What does DHYB stand for?

Don’t hold your breath

DHYB is short for “Don’t hold your breath.” This is a common phrase people use when they want to tell someone that they might have to wait for a long time for something to happen, or that it might not happen at all.

People often use this acronym when they are chatting online or sending text messages. It’s a quick and easy way to express a thought without typing out the whole phrase.

The phrase “Don’t hold your breath” comes from the idea that if you were to actually hold your breath until a certain event happened, you’d probably pass out first! This is because, in many cases, the event you’re waiting for is unlikely to happen as fast as you want, or at all.
