I'm new to this forum. Would someone be so kind to maybe list the abbreviations that are being used in the postings? Thanks~

BM - Biomom
BD - Biodad
SM - Stepmom
SD - Stepdad
SS - Stepson (also seen as DSS - Dear Stepson)
SD - Stepdaughter (also seen as DSD - Dear Stepdaughter)
DS - Dear son
DD - Dear daughter
EW, ExW or XW - Exwife
EH, ExH or XH - Exhusband
SO - Significant other
BF - Boyfriend
GF - Girlfriend
CS - Child support
CP - Custodial parent
NCP - Noncustodial parent
EOW - Every other weekend
CO - Court order
I think that's the really common ones

Sometimes you might see
GM - Grandma
GD or GP - Granddad or Grandpa (that one doesn't appear often though)
SGM - Stepgrandma
X - Exwife or Exhusband
N&Ns - Nieces and nephews (I use this one a fair bit, but I've only noticed other people use it once or twice)

As for general net abbreviations that we sometimes see on here
IMO - In my opinion
IMHO - In my honest opinion
JMO - Just my opinion
WTH? - What the H3ll?
AFAIK - As far as I know

We also have abbreviated nicknames for one another:
Ima is Imamommy
TOS is theotherside
FD is Finedreams
Mo4 is Mom_of_4
I've seen benicebekind called BNBK
And so on

I always think it's funny that the abbreviation for bio-mom is the same abbreviation commonly used for bowel movement:) I'm not being mean, as I am a BM (bio-mom) myself. Has anyone else ever thought of that?

Haha, thanks Rachel, but it only took about 3 minutes to run through the list in my head :)

I am 71 and I think of myself as a modern woman who gets right in on new things. I am first and often the only one in my circle of friends and family who embraces new technology like PCs, but I guess I am finally getting old. I hate the abbreviations, especially the one for names of the posters. I had no idea what they stood for, I just get disgusted and move on. I would never be able to read a text message from a kid. LOL

If I want to address a poster I copy and paste their ID.
