    I had this problem last time. In fact I think you me and Berk discussed the phenomenon and browsed each others' selections

    ...mind you I think "last time" equates to years at this point

    I'm more concerned that she... can't seem to find one of her kids? Really I'm not even sure how to parse that sentence.

    Well hey there dating people, you're looking good :winky:

    I'm thinking I might maybe possibly join you soon. Don't really want to, but I do at the same time. And i'm wondering how I'd even do at this point

    also maybe I'm not hip to it because I'm not single

    but surely a profile that's written so clumsily—with zero attention paid not even to grammar but to basic things like your SHIFT KEY and your FULL STOP KEY—isn't going to net you that much attention

    maybe I am overthinking this... maybe

    but a profile written like that makes me think that if you're so inattentive and vapid as to the way you "sell" yourself or try to attract people enough to send you a message, it does not make me think you are really very serious about finding someone on OKC at all and are just doing it for some other reason

    maybe those reasons are valid, sure, but I dunno, I feel like if she can't even put the effort into making a profile that's coherent, why bother making one at all

    My profile is stupid. There's no picture, it's full of bad jokes, it's not close to completion and I hate it. I still get messages at least once a week or more with people wanting to talk or go on dates.

    They all get ignored.

    You are definitely over thinking this. There are a lot of people who do not see grammar and all this as a priority. Especially not online

    That might not make them your ideal person, but it doesn't make them an unsuitable match

    Well in that case I've got to say that I'm a very petty and shallow person, because a basic grasp of the language is pretty much a must as far as I'm concerned.

    Or at least the absence of lols

    but Kyle, it's not even the grammar that is actually bothering me

    it's the sheer vapidity, if you will, of the stuff she is saying

    you read all that stuff in her profile and you realize that even though you've read it, you know NOTHING about her except for the fact that has kids, laughs out loud a LOT, has an allegedly cute butt (LOL) and cannot think of a six thing she can't live without

    I could see someone not having particularly strong writing skills consequently having a profile on OKC that doesn't really sell itself.

    It just gives a horrible first impression, since for sites like this it's really just your writing and your pictures that you have to work with.

    I don't care about grammar considering I ain't very good with it myself. What I am interested in is someone who likes being bound and gagged and transported across state lines.

    I don't think I'm very fussy, and I don't mean that in a defensive way

    mostly I think that, okay, you sign up on a dating site to meet people, usually because other more "conventional" methods have not worked

    when your profile is essentially the ONLY thing people look at prior to establishing contact, the fact that no EFFORT has been made to coherently share a single interesting thing about yourself, to me, indicates that if I messaged you, I'd be wasting my time

    either you're not really into the OKC idea and you're doing it because you really don't know where else to go

    or you want to seem completely "above" the online dating thing

    or you want to appear completely aloof and disinterested (WHICH MIGHT WORK IN REAL LIFE BUT DOES NOT WORK ON A DATING SITE BECAUSE YOU ARE ON A DATING SITE YOU ARE CLEARLY INTERESTED ON SOME LEVEL OR ANOTHER so it's bullshit anyway)

    and these things, to me, personally, do not appeal in the slightest (no matter how cute the butt really is), particularly if I were on OKC looking for a relationship with some potential

    Fair enough then. Less the actual grammar and spelling, more just the ability to portray ideas or just be interesting

    Yeah, while horrible grammar online bugs me, I know plenty of smart people in real life that just don't care about it online

    Nah. There seems like a good portion of people who dont really put any effort into their profiles or their messages. And probably a good portion of those who still get messaged a lot because they skate by on looks.

    Pretty much. I probably didn't make it clear in my initial post on the matter, but it's the lack of effort more than the lack of proper grammar that would bug me.
