Your girl is piping mad and you know it. Even though you can’t calm her down face-to-face, texting can provide a nice way to quiet the storm and put her at ease.
Feel Her Pain
The first thing to do is to let her know that you understand her feelings. This way she knows that you were listening to her and comprehend the situation. You can text something along the lines of “I know you’re mad because I didn’t call when I said I would" or “I can tell that you’re mad because of what I said.”
Secondly, try to put yourself in her shoes. Show her that you would probably feel the same way if you were in her position. You can text something as simple as “I would be mad too.”
Lastly, take responsibility for your actions if your behavior is the reason why she is upset. Text something such as “I will try to stick to my word next time.” Alternatively, you might write “I’ll try to think more before I say something like that again.”
