Eighteen years ago, I was chatting with this man I had never met on AOL Instant Message. We lived in the same city and had started chatting through AIM one afternoon. Keep in mind this is something I had never done before, but something led me to say “Hello” back. We are closing in on 17 years of marriage and I have never regretted saying “Hello”. This was way before online dating was popular. In fact, I usually lied when people asked how I met my now husband because it was embarrassing to say we met “online”. Dating websites are extremely popular and many have found love through websites that match up your interests and personalities with someone else.
I thought this fun infographic from GRAMMARLY would be interesting to some of you this Valentine’s Weekend. If you are looking to set up a dating profile, there are some good tips for how to answer questions and describe yourself below. I would have to agree with the finding that women were turned off by men who used incorrect spelling in their profiles. That would be a turn-off for me as well!
