If you’re on the market, make sure your spell check is working.
Dating-site users rank others as less attractive when there are typos in their profiles, a new study finds.
“Inattentiveness can be interpreted as a lack of effort,” the study’s author explains. “This is likely to be perceived as unattractive.”
The good news is, most of your fellow online daters 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.
