Not All Native English Speakers Speak/Write English Well!

Do you feel intimidated when speaking or writing to a native speaker? Fear not! Below, is a text conversation between two people on an American internet dating website. The text in the purple bubbles is from a friend of mine. Let's call her "Mary." The text in the white bubbles is from a potential suitor. Both people are Americans, and native English speakers. Grammar and spelling mistakes like this from a native speaker are just completely unforgivable, but extremely humorous.

Next time you feel intimidated, speaking or writing in English, think of this poor guy trying to court my friend Mary.
