Am now trying to fix him up with one of my favourite people. I'm totally telling this story at their wedding- Holly Brockwell (@holly) January 4, 2018

That basic good manners is so refreshing for you is really eye opening. There is so much shitty behaviour I just never see and this really underlines that fact. Thanks for sharing this.- Joshua Garrity (@combinehunter) January 4, 2018

I really stress and fret about asking people out and usually end up not, but if basic good manners is considered exceptional I maybe ought not worry so much. Thanks for sharing this! :)- Adam S. Leslie (@MrAdamSLeslie) January 4, 2018
