    Yeah, I will sometimes not do punctuation if it's clear on its own, but I do tend to spell out the whole word.

    i text like i write here which isn't exactly proper but it's not text speak so the middle option i guess.

    My grammar is shit in general, but i try to keep it decent. My main concern is spelling and how i can word something to fit it into minimal texts.
    I abhor things like "where r u @ 2day" or other nonsense, unless it is for the lulz.

    The only time I don't use proper grammar/spelling is when I'm trying to get out of trouble or talking to a girl I like. Those are the two main reasons.

    usually because it bothers me a little bit, but not lately since my phone is dying and some of the letter keys aren't working as well so i have to work around it when i need to text quickly.

    I don't text-flirt very often, but when I did do it... a couple of days ago, she responded back similarly. I'd say so. In defense I am almost 100% positive, if not so, about her liking me so I'd say that adds some bias to the answer. The real test is if I can do it to a girl who doesn't 'like' me and it work.

    I actually wouldn't know how it's like to not use good grammar and spelling.
