Are you serious?
I just heard that Tim is going out with Megan now.
Dead serious bro.
|RUS||Are you serious?|
|RYFS||Are you freakin' serious?|
|AYKM||Are you kidding me?|
|BST||But seriously though|
|IDS||I'm dead serious|
Frustrated and/or surprised people use AYS to mean "are you serious." This acronym is another way of asking "Rly? Srsly?"
You're most likely to receive AYS while chatting or texting with a friend or family member, after you've told them something they can't quite believe. If the message you sent was truly serious, you can respond to AYS with srs, IDS, 4rl, or frealz.
