    Re: Make out

    Also, you need to remember to put a space after every comma.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes,You're right. It was "to make it up". I watched that video again and realized that it is. But, I still don't understand the meaning of that in this sentence. "I think his heart just got broken, why don't you give him a hug, to make it up"?

    Please read post #3 again. In addition, note that you have to put a space after every full stop (period) too.

    Re: Make out

    Is there a reason you can't edit it yourself?
    In addition, note that you can't put a full stop after an exclamation mark.
