|1. Coming to the door to pick someone up.|
|2. Trying to dress really nicely for a date.|
|3. Bringing flowers or other tokens of affection to the first date.|
|4. Going dancing that’s not grinding on a grimy club floor.|
|5. Straightforwardly asking someone out and not calling it “hanging out.”|
|6. Additionally, being clear about when you’re “going steady.”|
|7. Romantic gestures like writing poems.|
|8. Turning electronics off and just being with one another.|
|9. The general concept of asking permission for things.|
|10. Not assuming sex is to be had at any point in time.|

Seriously can’t believe it’s been a year since Matt passed on. In one hand I feel like I was just seeing all the pictures and statuses from friends about the fun he was having at school but in the other hand, it feels like an eternity since he was buried.
Never miss a chance to tell someone you care about them. You love them. You appreciate them. Tomorrow is never promised.
Keep looking down on everyone, Matt.
“How was your day?”
“Text me when you get home so I know you’re safe”
“How are you?”
“I hope you’re feeling better”
“Have a good day today!”
“I miss you”
“Can you come over?”
“Can I come over?”
“Can I see you?”
“Can I call you?”
“Want something to drink?”
“Watch your step”
“Let’s watch a movie”
“What are you up to?”
“How is your day so far?”
“It will be okay”
“I’m here for you”
“Do you need anything?”
“Are you hungry?”
“I just wanted to hear your voice”
“You just made my day”
You don’t have to hear “I Love You” to know that someone does. Listen carefully. People speak from the heart more often than you think.
When was the last time you were called beautiful and felt it?
