Perhaps it's best to steer clear of someone claiming to have a GSOH (great sense of humour); wouldn't they have written a funnier ad if it was really true?
And a W/E (well-endowed) N/S (non-smoking) SWF (single white female) may sound like a good bet until you read on and find out that she's also SITCOM (single income two children oppressive mortgage), not so much fun anymore eh?
We look at the use of Internet abbreviations and text speak acronyms in dating conversations and advertisements to help you in decoding ads for dating. Once you have mastered the art of decoding the ads Internet and text messaging adventures become central to online dating and add to the excitement and fun of early contact with a stranger.
However, Internet pages, chat and text also carry with them the risk of confusion and misunderstanding if you are not familiar with some of the acronyms (abbreviations) that are now becoming part of the language of love and dating.
Care when using Acronyms Abbreviations are particularly useful when you are communicating in the limited space of a newspaper advertisement, phone text or an Internet chat window.
