    I use an app called Swype which is very good for quick texts and word prediction so my texts always seem fine.

    But I'm generally bad with grammar anyways, I have an awful tendency to switch tenses constantly within the same sentence, I'm sure it's very confusing.

    Yeah. I'm not really a grammar nazi, but I use auto-spelling so it's actually easier to write out the full word than the txt equivalent in 90%-plus of cases.

    The last time (and first time) I used "u" instead of "you", I felt something in me die a little.

    I don't mind if others use it in text or in chat. However, I get really mad when they only use 'textspeak'.

    I don't because my boyfriend and I have our own language, which defies proper spelling and grammar, and he is the only person I text.

    But good god, I never use "u" or "4". I'm not one for acronyms. Except for "bc" (because).

    Exactly! I absolutely hate when people shorten things and use acronyms for everything! One of my friends sent me IKWYM once and I had to go to Urban Dictionary to figure out what the hell they said to me!

    we were trying to decode one of the man's cousin's text speak laden texts over the weekend... 3 of us sitting around coming up for things that the acronyms could possibly stand for... I felt so OLD

    Ugh... I know what you mean... I hate deciphering some of it. My fiance and his mom text me and they like to shorten words and use numbers. I feel like I'm trying to figure out cryptograms sometimes!
