FML - The follow-up

Today, I sent my girlfriend a text saying, "Your the best girlfriend any man could have, and I think I may be in love with you." Ten minutes later, she responded with, "*you're". FML

If you're old enough to be in love then you're old enough to know the difference between "your" and "you're".

Good thing that she got her senses right, and that she corrected you is positive to show you that you can not do whatever you like :P And I am glad you are not rushing things and use words as "I may love you" But still a minor FYL moment though, since spelling can be hard at times. Or grammar

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.

Oh, sorry for not being perfect. I was walking to class, wasn't exactly paying attention to my spelling.

Well, you did it wrong. Sorry, I just had to do it.

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.

There are different reasons.. I am talking for myself now: but I always say it over text first because I am almost unable to say it directly the first time because I am socially awkward

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!
