I assumed you did know the difference, but incorrect spelling or grammar can irritate some people, myself included, and I have OCD, so give her the benefit of the doubt. And also, I think it would be better if you told her in person, as well as other important and significant things.

Dear Poster #2, while you may recognize and spell the words "you're" and "your" correctly, you lack in grammar. If-then statements require a comma because the "[i]f..." phrase, a surbordinate clause, precedes the independent clause. For example, if water precipitates from the sky tomorrow, then the game will be canceled. Best regards, OaGF OuchandGoodFight

This so many times. Proper grammar is sexy. And it can just get annoying when people constantly ignore it. I'm not saying that you need to watch every single detail, but in general using grammar is helpful.

It's a very insensitive comment from your girlfriend, and i hope she reciprocates your feeling in the future. But seriously. I learnt homophones when I was nine. Come on.

Agreed! Also, I'm relieved at the lack of commenters pouncing on "learnt". But just in case, "learned" is American, "learnt" is British. Both are equally correct, although depending on where you're from, one will seem more correct than the other.

I agree with this, if you are going to say something so important via text (which you shouldn't, really), at least have the decency to spell it properly!
