Yr has 2 meanings
1. What does YR stand for in messages?

Yeah, right

When messaging online or in texts, "YR" may stand for "yeah, right." People may use yr to challenge someone's claim or to say that they don't believe something is true.

For example, if your hyperbolic friend brags about being able to bench press 400 pounds, you might reply with, "yr. i bet you can't even bench 250." Or, you might be gaming, and an arrogant gamer brags about his status, and you reply with, "yr, you play like such a noob."

While most people use yr to cast disbelief on someone's claim, they may also use it to answer in the affirmative or convey agreement. For example, you may reply with "YR" when your mom texts you, "Remember to get to the park 10 minutes before the ceremony starts."


I did a speedrun of Super Mario Brothers in under 5 minutes

2. What is yr short for?


Yr forgiven for not knowing that yr can mean "your." After all, yr can also stand for "year" or "yeah, right," so yr not at fault for not recognizing this abbreviation.

More commonly (to avoid being mistaken for "year"), texters and chatters use ur to stand for "your." However, that abbreviation can also stand for other words, such as "you're." If you want your message to be clear, you can always just type out "your" instead of using either yr or ur.
