If that guy or girl you’ve been chatting up online is suddenly ghosting you, you’re probably not sending the right message, according to a Plenty of Fish survey. The dating site surveyed 2,000 singles about what pushes their buttons over in-app chats.
–You don’t use “their,” “there” and “they’re” correctly: Digital natives are actually sticklers about grammar, as more than half (58 percent) said bad grammar is an even bigger turnoff than bad sex.
–You take too long to respond: Three in four singles say that leaving a message on “read” and not replying for days at a time is a much more annoying habit than replying too quickly.
–You use explicit emojis: Most people don’t want to receive unsolicited d**k pics – and that means they don’t want to see your eggplant emoji either, which was the least popular emoji, detested by 75 percent of respondents.
