was i rute?
hi

as i was talking to my boyfriend yesterday and it hapened that i ask him a question as to why he broke up with his ex and his respond was, i told you before why, yes he did tell me but not all the details, because i was wondering why he made protection order against her, but he even said that sometimes iyou make me think you are not confident enough about yourself and you keep comparing yourself with my ex.

guys i never met his ex, we don't know each other so my response was, we all come from previous relationships and i can never compare you with my ex and i will never compare myself with your ex either, i take each person as an individual and mind you all the people are never the same they have their own advantages and disadvanges.

Its not automatically rude to correct someone's spelling --- and if everybody avoided doing that, nobody would learn to spell properly, and we'd understand less and less of what other people were writing. Some readers really wouldn't know what you meant by "rute", so you could get even weirder replies ! Much of the problem comes from people nowadays not reading enough, so they rely on how they have heard a word spoken, without having ever acually seen it in print. SO we can correct each other, so long as we do it politely and helpfully.
Similarly, it doesn'tsound as though you were rude to your bf, and he may be over-sensitive about this issue, perhaps he isn't altogether over his ex, and was expecting you to criticize him about this
