Answered by on -

A.

Apologize. The bigger the “arse” you made of yourself, the bigger the apology required. Then take a careful look at what happened. Has your drinking gotten out of control? Do you and your girlfriend have a different idea about how to have a good time? Is it possible that she felt you weren’t considerate or respectful of her? You and your girlfriend need to talk it through. Apologies don’t mean much unless followed up by new understanding and a change in behavior.

I wish you well.
