Wondering, ‘what does Awww mean in texting?’
If someone used ‘Awww’ during a text message to you or on social media it’s almost certainly a good thing!
If you say Awww out loud it’s that noise people make when they think something is cute or sweet.
It’s commonly used across social media and text messages, but the context is important.
What Does Awww Mean in Texting?
If someone has written “Awww” to you in a text message, it’s likely they think whatever you’re talking about is cute or sweet.
It might even mean they think you are cute!
But as with all text messages, knowing the context behind a message is essential to understanding its meaning.
For example, the word “Awww” is often used to show appreciation for a cute animal photo as well as to say something you’ve done has moved them.
So, if you receive a photo of a puppy with the text “Awww,” the sender is likely trying to brighten your day.
Just as if you tell someone you like them or think something they did was cool, if they reply with “Awww” they’re touched by what you said.
What Does Awww Mean on Social Media?
The meaning of “Awww” on social media is the same as its meaning in text messages.
In general, if someone writes “Awww” on social media, they think what you’re sharing is sweet, touching, or cute.
They might also be trying to show their appreciation for what you’ve shared.
As with texting, the context of the “Awww” is essential to understanding its meaning.
For example, if you share a photo of your new puppy on social media and someone comments “Awww,” they’re likely expressing how adorable they think the puppy is.
On the other hand, if you share a photo of you and your significant other on social media and someone comments “Awww,” they might be trying to say congrats on your relationship.
In short, “Awww” is a positive response that can be used in a variety of situations.
So, if you receive a text or social media comment with “Awww,” it’s likely a good thing!
Oh, and there is no limit to the number of “W’s” you can use, and the more “W’s” the more emphasis is being put on how cute or whatever something is!
What Is the Full Meaning of Awww?
If you use the dictionary as a reference, the full meaning of “Awww” is listed as being;
Cute or sweet; Additional Information; interjection, mostly used by girls to describe someone or something cute or sweet.
So, as you can see it’s exactly the same as why it’s used in text-speak and online, which isn’t always the case when it comes to abbreviations used in text messaging.
Examples of Awww in A Text Conversation
Here are some examples of “Awww” being used in a text conversation:
Sender: “Hey! Just wanted to let you know I got the job!”
Receiver: “Awww, congrats! I’m so happy for you!“
Sender: “Thanks! I’m really excited about it.”
Sender: “I’m so sorry about your grandma. If there’s anything I can do to help, please let me know.”
Receiver: “Awww, thank you. I appreciate it.”
Sender: “I’ve got a new puppy, picture attached!”
Receiver: “OMG, awwwwww that is the cutest puppy I’ve ever seen.”
Why Use Abbreviations and Text Speak When Texting?
While “Awww” is not technically an abbreviation, it is commonly used in textspeak.
Texting abbreviations and textspeak are used for a few reasons.
First, it’s faster to type out abbreviations than it is to write out full words.
On a mobile device with small keys, this can be especially important to some people.
Second, using abbreviations can help to add a little extra emotion and feeling to a post in a way that using regular words cannot.
For example, the word “LOL” (laugh out loud) can add a sense of humor to a text that might not be there if you just wrote “haha.”
The same goes for “Awww.”
Using “Awww” in a text can help to emphasize how sweet or cute something is in a way that simply writing “That’s sweet” or “That’s adorable” cannot.
In short, if you think something is cute and want to add a little extra emotion or feeling to your text message, using “Aww” is a great way to do it.
