Me tonight:

Dad: "Son, you need to go talk to your Mom, look her in the eyes and tell her you're sorry."

Son: "But I already told her I was sorry!"

Dad: "With women, sometimes you have to say you're sorry a bunch of times for the same thing before they accept it. Trust me on that, (shrugs) that's just the way it is."

This is good advice. I don't understand the why of it properly either but this is what you have to do with NT females

who are friends and family.

Some people figuratively wear their hurt feelings like a crown, and it doesn't matter if they are NT, female, or whatever. It has to do with anyone, NT or otherwise, who puts more importance on their own hurt feelings than on any attempt at repentance and restitution.
