What is grl short for?


Grl is a cool way of typing "girl" online and in texts. The abbreviation saves you from typing a whole extra character.

You will most likely see teens or young adults use the abbreviation when referring to a female (usually in the teenage or young adult range). For example, a high schooler may text his buddy, "Did you see the new grl at school today?"

However, you may also see it as a typo when people forget to include the "i." For example, your dad may text you, "When I saw the rerun on TV, I thought of you as a little grl!"
