Dating site acronyms

Zoosk is another good dating site if you want something casual.

It’s modern and has more than 35 million members, most of them being millennials.

Have you ever read an online dating profile and tried to decipher the internet acronyms listed?

Then keep this list of acronyms handy (or print it off and post it by your computer for future reference) and you'll understand internet-related dating lingo in no time.

Regardless of your age or dating experience, there are certain terms you need to know to avoid falling behind in the dating world.

If an acronym or phrase pops up that you don’t understand, it could lead to some serious miscommunication between you and a potential match.

It happens when a person who you went on a seemingly great date with doesn’t plan another, yet he or she sends you a random text every few weeks just to keep you interested in case they change their mind (or get bored). F2F F2F stands for “face-to-face.” This term is used when an online prospect wants to meet you in person.

It’s slightly less romantic than asking you out on a date using actual words, but it’s become fairly common to text and use acronyms as a way to defer any possibility of feeling rejected.

A no-strings-attached situation, which can be found on sites like Be Naughty or Zoosk, is when two people want to hook up, either once or on a regular basis, without the “strings” of commitment tying them down.

Think Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman in the aptly named “No Strings Attached.” When you’re in an NSA relationship, you usually try to limit your interactions with the other person to just sex, depending on what you two agree on at the beginning.
