make it up to you. So please forgive me. I am so sorry for putting you through this because of my selfishness. I am so sorry.
At the end of the day, your partner isn’t obligated to forgive you. But that doesn’t make an apology futile. Instead, it shows them that you are willing to step on your pride and apologize. That may or may not be enough to convince them to take you back, but it does show them that you value your relationship. So we wish you good luck with your apology, and we hope you don’t need to write another one ever again!
