With the rise of social media and texting came an entirely new way of communicating--so if you're having trouble understanding what Millennial couples are saying to you, you're not the only one!
Here's a quick cheat sheet to help you roll with the cool kids:
Bae: Today's cool way of saying 'my love' or 'my boo.' Technically an acronym for 'before anyone else.') 'Me and Bae are at the movies!'
Basic: Unoriginal, uncool, average. Example: 'That mocha Frappuccino is so basic.'
Lit: Hopping, exciting, awesome. ‘That party is going to be so lit.’
Thirsty: Desperate, craving attention. ‘That guy is so thirsty. He is always texting me.’
Squad: A posse or crew. 'My squad will be there.’
Yaassss: An overly enthusiastic way of saying, ‘Yes!’ [Photo of a delicious piece of cake] ‘YAASSSS!’
V: It means 'very,' as in 'I'm V excited about my wedding day blooms!'
Swag: Used to describe someone with style who doesn't really care.
I can't even: Watch out for this one! It means losing patience, at a loss for words or pretty annoyed about something.
On fleek: On point, excellent.
