It's Saturday, and I'm feeling generous...


As I peruse profiles of the men who have messaged me on Heated Affairs, I'm irritated. Not so much by the content, but by the grammar, punctuation, etc. As a result, I've decided to offer up my services to redo profiles for those in need. Lord knows, I haven't been afraid to tell people when their profiles need help, so why not offer to rerewrite them?

I doubt it'll do any good, but why not offer? I can safely say that most of the folks who read my blog have no need for my services, but if someone was willing to give constructive criticism on it, would you take it as such?

I will give one piece of advice here - if youre going to take a selfie, do it from above. Make sure youre looking at the camera lens, not the screen! And smile!

I would be embarrassed to have grammar mistakes pointed out to me.

I love dangling participles (because of the name and possible implications)

i think its a nice offer......

i could also see where it could be seen as embarrassing too, however it depends on the type of person one is trying to attract.

Some want ones that are attracted by appendages.....others need to be attracted with words. Some need a semblance of both.

I hope someone shares your vision and replies ~

That is a very generous offer. However, I suspect those most in need of your skills (writing, in this case) would probably have to be wrestled into submission, just to accept the idea of improving their profile. Although … I guess that could be considered some form of literary foreplay … ? Women probably do tend to notice something like a poorly-worded profile more frequently than us knuckle-draggers, but those who have such a profile probably don’t think there’s anything wrong with what they have now. It may be an uphill climb, just to offer a helping hand. You never know … maybe there will be a few takers. Be gentle with them?

I wouldn’t be opposed to some feedback. It doesn’t necessarily mean I have to take their advice, or the change may come out a little different than suggested, but, apparently, mine is not the only perspective on life, the universe and everything in between?

Seriously I think that it would be nice if there was somewhere on the web that would offer that kind of help for people who aren't sure what to write and are worried that they will be misunderstood. Not just for sites like this but for any site that requires you to fill out a profile. After all you can get help with resumes and job interview questions, why not this.

Please don't let me be misunderstood.

I truly understand what you say, I know that there are people on here that have become known as grammar police. I am not sure it matters. If this was a site for some other tropic, maybe technical, medical or other subject. It may matter to those that have an interest in the subject matter. As the accuracy of spelling and grammar would matter..
I for one don't pay to much attention, to this here on these sites.. We do have our share of people that dont know where to put "their or there" or use "our" instead of "or". To the nonpaying patron as long as it makes some sort of sense, it plays good in their mind.
I have personal problems, age, dyslexia, never did learn to keyboard, and spellin' was not good at all. I just trudge along the best I can.
I welcome any help or suggestions on my profile, even critique of my blogs, maybe I have a habit you can spot!! I would not be embarrassed by any comments. Thanks in advance for this offer, you are asking for a lot of work.

it's not a good idea!!! the person's grammar tells me loads about them. if you clean up their text then the reader is not getting an accurate presentation of the member . the reader is going to be seeing a blended profile of you and the original writer.

some mistakes are carelessness - some are education problems - some are intentional expressions of individuality (like mine - i don't capitalize "i" and i use dashes rather than semi-colons - and so on....)

oh - one more reason i intentionally incorporate grammatical errors into my profile. if i use an apostrophe to show possessiveness , the Heated Affairs often converts the apostrophe to a series of confusing characters. so i don't write "woman's" , i just write "womans". my thinking is that the reader is going to be confused less by my incorrect grammar then they are by Heated Affairs's translation.

Great offer!
I do a lot of this on my phone. So, I expect lots of typos. And probably grammar errors.
Tiny screen, big thumbs. 😜. You know what they say about big thumbs….

Have a great day! 💋

Everyone, even Professors of English, makes mistakes. However, I've seen profiles from men, women and couples that make me think that they never made it past the 5th grade...... She's offering her services to make those people appear more intelligent than they are. Seems to be a great offer to me! Of course, Heated Affairs edits what people post, and often delete certain words, but there are posts that just don't make sense due to the person's lack of writing skills. Yes, she's making a very generous offer!

Constructive criticism is and should be welcomed. Grammar wasn't and still isn't a strong point of mine and probably could use more help there than most. I'm going to change my profile in the next couple of day's and would love to have you do a review and total redo if you deem necessary . Thank you.
