Why can't men simply say "I'm sorry"?

Are all men afflicted with this deficiency or is it just mine? For some reason, this man behaves like the moment he put a ring on me it was a free-for-all and suddenly I'm a thing and not a person with boundaries. Rarely does he cross a boundary to the extent he did today but damnit I have rights as a human being. So instead of apologizing he turns the situation around like it's all about him being hurt and offended. Wtf???

  • Mine occasinally does that, but most of the time when he is wrong he will apologize, some times even when he wasn't in the wrong.

  • Mine never does that. He used to every once in a while, but he's a pretty good guy. He apologizes when he was wrong.

  • Yeah I know what you mean my ex who is my room mate for now makes everything hard to deal with. Everything he does is hard to deal but even when is the ass in the room he turns it around on me. So now I just say to him whatever makes you feel better.. try it or I look at the clock and say are you still talking.

  • Because that would be admitting he's done something wrong and we all know men NEVER think they've done anything wrong.... We just interpret it the wrong

  • Women are more sensitive to others so we apologize when we are wrong. Men don't expect an "I'm sorry" from other men so it is hard for them to relate to why women expect it. My husband doesn't say he is sorry. But he shows me he is sorry with his actions later. I have learned to appreciate this and let go of hearing the words.
