In the last Roderick on the Line
, John says that he always gets a houseguest a glass of water, before they ask - because 9 times out of 10, someone always loves a glass of water. I love this idea. What are some low-key courtesies you extend or have had extended to you by friends, romantic partners, suitors, etc. that show someone you're thinking about their needs and general comfort?

It's top of mind for me right now because I'm in the very early stages of dating a woman I'd really like to floor with kindness, but I'm interested as a general organizing principle for my life more generally. Tips for all sorts of settings work, but I'm particularly interested in the sorts of things you do when you invite someone to your home. Again, more about the little things than the big ones. Thanks!
