I thought my English was good until I tried chat sites.

With no tone and hand movement I struggle with slang and shortened words.
it could also be that your english is too good - e.g. you're expecting others to follow the (slippery, often not well followed or even understood by native speakers, and usually evolving) rules.

@blackguard I learned my English from books and dvd. But not slang and also references to tv shows and music
@Lapochka yeah... by the rules as opposed to actually as it's most often used. almost like the difference between theoretical and experimental physics or other sciences.
It takes time. American English is a sloppy mess.
