I think it means Dear Husband. I have no clue. Maybe it's really Dingbat Hiding!?

It can also mean dumb husband Generally, dh is used as a term of enderment & not meant any offense. Like, for example "Dh got the wrong cat littler today!"

Uuuummmm, I believe it is USUALLY for Dear Husband, but Dopey Husband, or something of that nature, may apply, when some people are posting!!!

As a single woman, I consider it to stand for Don't Have. lmao

I always thought it meant 'Dear Husband'. That's how I've been using it, anyway.

No one is bashing. I'm sure DW could be used by men to mean the same things about their wives. Every person can be dopey or dumb sometimes, and can especially be perceived that way by someone they live with (no matter whether it's as roommate, domestic partner, or spouse).

I had only seen the term DH used here when I first saw it and for a while, I also thought it stood for "dumb husband".

Dizzy huffy?

Usually "dear husband". But sometimes "darling husband" or "dopey husband" or "dingbat husband" or "d*** husband"...

Maybe this is why I'm still single.

For those who find "dh" or "dw" objectionable, be happy you're not a German speaker. On many German-language sites, one's spouse/s.o. is referred to as "NG", which stands for "Nebengeräusch", best translated as "static" or "background noise". When my husband complains about the time I spend here, I tell him he should be glad that I refer to him as "hubby", rather than "static".

Thanks for the explaination guys.
But if you were using "DH" for a girl, then would it be
Dear Honey? Darling Hon? or maybe Delightful Hottie?
Just wondering.

Also, it's not even talking about you. If somebody jokingly & lovingly uses DH as in 'dumb husband', it's not even talking about you. I don't see how you could assume it to be directed at all of you- it's talking about one person, and it's not even serious. If someone used DW as in 'dumb wife' or 'dumb woman', I wouldn't be offended at that- don't see how I could be. They aren't talking about me, nor are they serious. So, please don't be offended, nobody is bashing at all.


...And I think it can also mean "Darling Husband".

Well.... if we don't like "DH" we could start using "MN".... media naranja (my other half of the orange)... it's spanish *shake of the head*

BTW... do you have any idea how long it too me to finally puzzle out "dh" without this thread?
