“We have a very close relationship. He considers me his role model and we do everything together,” he told Blavity. “I study with him, we swap stories, he teaches me the latest dance moves in Jamaica, we cook together, go to the movies together — like I said, everything.”
But Morgan wasn’t the only one to pitch in. Their dad lent an assist, too, by setting the mood with some music.
“It was clear that he was trying to impress his date, which meant the onus was on myself and my family to share that responsibility as well,” he said. “I wanted him to spend time with her, so dad took on his weekend chores and I took on the cooking from dad.”
The night was a success -- not just with the teen’s date but also with thousands of people online. The Twitter thread received more than 3 million impressions and over 75,000 likes. The first tweet alone has more than 75,000 retweets.
Morgan was excited about the huge outpouring.
“The response from online,” he said, “has only affirmed that a lot of people still value this kind of treasured and chivalrous approach to dating even with the advent of social media where almost everything is ephemeral.”
Plus, he was thrilled for his little brother and promised to keep everyone updated on the couple.
