As the old saying goes, actions speak louder than words. And when you’re only using words, like you do in online dating, you have to make sure they represent your actions!
It’s easy for anybody to send a message and claim they’re well educated and lead a sophisticated life. But when the message that’s making those claims is filled with spelling mistakes and grammatical errors, it might as well say ‘I put no effort into this message’.
You have one chance at a first impression, and unfortunately you have to make that impression online. Make sure you do yourself justice by making that impression a good one! It only takes a few seconds to run your message through spell check, but it will make a lifetime of difference.
