How? You’d be amazed what good spelling and grammar can do:
48% of online daters rate good grammar as a deal-breaker.
72% are turned off by lazy spelling & grammar.
Just two typos in a man’s dating profile = 14% fewer positive responses.
27% think consistent bad grammar means someone’s "lazy" or that they "just don’t care".
25% judge it a sign of being uneducated or unintelligent.
Both men and women rank good grammar as "more important than confidence in a potential date".

With figures like that, proofreading your profile starts to seem like a pretty good idea — especially if you’re a man!
**Send me your online dating profile (up to 500 words) and I’ll proofread it thoroughly to ensure it’s typo-free and grammatically correct, within 24 hours.**
For longer profiles, see the ‘Extras’ below, or ‘Request a Custom Offer’.
**Introductory offer: Free Editing Advice. If you’re not getting enough responses, or the wrong kind, I will offer suggestions for improvements to your profile.**
Not unlike writing a dating profile, copywriting and marketing is essentially about crafting an attractive, compelling message tailored to your ideal audience. As well as professionally proofreading your profile, if I can draw on my experience in the writing profession to improve your profile in any way, I’ll also add editing suggestions. [In future, this may be offered as an ‘Extra’.]
*Who am I?*
My name is Tim. Am I some kind of dating guru? God, no! But I am an experienced copywriter, editor and proofreader, and occasional translator. In other words, an all-round word nerd — just the kind of person to make sure that what you’ve written is clear, readable and fit for purpose.
(N.B. Although I’m English, I’m experienced in writing and proofreading for clients and markets where US English is standard.)
