Snapchat, Facebook, and even text messages have all contributed to the widespread use of slang. But what if the person you’re speaking with doesn’t know about them? What do you think?
The Internet is a great place to expand one’s lexicon in many ways, and slang is certainly among them. This time around, we’ve come to investigate what exactly HMU implies. Let’s get right down to deciphering it then.
Figuring out HMU!
HMU stands for “Hit Me Up!”
The individual who tells you to “HMU” really wants you to contact them. If your crush is the one that HMU’d you, you better hurry up and respond otherwise they might move on to someone else. *wink* Just send them a message or a direct message on Instagram. It’s as simple as giving them a ring.
Furthermore, it serves as an open invitation as well. Feel free to ask them a question or invite them to a social gathering. You can ask for anything you like from them.
Need some illustrations? Here it is!
- I can’t take this 9 to 5 grind any longer; hit me up if you want to get out sometime.
- Get in touch if you’re up for meeting up again.
Okay, off topic, have you ever been in a situation where you weren’t sure what HMU meant? You’re too perplexed to answer an HMU message, huh?
What does HMU Stand for in Text Messages?
You wouldn’t want to talk to your boss like that, and it’s not a smart idea to try. So, it’s best to just say HMU to your pals and coworkers. To ask someone to “hit you up” is a perfectly acceptable and even casual request. just make sure they understand what the invite is for.
HMU + TBH
One of the many formulations and applications of HMU is with TBH. When you combine the two, it means you want to know what other people really think of you and you want to hear those thoughts from them. If you want someone’s honest opinion about someone else, you can use the same method.
To be honest, that’s what TBH means.
Example? Who is Amelia to you? For a TBH on her, hit me up!
