Guy on Tinder (Australian dating app).
Nice in all aspects, but used "either" instead of "neither".
I lasted more than 10 years with my ex husband, only to find out during divorce proceedings that he is completely illiterate.
Is this new interest going to pan out, and was all a spelling error due to his excitement with the idea of conversing with someone as amazing as me, or should I pull the pin now?

I have to say, though, your post isn't exactly flawless. Which means you can see how easy it is make small errors online and when under stress.
I won't lie, I couldn't be with someone for whom a reasonable standard of English wasn't important. I wouldn't, however, dismiss someone for conflating or mixing up either and neither.
