  • Long texts... I don't mind reading long texts and, in my opinion, it makes me thing that the person genuinely likes talking to me and cares about my opinion.

  • Long texts with properly used grammar and punctuation is how I type and what I prefer. However, as long as I can understand what the other person is saying, I don't care too much.

  • Abbreviations for simple words irritate me. Especially shit like using "b" to substitute for "be" or "u" to substitute for "you". Abbreviations for long words I'm usually okay with.

    Acronyms I'm mostly okay with. Things like FYI, in my opinion, LOL etc.

  • Abbrv. are created for a reason.
    U abbrv when u r in a hurry.
    You write complete sentences when you're not.
    If you're in hurry well then come back later I suppose when you have time.

  • Might be related to your question, I hate it when I'm providing 99% of the conversation. and her 1% , which in the end means , I provide something to talk about , and I get a Me too , or cool , or yeah that's true , never anything to come back , I tune out and I never continue seeing or talking with such ladies.

  • I like a mixture of both of them. Like I'll use the obvious text terms that are common, but I absolutely hate when it gets so short that it's ghetto for instance der... Now that's ghetto.

    But I wouldn't call FYI ghetto I mean it's better than typing out for your information it's short and sweet like lol and all the other text terms.

    As long as it still stands for something basically and isn't using incorrect grammar or spelling something wrong.

  • Long text for sure, I love write a loooot of things, I don't know why, my mind just thinks about stuff and I'm like "I HAVE TO WRITE THE WHOLE THING", the idea of making words shorter is not that great for me. Yeah, you might save some time... but what's the whole point of it? XD I really don't get it. I won't say I never write in the short way, I do it too, but just for fun, I do it when I text a friend and we try imitate this neighborhood style XD

  • i dont really care either way. i prefer people to use real words most of the time, but if occasionally they use a short text i don't mind. its supposed to be for convenience. doesn't necessarily mean you're dumb

  • Long texts. I hate it when people do not use standard English. It really bothers me. However, i don't mind some words being abbreviated such as "Cuz, K, Ttyl" but if people do it all the time it really does start to bug me

  • Long texts mostly. I'm not good with grammar though so i just use lots of commas instead of colons and all that crap. Sometimes i'll but a comma but then not even put a period at the end of my sentences though lol.

    • I know right? It's so annoying! Like you text something really long and they text... "k". Conversation killer!

    • Yep, it just KILLS it... thats why I hate texting and prefer face to face conversation or phone call cuz then people can't ignore you or be rude when they know they can...

  • I hate texting so I go with short.

  • I don't like seeing a red line under the words that I type, and I'd prefer to type complete words. But I sometimes also do short common words like lol, omg, etc, wtf. But other than that, I use the long ones.

  • I like long texts, but abbreviations are alright. Like FYI. But the only time short texts are fine is when you're in a rush or if I'm talking to my best friend because we both hate texting and short texts are quicker, so the conversation will be over sooner.

  • Both. I like short, but I don't like it where it's so short, that I don't know wtf they're talking about. Like I wouldn't know what 'der' meant. I don't care for punctuation, but it would be appreciated.
