Texting Short Forms


Texting is not one of my strong suits.  A matter of fact, I rarely text, and on occasion I even receive a text where I’m not totally sure what it’s saying due to the fact that it’s in a short form.  So, for anyone else who may find this helpful, I’ve included a list of texting short forms and their meanings – Enjoy!
