Can you settle a friendly debate? Do you think that how a guy texts (grammatically speaking) has any bearing on how he’ll be in a relationship?
I like a good text
Dear “I like a good text,”
On the record? No, I think to judge someone based on how he or she texts is wrong and probably means you’re being too picky.
Off the record and more importantly, YES. I 100% believe that if a guy can’t produce a coherent grammatically correct text with punctuation and spelled out words then he will be a terrible boyfriend.
I don’t know the exact science behind the “bad text/bad boyfriend” relationship but if you’re having a digital conversation that in any way resembles this:
You: Hi, how are you doing?
Guy: gd, hbu?
Then case studies have shown that in the future your parents won’t like him, he’ll rarely pull his pants up all the way, and he’ll refuse to get a job.
So…proceed with caution.
Ps. Once you two get to know each other, you can relax these standards – allowing a “lol” to slip in here and there – but even then, be careful.
