Men and women commonly use Internet acronyms in their E-mails. Acronyms are abbreviations for words or groups of words formed from the initial letters of the original words. I never take the shortcut in E-mails. I am fully invested in the process, and take the time to respond to only those men who have piqued my curiosity; so when I do respond, I give them my full attention. In this case, attention to detail can make all the difference. You want to be aware that there can easily be interpretation issues in the written word, so be particularly mindful when texting and E-mailing. You don’t want him to misconstrue the message you are trying to convey. When E-mailing, space is usually unlimited; however, in text messaging, these acronyms come in very handy, as the number of characters permitted is limited. See the complete Internet/Text Acronym Dictionary at the end of the book.

Examples of common Internet/text acronyms:

LOL =  Laugh Out Loud
LMAO =  Laughing My A** Off
ROTF = Rolling On The Floor
TTYL = Talk To You Later
BFF = Best Friend Forever
