How important is grammar to everyday life, really?

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 this fun infographic:

Methodology

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.

    Great article! Pinned & shared. 🙂

    1. Fun, isn’t it? And surprising too.

  2. Loved this research and information!

    1. Great and fun at the same time, isn’t it?

      1. The more we experience, the greater the rewards. FUN is an added extra!

  3. Interesting. And it’s kind of hard to hide your spelling ability while conversing online. Sure people use slang type like ‘yur’ ‘cuz’ ‘brb’ abbreviations and things like that, but eventually you can tell the level of the command of English with ongoing conversations. Great post Deb! Shared! 🙂

    1. Yes, I rather thought that ‘yur’ was more likely text-speak than a spelling error, but I reckon most of us can see past that these days.
      Thanks for the share 😀

      1. 🙂 Always a pleasure.
