I thought it meant Darling Wife/Husband/ect... And that S/O was Significant Other. I have seen a few abbrevs that I don't know what they mean but can't for the life of me remember em now.

How about this guys: have any of you ever used net abbreviations verbally? (Whether it be accidental or not.)

I was an IRC addict when I was younger.. always chatting! Eventually I started using the lingo in every day life- and not purposefully either. After many years of 'recovery' I've gotten a handle (pun!) on it. Although by reflex I still sometimes say "brb", "lol", "lmao", "wt f" and "/me".

Edit: There is an internet lingo dictionary too (NetLingo) if anyone ever needs to look something up!
