I Think Good Grammar Is Hot

There really is something to be said for the sexiness of proper grammatical constructions. 1,717 People

    If you make a habit of writing in actual

    sentences and using and extensive vocabulary, hit me up! I love talking to people who understand and love the English language in and of itself.

    When people talk/type to me with proper grammar,

    I'm just more inclined to converse with them. I am especially annoyed by the excessive ellipses....after every sentence.....and the "ur cool lets b friends" people.

    There is this guy that keeps showing up on my

    home screen. pimSAYERSp, I think it? His grammar is the opposite of which I find desirable. Now he's a guy (I assume). But his abbreviations and shortcuts are hard for me to follow. Is this what the youth has to offer nowadays?

    I know it's really shallow ,

    but I won't date someone who doesn't have proper grammar. It's just because I think intelligence is the hottest trait you could have.

    Good Grammar Is More Appealing

    Good grammar is more appealing since the person you're talking to/digitally messaging seems to be more educated, and less moronic than someone who uses text talk all the time (acceptable when texting as long as the words are still eligible and you're in a rush. And personally I...

    Good Grammar Is Hot; Grammar Nazis Are Not.

    It's hard for me to find people who appreciate good grammar without practicing elitism or being competitive about it. I see people online make a lot of sarcastic, demeaning jokes about people who have writing problems, and that really turns me off. Although I understand why...

    It sounds pretty shallow,

    doesn't it? But there is a correlation between people with grammar like a bull in a china shop and a conversation fizzling out after five minutes.

    Grammar Nazi...

    But I really can't stand when someone texts me and their spelling is horrid. I'm not sure if they can help it but when I'm reading essays, my classmates act like its informal. They use slang and I'm just baffled :(

    Thank God I'm Not Alone .

    I was always a little worried about how excited I got reading something that's well written and how it made me feel about it's author . I find the correct use of grammar very sexy .So pleased that I have stumbled across this group , I feel much less freakish now .

    I totally agree. Also,

    it's close to Godliness. Proof-reading and editing is to your writing like flossing is to your teeth. People, it doesn't take long and you get 89% of the crap out from in between your words and phrasing! Maybe even more if you are very scrupulous and thorough in your...

    Nice Punctuation, Baby!
