What does "BTW" mean?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Wow, I feel silly! Are there any other abbreviations that you can think of? I apparently don't know anything and I am only 28!! Haha! I have seen my friends text "BTW" before, but I always forget to ask. So let's start a list of the most common abbreviations. I need it.

I just learned that "DH" means Dear Husband
I believe "IMO" is "In My Opionion"

Let's see what else is out there...

BTW is by the way... I couldn't figure out DH for the longest time, I though an awful lot of people's husbands were named DH.

Oh, and BIL=brother-in-law and SIL=sister-in-law. I've never seen MIL or FIL but I suppose they are feasible. In addition to IMO being In My Opinion there is IMHO, my humble opinion. And OP, which seems to be either "original post" (in the thread) or "original poster" (of the thread).

Those are the ones that I remember having a hard time with!

First time I've seen that one.
there's also
ppl = people
bbl = be back later
ttyl = talk to you later
ty = thank you
afk = away from keyboard (gamers should know that one..)
...:censor::censor::censor: and wth, look those up on your own, they're not so polite.

a couple other less used ones, that honestly look rather silly to me...
srly = seriously
pls = please

other various short hand is used too
