If it doesn’t, you’ve left the participle dangling, as well as your readers. I learned to write by reading obsessively at an early age, but when it came time to learn the “rules,” I tuned out.
But there are other mistakes that can detract from your credibility.
While we all hope what we have to say is more important than some silly grammatical error, the truth is some people will not subscribe or link to your blog if you make dumb mistakes when you write, and buying from you will be out of the question.
When I say “Russian women,” I mean not only women from Russia, but women from any former Soviet Union (FSU) country, including Ukraine, Belarus, Latvia, etc.
Most of the problematic women I encountered were indeed from Russia, but many were from its satellite countries as well.
I’ve mentioned before that several years ago, I completely stopped dating Russian women.
