What does IAGW mean?

In a good way

IAGW is a handy abbreviation used when you’re trying to make a positive statement, but you’re worried it might be taken the wrong way. It’s a way of saying “I mean this in a good way” to clear up any potential misunderstanding. For instance, if you’re worried someone might take your comment about their meticulous nature the wrong way, you can add “IAGW, of course!” at the end.

You might find IAGW popping up in text messages or DMs. Let’s say your buddy sends you a message that reads, “I think Peter is very determined…iagw.” It’s not a phrase you’ll see every day, but it does show up from time to time in less formal communication like emails and social media posts.

Example for using ‘IAGW’ in a conversation

Hey, did you see the new painting in the art gallery? It’s so unique!

Yeah, I saw it. IAGW, I didn’t really get it. What do you like about it?

Well, I love how the colors blend together and the abstract shapes. It’s refreshing!

Oh, I see. IAGW, I’m more into traditional art, but it’s cool that you appreciate it.
