Typos in Your Online Dating Profile Make You Less Attractive, Study Finds


All "teh" dates in the world can be "yourz" if you just remember to spell-check your dating "proffile." That's the takeaway of a new study of more than 800 dating-site users, which found people rank potential matches as less attractive when there are typos in their profiles. "In the case of online dating, inattentiveness can be interpreted as a lack of effort and interest in putting time and effort in constructing a dating profile," says study author Tess Van der Zanden. "This is subsequently likely to be perceived as unattractive." The good news is, most of your fellow online daters also suck at grammar and probably don't even catch your misspellings and poor punctuation. The study also found that only 33.5 percent of study participants noticed errors in other people's profiles.
