    To make your heart relent

    Hi there,

    I've got a problem. So, there is a girl....and I said something what I shouldn't have. Now I would like to apologise from her but in a very nice and romantic way and I thought the best thing is to write a letter. A nice romantic letter to tell her how I feel. It's almost done but I'm not sure about this phrase:

    ' to make your heart relent'

    Does it make sense for a native English speaker in UK? For me it does. What I want to say is 'something like 'to make your heart melt'. But I don't want to be too sentimental.

    Could you give me any advice, please

    Thanks

    It sems OK, if you like that sort of thing.
    Please take note of the corrections I have made to your post.

    Re: To make your heart relent

    Not a UK speaker, but to me, there isn't much difference in sentimentality between 'make your heart melt' and 'make your heart relent'.

    They're both pretty mushy.

    Re: To make your heart relent

    Thank you for your help. I noticed ages ago that is a problem with me. I don't know when to use that or what to link sentences together.
