    Hello:
    I often see text abbreviations on threads. I do not text, but I often do not know what they mean. Here are a few, if you have others please let me know.

    lol = laugh out loud
    rofl = rolling on floor laughing
    lmao = laughing my a__ off
    gtg (or g2g) = gotta go
    cya = see you [later] / goodbye
    2moro (or 2mrw) = tomorrow
    omg = oh my god
    h/o = hold on
    u = you
    ur = you're (or your)
    idk = i don't know
    sup = what's up
    wtf = what the f___
    hbu = how about you
    nm = nothing much
    ic = i see
