laugh Hi am new to this site. I think it's great to have a free site to meet/chat with others. Two things I've noticed though and wonder how others feel about this:

1) There are some posts where people really cannot spell simple words - is this important?

2) It seems that most guys want to meet ladies who are at least ten years younger than they are - is this normal?

I have browsed through some of the other forums and find them interesting. I am using my work pc so only log on once or twice a week...professor

The typos are expected and usualy ignored, as long as there is sentence structure. Not true on the age thing. Not most men, Maybe alot of men, but some men prefer older women.

Welcome to Connecting singles!

1) Some folks really CAN'T spell, but they're good folks, so we over look it. Others CAN spell, but don't type very well - but they're good folks, so we over look it. Some aren't all that fluent in English - But they're good folks, so we over look it. Some can spell but don't give a darn. (We try to ignore them!) A few just get so involved with their response that they forget to proof-read. And still others don't even seem to be able to spell PROOF-READ, let alone grasp the concept of it. (But they're good folks, so we try to over look it.)

2) I can't speak to #2, as I've never paid much attention to what other guys are looking for - I've always been more concerned with what 'I' was looking for. (Thanks to Connecting Singles, I found her!)

Good luck and, again, Welcome to CS!

Bad spelling can indicate 1 or 2 things. Lack of a quality education or laziness to bother to spell check their post. minor typos don't bother most people but really horrendous spelling can sometimes be difficult to read.

I've been told more than once by women that well written text is "sexy" and some have said they don't even respond to bad usage and lots of misspelled words.

BTW I spell checked this and found I misspelled the word "lazyness" and corrected it. so, we all make mistakes.

On the age thing, "maturity age" I think is more important than chronological age. Women seem to mature faster than men so men are looking for their equal which can go either way.

Interesting that one from SA leaves only to be replaced by another.
Karma, fate, yin/yang? confused

Welcome and I agree with you on the spelling. When I was young my spelling and grammar was dismal. I kept a dictionary near and read it daily.

Hi, thanks for all the welcomes! - (not sure that that is grammatically correct!laugh ) I would love to respond to some other posts but don't want to use too much 'work time' so here goes: I also just realised that I find correct spelling, punctuation, structure of words/sentences 'sexy' - never thought of it like that before but definately as one of the ladies above said - I also don't pay much attention to writing when it appears that no effort has been made to ensure that the writing is coherent. I probably also misspell words from time to time, but I do know that when I realise this, I certainly take the time to correct it. I remember years ago, reading novels with a dictionary by my side so that I could follow the storyline more accurately. Nowadays with dictionaries available online, things are even easier.

Thanks again for the welcome - wonder where the other South African has gone to...
