    After an argument with your spouse,  which is the best way to make up? (other than the bedroom)

    Good tips are always appreciated, because even if we don't mean to, sometimes we get too emotinal and screw up and say what we didn't want to say. :-(

    1- apologize for words said that went beyond message you wanted to say
    2- learn to accept the other as they are, and also not beat yourself up for not being perfect as well
    3- therefore love yourself tenderly as much as your spouse and accept human weakness's
    4- go for a walk together to a favorite spot for both of you (drive works too)
    5- do something together that they enjoy more than you do and enjoy THEM while you are doing it
    6- movie or dinner outing (movie could be at home but make your own popcorn and serve it with a glass of soda)
    7- invite another couple over and swap partners and watch

    LOL number 7 only if you are swingers already LOL

    if none of these things work - get a new spouse!

    Love - Light - Laughter ............... and Lust!

    Gifts are nice, especially one of the big 3: Chocolate; because it says "your @$$ is not too big," Flowers; "these remind me of you because you're beautiful," Jewelry; "Because you're absolutely worth it!"

    Say you are sorry and agree to put it in the past ~ nothing is worse than someone not really putting it in the past.

    Spend time together, time together can heal a lot.

    If you need to, give each other space to completely cool off and let the emotions die down and get back within a reasonable range. Apologize for letting it get out of control, then request a sit-down discussion where both sides can be presented and discussed. Come to a point of mutual understanding, or agree to disagree. I explain this a little bit in my "pros and cons of arguing" near the end of this hub: … or-Arguing

    And it sounds like this one may also be helpful in your situation (most of the concepts can be applied to significant others of either gender): … ur-Husband

    I find crawling over and hugging his legs gets my sorry across quite well...

    With me my man has to work a little harder, generally crying works well for something not too bad, but if he's been really naughty he kisses my feet...

    Yes, we are wierd, but we have fun lol!

    Best way is  to keep quiet and start watching a movie or TV serial.  Silence is always golden.

    Say, "I'm sorry!" Not just... "Sorry!" In other words, say it like you mean it with full eye contact, touching, and all of the things you do to show closeness to someone. There is no need to rehash the whole argument, because you were both there when it happened. Plus, if you really are sorry it's all behind you anyway.
