Direct message to a crush
I can't believe Lawrence's DM slide was successful. He got a date this Saturday.
|Slide into your DMs||To send a direct message on Twitter|
|Shoot your shot||You should go for it|
|CYM||Check your messages|
|MMB||Message me back|
|Creeper||A socially invasive person|
|DOM||Dirty old man|
|Booty call||An intimate rendezvous|
A DM slide is a direct message (DM) sent to a crush on a social platform, such as Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. The DM is a sly way to privately message a person instead of via a user's public profile.
Since DMs are private messages (PM), people often use the DM feature to communicate with others about a sensitive matter. In the case of most DM slides, they are messages where users shoot their shots.
Typically, people who just met are the ones to perform a DM slide. However, people who are friends with someone but are also too nervous to ask their friend out may do a DM slide.
As a heads up, you cannot slide into a user's DMs without being mutuals with them (following each other). Also, if the recipient does not reciprocate your feelings, they may label you as a creeper.
