Insist that he explain exactly how he feels about your actions, only if all of your partner's feelings and concerns are addressed will your partner be able to trust you again.
Otherwise, resentment and anger will continue to linger and damage your relationship.
You may want to set deadlines for when you should meet your promise.
Create a plan you can act on within a timely manner, but also give you and your partner some flexibility within the arrangement to allow for extenuating circumstances. Breaking your partner's trust again could possibly mean he or she will never trust you again.
Keep in mind that your action plan is not set in stone; you and your partner can tweak your agreement over time so that he is able to rebuild his trust in you in the healthiest way possible.
All relationships are built on trust between two people.
If this trust is betrayed, steps must be taken to regain a healthy, trusting bond.
Knowing that you have hurt your partner and want to rebuild your relationship, you must reach out to the other person and offer a solution to the problem.
Whether you have been lying about your extravagant shopping habit or have reconnected with an interested ex, you must take steps to rebuild your partner's trust. Express to your partner that you know that what you did was wrong and that you are sorry for hurting his or her feelings.
Do not blurt out an apology in the heat of the moment, instead pick a time when you are both calm and willing to listen to each other.
Otherwise, the apology is like putting a bandage on a wound without treating it.
