Let’s Talk About Texts: Bad Grammar is a Big Sexual Turn O

Forgot the typical turn offs on a date such as a hunk of spinach hanging from your teeth, stinky breath or being a bad kisser. 

Turns out, using bad grammar even in a text message or social media post matters more than how bad in bed you are, according to a recent survey released by the Plenty of Fish.

The popular dating website asked over 2,000 singles what would make them swipe left and nearly 60 percent cited crappy grammar and common spelling mistakes. 

The survey’s findings are also in-line with a 2015 survey result released in 2015 by match.com. 

Other startling takeaways from the survey pointed to a lack of reply to a text that had been read as a deal breaker over the three-day rule which is no longer a rule in the dating world. 

If you are single and responding to a text use the winky face emoji, kissing face or heart eyes and skip using the least favorite emoji—the eggplant.

In addition to good grammar and the right emoji, do not advertise your political views in your dating profile. Close to 60% of singles surveyed claimed they wouldn’t even consider dating someone who’s political views differ from their own. 

No matter which way you lean politically, (and don’t kill the messenger) this is especially a turn off if you support or voted for Donald Trump, according to the survey results. 

Basically, if you want to hook-up more, skip the obnoxious bathroom mirror selfies, political talk, brush up on your grammar skills AND no eggplant emojis.
