What does TOY stand for in messages?

Thinking of you

While "TOY" makes people think of fun objects that kids (and adults) play with, it is also another way to communicate to someone you're thinking of them. People often use it at the end of a message, whether it be an email or text.

For example, you may end an email to a loved one with, "TOY on your anniversary. Love you!" Or, you may text your bf, "its hard for me to concentrate on hw when ive been toy 24/7."

Since TOY is a bit confusing if the other person doesn't know it as an acronym, you may want to use another option. Alternatives include TAY, crushing, and stanning.
