How do I explain to her in a way to make her see I'm not making fun of her boyfriend?

A male United Kingdom, anonymous writes:

Hello, basically there's this girl at work who I've become close with as friends, she's a good laugh, she's 2 years older than me. Us and some other people from work went out at the weekend and I made a comment about her boyfriend, saying she can do better, he's 10 years older than her and I just thought his personality won't compliment hers because me and her get on really well and he's obviously really mature and taking life a lot more serious than I am. I was texting her tonight and she asked me why I said that, so I basically said I thought you'd have a lot more fun with somebody younger because you'd have more in common, enjoy the same things etc. And also said it wasn't my place to comment because I don't actually know him, only seen pictures and said I was sorry. Now I really don't want her to stop being mates with me over something I should have said because I enjoy talking to her and stuff at work, any tips on how I can explain myself better without making it look like I'm in any way making fun of her boyfriend? thanks.

Apologize to her in person and let it go. Whether you fancy her or think you'd be a better match is irrelevant. She is in a relationship, and apparently happy with him. Don't bring it up again and the tension created over your misspoken comments will disspiate soon enough.
