Stop saying sorry. Say thank you instead. When you say, “sorry for being a jerk” the other person is forced to either call you a jerk or say it wasn’t a big deal. Instead, say “thank you for being so being so patient with me” so the other person has a reason to say they love you.

I saw this gem on Reddit tonight.  It was posted under a topic of “what ‘little’ things you can do to improve your relationship with your significant other.”
