As a male, if I tried apologizing more... would it be healthy if the apologies were forced and without bona fide meaningful substance? What if I was not feeling particularly apologetic but I had this idea planted in my head that I did not apologize often enough so I made a totally fake effort?
Also -- are the large dose of female apologies that supposedly exist mostly kind of flimsy and not exactly profound in nature? I like to apologize when I have something of gravity to apologize for. If I step on a recently mopped floor and do not have dirt on my shoes and do not leave begrimed tracks I do not see any reason to say anything apologetic... but some might just based on the principle of the affair.
It seems to me we could all benefit from reflecting on whether we apologize too often or too little and when / why we apologize, regardless of gender. For some of us who find we apologize often / too little it might be a habit that is hard to break and in need of some effort (with help) to make a behavioral alteration.
Another thing... I do not like saying the words 'I am sorry.' I do not like hearing the words 'I am sorry.' I guess it is because I have this weird thing going on that when words have two meanings and one of them reflects negatively on the speaker I do not want to say it. Sorry being both 'intending apology' and 'of low quality'. I also do not like saying things like 'I am afraid I did not do such and such.' because afraid has two meanings.
That is a neurosis or quirk or something.
