I like some abbreviations like Congrats and simple things everyone can understand. One that drives me crazy that a lot of people here use is DH. I don't know why it bothers me it just does!

I don't really use them too much either... I prefer to sound a little more educated than that...

I dont know what else there is to call your spouse. lol. I just got "DH" from this site actually. I had never heard it before.
I dont like to call him my boyfriend, because he's so much more than that, but we're not married.

What's a good word for that?

lol, same here! The only thing I'll use is like bc (because) or apt (apartment) or appt (appointment)...stuff like that. But I hate "slang" abbreviations.

I plain old don't have the patience to text message anything, I might get 1 word right then have to erase the others to much trouble for me.
