Dh - darling husband or damn husband lol

dd - darling daughter

ds - darling son

mil/fil - mother/father in law

ummm... Can't think of anymore off the top of my head. I'm sure there are forums that explain more. You could PM (private message) me if you come across any more. I remember when I was new and didn't know any :)

lol...ok dont laugh but im not even sure i know how to private message on here...i know that probably sounds stupid but until recently i only used the computer for facebook updates and email.  We just recently got rid of our tv and we just moved so this is my new way of trying to get to know people and quit letting my brain waist away by sitting around all day. any info anyone can give me to help me communicate better with people on his would be great! thanks for letting me in on the lingo secret...ill make a note!

if there is still anything you don't understand look it up on www.urbandictionary.com   very good resource for common lingo and abbreviations

if you click on the name of someone it will give you the option to send them a message, it works just like email
