Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Is grammar important in our love life? Can bad grammar affects our love relationships? Apparently the answer is: Yes, it is! 

I know you're thinking "here's the usual boring teacher!", but it is not just me, you know. There is evidence . Truth is, Grammarly, the team behind the popular writing app, partnered with the online dating website eHarmony to determine whether the writing skills displayed in people’s online dating profiles affect their chances of finding romance. Grammarly summarized the results, along with other online dating statistics, in an infographic.

How did Grammarly put together the results above? 

Grammarly reviewed 10,000 eHarmony male/female matches generated by eHarmony’s matching algorithm. Fifty percent of the matches advanced to two-way communication, while the other 50 percent failed to advance. Each male and female in a match wrote long-form answers to questions on their dating profile. These writing samples were analyzed by Grammarly’s automated proofreader for accuracy in grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

I do tend to forgive grammar mistakes on social media (FB, Twitter, texts) more than emails. I find autocorrect will change words on me unexpectedly.

You are right, Denise, sometimes autocorrection makes me seem foolish or even illiterate :-(
