Thread Starter 
Not being a native English-speaker I am really in troubble with all the short forms you use on this site. Some are obvious but some really common once make feel really stupid when I can't figure them out.
The most common one is LOL and I been trying to figure it out for a month now. Is it just an expression you put instead of a smiley?
Other difficult once are DH and SO. There is a lot more of them but they don't pop up in my mind for the moment.
Could you help to fill in a short dictionary.
These onece I guessed .... I think:
SIL=sister in Law
MIL=Mother in law
Hubby=Husband
BF=Boy friend
CRM=Probably a brand of formula for kittens.

DH=Dear Husband (I use this one a lot)

IMO= In My Opinion

SO= Significant Other

LOL is laughing out loud

I'm so thankful someone asked this question because I've been racking my brain to figure out what DH meant & I don't think I would have ever come up with Dear Husband.
