How To Apologize To A Pisces Man When Hurt

by Anna Kovach Astrologer, relationship astrologer
Did you say or do something that made your Pisces take a pause in reflection? Well, read on how to make things right when a Pisces man is hurt.

Is your tender hearted Pisces man really hurt by something, and you want to make him feel better? Did you perhaps say or do something that made him take a pause for reflection? Whatever happened, you may want to know how to apologize to a Pisces man.

Something else you need to understand is that when a Pisces man is hurt, he tends to never be consistent. His mind and feelings are always flowing, but may flow in different directions.

While he deals with his day, he may develop a bad mood, depressed mood, or he may have a great day. You never really know what you’re going to get when you’re spending time with him.

Remember that he’s empathic, and if he picks up on anyone else’s energy that causes him to feel down, angry, or anything else… it may impact how he is with you or around you.

Keep reading, and I will show you how to comfort a Pisces man when he is hurt. 

When A Pisces Man Is Hurt — How Do They Act When Hurt?

Pisces man is greatly influenced by his emotions. He is a dreamer and senses things on a deep emotional level. He is very intuitive and empathic. When a Pisces man isn’t feeling good about himself, he takes a nosedive. Until he figures himself out, he’s no good to anyone relationship wise. 

A Pisces man acts cold and simply crawls back to his crab shell. Pisces men are easily hurt and so it’s not uncommon for him to get hurt by something you really didn’t mean in the way he took it. 

Whether or not you’re involved in his feeling hurt, he’s going to need some solitude in order to work things through in his mind. While he may be willing to talk to you about it, let him do it in his own time. You cannot force him.

The wounded Pisces man will not typically open up to just anyone. He wants to feel safe and trusted with the person to whom he decides to confide his woes. If you’re his partner, then this would be you.

Pisces men have one of the most specific love languages of all Zodiac signs. I covered his entire Astrology love profile in my Pisces Love Language guide.

I suggest you get your copy if you really want to master his Love language and finally connect with him in the right way.

Do Pisces Move On Quickly After Being Hurt?

Well, a Pisces man cannot move on quickly because he is trying to avoid failure. He never wants to appear as a bad guy, and sometimes it’s easier to just be really distant.

I know it sounds kind of twisted, but this is how totally emotionally tied a Pisces man is. Avoiding hurting anyone is his goal. He won’t want to hurt whoever is involved. It’s guilt for selfish reasons. This is why he takes time to move on. He cannot easily let go.

There’s A Right Way To Apologize To A Pisces Man — Here’s  How

If you hurt your Pisces man with something you said or did, you’ll need to sincerely apologize to him. While it may take him time to process what happened along with your apology, he will get the message.

You are probably wondering how to say sorry to a Pisces Man? 

Pisces men are not made of glass even if they sometimes seem like they are. The best thing you can do when you’ve “messed up” in his mind is apologize and tell him you didn’t mean it or what you actually meant by it.

Once you explain and apologize, he’ll probably want a little space and time so he can sulk a little, think it over, and decide if he can forgive it and move on or if this one flaw has made him want to call it quits.

I wish I could give you a guarantee, but Pisces men can be rather unpredictable when it comes to their feelings. You never really know what they will be hurt or offended by.

However, when you love a Pisces man, you tend to care if his feelings are hurt, so you’re willing to do what you can to cheer him up. That being said, apologizing and explaining should help.

How Does A Pisces Man Apologize?

A Pisces man apologizes by expressing empathy, remorse, and a sincere desire to make things right. He may also use creative or romantic gestures to show his apology and make it up to the person they hurt.

He will do everything he can to show you how much he loves you.

Words are good, but taking action to prove to you how he feels will allow you to actually FEEL it. He will take care of you, be affectionate, and do whatever he can to show you that he cares. 

How To Get A Pisces Man To Forgive You?

You can try doing things for him that will make him feel cared for and will let him see how wonderful you truly are. Send him a card with a sentimental feel to it but not too emotional though.

It can be something about how much you value and enjoy having him in your life, etc. You can also make a card yourself if you’re artistically inclined. You can also try writing him a song or anything that appeals to his artistic side.

Communication is very important, as is staying calm. You cannot go at him with anger or frustration, or he will shut down and not listen. Even worse, he might say some hurtful things then block and you out of his life.

You have to do this diplomatically and carefully. Pisces is sensitive, so you’ve got to appeal to that by being calm, collected, and intellectual. He’s more apt to listen to you when you’re not emotionally unsettled. 

Do Pisces Men Forgive Easily?

Depending on the severity of what happened, generally speaking, Pisces men tend not to hold grudges and easily forgive.

The first thing you really need to do is figure out how ticked off he really is. To do this, you will be able to tell from his actions. If a Pisces man ignores you or will not speak to you at all, that means he is pretty upset.

If he talks to you but sounds a bit standoffish, he’s mad but not something he cannot overcome. So which one of these is he displaying? Pisces is quite open about how they feel most of the time.

 In fact, your consideration alone will make him understand that you care about him and that will make him start to feel better without doing too much else. Being cared for is a huge thing for the Pisces man.

He may not tell you, but he will secretly want you to work as hard as you can to be a better person and a better partner. He will want you to change the actions that led you to do whatever it is that you did.

How To Comfort A Pisces Man — 5 Ways To Cheer Him Up

Take him out for a few laughs. If you know his sense of humor, you should easily be able to find something that will appeal to him and pick him up. Comedy is fantastic medicine for just about anyone who isn’t feeling quite right.

Perhaps you can try taking him to a comedy club or something similar. If there is a comedian in town, grab some tickets! He’ll be so grateful that you’re so considerate and thinking of him.

Make a reservation at his favorite restaurant. Taking him to his favorite restaurant or ordering some in will help him feel better. Surprise him with something fun and/or tasty. The act of you showing your care for him will lift his spirits.

Inviting him to hang out with friends.  This may help raise his mood as well. Something involving water would be ideal, such as going out on a boat, surfing, camping by a lake, or anything else that allows his soul to absorb the water’s energy.

Be affectionate with him. He may not take well to trying to bed him down but he will take the hugs, kisses and tenderness you can provide him with. These are the types of things that make him feel “at home” with you.

Stability is something that Pisces craves and strives to build. Help him with this by doing your part and being the partner he needs. Pisces man needs a strong woman who knows how to lift her man up when he needs her.

Take him camping or hiking. Getting him outside and with nature will make him perk up. Even better is if you make plans to have some sexy time while you’re out there. Just try to keep momentum going once you are done so that he still feels he can open up and rely on you to be the shoulder he needs.

Over the years, I’ve had a lot of my clients send me advice they got from dating coaches. They wanted to know if it would work with their Pisces man.

    1. Hi Cindy!

      I do hope you gave a heart felt apology after what happened. I believe if you tell the truth and you are honest about your apology, things should go well. Everyone makes mistakes and being drunk can definitely cause problems. Show him proof you won’t do it again with time and patience. Be loving and tender but be sure that you don’t repeat the performance. I wish you the best!

  1. Hello, I posted a picture online for attentional purposes and it really hurt my Pisces now he won’t talk to me

    1. Hi Kristen!

      Wow… I guess that depends on the nature of the photo. If you put up something racy then yes, he would be jealous and hurt you’d do that. He doesn’t want you to need attention from anyone but him. You have to try to see from his point of view. How would you react if he did the same thing?

  2. He said something to me I didn’t like so I hung up now he isn’t answering my calls I text him to say sorry we should have spoken about it

    1. Hi Carla!

      Oops yep you definitely hurt his feelings and probably pissed him off by hanging up on him. You’re going to have to give him some time to let it go. He will and you will be able to talk to him but don’t ever hang up on him again because he’ll figure you can’t take the heat which means you shouldn’t be with him. This is what he’ll think. If you would like more information about Pisces man, check out my book “Pisces Man Secrets”.

  3. I met a pisces man while still married. He knew I was and we pursued each other anyway(I’m a pisces female). We’ve only known each other for about two months and when my husband found out, he publicly posted to the pisces man on social media.

    Though my relations with the pisces man didn’t develop until after I was separated, because he was confronted, now he won’t talk to me. I just want to apologize and hopefully get at least a friendship back from it, if nothing else. How much time does he need before I can confront him in person to apologize?

    1. Hi Carrie!

      Yikes what a crazy predicament to be in. Sorry to hear that happened. I am not sure if he will speak to you again or not if he dropped it. He’s probably humiliated and now sees you in association with that feeling so he just avoids it. Maybe time can help him heal and get past it but I wouldn’t bet on it. I would give him a few months before you approach him. Learn more about Pisces man through my book “Pisces Man Secrets”.

  4. I found out my pieces man (not officially together) was sleeping with two other women. I didn’t confront him about it because we’re not together but I was experiencing some symptoms so I sent him this text:
    Hey, I don’t feel right down there and I need to know if I should go get tested. We’re obviously not together so u can sleep with who u want, but have u been sleeping other girls without protection too? You’re the only person I’ve been with this year.
    He didn’t seem mad about the text and gave me money to get tested.
    Fast forward a few days (still haven’t got the results) but I asked him if the results are negative can we still spend New Years together and he said “nope lol because you blamed me for being dirty. I have a Christmas gift for you too”

    I responded: How did I blame u for being dirty? Lol I just asked u if I should get tested. And when I called u I said it could be and STD or a side effect from birth control.

    He just sent the shirt emoji and now he’s ignoring my texts and calls. Do you think he’s done with me cuz he thinks I accused him even though I didn’t?

    1. Hi Ashley!

      He sounds like a player honey. Why in the world would you want to mess with him anymore anyway. You don’t have to be in a relationship but he could at least give you exclusivity. He should have told you that what he was doing as that was the responsible thing to do. If he’s not doing that then he’s not worth your time or energy. I do hope everything was clean and you’re alright. He is dirty in a way, let him go. I think he’s into head games and that’s not healthy for you either.

      1. Hi Anna, so I got that flirting intense chemistry with a pisces man who is married. We never slept together because he is with someone else. He told me he has really intense feelings for me and always will have, but he is to scared to lose everything and hurt his kids. It’s really beyond his strength. He didn’t want to admit he love me, until he waited his birthday to admit it?!
        When he came in my life I was just going out of a brake up and was really ambivalent about love and what path i should take. Torn between passion and love, let’s say that. The guy a broke up with is amazing… But things went wrong from the start so I wasn’t sure what to do.
        The pisces man told me that i should go back to my ex after a while. He told me it wouldn’t work between us, pushing me away., But still being jalous when i invited a friend to spend days at my place. I finally decided to listen to him and go back to my ex lover. I told him. He seemed happy for me but he started to act weird. Hot and cold (he always did it, but this time it was more efficient)
        I finally told him i needed a brake so i could give 100% to my men. He went really mad, finally said he would respect my choice. But he called everyday so i blocked him
        Now, he is mad because of that! Screaming to me he never wants to be in a love relationship with me anymore! Then after a week he writes to me and apologize for hurting me even if he thinks he didn’t do nothing and just want a healthy friendship, but he totally doesn’t want to talk about all whay happen anymore. He acts now cold and polite.
        What should i do??

        1. Hi Anna!

          If he isn’t willing to leave his wife then there isn’t a whole lot you can do unless you want to be his second choice. It’s not healthy for either of you. He needs to grow a pair and take care of business if he wants to be with you but he isn’t then gets mad about you moving on. There is nothing wrong with you moving on and being happy if he’s not going to do what is necessary to cultivate your love. I say keep doing what you’re doing. If he really wants to be with you and really loves you, he will find a way to free himself and be with you. If he doesn’t then you’ll know that he never loved you enough to do it. You do you and make yourself happy. If you want to know more about the Pisces man though, you can certainly check out my books on Pisces Man Secrets for more info. It’s up to you. I wish you all the best!

  5. Hi Anna, this is an aries girl with a scorpion moon and my friend is a pisces sun….i had unintentionally said u make me feel bad by hiding things and he spoke about his hurtful secret which he wasn’t comfortable about he spilled out cos he cared dat i might feel bad….and now he is hurt to the extent that he gives excuses to talk on calls i feel his reasons are excuses and is just available on texts… he blamed me that i have hurt him very badly by indirectly forcing him to talk about things which he was uncomfortable to talk that time…. and he packed his bags and left our area and went back his home…he talks only on texts currently… he was anhry on me he heard me talk abt the issue on call once bt post that no calls we r just on texts but he doesnt seem to have forgiven me…..what should i do to make things right as before?

    1. Hi Vina!

      Oops yep by making him feel bad or guilty, he doesn’t respond very nicely. It hurts his feelings and makes him want to go off into alone mode. It’s going to take some time if he says he’s that hurt. Be patient, be loving, keep things light and easy when you talk to him and let him come back around. He should go back to normal soon. You might want to check out my book Pisces Man Secrets as well because it could help you get to know him even better. I wish you all the luck of the universe.

  6. Hi Anna, this is an aries girl with scorpion moon. And my guy friend is a pisces sun. My bad one day i unintently ended up hurting him. i said he makes me feel bad by hiding things. And he ended up sharing his dark secret to me which he was uncomfortable to share at that point of time. he shared so dat i dont feel bad. But post that he was extremely hurt….he blamed me that i indirectly forced him to share things which he was uncomfortable about at that time and so he is hurt. He packed bags and left our area and went back to his home next day without informing me. Didnt pick my calls for 2 days and finally when he did we spoke about our matter but he was quite angry and loud…and said i was giving negative vibes and that he is in pain for forceful sharing the other day. After that call he hasnt taken my calls and gives excuses for why unable to take calls. He is just available on texts now….How do i get him to forgive me? How do i make things back as normal to previous like before?

  7. I am a virgo sun and Leo moon and he is a Pisces sun and a virgo moon. We had been having talks about the relationship feeling one sided (from me) and it felt like I loved him more then he did me. Anyways after lots of deep talks, it came down to his low self esteem and his lack of a purpose. I told him that I would be there with him to figure anything out and that I wasn’t going to give up because of this. He felt it was unfair of him to keep me in the relationship. No matter how much I tried to convince him of how much I love him and how much he means to me, he wouldn’t believe it. I get it, self love must come from within.
    So due to all this frustration I got drunk one night and posted an emo insta where it was us and I basically said that I love you but you don’t want me. Some of my friends saw it and were talking to me about it and convinced me that it wasn’t my job to fix him, etc etc. So I drunk texted him, basically writing out my inner dialogue which was why didn’t I deserve happiness, that I didn’t deserve him, that I can’t be with him because according to him he couldn’t give me the love and happiness I needed and I finally ended it with telling him goodbye and that I hope he finds himself and his person.
    I didn’t want to break up. Alcohol and my friends got the best of me. I thought I was making his decision easier for him by removing myself. But that’s not how any of this works and I hurt him deeply. He’s needing space now and it’a been 4 days since the incident and 3 days since I last talked with him.
    Will he take me back? Don’t I get to have one mistake and make everything right? I desperately want to reach out to him but I know I shouldn’t and I don’t know how long he needs the space for… a week? a month? forever?
    p.s. I have an anxious attachment style whereas he has an avoidant attachment style. I think it def plays a role in this.

    1. Hi Rachel!

      So he definitely understands his own issues and doesn’t want to put you through the highs and lows of his healing process and getting himself together. This is actually noble of him telling you all that. It took him lots of courage to be honest about it all. When he askes for space, you cannot think that days are enough sweetheart. He probably needs more than just a few days. If he believes he’s not in the right frame of mind to give you all you deserve then he’s not going to bend. He probably needs time for proper healing and getting himself together. There is no way to know how much time he needs honey. He has to decide that for himself. I think that maybe it’s a good time to work on yourself so that if there is an opportunity you can both be healed and work on your love together. I wish you all the best!

  8. Hi,

    My Pisces man broke up with me and we’ve been hooking up after that with no strings attached thinking that it would get us back together as it worked in the past. This time though, he really said that we’re not compatible and it’s not going to work out. I got agitated and sent him text after text telling him why he should reconsider his decision and that we’re meant for each other. He warned me that he’d block me if I still continue sending him messages of why we should be together and he did because I never stopped. I sent him another text though same night that he doesn’t have to block me and that I deserve respect. He unblocked me on FB the very next day but still won’t speak with me. How do I go from here? Should I initiate and apologize for my behaviour of not respecting his wishes or just play the guilt trip hoping that he will also realize that he made a mistake of blocking me when I all I really want to happen is for me to hear me out. Need you advice. It’s been days since we last talked.

    1. Hi Catherine!

      Yikes when they don’t get their way or feel you aren’t understanding them, they shut the door on the chapter. Give him some time sweetheart. Honestly if you keep trying to push to walk, he will close the door permanently. Go radio silent for a month and see if he does anything. If not then you can try reaching out after the month and see if responds. Keep the conversation to a minimum and small talk. Either way you’ll find out if it’s possible to heal or if you should move on. I wish you all the luck of the universe!

  9. Hi.

    I have been dating a Pisces man for up to 10 months now. We have had our flaws but we always find ways of fixing things. He has wronged me in these past few months but I forgave him and got past that. He has been constantly complaining about my controlling ways and started to communicate less with me till I confronted him. He then let his feelings out and has been distant since. I then realized I was wrong then apologized to him but he didn’t say he accepts or not. I have been making effort to take care of him but he is still distant. He never texts or calls anymore and I am 6 months pregnant for him.

    He recently had a baby with his ex and they have been communicating since. I feel neglected and ignored. Even when I text he is cold towards me, I don’t know what to do anymore.
