This may seem like a stupid question, but what do all the abreiviations on here stand for......

Like I know that DD is Daughter, DH Is Husband, DS is son, but why the D in front? And I know I have seen others but didn't get them and dont remember them. SO is significant other, I am guessing. If you have used or do use another and want to fill me in on it would you please?? I would enjoy and accept any and all answers.
Thanks!~

  • I have also wondered this, it's not common abbreviations in places like online games or computer chat channels, but I get on a lot of technical programming sites and this is about the only "female" dominated site I get on where there are odd "to me" abbreviations. When doing a post I just type it out, and I skip anybodies post that have any abbreviations I don't know, got tired of asking what they meant and really don't care to work to figure out.
