What does BFTD stand for?

Best friends til death

Friends who are ride-or-die for each other use BFTD to mean "best friends til death." This acronym is a more realistic (and possibly pessimistic) version of BFF.

Those who use BFTD instead of BFF likely want to emphasize the extreme lengths to which they'd go for their best friend. They may also believe that friendships (like most ephemeral human things) do not persist past death.
