Dear [Recipients Name],

I want you to know that I feel sorry for having missed our dinner date day before yesterday. I was in haste to meet my company's deadline and, therefore, had to overlook our engagement. Can we make another schedule for the coming week? I love spending time together, and it also gives me a good break from the stressful time in my office. So, Let us join at Jin's Cafeteria at evening next Thursday; it's got to be my side of the treat.
