Now if you are the one at fault, how will you make it up to him? This may cause some strain on your mind, but remember one thing: even though he is mad at you, he still loves you and cares about you. Now it’s your job to make things right and make him smile, how will you do that? We have listed some ways to make him stop being mad at you.
There are plenty of things you can say or do when your boyfriend is mad at you. You can start a conversation, make a sincere apology to him, you should give him space to let off some steam, you can give him sweet compliments, let him express his emotions, you can crack some jokes, cook him a meal or even give him a surprise. Always remember to take care of yourself too. If you’re mentally sound, it’s only then that you can make it up to your boyfriend.
Break the Ice:
Not talking to someone you love can be a weird experience. Life seems dull and you’re just not interested in anything. It’s only natural that your boyfriend will not want to talk to you when he’s mad at you.
The first thing that you can do is break the ice instead of making it an ego issue. It really doesn’t matter who was at fault, you being the bigger person here will only make your boyfriend care about you even more. It’s always the first step that’s toughest and it only gets easier from there.
You can only make the best out of any situation by your actions or your words only if you actually are having a conversation. Once you two are on the talking basis again, it’s a cakewalk from there!
Apologize as you mean it:
You need to think back as to why he could be mad at you. Nobody is perfect, we all make mistakes and you really shouldn’t be embarrassed of accepting your mistake and making an apology.
You should rush into making an apology, no one wants an apology out of guilt, you need to take time and think back on what you could have done wrong and how are you willing to make amends. A sincere apology can resolve conflicts and bring back things to normal in a jiffy.
It’s okay to apologize, it’s okay to be the one at fault as long as you realize that. It’s rather important to sort things out and fathom where you went wrong, it may not always be your fault, he could be mad at something you don’t even realize.
With a well-put apology, you can kill two birds with one stone, you can make things as well as make your boyfriend understand that you value your relationship with him more than your pride.
There is a litany of ways to apologize to your boyfriend, for example:
- No one else makes me feel as happy as you do. I’m sorry for giving you a reason to be angry at me. I want to fix this.
- I really am sorry for making you mad, it really wasn’t my intention to do so. Can we please make it right?
Give him space:
Let’s be fair for a while here, there’s nothing more tedious than arguing with someone who isn’t in touch with their inner feelings. When your boyfriend is mad at you, you should be open and respectful about his boundaries and should ask your boyfriend to do the same.
You have to establish that he can open up in front of you and you’re not going to judge him. For starters, you can say something like, “it’s okay, you can tell me, it’s just me.
The best way you have your boyfriend open up to you is by giving him time, it’s a known fact that guys don’t like sharing much of what is going on inside that head of theirs, give him time, let him be for a while, maybe he just wants some alone time.
Maybe he just needs some time to cool off, give him the space he wants, you don’t want to say things that you end up regretting,
Guys usually like to pretend that they don’t like to be complimented but the real deal is, they love it, come on! Who wouldn’t?
Like girls, guys yearn to be complimented, but due to social stigma, they hardly get any. That’s where you come in. When he’s mad at you, you can always woo him with sweet compliments.
Now complimenting a guy is really easy and simple, you can praise anything ranging from his eyes to the shirt he is wearing. Trust us when we say, he’ll be remembering your compliment for months to come. Be extra sweet towards him but try not to be cringe so he’s left with no choice but to smile and forget his anger.
Take the first step:
Things can get pretty awkward when there is trouble in paradise. Your boyfriend, being mad, might not talk to you at all, so you have to realize that it’s not an opportunity for you to get mad. Life’s not a competition you can always take the first step.
If your boyfriend is mad at you, you can always start the conversation and take the first step in making things right. It’s not about ego or pride, it shows how much you care about him. You can also tell him what he means to you and to what lengths you are willing to go for him.
Let it all out:
The reason why your boyfriend might be mad at you is not necessarily something you did just today, he’s human, he’s bound to have certain feelings. He might be having a bad day, he might be stressed about something.
Put yourself in his place, how many times have you woke up feeling blue. You can ask your boyfriend to let it all out, you can let him know that you’re there for him if he wants to rant, you shall not be judging him.
You can make it comfortable for your boyfriend to vent out as letting off steam is always a great way to make things right. People usually don’t lie in a heated argument, it’s the moment of honesty and you can make up with your boyfriend for whatever you did wrong.
When your boyfriend is mad at you, the last thing he wants to come home to is some boring life where you two are not talking to each other. Here, your best bet is to make him laugh. It’s proven that couples that laugh together are much happier in their relationships. So, don’t hesitate to make your boyfriend laugh even when he’s mad at you.
Guys normally laugh very easily without putting much effort into it and what’s a better way to make a guy laugh than to crack some puns, take a witty approach, be open, funny, and respectful. But be careful not to slip any taunt or a remark that he’s sensitive about which would lead to the opposite results. You can say things like:
- Do you know humans can’t smile while raising their eyebrows? And when he tries that, pull out your ace and say, I just wanted to make you smile.
- You’re such a cute person, too cute to be mad at anyone, especially your girlfriend, can we make up already?
If this doesn’t work, you can always crack some jokes to make your boyfriend laugh. Women are not the only ones to fall in love with men’s sense of humor, men would love to see the lighter side of women, no matter how clichéd your jokes are, your boyfriend will still end up laughing.
Cook him a meal:
It’s a known fact that men love to eat and there’s nothing better than a home-cooked meal made by someone you love. Remember even though he’s mad at you, he still loves you and is deep down looking for a way to talk to you, but he’s just staying mad because he’s perplexed.
You can make it simple for him by preparing him a home-cooked meal. It really doesn’t matter what you make him, a home-cooked meal can range from a simple pizza to a gourmet dinner. But we suggest you put a little effort into it since you want to leave him in awe.
Put yourself in his shoes for instance, wouldn’t you love a home cooked meal made by your paramour after a long day of being mad? Of course, you would and so would he. So, don’t hold anything back, you’re an artist and the kitchen is your canvas.
Who doesn’t love surprises? No one, right? So does your boyfriend, you can always plan a surprise for him especially when he’s mad. It doesn’t take much but it will have tremendous effects on your boyfriend’s mood.
Now planning a surprise doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to go out on a limb, spend thousands of dollars, a heartfelt surprise does the same job as an expensive gift. It’s the effort that counts. There are many things you can do:
- Take him out to his favorite spot.
- Buy him his favorite comic book.
- You can give him a surprise massage.
- You can leave small notes telling him how much you love him.
- Rent his favorite movie.
- You can arrange a guys’ night for him. This may come off a bit weird but he will most definitely love the fact that even though he is mad at you, you still want him to have a great time.
