We will keep this thread as a 'sticky' thread for members to contribute abbreviations to and then we'll update the Abbreviation link in the HL after this has run its course.

PLEASE do not put abbreviations in here unless they are globally known as legitimate abbreviations in the infidelity/forum world.

Also, please read the current Abbreviation list in the Healing Library to make sure the abbreviation you're about to submit isn't already listed.

We will keep the first post of this thread updated, so please read the first post to avoid posting duplicate abbreviations

"t/j" = ?

Could someone share that secret?

Thanks in advance.

Thread Jack.

It's like hijacking the thread with a tangent-thought, leading it away from the original intent.

FOO = Family of Origin

TT = Trickle Truth

Along with t/j, it took me forever to figure out what TT was.

Of course, then I realized, I already was intimately familiar.

HB = Hysterical Bonding
Sex with your WS after D-Day, often described as the best sex you ever had together. There are several theories as to why it happens. Maybe someone will expand on this.

ETA = Edited to Add

silverhopes posted 9/5/2012 10:28 AM

Apologies. Just re-read instructions. These definitions were already in the healing library.

WW = Wayward Wife (not just "wayward")

fWW = Former Wayward Wife (not to be confused with XWW = Ex Wayward Wife)

fWH = Former Wayward Husband (not to be confused with XWH = Ex Wayward Husband)

COW = does it stand for Coworker Other Woman or for Crazy Other Woman?

COM = Child of Marriage (the child/ren between the wife and husband, not the OP)

Question: in the HL, it says that MOP = maybe other person. I always thought it stood for "married other person"? Has the definition changed, or am I just behind?

Thank you.
