  • DD = dear daughter
    DS = dear son
    DH= dear husband
    SO = significant other
    SS= stepson
    SD= stepdaughter

    Honestly, I have always thought they were kinda silly, especially when I became a member a short while ago. Me personally, I can take the time to type out a few extra letters and spell something in full.
