What does IKYD stand for?

I know you did

When you’re having a chat and you mention something you’ve done or felt, you might get a response that says IKYD (I know you did). This simply means the person you’re talking to had already figured you’d do or feel that way.

IKYD can come off as a bit presumptuous and slightly dismissive. It might feel like the person using it is making assumptions about you without really listening to what you’re saying.

That’s why it’s important to be mindful when using IKYD. You don’t want to unintentionally upset someone or give the impression that you’re ignoring their efforts. So, use it wisely and consider the context and the person you’re communicating with.
