Rating even higher than physical attraction, the survey found that most singles consider meaningful conversations the most important factor when looking for a healthy relationship. The bulk of the people surveyed not only are looking for someone they click with, they also want their potential partner to know how to communicate well: In fact, 58 percent of people say bad grammar is a deal-breaker, even more so than bad sex. (If that isn't motivation enough to proofread your messages before meeting IRL, I don't know what is.)
Speaking of messaging your match, the survey highlights another potential deal-breaker: leaving a message on "read" and not replying. Uhh spoiler alert: Virtually no one likes that.
The takeaway to scoring points with someone you like: Communicate promptly, using proper English. As for the chemistry part? Well, there's no cheat for that one.
