What does IYKWIM stand for?

If you know what I mean

You’ll often notice IYKWIM in texts or on the internet. It’s a term that people use when they’re trying to help someone else see things from their perspective.

IYKWIM is usually used in a playful manner, almost like a secret nudge, when there’s a hidden or deeper meaning to the message. It’s like sharing an inside joke.

For instance, if you’re texting with a buddy, you might send something like, “John believes the issue isn’t with Lisa, but really it’s Mike, iykwim.” This is a way of subtly hinting at the real meaning behind your words.

Or, you might use it on social media with a post like, “My new puppy is so much fun IYKWIM.” This can be a fun way to share your joy and enthusiasm, with a little wink to those who understand your sense of humor.
