ENGLISH, PLEASE

A quick guide to avoiding one of the most common Tinder mistakes
While gathering city data and making sense of the numbers, the linguist in yours truly was hitching to run some filters on the bio and look for a lot of nuances that could only come from a deep linguistic analysis. Having looked at a number of Tinder related sites before, we also knew that people want to perfect their profiles in order to maximise their chances of a match. Let’s see if we can help you by also sharing some interesting ti(n)d(er)bits we found that will hopefully make you smile as much as they made us. One obvious way to get more matches is to make sure that your bio does not include embarrassing mistakes.

Puns are the way to my heart. Proper grammar doesn’t hurt, either.

PAINLESS LOVE ARROWS
 
Nicole,32

Luv the outdoors! If u can make me laugh, I mean truly laugh, your a winner! God has to be apart of your being. Luv a nice wine, dont smoke, Gotta luv dogs!

IMAWINNA!!!
Alex,25

Im a student and i enjoy listening to girls talk about them selfs… probably cause i think about guns, trucks, and what im going to do when your done talking.

SHES DONE
You wouldn’t want to have mistakes on a resume, would you? Treat your “About me” section accordingly: spelling errors can significantly impact your prospects. A study by Grammarly and eHarmony even went as far as quantifying that, stating that “Just two spelling errors on your online dating profile reduce your chances of a response by 14%”
Marvin,26

Losers give it there best, winners go home and fu*k the prom queen.

ONLY ONE!
 
Ashely,25

Easy going, but no push over. Secretly judging your grammar; its the teacher in me, can’t help it.

*IT’S – 1 TOO MANY, TEACHER
 
Kevin,23

WE SHOULD ASK KEVIN TO RAP IT
sentence above refers to men, even though, according to their findings, women are more likely than men to make grammar, spelling and punctuation mistakes in their profile. Interestingly, men seem more easygoing about it, despite no actual numbers being given out.
Kelly,22

I’m very social, out going, and faithfull! hope your a out doors kinda guy cause I love camping and taking spontaneous road trips. Big boobs are my best assett!!!

A MAN’S DILEMMA
 
Jerod,29

Grammar is important, except on Tinder profiles.

COLD BLOODED ANALYSIS
There is some data, however, that is unequivocal independent of sex: grammar trumps confidence. grammar_trumps_confidence Of course, not everybody would rule you out or feel the urge to correct you at the first spelling mistake,

Your/ you’re and their/ they are will be judged so good luck.

THEIR GONNA NEED IT IF YOUR SO STRICT
Wendy,34

Grammar matters. If you don’t know the difference between your and you’re, I’m not the girl for you.

JUST KNOW IT
but if your disregard for grammar and its rules is a constant of your written exchanges, this is going to prove problematic. grammar_feeeling_infographic Especially so if the person you are talking to thinks that poor grammar is but the reflection of your poor general knowledge or attitude towards life: this seems to be a big deal while looking for a potential partner, especially from the women’s point of view.
Jason,34

I can spell most words correctly and normally use grammar properly. That’s a turn on, right?

LET’S ASK THE LADIES…
Erin,36

Using proper grammar and correct spelling is way sexier than your gym selfies.

TRAIN YOUR GRAMMAR!
Randi,31

Good grammar is hot.

SPELLING HOT!
The fraud detection company SiftScience found a significant link between grammar and spelling mistakes and online scams. The message “ur”, for instance,  seems to be almost more four times more likely to be fraudolent than the correct spelling.
Luis,26

I once found the woman of my dreams on Tinder, then she asked me to send her money. Now I’m 5.7 million dollars less rich.

DANGEROUS MATCHES
Daniel,32

Nwanko,42

PROBABLY A NIGERIAN PRINCE
Most importantly though, it highlights a lack of effort, which is a great put off in any form, whether we are talking about your teeth or your English. Our “profile ideas” section can help you look witty and LITERATE on your bio, but remember to back that up with a little extra attention next time you encounter the most common traps
Alina,29

Those moments when…’to’ and ‘too’, ‘your’ and ‘you’re’, and ‘then’ and ‘than’ are not interchangeable. Oh wait. Those aren’t moments, those are just always.

READ AND LEARN
Mark,31

It seems a lot of girls find it important that I know the difference between there, their and they’re. Grammar, the difference between knowing your sh*t and knowing you’re sh*t.

GRAMMAR, IN SHORT
Paul,29

Grammar matters! There’s a difference between feeling your nuts and feeling you’re nuts ;). And a bigger difference between one nightstand and one-night stand…

THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS
The Wall Street Journal also chimed in revealing that first messages using text language such as “u”, “2”, “4”, “wanna” significantly decrease your perceived attractiveness.
Robyn,31

Intelligence & good grammar is sexy. “Sup sexy ur hawt” is not…

INNIT??
Dylan,24

Im a doorman/bouncer and I drink. I love watching animu and reading mango also im really into doing what ever the fuck I want. I am an alcohol and have an affinity for 9/11 jokes.

AN ALCOHOL READING MANGO?
There seems to be a trend related to the insurgence of the self proclaimed grammar nazis:
Aisha,24

All I ask, is that you know the difference between “your” and “you’re”, and apply accordingly…….. Yes I’m a grammar nazi, and I refuse to apologise for it.

UNAPOLOGETICALLY AISHA
Moses,29

The person who proofread Hitler’s speeches was literally a grammar nazi.

HISTORICAL FACT
Zack,25

Hello! Zack here. My grammar is impeccable, and I always use a napkin.

THE GRAMMAR NA(Z)PKIN
they’ve had enough of cringing at the various “See you their”, “Your a nice girl”, “Lets have dinner than!” and make it clear from their profile. Since the word nazi doesn’t quite make the cut for the perfect bio, they use a “codeword” to find like-MINDED people. The word in question is SAPIOSEXUAL
Ryan,33

For all you pop up sapiosexuals, I’m guessing you’re very didactic in bed.

THE IGNORANT FOLK
Oumar,24

In case you wondered, sapiosexual does indeed mean that I find tree sap attractive.

NOW YOU KNOW
Emma,27

Fluent in sarcasm. Avid reader and subsequently, obsessive about grammar/spelling.

THE SECRET OF SAPIOSEXUALS
Seti,33

I’m not here so i can fu*k you, however i will treat myself to a slice of your mind. Sapiosexing it🔥

SAPIOSEXING IT
Elizabeth,31

I’m sapiosexual, so you’ve got to actually talk to me first. I know it’s a hassle, but I’m bisexual, flexible, and guarantee that you and a friend could wear my bra as a hat. At the same time. It’s worth the trouble to actually talk to me.

YOU HAVE GOT EVERYONE’S ATTENTION
Erick,30

You: sapiosexual Me: access to Wikipedia 5’10.5 and busy saving the planet. Now all you have to do is swipe right and in case I fail to make you laugh, I promise I’ll give all your money back.

COUNTERMEASURES
Justin,29

Girls on here be like “I’m the biggest sapiosexual ever” but end up with the guy that reads with his finger under every word. But, by all means, you’ve set yourself apart 😂

BUT HE HAD A NICE SHIRTLESS SELFIE…
So whatever you are after on Tinder or any other dating site, please be advised to mind your grammar. Hoping you have both enjoyed this article and learnt something new today, we are more than happy to give you a few more examples of what NOT to write on your bio. Right before that, a funny song by the great Al Yankovic. If you have never seen the video,  just watch it now. You might learn something!

 

 

 

 


Kenny,25

The women in the pictures are my sister’s. Their the only people who insist I take pictures regularly. Haha.

HIS SISTER’S WOMEN
Courtney,25

How would I describe myself? Three words: hard working, alpha male, jackhammer…merciless….insatiable…

YEAH, BUT CAN YOU COUNT?
Ryan,29

Work is not my life, but it gives me a sense of porpoise.

WHATEVER THAT IS
Trevor,19

Looking for a girl with a good seance of humor.

TRY THE FORTUNE TELLER

No you’re not one night stand but I can be your accessorie.

ACCES-SORRY, NO
Lara,34

Herman,19

Only looking for something causal.

LIKE A LEFT SWIPE?
Emily,38

If your not open to having a real relationship. Please swipe left.

DONE
Anthony,22

Majoring in English, but I’ll only jokingly correct your grammar (unless you, like, can’t, like, not use like as like, a conjunction-then all bets are off) Also: avocados, Peepshow and Radiohead. If you’re into those three, we’re onto something.

SWIPE IF YOU (,)LIKE(,)
Ed,22
