    What do you do when you accidentally step on your loved one’s foot, or mistakenly elbow your loved one in the dark?

    Thank you ☺

    The same thing I would say to a stranger……say “I am sorry I didn’t see you” or “I apologize” or excuse me or pardon me. Why would you even think it should be different because it is someone you love?

    You say “I’m sorry.”

    What about if it’s a child?

    Or a dog? When I accidentally elbowed my dog in the face earlier this evening, I found him in the dark with my cell phone light, walked up to him, grabbed his face in between my hands, and gave him kisses where I think I elbowed him, all the while saying, “I’m sorry I’m sorry.”

    If someone just looked at the moment in isolation, without seeing that it was unintentional on my part, I must have looked like a creepy abuser for a moment… but maybe my mom dd the same when I was young, and that was okay and appreciated… so I started this thread to see how others respond.

    … it may be different for someone you love and/or is family because you wouldn’t necessarily be giving a stranger’s kid (or dog) a kiss in the same spot (if you do so at all), in such a case.

    … anyway, just wondering what the options are here to express an apology and concern for the person hurt in thus scenario…

    Elbow them again, and act like you’re playing with them. If done right, the effects are magical.
