1. What does WYD stand for?

What you doing?

When a person sends you "WYD" in a message, they are asking about what you are doing. It's the same as, "what's up?" or "what are you up to?"

For example, a person may text "WYD rn" to someone they romantically like on a Friday night when they have nothing to do. Or, a friend may message another friend "WYD on Thursday nite?" when inviting them to a game.

2. What does WYD mean in competition?

Who's your daddy?

When you dominate someone (or something) like a dad dominates a little child in a game, sport, etc, you become their "daddy." Then, you can message them "WYD," to boast about your dominance and their inferiority.

For example, if you beat your friend in a game online, you might message them, "pwnd! wyd, bb gurl?!? Or, you might boast about doing well on a test, "wyd, prof jameson! I dommed that final!"

WYD is one of many ways you can brag about something and taunt people. Other examples include KMB, LL, booyah, owned, and "take the L."


Ohhh! WYD now big boy?
