    Why do you want to know?

    Please note that we only accept standard English on this forum.

    Perhaps you'd like to ask your question again.

    Re: how old R U

    Hello Eric, and welcome to Using English.
    As Rover said, abbreviations that may be appropriate in texts are not acceptable in this forum.
    That includes "r u" for "are you" and even things like "thx" instead of "thanks."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: how old R U

    By Red5: This forum is designed so that learners can ask questions to teachers about the English language.

    Other than 'r u' being 'are you', your question isn't asking about the English language.

    If you also said "Is this type of sentence allowed in this forum?" that would be different.
