I'm at the age where I just can't take someone seriously if they type illiterately. Almost as if their worth have gone down in my books. Anyone else feel this way? Let's take dating for example, you try and impress the other person by looking your best, and try to have an intellectual conversation. Therefore, this should be the case in online chats/texting. Am I being too harsh? Too old fashioned? Of course, once you are familiar with the person, it seems alright but at the start, it really puts me off.

Not really these days. It's hard to find anyone who isn't an illiterate texter or typer when it's not for an essay. I always type with good literacy, but I have had to get used to the fact that no one else is going to.
I always ask the people I text why they type so shitty, and they just say "well I can't type/text fast so I don't have time to correct mistakes". My best friend and my crush both text terribly most of the time.
What turns me off more is that I often text multiple sentences, and they reply with like two words.0
