We’re Actually Glad This Is An Online Dating Deal Breaker

Online dating is no longer taboo, and with all the dating apps available, participants are getting younger and younger. When it comes to your online image, you have to be make sure you come off interesting but also leave something to the imagination.

While doing this, you must also make sure your grammar and spelling are on point, as Zoosk recently found out 72 percent of online daters find bad grammar and spelling a turn-off.

9,000 people were surveyed and basically, if you’re in the beginning stages of texting or communicating with someone you met online, and you’re sending messages which are hard to decipher, you’re turning them off one badly-worded sentence at a time.

The survey did find 93 percent of online daters liked someone more when they added a period to the end of a sentence.  (Run-on sentences are annoying.)

With this in mind, your next online love connection could be one spelling-error free sentence away.
