"You're beautiful!" beats "you're beautiful" any day. In fact, a recent study found that messages ending with exclamation points see higher response rates.
Zoosk.com, a popular dating site, released stats from a recent survey that show just how important grammar is when messaging a potential date. The survey of Zoosk users, which received 9,441 respondents, found that when messaging a potential date for the first time, you're 10% more likely to get a response if you end your message with an exclamation point. Got it!! The acronym LOL also showed a high response rate (+25%). Guess excitedly laughing out loud is the way to go.
In general, the survey found that grammar and spelling are incredibly important to singles. 48% of singles said that bad grammar is a deal breaker and 72% of singles said they're turned off by spelling errors. Well then, spelling bee champions must be great with the ladies.
