Hi Rachael,

I think you've got the best idea already: be clear in apologizing, and give him space to accept it in. What you didn isn't the biggest sin in the world, so if your bf keeps up the angry stance for longer than a week, I'd start to think something was up. What you did is understandable and most importantly, forgivable. If he can't get over something this small and normal, there is something not quite right about him and the way he deals with mistakes. I'd talk to him about that if this doesn't let up.

Thanks for letting me provide you with some feedback about your situation.
