But, time plays a very important role. Let the feeling sink in to her; give her some time to recover. Don’t bug her with sorry texts. Usually, when people are hurt, they act in a weird way. It happens because they were never expected to get pain or get hurt by the one they loved and who claimed to love them.
Allow her to recover. Give her a call after a few days, according to the temperament of your girlfriend. In the time being, you can analyse the situation, as to what went wrong on that day and how you can avoid it next time when a similar situation pops up.

If you are someone who finds it very difficult to express, then you can express your feeling by writing an apology to her. Girls simply love it when they see their guy making efforts just to make her smile.
You can give the letter a romantic touch. This will increase the chances of her getting forgetting the hurt more quickly. When two people get committed in a relationship, they become a part of each other’s lives. Whenever there are fights or arguments, couples tend to take it very personally.
