What does YRAG stand for?

You are a geek

If someone sends you a message with ‘YRAG’, they’re playfully calling you a geek. This slang term is usually seen in text messages or chat conversations with your buddies, family members, or office mates.

YRAG can come off as a bit rough around the edges, but it’s often used as a term of endearment. If you’re on friendly terms with the person who sent it, they probably mean it as a cheeky compliment. They see your geeky side as part of your appeal.

However, the meaning of YRAG can shift depending on who’s sending it. If you’ve got a not-so-friendly relationship with the sender, like a rival or a difficult coworker, they might be using it to put you down. So, context is key.

Example for using ‘YRAG’ in a conversation

Just finished setting up my new computer, it’s a beast!

YRAG, but that’s why we love you.

Ha, thanks! I do love my tech toys.

That’s clear! Can you help me set up mine next?
