    It's never too early or too late to apologize. What matters more is how you apologize.

    1. Call him. It's much more personal and meaningful than a text. If he doesn't answer, then you can text him.

    2. Be sincere and apologize for hurting him, but don't apologize for the actual breakup. Plan out and rehearse exactly what you're going to say, because wording is important here. While you do want to express that you care about him and his feelings, you also want to be very careful not to give him the idea that you want him back sexually or romantically.

    3. Wish him happiness and good luck in his next relationship.
