While they offer useful information on the practical—from table settings and introductions to thank-you notes and condolences—the Posts make it clear why good etiquette matters. Etiquette is a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others, they remind us. Ultimately, being considerate, respectful, and honest is what’s really important in building positive relationships. "Please" and "thank you" do go a long way, and whether it’s a handshake, a hug, or a friend request, it’s the underlying sincerity and good intentions behind any action that matter most.
