Today’s brief post contains a brief message to men:
Stop apologizing so often.
Apologies should be given out sparingly. At the same time, they should be given out with full earnestness. A man should mean it when he apologizes for a wrong.
Saying you are sorry constantly takes a lot of the oomph from your apologies. They end up meaning little. And if it is really necessary, then it means you might not have really made up for whatever you did.
Also, and I don’t normally use this word… but saying “sorry” a ton comes off as incredibly Beta. It is extremely unattractive. Something to keep in mind.
[Note: there is an exception to the above- a carefully pulled off stream of melodramatic apologies can make for good teasing.]
So, in summary, watch it with apologies- seldom and meaningful should be the order of the day.
