TBR

1. What does TBR stand for?

To be real

Someone who is dropping a truth bomb on you may start or end their message with TBR (to be real). This means the message contains the person's honest opinion.

Often, people use TBR when they are retracting a previous statement or saying something that contradicts conventional wisdom. For example, your friend Paulie might send you a message that says "TBR I don't really like pizza." (In which case, you could respond with "What??? HOW???")

Example

I know everyone likes Tswift but I can't stand her, tbr.
