I am the same way. It like, hurts my life. But a lot of men don't really care about spelling.
To the bold - Is his spelling that bad? If he's all beauty and no brains, then yeah, that would give me pause. Pick his brains - see if he can engage in stimulating conversation. Does he read? Or does he only know the latest LeBron stats? However, if he has a ton of other great qualities, I wouldn't necessarily let that be a deal breaker.

I speak from experience. My husband is very good looking BUT thankfully he's very intelligent also. Spelling just isn't one of his strengths. (I don't understand why his teachers weren't sticklers for spelling but that's off-topic.)

Hubs is an avid reader, so he's well informed about current events and even self-educated in a number of topics. By far I'm no Einstein, but I'm impressed by his knowledge of topics that I have a hard time wrapping my brain around (investments, economics, law), so his knack for spelling "spelling" with only one "L" gets a pass. If anything his spelling (or lack thereof) is now a common joke between us.
