I Think Good Grammar Is Hot

There really is something to be said for the sexiness of proper grammatical constructions. 2,977 People

    Seriously. Big words?

    Lots of syllables? Intellectual stimulation? Yes, yes, YES! I have actually swooned before because of this. In contrast bad grammar is a HUGE turn off for me. "Hi how r u? Gr8 wots Ur numbr? I will b 12 2moro" If you're not a 12 year old then why? You're not rebelling against...

    What should be a given is

    now considered a differentiator. My pet peeve is "u" for "you" and "n" for "and". That's not even technically grammar. I just prefer to talk with other adults rather than decipher the ramblings of a pre-teen vocabulary? And that's insulting most pre-teens.

    Excellent grammar and spelling is always

    attractive. It means you aren't sloppy. I'm very forgiving if English is your second language, but if you grew up speaking it, you should try your best to communicate clearly. It is just the polite thing to do.

    Definitely. Not that I'm a grammar nazi.

    I sometimes make mistakes too. But I think it's important to use proper proper grammar. :)

    poor grammar. I can't help it. It's a fricking deal breaker.

    I just had a 10 minute conversation with a

    friend about grammar and punctuation. The differences between certain words, when and where to punctuate, and poor spelling. It was an exciting 10 minutes :) Wow, sometimes I forget what a nerd I can be.

    So we agree that, at minimum,

    knowledge of the difference of good command of the language is hot. What is not hot are the people who seem lazy and ignorant and go around throwing your and you're incorrectly and all attraction is lost because mother **** it's impossible to correct people without being RUDE...

    I am a spelling Nazi.

    It's a pet peeve. Although, as I age I find myself forgetting how to spell. I may have to dial it back to spelling guru.

    I can't stand men who don't write properly, unless they have a good reason for it like dyslexia, in which case it doesn't bother me.

    When a man can correctly use adjectives

    and adverbs, I swoon. There is the typical appreciation of proper usage of "their, they're and there" or "your, you're" or "it's, its" but when a message comes through appropriately using words like "slowly" versus "slow" ... my insides get all hot and bothered.

    When someone has good grammar it just makes my

    mental image of them better and more attractive. If you don't use correct grammar, that's cool and all, but my opinion of you will be different if you do otherwise. Juuust putting it out there ;)

    It's not that I think good grammar is hot

    so much as bad grammar, or using the wrong word, is extremely unsexy and I just can't seem to get over it. My most recent pet peeve is when people say " I seen ____ the other day" or something of the sort. SO. WRONG. Rant over.

    These words have been on my mind lately: Your
