I Think Good Grammar Is Hot

There really is something to be said for the sexiness of proper grammatical constructions. 1,612 People

    If someone messages me

    and it is obvious that they are accidentally making grammatical mistakes its a major turn off, if i can't even understand what a person is saying im not going to try that hard just to read their message.

    Repulsive Engish

    I am not sure if I could ever associate good spelling with 'sexy,' but bad spelling, as I found out, can be outright repulsive. I am not a fastidious person, and I'm not bothered by slightly incorrect grammar or spelling, but there came alone a person so illiterate and perverted...

    Engaging my brain and not insulting my

    intelligence with text speak will always get you farther with me. If you can't construct a grammatically correct sentence, it's such a turn-off.

    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...

    Nice Punctuation, Baby!

    Birds use song; fireflies use light; humans use verbs and prepositions.  Grammar is our mating signal.  The proper and creative use of adverbs, adjectives, exclamations (especially exclamations) rhythmically arranged with provocative punctuation can really stir the...

    How To Write Good

    Credit for this goes toย  Frank L Visco. . .My several years in the word game have learnt me several rules: Avoid alliteration. Always. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with. Avoid cliches like the plague. (They're old hat.) Employ the vernacular...

    These words have been on my mind lately: Your

    Grammar And Character

    Yes, good grammar is HOT. Believe me. . . it's how your story looks like next to your attitude. Your grammar tells about you and your stories tells about your attitudes.

    Good Grammar Is Hot; Grammar Nazis Are Not.

    Since the greatest erogenous zone is the brain, words can really set things on fire. Even though English is not my language, I really enjoy the properly written word. Good grammar is a sign of intelligence, and intelligence is a big turn-on!
