The top two characteristics singles looking to date want in their potential partners are good teeth and good grammar. This surprising information was recently revealed in an online survey by Match.com, which asked both men and women to rate what traits they were looking for in the opposite sex.


Singles, and anyone else looking to improve their grammar skills, are invited to attend “Quick Fixes for Everyday Grammar Blunders and Business Writing Etiquette” from 1-2:30 p.m. March 9 at the Peters Township Public Library.


The program will be offered by Sydnee Bagovich, The Grammar Nerd, whose intense interest in grammar began in her grade school years. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Robert Morris University and an MBA from the Katz Graduate School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh.


“Like it or not ... fair or unfair ... we are judged every day by how we communicate through our writing and speaking,” Bagovich said. “Be aware of the message behind your message and learn how to be confident in writing and speaking with certain essential lessons.”


Register to attend by emailing programs@ptlibrary.org or call 724-941-9430. There is a $5 fee for this program, which must be paid the day of the event. Plan to arrive at 12:45 p.m. so that the registration fee can be processed prior to the start of the program. For more information, visit ptlibrary.org.
