NC

NC has 4 meanings
1. What does NC stand for?

No comment

When you don't have anything to say on a particular matter, you can send "NC," which stands for "no comment." You can also use it when you want to say something controversial, but it's probably best if you don't say anything.

People in the public eye who are stalked by the media for a juicy comment are well familiar with the "no comment" routine. But for normal people, NC can still come in handy when texting or conversing online.

An example of when you might use NC is when you are asked for your opinion on decorations but you don't care. Or, you might be asked by your SO if their outfit makes them look fat, and you text them NC to avoid the trap.

Example

I have NC about the outfit you wore today.

2. What does NC mean when discussing relationships on Reddit?

No Contact

In Reddit's relationship-related subreddits, NC stands for "No Contact." No Contact is a strategy some Redditors recommend for recovering from intense breakups, by having no post-breakup contact with former SOs.

According to r/relationship_thoughts' Guide to No Contact, NC "is intended to speed the healing process after a break. Its goal is to make you OK again, either by helping you to forget the other person forever, or to get over them enough to be their friend."

While cutting an ex out of your life entirely might sound simple, NC is complicated enough that it has spawned its own subreddits, including r/ExNoContact and r/nocontact. There, those who are going or have gone through the No Contact process can share their stories and support each other.

Example

I've managed to have NC with him for three months now. I think I'm turning a corner.

3. What does NC stand for in poker?

Nice call

When a player makes a nice call in online poker, you can compliment them with "NC." You can also generally use the acronym when someone makes a smart decision, whether it be when gaming or a life choice (like not getting a face tattoo).

A call in poker is when a player decides to match a bet or raise made by another player to stay in the hand and compete for the pot (money bet during that round). A nice call is when you call a person's bet because you think they are bluffing or you simply have a better hand and you win the pot.

NC is one of many acronyms and abbreviations that increased in popularity as online gambling expanded in the late-1990s and 2000s. Other examples of poker slang includes "NH," "NP," and "WP."

Example

NC. You played that hand as well as you could.

4. What does NC stand for?

Not cool

NC is an acronym that stands for "not cool", which is another way to say that you don't approve of something a person said or did. It is typically seen online or in text messages.

The acronym may be used to disapprove of a variety of things, such as drinking out of the milk container, calling a person a vulgar name, or leaving the restaurant before the bill comes. The acronym is pretty obscure so you may just want to actually type out "not cool."

Example

Hey man, that is nc!
