It's Official: Bad Grammar is an Online Dating Don't [INFOGRAPHIC]

By Krissy Dolor, Jill of All Trades/Certified eFlirter

We've said it once, we've said it a million times: good grammar is important when you're dating online. In fact, a recent study from Kibin.com reports that 43 percent of singles say bad grammar is a turnoff — something to keep in mind with Valentine's Day fast approaching.

Since initial virtual conversations take place via words on a screen, make sure your messages sound as if you know your A, B Cs. While people like myself (a notoriously stringent editor) or Certified eFlirters (who see digital dating fails firsthand) can tell you that spelling and proper English matter, you really should listen to the source — fellow eDaters. 

Check out some other stats below, including one on how 35 percent of online daters think good grammar is sexy. What's a better incentive to proofread your profile than that?
